CAS That Was Much Fun

I was blog hopping and came across Colleen Dietrich's Pastel Sleigh Ride and knew I had to try something like it!  The sleigh is from Flourishes Sleigh Ride and the Pine boughs are from Impression Obsession's Winter View.  The words are from Flourishes Meet Me Under the Mistletoe.

I stamped the sleigh with Brilliance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, painted it with Twinkling H2O's, cut it out and embellished it with a punched Paper Shapers Small Snowflake, added Glossy Accents and Deco Art Glamour Dust, then set it aside.

I punched a border on pink parchment paper with a Martha Stewart Around The Page Punch as shown.  I used a Spellbinders Floral Doily Motif die with Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Laid paper.  I cut it in half as shown and mounted it on the pink parchment paper.

Another piece was embossed with one of the folders from Sizzix's Flourish, Dots, and Ribbon set.  A piece of SU DP paper was cut for the background.  The white embossed paper was mounted on that followed by the pink parchment, the die cut, a piece of lace, and then the sleigh.

I stamped the Pine boughs using SU Certainly Celery Classic dye ink on some white CS, cut out, mounted as shown.  Snowflakes were die cut with Cuttlebug's Snowflake #2 die and mounted as shown.  I applied Glossy Accents to all of the centers, added pearl stickers to the centers, then dusted with Deco Arts Glamour Dust.  The ribbon was tied with the Bow-Easy and mounted with a glue-dot.

The base below was done with the same white CS and SU DP stamped with Impression Obsession Winter View Pine boughs and SU Certainly Celery.  A Spellbinders Fancy Tags One die was used for the word base, then the top was stenciled.  The words are from Flourishes Meet Me Under The Mistletoe.  If I made some grammatical mistakes, I apologize.  Somehow tonight I seem to be in a fog.  LOLOL  So if you have questions, please feel free to ask!

I must be doing something wrong with the Inlinkz Link Manager.  I liked it, but it just seemed to take so much time always adding new links.  Oh well, hope your weekend was great and thanks for stopping by to look and share.

Shirley, this is awesome! I love a sleigh and have only one sleigh image and it doesn't stamp well. I need to purchase this one from Flourishes.
Awesome work, as usual.

Hello From Texas said...

WOW Shirley, this is a gorgeous card. I really love the sleigh. it turned out so well!! Beautiful, beuatiful card.

You asked about watering my home foundation: Texas soil has a lot of clay and home foundations are laid directly on top of the soil. In order to keep the foundation, and home, from cracking an even moisture level has to be maintained around the house. If we have normal seasons, then its not really a problem, but we are in a deep drought, so we have to manually water our foundations. :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog
