CAS-UAL Fridays challenge for this week is to do a Craft Dash - a 10 minute creation. This also fits the Simon Says Stamp challenge for something Christmassy.
First of all, quick and easy is usually not in my crafting vocabulary. It takes me more then 10 minutes sometimes just to pick the color I want!!! So I figured I just had to put my mind to the challenge and to see what I could come up with. Well, guess what, I have two cards to share with you and they use my brand new Paper Smooches stamps that arrived at my door recently. I think that NEW always has a certain piece of inspiration that comes with it.
I picked a folding tag from one of my Cricut cartridges. This took seconds to cut out and then what made the stamped images so fast is I put three different stamps on the same block at the same time and then colored it very simply. The plaid piece is paper tape from Recollections.
For my second card, I opened a mini pad of papers from Carta Bella, Winter Fun. The silhoutte kids, the trees and the blue flourish are all printed on the paper already. I just cut the piece to fit my card.
I stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment and a few extra snowflakes and then gave the flourish extra accent with some blue Liquid Pearls, self adhesive rhinestones to the stamped snowflakes.
Here is the CAS-UAL Fridays challenge.
