Tis the Season for CAS Christmas

Hello again.  Ready for the weekend?

There's still time to join in at CAS Christmas
and get a head start on those Christmas cards.

Trina is hosting this month and she chose...

I've used this adorable stamp from Penny Black, colored
with Copic markers and fussy cut the image out.

The brick background is dry embossed and the mantel
is a snippet of textured cardstock.

I'm going to take my snippet over to
Pixie's Snippet Playground
I hope you're feeling better, Di.

I have a twofer too.

Just a bit different but using the same techniques.

Our Guest Designer, Helen, has joined our Design Team
to astound  you with some inspiration pieces.
I hope you'll check them out and join in at

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

You do have some of the cutest stamps. This image just makes me smile. Your coloring is outstanding and love the embossed brick you used behind it. Both cards are wonderfully designed.

Mac Mable said...

Both of your cards are super cute, love the image and the texture form the dry embossing x

Very sweet! I have that little mouse stamp and haven’t used it yet, I don’t think.

Barb Ghig said...

Super CUTE Christmas cards, Bonnie! Your little mouse is darling and I love how you included the brick wall for your background! I think I 'need' this stamp :) Barb xx

Oh Bonnie that mouse in the stocking is so cute - and you have really made a pair of beautiful cards with it!! Love them both

JosieD said...

This stamp is so precious! And, of course, the magic Bonnie touches with the coloring and creating the look of a mantle with the brick EF and snippet top it off. You win The Cutest Stocking Card Award in my book...smiles.

Two darling cards with that sweet image. Love the texture of the brick embossing folder.

Carole said...

I really love these cute but so clean and crisp looking. I like the embossing behind your images.

Helen said...

Bonnie, what a fun stamp (love it and may have to buy that cutie). Great layouts for the circle and rectangular layouts :)

Susan said...

Two fabulous Christmas cards! Love both layouts but slightly prefer the green one. The winning card for CAS Christmas this month, in my opinion!

Sandy said...

Love both of these cards - especially the one that is off center. I have to admit, I am a sucker for mice. I could kiss this baby's nose and tickle his tummy!!
Adorable - a real image to make the heart smile.

Sandy said...

Is there anything you CAN'T color with!!!! In inquiring minds want to know!

Papercraft Boutique said...

Both cards are so cute, Bonny! Great Copic coloring and wonderful texture of the brick wall embossing. Love both layouts!

Awesome designs for your two stocking cards, Bonnie. LOVE the sweet image with the mouse snuggled in the top of the stocking. Great texture from the brick embossing. xx

Your CAS cards are just outstanding Bonnie. So cute and so much glorious white space. Wonderful.

Hugs, Sarn

Both cards are adorable, Bonnie.

These cards are darling. I love the card design--a great one for featuring small images. Thank you for sharing this.

Linda said...

Bonnie, your mouse sleeping in the stocking is just too adorable. Both cards are fantastic. It was so nice meeting and stamping with you this past weekend. Have a great weekend.
