Black, White and Gold over at Addicted to CAS!

Hi crafty friends!

Its time for a new challenge over at Addicted to CAS and the code words are Black, White and Gold! You can create some serious striking cards with that combination, but honestly, I don’t think I’ve once used only those three colors on a card before, but that the beauty of challenges, try new things, technics and take your papercrafting to the next level! 🙂

Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps and the prize is three digis. Yay and Good Luck!


The hostess this week is our wonderful Barb, I’m sure you already know her, but if you don’t, check out her blog, she makes wonderful cards AND she is such a sweet person!

Our guest designer is Pia and don’t miss to visit her blog, she is so talented!

Over to my card, really simple with three stamped black borders and a gold glitter die cut sentiment. It’s so pretty in real life, but I guess that you all now that it’s hard to take photos of shiny or glittery cards. Anyway, I hope you like it and that you come over and play with us over at Addicted to CAS!

Christmas tag with stocking

Hi! Today I made a Christmas tag with a stocking stamp from Clearly Besotted,  In stitches Christmas. I inked the edges with distress ink and stamped first and second generation dots on the background. I stamped the stocking with brown and red ink and cut it out leaving a thin white border. I made a little hole in the stocking with a piercing tool and thread a red and white bakerstwine through. This tag is ending up on a present to my mother in law. I love wrapping presents! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and take care!
