CAS Mix Up Reminder

Hi Everyone,

I have been asked to be guest designer at the CAS Mix-Up challenge.
You may have seen my first card HERE.

And now you'll see my reminder card for this fabulous challenge.
The DT supplies ample information about the topic and one can learn so much! 
This month topic is all about embossing folders. If you are like me, you have a huge supply of them - but rarely used.... I am so glad I had an excuse to put at least one of them in action!

For this card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and smeared it with Creative Expressions metallic gliding polish. I die cut the flower using a Penny black die and gold shimmer paper. The little sentiment is an ancient one from Papertrey. I also added a few gold gems.

So glad I found an excuse for my embossing folder. I should use them more frequently. If you feel the same way - just play along!

Here is a compilation of all the Embossing Folder Tutorials:
Embossing Folder Stamping: Splitcoaststampers (10:48)
5 Ways with Embossing Folders: Kim Dellow (4:41)
Double Texture Embossing: DOstamping (11:19)  
Distress Watercolor Dry Embossing: Splitcoaststampers (written tutorial)

I hope to see your card linked up at the CAS Mix-Up challenge!

As I have a huge hoard of folders and a great love of dry embossing, you'd think this would be an easy one to enter. After seeing your fabulous entries, I'm gonna give a try. This one is as good as the first.

I agree, I have a lot of embossing folders and rarely use them. This is just beautiful with the gilding polish. The shimmer paper made a wonderful flower to add. Gorgeous!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
