And, speaking of the months rolling around so quickly, it's already the first birthday of the CAS Mix Up challenge!
Loll and Bonnie decided to celebrate so they are offering prizes this month!
$25 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp for Challenge Winner
$25 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp for one random draw of all entries
(must follow rules to be eligible for prizes)
Sadly I'm not eligible for a prize since I'm on the Design Team. Instead I'm here to inspire you with my smooshed card:
I went with smooshing with Distress inks on watercolour paper. I used three different colours and ended up with quite a large piece of smooshing. I trimmed it down to my favourite section and then stamped and heat embossed an inchie stamp on a bit of the leftover. I die cut it with a little square die and also die cut a brown branch.
I mounted the smooshed panel on fun foam, glued on the branch (letting it hang over the edges of the panel, bordered the inchie with a bit of white cs to make it stand out more, and placed it on the branch in such a way that the die cut branch lines up with the branch in the inchie image. Since the image is so little, I went with a small sentiment.
So come on out and show us your smooshing. There's more wonderful inspiration from the Design Team and our Guest Designer, Marcia Hill of Marcia's Stampin' Pad. Please remember to make your card CAS (Clean and Simple), and include some stamping and at least one other option from the list on the right on the CAS Mix Up blog.
