Guest Designing for CAS Mix Up

Hi Everyone,

I am totally delighted to have been asked to be guest designer at the CAS Mix-Up challenge

Of course I said YES! It is such a cool challenge. The DT supplies ample information about the topic and ones can learn so much! This month topic is quite enticing - it 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!

The folder I used here is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I sprinkled Bushos on it and spritzed with water. I then did some embossing folder stamping. I dicut a square window into my card base using a QuicKutz square die. Added the pig (unknown company). The wonky birthday stamp is by So Suzy Stamps. I also added googly eyes to the pig, some white gel pen accents and a little dab of Stickles to the center of the flower.

I  just love how this embossing folder background turned out! Go and pull out your embossing folders - so many techniques to try with them!

Here is a compilation of all the Embossing Folder Tutorials:

I hope to see you playing along at the CAS Mix-Up challenge!

You made an amazing background. A great idea and a great excuse to pull out the folders for extruding from the drawer. I love your birthday pig. It's nice that it's not pink :-)

Your Brusho embossing folder stamping background is fantastic! It looks like colorful mosaic! It's fun and bright, and perfect for the occasion. The blue pig with googly eyes is so funny and cute!

How the devil did I miss this has my spirit animal on it. And the blue/green combo is one of my favorites. I must be living under a rock and don't know it.

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
