Thank goodness for some very creative and talented people out there in blogland who share their beautiful creations.  I was so inspired by a couple of cards that I CASEd (Copy and Share with Everyone) them.  And here they are all ready for Christmas mailing.


The falling snow was created by flicking masking fluid on the card base and then sponging with various blue inks over the top of it.  Once done sponging, the masking fluid was easily rubbed off to show the white card base beneath.  A 1″ circle punched from masking paper was used for the moon and torn masking paper was used for the hills.


So fun I had to do several!


CASed from Heather Telford.

This card is being entered into a couple of challenges this week:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:  “TO THE MOON”

Less is More: Week 198 Theme “MORE THAN ONE TREE”

Absolutely adored the sketch on this second card.


And you can’t go wrong stamping random blobs.


It was a blast… obviously!

  20. Two very different & equally lovely card sets. Those splats are amazing. Love the bright traditional colors of the palette against that crisp white background. Loved the way you set the green at an angle…great layout. Heather is an inspiration to me, as well, when I see those sponged snowy banks. Yours turned out splendidly and your beautiful trees grace these snowbanks so icily. Good job on the CASE-ing. TFS

  21. That first card is amazing!! LOVE the snowy scene you created!! Such a fun second card with the splatter too 🙂 Great work time s two!

  22. Your first card is gorgeous, Susan. The second one I’ve seen with the masking fluid spatter. I guess I’m going to have to get some. The second card is so fun and festive.
