A CAS Christmas

Hello friends!  Cathy here with several cards to share with you using some newer stamp sets from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.  CAS (Clean and Simple) is a style I struggle with, but this first card using the Peace on Earth stamp set is simply elegant and very easy to reproduce....especially with Christmas closing in on us!

The dove image from Peace on Earth and the sentiment from the Christmas Innies set were gold embossed on white card stock.  Square dies were used to cut the frame and pop up the dove image.  Each panel was matted with gold card stock and a small bow made with gold metallic thread was added to finish the card.

If you were around for last year's SNSS Birthday Celebration, you will remember that Korin had designed four single stamps that were given away with your purchase.  Many of you asked if these sets could be made available for purchase.  As SNSS is nearing its 10th anniversary,  we've decided to do just that!  One of the little singles, Hope Anchors, was combined with the Be Encouraged 2 stamp set to make the following card.

The Hope Anchors sentiment was split to fit the sketch which was a challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The papers are from Graphic 45.  The stars found in my stash of embellishments were gold so I covered them with VersaMark ink and silver embossed them to match the anchor.

The stamp sets used for these cards are available now at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.
Be sure to check out these and the other little mini stamp sets just added to the store.

Thanks so much for stopping by...enjoy your weekend!
