February CAS Mix Up 2020

Welcome back, this month I’m the host and we’re attacking Stencilling from Die-cuts. Lots of inspiration from our Special Guest, Ina, and the design team; plus some videos can be found on the CAS Mix Up blog.

For this card I used the Memory Box Small Circle Burst and applied gold molding paste on my white textured card base. While I was letting that dry, I die cut a a heart out of very thick card stock and a piece of Yupo paper (prepped with red and gold Alcohol Inks). These two were adhered together and the sides were gold heat embossed. I punched a hole for the gold eyelet and added a gold string of beads. The heart was covered with some crackle paste. Finally, I stamped and gold heat embossed a SSS Lots of Dots circle on a piece of vellum, and die cut the circle.

Hope you’ll join us in our CAS Mix Up gallery, thanks so much for stopping by,

  2. Oh my gosh … this is GORGEOUS! LOVE how you’ve used the stencil to create the gold embossing paste dotty circles. I have seen this die-cut lots around blogland, but never used as a stencil — it’s awesome! Your heart is gorgeous with the deep colours and the crackle finish. The string of beads is icing on the cake, my friend. Incredible CAS design with mixed media galore! Thanks for this great challenge, Joanna. This has really opened my eyes on how to stretch the use of my dies. I’m now looking at them in a whole new way! xx

  7. What an astonishing mix of super techniques Joanna and I love the gold paste on the circle burst cut stencil, and then the central heart is such a beautiful colour using the yupo on top of some thick card, and then the black crazing from the crackles, and finally the eyelet with the beads on gold thread hanging down finishes it perfectly. x

  8. Your CAS creations are always so unique and wonderfully Mixed media at the same time Joanna.
    Your attention to detail is staggering and what a great use of the die cut as a stencil.
    The heart is fabulous and especially as you backed it with the round piece of vellum and heat embossed the edge x.
