CAS Christmas With Mini Stamps

Happy Friday! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving if you celebrated yesterday. Did you do any shopping this Black Friday? I usually stay out of the stores at least until Saturday. I hate shopping on a normal day, so there is no way I'd be going to a store during their busiest days. I did place a couple of online orders (non craft items) on Wednesday and I am still trying to find the best deals on some Distress Oxide inks, but haven't seen any better prices than I did a month or so ago.

Today I am sharing a few clean and simple Christmas cards done with the newest My Monthly Hero Kit by Hero Arts.


Unfortunaly this kit has sold out quickly after release and is no longer available for purchase. I am a kit subscriber, so my kit was already reserved for me and shipped automatically. If you are interrested in signing up for auto shipments, simply click here. Your subscription would start with the December kit. And you can cancel at any time if you email them or call them before the 28th of the previous month. Kits are only $34.99 and this does include priority shipping within the U.S. (Shipping cost does apply to orders outside of the US. )

For today's cards I only used the clear stamps, the advent calendar die I used on my last card HERE, along with the mini stamps behind each opening.

All cards were done in a similar matter. I used my scoring tool to add score lines on the top part of each card. Next I stamped a row of images from the Hero Arts kit and selected a fitting sentiment also from the kit, which I stamped with black ink. Some gold cord finishes off each card front, then I adhered to a colored card base. 



As mentioned, this kit is no longer available, but do check out Hero Arts' Black Friday sale. 

The Hero Arts 50-25-25 Sale ends Tuesday, November 27 at 4am PST. While supplies last. No promo code needed. Simply click the logo below ... BTW - free shipping on all domestic (US) orders of $25 or more! 





Happy stamping everyone, I hope I inspired you to use some of your mini stamps for some quick and simple Christmas cards! I have another not so CAS card ready to share tomorrow, hope to see you then!

  2. Very nice card, Unfortunately your card can't participate, because we want to see a picture of christmascookies. Will you remove your card?
    We look forward to seeing you at the next challenge.
