CAS2 - Day7 - Christmas in the air

On day 7 of the online card class our teachers showed us how we could use all sizes of stamps to create an impact on our clean and simple cards. Guest designer Cristina Kowalcyk proved that you can create a great card with a lot of tiny stars and one heart. She inpired me to make the following card.

I discovered I had quite a few tiny stamps hidden away in several stamp sets, including quite a few snowflakes (much smaller even than this one by Verve Stamps) and several heart stamps. This online class does make you look at your stamps in an entirely new way, which is great.

Materials used:
Snowflake & sentiment stamp - Verve Stamps (Christmas in the Air set)
Heart stamp - Brandless 'love and marriage' set (from Action shop, the Netherlands)
Inks - Memento tuxedo black & Tsukineko VersaColor scarlet
Cardstock - Neenah solar white

I'd like to this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Ho Ho H2O!
Great Impressions - Have a heart
7 or less challenge #1 - Use a maximum of 7 items on your card


  1. Thanks for the link to the new challenge ... love this awesome card you created with just a few supplies .... fabulous repeated image and the pop of red is perfection ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  2. I love a nice CAS card - great job on yours! Beautifully done, Marianne! Thanks for joining us in our February challenge at Great Impressions Stamps!

  3. Oh, I love the pop of color the red heart gives to this card! Thank you so much for entering the 7 or less challenge =)

  4. the pop of red is fabulous and perfectly suits the sentiment. 7 or less sounds like a fun challenge and a real challenge. :)

  5. what a BRILLIANT use of those tiny stamps (which i confess i find a challenge at times, but clearly you do not!!!) as well as being one amazing C&S design AND you've got maybe the best sentiment ever. so just ALL ROUND fabulous, i'd say!!! ♥♥♥!
