It's CAS time at Addicted to Stamps & More!

Good evening friends!
I've been slowly trying to get all of my Christmas creations done so that I can send them out!
So I wanted to share with you a simple way to get them done if you haven't yet with our challenge over at
(Click badge to be taken to the blog!)

The challenge for this week is my fave - CAS = Clean & Simple
For all the CAS inspiration from the DT, please be sure to visit the challenge blog!

We also have a great sponsor joining with us this week as well:
(click badge to be taken to the store.)
They are giving away SEVEN digital images to a lucky winner!  So be sure you don't miss out!

They were also kind enough to give the design team some images to work with and here's what I've come up with using one of them:
I had so much fun with this card!  I have used this gorgeous digital stamp from Bugaboo called Snowflake Reindeer Silhouette.  Before printing it out on my computer, I had some options from my word.doc program to change up the color, so I thought it would be fun to print it up like this.  I like how some of the snowflakes turned out light brown and some white within the image.

After I printed it out, I took my LF Stitched Rectangle die to cut it out.  I then took a sentiment from one of my stamp sets in my stash and stamped it with Early Espresso ink. (I can't recall right now which set it was from! LOL!)   I decided to cut out a layer of Early Espresso card stock to put behind it as well as cut a couple of snowflakes from a Memory Box die I had.  I also cut an additional one out with glitter paper to add with the brown ones.  I've also taken my photo corner punch and punched out a couple from the glitter paper to put on two of the corners behind my brown panel.

This entire layer was popped up over my white A2 sized card base with some craft foam or fun foam for extra dimension.  I love the brown color with the sparkle added to it!

Hope you've enjoyed my CAS creation today!
This will be last challenge as a design team member for them.  Just wanted to say thanks to Kylie and the other girls for having me along this last year...I sure had fun!!

Thanks so much stopping by!  See you soon!
