happy birthday tag

Capture d_écran 2018-06-06 à 15.48.31It’s a great die-cut challenge at CAS Mix Up!  There’s still time to play, just colour a die cut, add stamping plus another option from the side bar on the CAS Mix Up blog.  There’s videos and DT cards to inspire you, hop on over to take a peak.

The approach to my two cards are similar.  Molding paste through the negative left by the die cut, add embossing paste and heat dry before the paste dries.  The flower on the first card is coloured with Gansai Tambie Starry Colors in shades of gold and the second with Copics (BG01-23-72).  A vellum tag was stamped with “happy birthday” and attached with sequins, beads and a matching feather.  A Technique Tuesday “Charming Hearts” tag was also added.  Hope you’ll join us, thanks for stopping by, HUGz,

  2. These cards make me want to touch them, Joanna! Beautiful molded die cuts and I love the vellum tags along with the feathers and beads! Two beautiful mixed media birthday cards!


  3. Your designs are always so amazing Joanna, and these are no exception. I love the collage of elements that work so perfect together to create these gorgeous cards. I am thrilled to be the recipient of the white and gold card recently and can tell you that it draws you in immediately and you have to touch that feather!! Gorgeous … and thank you, my friend, for this beautiful birthday card. xx
