Wishing you Joy

Today I have two cards for the CAS Christmas February challenge - JOY!!     I did like Bonnie's acronym.... Quick and Clean and Simple  (QACAS), and that prompted me to look at my stamps stash to see if there were any just sentiments I could use on a card... and I found this gorgeous stamp.  How quick, easy and CAS is that - stamp, gold emboss and whella you have card... a one layer white card.  Of course then I remember another card where I'd sponged the edges with darker ink.... so I created this blue card.... stamped and gold embossed the sentiment and then sponged the edges of the panel with Distress Ink - Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot - it really makes the centre of the card glow.  A thin gold metallic layer and attached to a blue card... I've started trying out other colours :-)
Thanks for stopping by my blog  ---   have a Happy Day.

  1. Both of these are absolutely GORGEOUS Robyn! They are totally CAS and how wonderful that they were quick too...gotta love that!! :0)

  2. Oh Robyn, I love both your cards. What a wonderful stamp and the blue one is my favorite. tfs

  3. I love the clean elegance of the gold on white, Robyn! And the gold on the blue is stunning! I love how the center is lighter and blends out to the darker edges! Thanks so much for sharing your JOY with us at CAS Christmas!

  4. This is the perfect QCAS, Robyn! Love the gorgeous font of your large sentiment. White and gold are so elegant together. The blue and gold is a stunner, especially with the darked edges. Great work! xx

  5. LOVE! Both of these cards Robyn
