CAS Mix Up Reminder Card

Don't forget to join in the fun at CAS Mix Up!  The August challenge is "sprays" and you have until August 24th to link up your card.

Here's my card to inspire you.  My choices are heat embossing (the birds and sentiment) and dry embossing.

I randomly sprayed some blue and pink sprays (to give the idea of the sky and the pink of the blossoms on the branch) on cs and trimmed out a section I liked.  I stamped and heat embossed the birds in black.  I found an embossing folder that co-ordinated well with the branches the birds are sitting on.  The embossed panel is popped up on fun foam for dimension.

The sentiment is heat embossed in Silver Pearl ep on black and trimmed into a banner.

Come on over and join us at CAS Mix Up.  Check the list of "your choice" options if you need ideas for what to add to your stamping and sprays.  And please remember to keep your cards clean and simple.

Stamps - Penny Black birds, SU sentiment
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black, ColorBox silver
Paper - white and black cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Craft Concepts embossing folder, clear embossing powder, Wow Silver Pearl embossing powder, blue and pink sprays


  1. So pretty! Love the blue and pink sprayed background. The black embossed birds on a branch really pop off the soft colours. Great texture from the dry embossed panel. xx

  2. A beautiful background for these birds, Susan! I love this stamp! It makes me think of chatting with a friend! The black embossing really makes them stand out!

  3. Love the colors of spray you used on your background Susan - the black really pops off it!

  4. That sky is truly a NORTHERN SKY which I couldn't get enough of while I lived up in northern Canada! This is a fabulous card, great design :)


Thanks for leaving me a message! I love hearing from you.
