CPS 94 & CASing Charmaine

It's Friday already?? Wow...the weeks are just flying by, aren't they?

I have a sketch card today, as well as a CASED card.

My first card uses CPS 94, and some more adorable snowmen (Simply Single Snowmen). The background is created using my Simply Single Snowflake stamp (this is retiring and on sale for 40% off right now). I used my Creative Memories Decorative trimmer on my Spring Rain card stock for the wavy edge, then used my Quickie Glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds to add sparkle to the "snow".

Accessories: 12-inch Decorative Trimmer (Creative Memories), Long Rectangle Nestabilities, A Muse sheer ribbon, Quickie Glue pen & Dazzling Diamonds,
While blurfing, I came across a gorgeous card made by Charmaine...and was inspired to create this next card. I needed some quick and beautiful cards to send to my brothers and sisters, so I whipped these together. Charmaine's card is amazing with the pop of red from her floral tree topper and ribbon, but I decided to make my card monochromatic, and stamp the sentiment (Holiday Script) on the inside instead. Thanks for the inspiration, Charmaine!!

Thanks so much for your visit, and have a wonderful weekend!!

LOVE the snowman card! It's adorable! I have a question about the 2nd card, so stunning by the way, is that an embossing folder you used? It's so gorgeous! I love the simple colors used. Have a great day and hope you get a lot done!

Rose Ann...these are stunningly beautiful, and oh-so-perfect for Christmas cards. They really turned out elegant, which for me at least is hard to do with just white cardstock, but this cb folder is GORGEOUS!! LOVE your silver accents on the tree. :) Thanks for the link too--I missed Charmaines card. It's beautiful too. xx
