July CAS Mix Up Reminder 2019

Capture d’écran 2019-06-19 à 08.31.00Half way through the challenge, there’s some time to play with Bonnie’s CAS Mix Up Challenge theme of  Alcohol Ink Lift.  Our Special Guest Michelle and the design team have come up with some pretty cool cards to get you started.

For these cards I usedIMG_4238 a Hero Arts Konnichiwa Floral Blossom stamp to “lift” alcohol ink off Yupo Paper and then placed the ink onto the cardstock.  I heat embossed both the Yupo and cardstock before assembling these cards.  My first was the blue where I rubbed instead of dabbed the Alcohol ink, UGH, so I rescued the piece by white embossing the Yupo.  The second, I forgot to completely clean my stamp so I had left over blue ink (on the left side) which I stamped onto the IMG_4237white window card.  Finally the third was the one I was truly happy with.  This technique creates interesting impressions full of colour, once you keep in mind all the steps.  The Peek a Boo window die cut is from MFT.

The challenge is really worth giving it a try.  Can’t wait to see your CAS cards in our gallery.  Thank you so much for stopping by, HUGs,

Linda‘s #396 sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches truly appealed to me. I grabbed a card base, die cut the centre with a rectangle stax die. I striped stamped the parameter and silver pearl heat embossed. I dry embossed the middle and also silver pearl heat embossed. After paper piecing it all together I added an IO LOVE word die out of Origami paper, added a rhinestone star and the card was done.

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna
