STAMPlorations reminder .....

Happy Thursday folks .....

Time for a little reminder about this month's STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge 

As always the theme is Anything Goes .... with that optional colour twist.
November's colour is one of my favourite's  ....

Perfectly CAS and so quick and easy, using one of the recent new release set of stamps ....... Warm Hands, Warm Hearts ...... there are some festive images on there but ..... a pretty parcel is useful for so many occasions.

I simply stamped the parcel onto white cardstock and embossed with a clear powder ......

Coloured it using Distress ink for the parcel and a bit of gold paint for the ribbon.  I then fussy cut around the image, leaving a narrow white border around the edge ....... if you're not that keen on fussy cutting there is a matching set of CUTplorations dies for this stamp set which makes things a little easier

I stamped my greeting directly onto my card ..... one of the great sayings from the Party Time set .... and added a touch of colour to match the parcel.

I attached the parcel over the top using foam pads for dimension and finished off with a few sparkly sequins.

Thanks for popping by ... enjoy the rest of your day.

It's a busy week for us STAMPlorations girls .... don't forget as well as all the regular challenges we having running, we've also got our 2nd Giving Thanks Blog Hop and Linky Party.

Check out the blog for some fabulous designs from the STAMPlorations girls and our 15 Guest Designers.  You'll find all the details over there along with a list of amazing prizes up for grabs.

Cheerio until next time ......
