May CAS Mix Up 2020

Linda is hosting our CAS Mix Up Challenge this month, using some Gesso Resist. As usual there is plenty of inspiration from videos, the design team and our special guest Pooja.

For this card I die cut 3 Ginkgo IO leaves. I added some gesso with a brayer over the embossed leaves and then with a brush on the edges. I sprinkled some Ost. Blue Brusho and spritzed with Perfect Pearls. That’s when the magic happened. The blue nuances definitely seduced me. I must admit that I will definitely be using this method again on many of my flower and leaf die collections. A Spellbinders Respendent Rectangle panel was die cut and a Unity Wood Grain stamp, by Christy Tomlinson, was white pearl heat embossed. As for the Ginkgo leaves I had to add some gold embossing powder to the stems and the edges.

Do join us this month. Thank you so much for your encouraging comments,

CAS(E) this Sketch #370

Well this sketch from Chrissie Larson got me thinking. The CAS(E) this Sketch #370 is so different. How to keep it CAS, well I grabbed some Neenah 110lb white card stock, die cut it with a MFT stitched border rectangle. Then I cut the bottom right with a Penny Black border edgers die and again the top right with the same border die. The PB Iris die cut was ink blended with a Qtip & DOXs, heat embossed with glitz EP and some Pesto EP.

Keep SAFE! Warm HUGz, Joanna
