A quick card for 2 challenges: TIME OUT Challenge #85 AND CAS(E) this Sketch #226! The two rectangle frame die cuts in birch wood and vellum are from Impression Obsession. Then a “hi” die cut is from Papersmooches. This was adhered to a dry embossed rectangle with a We R Memory Keepers weave folder. The daisy (marguerite) die from Memory Box was cut out twice in glossy paper, the contour left in white and the inlaid petals with alcohol inks. An aqua rhinestone was added for the center of the bloom 😉

There’s still time to play at CAS Mix Up! The theme this month is embossing pastes or gels. Lots of videos can be found on the blog to get you going.
For this card I used both. The blue dragonfly was made with gel mixed in with the same ink used for the flower and the iridescent paste was mixed with the green used for the stem. I had an Inkadinkado meadow flower stamp, which I heat embossed with silver pearl onto the card base. Then using this same flower I stamped the Sizzix Wildflower die cut in blue, using Tombow brushes #476 & #493. The stems were also stamped with Tombow’s green #158. Blue twine was attached just under the largest flower and allowed to curl around the stem. This wildflower was adhered to the card base once the gel and paste was dry.
The Design Team also have great CAS designs to inspire you, do stop by 😀 Warm HUGs
Jen B at Freshly Made Sketches came up with a lovely design #291. I pasted a rectangle of Japanese paper onto some 110 lb white card stock and added a cut white strip from a Penny Black GEOMETRIC BORDER die. Using a Spellbinders MAKE A WISH Etched die I cut off the stem on the white card stock and vellum. Using gold Liquitex acrylic ink! I dotted the round sections of the top die. A white eyelet holds this blossom to the card base.
Hope you enjoy, have a great day. Thanks for stopping by, HUGz Joanna
Insect is the theme at CASology Week #252, so I used CAS Colours & Sketches #226 palette of Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Soft Sky! The hibiscus die cuts (Memory Box) were cut in watercolour paper and some salt was added to the Coral colour to add some texture. Embossing paste was tinted with Soft Sky and was stencilled onto the the white card base. Then the ants (Lawn Fawn) were stamped in Crumb Cake and clear heat embossed… stamping little dots here and there. Finally, two linen canvas leaves were added (Spellbinder). Today’s card is also posted on the June CAS Mix Up Challenge

A big thank you to the CAS Colours & Sketches team for choosing my creation, what a fun challenge… truly appreciated 😀
CAS(E) this Sketch #224 with the Simon Says Masculine Challenge were applied for my card today 😀 Sunday June 18th is the big day for DADs, “Happy Father’s Day” guys! I heat embossed in gold, silver & copper three of the Memory Box DELUXE GEAR SET Craft Die set. The white card base was white heat embossed with a Kaisercraft Texture Stamp – Arty. On a Technique Tuesday Marquee label die cut in black, I white heat embossed “Bonne Fête des Pères” (Happy Fathers Day) and added a red heat embossed heart. Finally, I finished the center of the gears with black eyelets and a brad.

Julee’s last sketch for Mojo Monday 500. A farewell, leading to another horizon, that’s why my card says “COURAGE“! That’s the best part of LIFE, we take steps forward to new worlds and like Albert Einstein said: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” Mojo Monday was my weekly kick start for the past year. Thank you Julee for these great challenges and good luck in your new adventures. This is my take on your last sketch 😉

A new month, a new challenge at CAS Mix Up! It’s time to take out those embossing pastes and gels. Don’t forget to take a look at the videos to get you inspired 😀
A Penny Black’s IRIS flower was die cut in watercolour paper. The iris was painted with Daniel Smith watercolours. The flower was then die cut again in a piece of card stock to create a stencil for the white modelling paste which was applied to the white card base. Once dry, the watercolored flower die cut was pasted just slightly below, adding a heat embossed tag stamped “jolie Pensée” (a pretty thought) tied to the stem with yellow twine. Some green and yellow splatters were added for interest and some of those splatters were covered with Nuvo glitter drops.
Hope you join us with your creative CAS designs. Don’t forget to take a look at what the dynamic Designer Team has come up with. The challenge is open until the 24th of June, can’t wait to see your entries. Thanks for stopping by, HUGs
