Hello friends! Here's another card I copied from Pinterest...really love this one! I used the Fun Stamper's Journey Newsprint stamp for my background again. Stampin Up's Butterfly Basics for the rest. Colors are Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe. I used a watercolor brush to color the flowers.
Time for a new challenge on the CASE-ing Christmas blog, and a reminder that yes, it is time to get busy making your Christmas cards for the year! How about a little inspiration? Here's our card for you to CASE made by Asha.
Isn't it beautiful? I love the sky and those snowflakes!
I used the same broken stitching around the edge. The stamped scene is gold embossed on watercolor paper, then I did a watercolor wash over the top with distress inks. I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder, die cut, and popped it up on foam tape. This is a Stampin Up set called The Newborn King.
How will you be inspired by Asha's card this month? I really can't wait to see all of your ideas!

I've got another Great Impressions card to share with you today. This one uses a new release: Blue Skies D504 paired with an older one: Hot Air Balloon F549.
My background is very simple: I just used cardstock with a couple pieces of washi tape. I wanted my scene to really be the focal point. The background was done with twinkling H2Os and the rest was colored with Copics.
These little sequins came from somebody in a card swap and I thought they were the perfect size for the image.
Thank you for stopping by today! If you like to use Great Impressions stamps remember that you can post your creations in the Customer Gallery. You may even win something!
My card today was made for the Make My Monday Challenge. I love the watercolor look here and wanted to try and recreate it as best I could.
I don't have much experience with watercolor, but I gave it a shot. I used Distress Inks for my background.
Isn't it a pretty good likeness of the inspiration? I'm happy with it!
