February CAS Mix Up Reminder

2019-2Half way through the month and there is still time to play at CAS Mix UP.  The linky closes at midnight (PDST) on Friday the 24th of February.  Hideko is our hostess with a great dimensional challenge.  Stop by the blog to see what our special guest Arlene has come up with.  As always, there are videos and design team cards to spark some inspiration.

Out came the Penny Black butterfly, which I never get tired of 😉 , and I die cut several layers of light blue tissue paper, glued together and wrinkled up …for dimension. img_3598The top iridescent cellophane flakes acetate layer is a piece left over from our acetate challenge from last March!  I also cut out the flutters body and heat embossed this with Sapphire EP!  Before adhering him to the card base, I stencilled a checker board with white iridescent acrylic paint.  “Pour toi” (for you) was also heat embossed with the Sapphire EP.

Can’t wait to see your scrumptious creations in our CAS Mix Up Gallery, hoping you’ll join us! Hugs,

  1. Wow, your butterfly is gorgeous, Joanna! I love that you layered the die-cut tissue paper, which is a perfect texture for fluffy wings. And the top iridescent cellophane flakes acetate layer is stunning! The light blue under the acetate shows through and the iridescent flakes bounce off beautiful lights. The stenciled checker board and the Sapphire heat-embossed body are as beautiful! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!
