CAS and Candy

For those who have seen my cards and crafts, you know that I don't do CAS (clean and simple).  In fact, it is a difficult challenge for me.  I love embellishments and layers and extras.  So, I saw this challenge, Just One Word , over @ simply less is more and thought that i could do this.  Well, after fighting with it, this is what I came up with.  

This is a stamp from Hero Arts Penny Black.  I stamped the image in Ripe Avacado and used clear embosing powder.  The sentiment is stamped in basic black classic ink.  I used a light green rhinestone to add a bit of sparkle at the top of the tree.   
Now for Candy! Blog candy, that is.  It's pretty simple.  Post a comment to this blog entry.  Just let me know one goal you hope to accomplish this new year.  Easy peasy.  The winner will be announced on Sunday morning.  Start the new year right with a new, un-opened roll of vanilla seam binding and an brand new, un-mounted Create A Cupcake clear mount stamp set.

My goal for 2012? I have two.
The first is to be more adventurous and learn new techniques with my card making.
The second is to learn to speak some basic Russian so that I can converse with our new neighbours.
The first, no problem, the latter we'll wait and see!
Happy 2012
Love Sheila x

Hi Sharon, this is a great CAS card, no-one would think you weren't too happy with 'less'.
I believe however, that the stamp you used is from Penny Black, called Christmas Usher.
Thanks so much and a Happy New Year to you and yours.

Sharon I think you did a fabulous job on this card. My hope for next year is to work on updating my blog more often, I make things but don't post them. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Hi! My goal is to step outside of my self even more with my stamping, to learn more techniques and to share more with others not only on my blog but in my workshops/stampcamps. :-)
Thanks for the candy and hope you have a safe and happy new year!

FABBY CAS card . . . you rocked it.

One of my goals for next year is to try new techniques out on the craft front. For a start, I must buy some masking fluid . . .

Happy 2012 to you.
