Yeti For Christmas!


Hello!

It's another blustery day here and I'm about to set out to do my rounds bathing dogs and clipping nails.  First though I want to share a card for the Inkspirational Anything Christmas Goes challenge.  This MFT Christmas Yeti is a favorite - he's so cute all tangled up in those lights!  I paired him with a cool striped background die from Taylored Expressions.  I like that the stripes are different sizes - it adds a fun element to it.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red) Stampin' Up!
Stamps:  (All from Beast Friends) My Favourite Things
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Diagonal stripes cover plate) Taylored Expressions
Markers:  (R17, R32, Y06, G14, B29, W1, W3, W5) Copic

Hello and happy Monday!

I've got a card to share for the current CAS on Friday challenge to make a Christmas card.  I used some WPlus9 poinsettias and paired them with some American Crafts glitter tape.  I realised that I often use turquoise with poinsettia images and thought maybe I should try something else but hey, if it ain't broke...

Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (All from Pretty Poinsettias) WPlus9
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Reds, greens, yellow) Altenew

CASology #323


Welcome to Week 323 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



To me, north in winter time means snow snow snow!  I don't usually make cards with anything snow related - it feels wrong since we never have any here.  However, this sweet set from Neat & Tangled was irresistible and has now come in handy for this challenge!

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!


Link your creations to the CASology blog by Monday, 17 December at 9am (CDT).
