Welcome to our August mid-month reminder for the STAMPlorations August CAS challenge. Thank you for those of you who have already linked up, your creations are amazing. And there is still a few weeks to join us with our gold challenge for a chance to win a gift card to the STAMPlorations store. The ladies of the DT have got together to showcase some amazing STAMPlorations products and inspire you.
I went super CAS for my card, trying to create a design which would be really easy to mass produce for my Christmas cards this year. I know it's only mid-August, but trust me, December will be sneaking up on us quicker that we think so it's about time to get started. So I stamped the Framed Christmas: Peace Love Joy in Versamark along with a sentiment from Christmas Flower and heat embossed everything in gold. Then I grabbed my Gansai Tambi watercolours and coloured the image. Really quick and easy, perfect for mass-producing. I did create a batch of smaller 10x10cm cards using the same design so that's at least half of my Christmas cards for work all sorted out!
