CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 245

Emily's third challenge for the month is a colour one and also the first one for this year's Design Team call. You can find more information about the Design Team call on the CC&S Challenge Blog.



I love these colours and found a stamp set that I thought would do them justice.

Embossing Paste and Ink Refills

This weekend's classes were really fun but they got a little messy when the embossing paste, ink refills and glitter came out to play.

Did you know that you can colour the Embossing Paste and have it co-ordinate with any of the Stampin' Up! cardstock? There are so many different things you can do with the white stuff -
  • Use it plain
  • Colour it with Ink Refills
  • Do an ombre effect with the Ink Refills
  • Glitter it
Plus other things we didn't get around to trying in the class.

Here's one of my samples that wasn't made at the class.

CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 244


Emily has a sketch challenge for us this week.


When I saw the sketch, my first thought was baubles but I decided not to go with this because I thought it was a little too obvious. I tried a few ideas none of which I was happy with and in the end settled on this.

One Big Meaning - Thank You cards

I spent a couple of days last week making a stack of thank you cards for my lovely team of Acorns.

I kinda knew from the outset what I wanted to do. And, once I had made a card that I was happy with, I set up a bit of a production line to make things a little easier and quicker for making all of the rest.


Here are the various steps that I followed 26 times before moving onto the next one.
