CAS and then not so much...

I've got two cards I just finished that I want to share with you, then I'm off to bed!  If you're looking for my 52{C}CT post, just scroll down a bit.  Sorry everyone!  I just have to blog these NOW because I don't know what tomorrow will bring!

Here's the first one--CAS~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~




I've used some brand new stamps!!!  The snowflakes are by Technique Tuesday and the sentiment is from my very first Paper Smooches set!  SO exciting!  The patterned paper and rhinestones are from my stash and the rest of the supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

Here's the second card--not so CAS~

Details~





For these fabulous challenges~

IBSIC-#41

This card utilizes stamps from Inspired By Stamping, gems and patterned paper from my stash, and the rest is again from Stampin' Up!.

Thanks so much for coming and taking a peek at my cards!  I hope you come join in the fun at these fabulous challenges and happy stamping! :)  Time for bed...

Hi Mynnette, stunning card for our sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches. So elegant and I love the bling! The sentiment is quite unusual, love that too! Thanks for playing along with us again

Mynnette I think both of these are just gorgeous. The first one I LOVE the placement of the gem above the sentiment (papersmooches-ya gotta love them!) and the second I like the light brown and pink combo and such a great sentiment. Thanks for joining us at CAS-Colour and Sketches, we are pleased to see you again and hope you join us next week.

Both fab cards, Mynnette! I like the crispness of the first one, and the way you used IBS stamps to perfection on the second. Thanks for playing with us at IBS this week. :)

These are both lovely cards. I especially like how you've used the ISBIC colors in the second one. The papers, colors, and stamps coordinate beautifully. The petite pearls here and there give it just the right amount of sparkle.

Two fabulous cards Mynnette! The sketch challenge card is a great color combination ... love those beautiful and delicate snowflakes with the rhinestone centers. Looks like the sentiment is embossed (maybe enter it into Addicted to CAS - embossing challenge??).

The second card is a gorgeous nature card. Love your mix of DP and your flowers are so beautiful. The sentiment is very inspirational! Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps & More.
