December - CAS

Good morning and welcome to our December challenge and this month we would like to see.............

********Clean and Simple********

Your creations can be for any occasion so long as they uncluttered CAS designs.

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 


Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.

Three more lovely prizes from them..............

                 
           


Tattered Lace is home to a range of beautifully delicate and detailed craft products, including the successful Tattered Lace Dies and Embossing Folders, designed by Stephanie Weightman.


Fantastic Ribbons have over a decade of experience in ribbon and are passionate about their products. You may have already met the team as they exhibit at all the major craft and hobby exhibitions where they have built up a huge loyal fan base for their beautiful ribbons. A bundle of assorted ribbons and gems.


Lots of CAS inspiration from the Design Team, thank you girls.................
