CAS on Sunday #41

I won a couple of dies from Die-namites this week and wanted to see if they were going to be as cool as I thought.  Oh yes they are!

Is this Elegant Medallion awesome or what?  I love it!
I am entering this into CAS on Sunday #41; black, white and 1 color [silver].  My congrats is from Inspired By Stamping Big Congrats.

I went on to play with the second die;

While I like this Elegant Holly, the leaves need some texture... I'll be playing more with this one in the future. Any suggestions for adding texture?

Gotta love free stuff! :)

Thanks for stopping by~

WOW that is an elegant card. It is also perfect in my opinion, for the current Addicted to CAS - Luxury inspiration... I have been challenged to play that this week and when I saw this card - it means luxury to me! a Luxe pattern in an intricate die cut is pure luxury!
Way to go!!!

Acckkkk LOL, you are ON that DT for Addicted to CAS, I should have known!!! Have a great one Vicki!

Both are so beautiful and elegant, Vicki! As for adding texture to the holly: coat with gesso, sand a bit, then apply watercolors/paint. You can also try coating with embossing powder, glitter, or crackle paint. Or maybe put the die-cut holly in an embossing folder and run through machine.

Oh boy, you are one lucky lady to win such lovely dies, Vicki!!
The elegant Medallion is just what it's name says - Elegant!! The font of your sentiment looks so beautiful with the medallion and I love that you have done it in silver. Very elegant card!!!
The second card is actually just as elegant!! I love that holly and the lovely red you have stamped the sentiment with!! To me the leaves look fine, but I trust you to come up with some stunning way to add texture!!!
Lovely card!!!

Congrats on winning these dies - and you've showcased them beautifully! I'm the last person to give texture advice (Shery is top-notch!), but if you head over to the Penny Black site, Elizabeth and Jill are using a new die with fabulous texture. Worth a stroll (and, of course, I've added said die to my wish list).
