Take Three: Winter Day 4

Good day to all!! Thank you for stopping by 4 of the Take Three: Winter previews :)  I have been enjoying stamping with these new images and I am LOVING today's sentiments too.


I love CAS cards...but you already know that about me.  I am always wowed by stamping white ink on kraft and black cardstock so I thought today I would showcase white on kraft!  I began by stamping the different snowflake images, then I coloured them after which I stamped the sentiments below the images.  I really love the sentiments used on this card.  I know I will be using them for a variety of upcoming projects.


  1. Create card base and layers.
  2. Stamp images in white and colour using spica markers and copics markers.
  3. Stamp sentiments.
  4. Adhere all layers.
Stamp Set(s):  Take Three Winter by PTI available November 15th
Cardstock: Kraft by PTI, Ocean Tides by PTI, Raspberry Fizz by PTI

CARD # 2

Using traditional holiday colours, I put together this holiday themed card.  I began by stamping the background, followed by the image and then I stamped the sentiment on the cream ribbon.
I distressed the edges and sponged them too.  I also added a hint of green ribbon along with a hint of green on the flourish.  You'll notice I outlined the inner flourish and added a scalloped edge at the bottom.


  1. Create card base, layers and paper scraps. Distress and sponge.
  2. Stamp background and image. Outline inner image using copic marker.
  3. Stamp sentiment on ribbon.
  4. Attach ribbons and adhere scalloped edge
  5. Adhere remaining layers.

Alli, I am amazed at the many christmas cards you design. You make them through out the year and by the time december rolls around, you must have a simply awesome stash of cards to pull out and use!
