Just Add Ink CAS Christmas

DSCF8501

Just a quick post of two CAS Christmas cards using a lovely sketch from Just Add Ink.  Here’s the sketch:

JAI24

I did take the liberty of moving my sentiments to the upper right hand corner as they would not fit in the lower right!  The first uses a retired SU set, Peaceful Wishes:

The image was stamped in Mellow Moss and the berries colored with a blender pen and Rich Razzleberry, right over the MM.  This also qualifies for the Stampin’ Royalty challenge, Seeing Double, where you stamp two of an image.  Sentiment was also stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

My second card was an experiment to see what green hue in the current SU color family lineup would work with Rich Razzleberry.  I tried River Rock as a substitute for my beloved Mellow Moss; not as nice as I had hoped for, but I am not one to toss something unless it’s REALLY bad, so I added a rhinestone to redeem it:

This uses the Medallion set and Many Merry Messages.  So, if you’re a demonstrator, what color will YOU be using as a substitute for Mellow Moss?  I’d like to get some feedback! 

Thanks for visiting today—we’ll be setting sail to take a little boat ride later, then watching fireworks on the water!  I hope you have fun today too!

  9. LeAnne, these are really beautiful. I LOVE the first one (I think it's the Mellow Moss, you're right!). River Rock still looks good; your Medallion card is gorgeous. I love your take on the Just Add Ink sketch.

  14. I like your Peaceful Wishes card, LeAnne. It is CAS and just perfect. I know it take a bit of time to ink up that stamp with two tones, though, so it's not as quick-going as it looks!

  15. Oh LeAnne, you always do such amazing work. Wow - what a great card. (actually they are both great) Great job with the doubles challenge here at Stampin' Royalty.
