CAS-ing Christmas

Three CAS cards I made today.  One card is for One Layer Wednesday.  The other cards are just some ideas I had and thought I would try out.   All these cards were made using Hero Arts stamps.

The first card is my One Layer Wednesday card.   I used the Hero Arts set Merriest Wishes.   When I bought the set it was because I liked the three different trees that are included and I didn't pay much attention to the other "bits & pieces" in the set.... until today.  While looking at the trees this curvy line down at the bottom of the set caught my eye.  It is the perfect line for creating that gentle "hilly" look on a card!  Love it!   I'm going to be making a few more of these cards and then I will be sending them off to North Dakota where they will be distributed to inmates at the North Dakota State Penitentiary.  All the details can be found here.

The second card uses the Wreath of Leaves cling from Hero Arts.  I stamped it on kraft cardstock using the now retired SU! color Handsome Hunter (craft version).  The perfect green to use on kraft I think....  I hadn't used that ink pad in probably 5 years and it was still as juicy as the day I first used it!   

The final card uses the Trees of the Season clings (winter tree).  I stamped the tree on red cardstock using cream ink.   The results???  Pinkish trees!  Oh well... I backed the trees with cream cardstock in an effort to lessen the pinkish hue. 

Thanks for taking a peek... hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Supplies:  Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  SU! Handsome Hunter craft ink; PTI Vintage Cream & Pure Poppy; Brilliance Coffee Bean & Pearlescent Ivy; Cardstock:  Gina K. Rocket Red; PTI Vintage Cream, White & Kraft; Ribbon:  SU! Real Red
