I have a triple post today reminding that there's still time to play
at CAS Mix Up, CAS Watercolour and CAS Christmas.
You might want to grab a cup of coffee. This is a long post!
CAS Mix Up
Using Partial Die Cutting, Inking with Markers, Stamping, Embossing with Die
and Heat Embossing
I've inked this stamp with markers and stamped, then used a damp waterbrush
to blend the colors. I've used the die to die cut just the top of the butterfly,
then used the die to emboss the bottom. Then I went over the butterfly with
Wink of Stella so it shimmers in the light.
The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed with Silver.
This month's challenge is
I've done stripes of blue and pink for my cool colors.
When dry, I sprayed with some shimmer spray.
It has a nice shimmer to it. Brrr!
The snowflake was die cut from a snippet of Neenah smacked with a
Wow embossing pad and heat embossed twice with a
sparkly teal embossing powder.
This was super quick. I trimmed the front of a repurposed Christmas card from last year
and used a tag topper punch for the top and corner rounder punch for the bottom.
I've popped it on top of a piece of embossed Neenah and added a
sparkly die cut merry. A little gold twine finished it off.
I hope you'll join us at
The challenges close on the 24th.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
