CYCI#99 Color Challenge

Hey friends!

This week at www.canyoucaseit.com it's all about color!



I love mostly traditional Christmas colors, but really any color combination can be fun.  I chose to go with the traditional red, white and green for this card:



 I first saw this cute reindeer on Dena Rekow's Youtube channel here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7c_YFzxJfE


I just knew I had to CASE her reindeer and so I made a bunch of them to use on cards. I think I made about 40 and used mostly paper scraps for the punch art.  My desk was a mess!

I used the following Stampin' Up! products:

Real Red, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip Cardstock
Real Red Glimmer Paper
Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum
Garden Green Ink Pad
Lighthearted Leaves Stamp Set

OSAT Blog Hop - Halloween/Fall


Wasn't Tina's project beautiful?

This month we have a Halloween/Fall theme. I wanted to try a new technique, so I decided to use the painter's tape technique.  It is so easy! I love the grungy look of this card.  I actually wasn't going to get the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set and Punch at first, but who could resist those cute acorns?


Up next is Diane.  I'm excited to see what she has in store for us!  Thanks for joining us on the OSAT Blog Hop and thanks for stopping by!
