Have you got your morning coffee?! I have a lot to show you - Today, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is showing off the beautiful stamp set Sleigh Ride along with the Sleigh Fri-Dies!
My first creation is a Christmas card - old fashioned in its traditional colours but oh- so pretty!
For the gold highlights along the "runners", I simply swiped the bottom of the diecut through Versamark ink and then dipped it into gold embossing powder and heat set it to a pretty shine!
Using the middle die (I know!! These Fri-dies have 4 large pieces!) I diecut red cardstock and gold heat embossed the sentiment from Sleighride. I adhered the red panel onto the kraft background.
I diecut and coloured the sweet little holly leaves and attached them to the sleigh. I popped the sleigh onto a white snowy handcut hill and attached it to my patterned paper which was adhered to my card base. - quick and easy!
I had to get some more glitter in there and my Diamond Stickles came in handy - I ran a bead of prettiness across the top of the snowy hill!
This stamp set and die also lends itself to Christmas decor so for my next project I just had to make a little Christmas decoration! My grandma always used to have a bowl of peppermints ready and waiting for us when we visited - they were so cool and refreshing. What better way to showcase them than in a little sleigh!
I stamped one of our new backgrounders, Starlequin, onto white cardstock making my own patterned paper by colouring in some of the open spaces with a red copic.
I diecut the inside panel of the sleigh from my new patterned paper and adhered it to the red sleigh - I made two of these and set them to the side.
Using an easy tutorial from Splitcoaststampers, I made a simple little box and attached it to the insides of the sleigh. I added a few little sparkly gold gumdrops and filled it with peppermints - just perfect!
Come on back tomorrow for some more CAS-ual Fridays Christmas goodness!
