November CAS Mix Up

Capture d_écran 2018-09-05 à 14.47.25

Welcome back CAS fans to another CAS Mix Up November Challenge, the theme is  “EMBOSSING FOLDER” hosted by our talented Bonnie.

Using the Penny Black’s Framed Fern, I cut out of an AI left-over scrap from this post.  I adhered the fern onto an embossed textured card stock with the Sizzix 3D cobblestone folder and fussy cut the contour.  The aperture was cut through the card base and textured card stock, using my paper cutter.  The vellum was stamped with the IO crackle stamp, white heat embossed and sandwiched between the 2 layers.  The MFT stitched rectangle frame, cut 3 times, was adhered together to give dimension.

We hope to see you play along with us this month!  Check out the details at the CAS Mix Up blog and visit with the designers to see their incredible creations.  Can’t wait to see what fun you’ll have once you post your savoury creations in our gallery.IMG_3121

This second bonus card is the negative of the first.  I die cut foliage branches in vellum, which I dry embossed with the Swiss Dots folder, and some of the left AI card stock.  Hello was stamped in black Versafine ink.

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,

  1. 2 gorgeous cards, the embossing on the vellum looks fantastic and I do love the die, has been on my wishlist for ages and have recently ordered it! Such a great idea to use both the negative and positive to give such different looks, Cathy x

  2. Both cards are gorgeous, Joanna! I love the beautiful AI framed leaf against the interesting cobblestone embossed background! The color palette is so sophisticated and you did a fantastic job framing! The second card is very elegant. Adding dry-embossing to the vellum leaves is so clever and adds so much interest. Two wonderful CAS cards!

  3. I LOVE the framed leaf of alcohol ink paired with the wonderful texture of the embossing! The stamped and crackled vellum frame is brilliant and adds even more interest! The second card is just as fabulous with the embossed leaves and the negative die cut! Two perfect CAS designs, my friend!

  6. That cobblestone embossing is so dimensional Joanna! I want to reach out and touch it! Your AI colored fern looks lovely layered over it – and your bonus card is just beautiful with all the vellum die cut stems and colored card stock stems behind the framing! xx

  8. Oh my gosh … two beautiful cards with one die-cut framed leaf … I LOVE IT! Each design is so totally different. Love the texture of your first card with the embossing between the layers of the leaf and dry embossed background. And the crackle framing is gorgeous.

    The second card is so artsyh with the leaves flowing out from the frame. The swiss dot embossing on vellum is perfect as the dots really stand out a lot! Fantastic designs my sweet friend! xx
