February CAS Mix Reminder 2020

There’s still time to play along with our Stencil from Die Cutting Challenge! Remember there’s lots of inspiration from our Special Guest, Ina, and the design team; plus videos can be found on the CAS Mix Up blog.

For this card I used the IO Heart Stems die. I placed this die cut stencil onto my grey mixed media paper card base with a piece of masking tape in the center. I applied a very thin coat of white modelling paste, removed the stencil, added Silver Pearl Embossing powder and immediately heat embossed. I stamped the Lawn Fawn sentiment “congratulations” in the center with Versamark and the same EP. I also added some splatters of gold Heidi Swatt Spray. Then I adhered an IO bow out of gold card stock along with a heart rhinestone.

Do join us in our CAS Mix Up Gallery, thanks so much for stopping by,

  1. This is so pretty and I love your clever design, Jo! I’d love to use your “splitting an image using masking tape for a sentiment” idea for my stencils too. 🙂 The silver pearl heat-embossing over the modeling paste looks lovely against the beautiful shade of gray. The gold splatters and the die-cut bow add a festive feeling to the card and are perfect for the occasion. Thank you so much for hosting this fun challenge this month!

  2. So pretty with your sweet hearts. The pearl embossing powder adds an extra layer of elegance. Love the gold bow and splatters. Beautiful card, Joanna!


  3. Your little heart stems are so dainty and pretty, Jo! Love the dimension of them and the split that holds the sentiment! The splatters add extra interest and that gold bow finishes it off so beautifully! Love you too, my friend.

  4. The way you use your dies and stencils is just amazing! You have so many brilliant ideas. I would hate to miss one of your posts. This is so beautifully executed and love the neutral background for it.
