CAS-ual Fridays Stamps - Girl Friday post for October

Hi everybody, its getting closer to the end of the week and I can't wait to sleep in on Saturday morning!! I have lots of my own gardening to do but the whole weekend to do it. I usually go and play a lot of basketball with Max but he sprained his ankle playing basketball at school on Tuesday and has to keep his foot up and rested until that's a bummer!! Maybe I'll go skateboarding with Phoebe (which means I run behind her trying to catch up...).

I'm on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog today with a Christmas card to share with you all. I'm really enjoying using stencils more often now, and wanted to try one of the CFS stencils with my new paste:

If you haven't tried the new Nuvo Glacier Paste yet your missing a real treat. Its so soft and spreadable, like whipped butter. And the shimmer is incredible!!

I started off by cutting a panel of pale blue/grey CS and adhering to the card front for the background. I then cut a panel of white CS and held the 'Starlequin' stencil over top with some washi tape. I then spread the Nuvo Glacier Paste 'Frostbite' over it using a small spatula, trying to get it all even and not too thick. Once I was happy I slowly removed the stencil and immediately cleaned under running water and dried with paper towels. I put the heat gun on it for a few minutes to help with the drying process and then left for a couple of hours.

Once the paste was dry I die-cut the middle out of it using the largest circle from the 'Ornament Tag Fri-Dies'. I also cut a smaller circle from white CS. The stenciled panel was cut down a smidge and popped up on white foam. I silver heat embossed the sentiment from the 'Snowy Sayings' stamp set and put this on foam tape. I finished off with some 'Arctic Breeze' pearls from Studio Katia.

I hope this has given you some new ideas for your Christmas cards. Maybe to try a new colour scheme or use some different stencils on your designs. If your looking at possibly purchasing any of the products I used today don't forget to use my special code to save yourself 15% on your purchase.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you back here soon with more Christmas cards for my stash!!

Take care
