November CAS Mix Up Reminder 2020

A reminder card for Bonnie’s “Off the Edge” watercolour CAS Mix Up Challenge. Hope you’ll join us in our gallery.

With Christmas around the corner I thought I’d make two identical cards but on different card stock. Both were stamped, masked & heat embossed (gold & clear) at the same time using a Heartfelt Creations Petite Poinsettia. The center was die cut with a Nellie Snellen rectangle die and this section was painted with Gansai Tambi Starry colours. The edges of these die cuts were also gold heat embossed. Some gold splatters, dots of gold glitter and a noël word die cut in glitter paper were added to embellish.

For the third card I used MFT’s Stylish Snowflakes to die cut 7 flakes out of watercolour paper. Each was watercolored again with Gansai Tambi Starry Colours. They were threaded with gold thread and hung off the edge of a navy blue card panel. Four Memory Box Crisp Bow die cuts were stacked up and a few coats of red glitter EP was added. Finally some gold splatters were made for interest.

There’s still to play, thanks for stopping by 😉

HAPPY HOLIDAYs to all, hoping the New Year brings Hope and lots of Health …that is the greatest gift of all. Warm virtual HUGz!

  2. Your cards are so beautiful and filled with glittery gold in your 1st two beauties. Love how you just changed up the background papers.

We will sure miss you, but look forward to you playing with us at our CAS Challenge, Joanna. Stay Safe and Creative. Love and Hugs…Nancy


  3. Three GORGEOUS poinsettia cards Joanna! I love the off the edge on the first design with the outline continuing onto the background. Very creative and beautiful. The shimmer from the gold paint is so pretty and the whole design looks amazing on both the red and white card fronts. Your third card is so uniquely beautiful. I love how you hung the chain of snowflakes “off-the-edge”. It’s been so fun to see different versions of off-the-edge. Thank you again for all your aristry during the past four years at CAS Mix Up. You will be deeply missed, my friend! All the best to you in the future. Looking forward to your seeing your amazing future cards on your blog. Take care, stay safe. Love, Loll

  4. Bothe red and white poinsettia cards are stunning, and they have completely different feelings, Joanna! Love the beautiful design and all the details including the gold heat-embossed delicate edges of the panels. The snowflake card is so lovely! Threading the die-cut snowflakes and hanging them “off the edge” is such a creative idea!

  5. Your poinsettia cards look so different just by using different colors Joanna – what a creative design stamping on the two panels, and your string of overlapping snowflakes is just beautiful!


  6. These are just gorgeous! Although all are beautiful your neutral one just struck me since I’m such a fan of neutral colors. Your creativity is amazing!


  7. Wow! Three beautiful cards, Jo! I love the poinsettia cards! The red is so festive and the neutral so classy! The row of snowflakes is so pretty and I love how the splatters give such depth on the dark blue card! You are going to be so missed, my dear friend!


  8. What gorgeous cards! Especially the two poinsettia ones! Love the way you partially coloured the poinsettias by die cutting the centre section. The gold embossing around the edges of the die cut gives perfect definition to it.
