CAS Colours and Sketches #399


Wow!  It's December already.  It's odd how during what often seems like the slowest year on record, the months themselves seem to pass quickly.  It's Tuesday once again and we have a new color trio compliments of Patricia over at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge blog.  

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.

I took the metallic silver as the incentive I needed to pull out my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil machine.  I've had it for months now (maybe even a year???) but I've only played with it once.  I won't lie.  It took me four tries to get this one right but I do love it.  

Once the foiling was complete this was a very easy card to create. I die cut the panel and adhered it to a mint colored card base leaving just a bit of the mint peeking out along the sides.  I die cut the sentiment out twice, the words in blush and the ampersand in mint.  I stacked them for just the tiniest bit of dimension and adhered the three pieces to the center of the wreath.  As a final touch I added in some mint and clear droplets over top of the silver berries of the foiled wreath.

Ellen Hutson - Merry & Bright die set
Studio Katia - mint/clear droplets

I hope I've inspired you to pull out, dust off, and used your coveted but underutilized tools.  In the meantime check out our blog and come join in the fun!

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!
