Ghosting Reminder for CAS Mix Up

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at

Using Stamping, Ghosting, Stenciling, and Die Cuts

We're using the Ghosting Technique this month.

It seems that the CAS Mix Up Design team is thinking about Christmas.

I hope you'll go check out their inspiration pieces.

I used a piece of a Ghosted Brusho background to die cut my tree.  I tore some snowbanks, and
stenciled some snow to add to the scene.

There are some great videos on this technique.

What a wonderful card - love your tree with all the ghosted texture.

Sweet!! Love your ghosted tree and your sweet snow scene. I do love Christmas cards. :) This is awesome! xx

Love the way the ghosting mimics the triangular shade of a fir tree! And I love the way the reindeer is peeping out from behind the tree - I'm going to CASE that idea!

Doris said...

This one is definitely a hit! You've inspired me to give ghosting a try.

Your tree is gorgeous! The ghosting gave it such a variation of color. Your scene is well done, Bonnie! This is a terrific Christmas card.

Susanne Vargas said...

What a lovely little scene this is Bonnie. I really like the ghosting on your tree diecut. It adds so much texture and depth to the one diecut. A super effect. Barbxx
