It is definitely winter here in Kansas! Snow and 20-30's temps.......Brrrrr!
The Clearly Whimsy Stamps DT has a fabulous new challenge blog called showCASe your style. You do NOT have to use Whimsy products to play along but if you do, the gift certificate will be more if you are the winner!
The challenge runs 2 weeks and uses this GORGEOUS color palette of gold, black, silver, and white. Use the colors along with the inspiration photo if you so choose and play along!
I am mostly a CAS girl. My card for the challenge is still CAS but layered! I embraced the white space and added the layers of colors from the challenge. The silver glitter "Christmas" word and gold mat behind were diecut using Glitzy Glitter Cardstock by DCWV. This paper is the bomb! The word "Christmas" was diecut three times--one silver glitter, one white, and one black. The black layer was offset just a bit to really make the word stand out!
The snowflake frame was stamped with the Sparkle and Shine stamp set from Whimsy Stamps using Gold and Silver Delicata ink from Tsukineko. Everything was layered together and 4mm Gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added.
We'd LOVE to see your CAS cards using this gorgeous color palette over at
I am also linking this up to my friend, Virginia's challenge to use metallics........HERE.
Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
