Casual Fridays Christmas Release - Day 4

Well, we are half way through CAS-ual Fridays Christmas Release and how much fun is this??!   I am loving seeing all of the other designers beautiful creations - it has really put me in the Christmas mood - crazy right??

Don't forget to comment on our blog posts for a chance to win one of 3- $15 gift certificates from Michele at CAS-ual Fridays stamps!

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!

Using the Sleigh Fri-Dies, I diecut the outside of the sleigh in kraft cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug wood embossing folder.

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!
