Today’s featured new CAS-ual Friday stamp set is called Merry Kiss-mas.  As soon as I saw the little gifts, I knew I wanted to line them up and dress them up with patterned paper.

I used my favorite Christmas Paper Pack Carta Bella’s Merry & Bright for that.  The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. Five presents were stamped in the center of the card with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

The bottom right corner was rounded and a sentiment was stamped right under the presents.  Don’t you just love that font? Three rhinestones from Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones next of the sentiment finish off the card. Now this is one quick Christmas card.

For my second card I had to use Debby Hughes amazing layout again. I can see this becoming one of my go to sketches for CAS cards. For this one I started by cutting the edge of a 3″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock with the Notebook Edge Die-namics die. The mistletoe image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. It was colored with Copic Markers (G24, G28) and Liquid Pearls were added to create the berries.

The long thin sentiment was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the notebook edge before red ribbon was tied around the top of the layers. The bow was topped off with a button, tied on with silver cord. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The bottom corner was rounded to finish off the card.

Make sure you check the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp blog to see more samples created with the new set.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and smiles

  11. Hi Beate, it has been a while since I commented, been checking in on you and your wonderful work, but just too tired to type much. That bad hurricane hit our area, and there has not been a great amount of time for me crafting or on the computer, but I hope to get back to my old routine soon. We had no power for 5 days, thank god for generators!!
    Love this CAS card of yours, so wonderfully cute and yet so quick and easy. Some times I am my own worstenemyy, get road block I think because I am thinking too hard. All these wonderful dies came into play and I seem to have forgotten all my wonderful stamps, have to learn to combine the two more frequently.
    Thanks for all youwonderfulfu inspiration and keep up the great work.
