PWC129 - CAS

Hey Prettie peeps!!
It’s Wednesday and this means it’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge over on the Paper Pretties Blog! This week's PWC129 is one of my faves... Clean And Simple (CAS). It's perfect for the holidays because I know it's really hard to find the time to get crafty. My craft room is a disaster right now. I have bits of cut up cardstock and designer paper all over the floor and my craft table is littered with punches, ribbons, ink pads, scissors, and Copic markers. I was able to use everything I already had out to put this pretty little card together in minutes. Usually, I have to put everything away first and get organized. Not this time!

O Christmas Tree - clear stamp set

I tried something different with my Memento teardrop ink pads. I used Bamboo Leaves first since it is the lightest green that I have. Instead of pouncing the ink on, I swiped it on. Then I used Cottage Ivy and lightly pounced all around the edge of the tree. The effect is pretty awesome... at least I think so. It almost looks like a painting.

Come play along with us!

How to Enter: If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project using the above challenge and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword PWC129.
Don’t forget to include a link to your card on the Paper Pretties Blog, so everyone can see it too. You don’t have to use Paper Pretties stamps to play, but of course if you have them we would love to see you use them. One random participant will receive a Paper Pretties Stamps set … see the Paper Pretties Blog for more details.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!
