52 CHRISTMAS CARD THROWDOWN TECHNIQUE JUNE ‘22

   It's the last 52 CCT challenge for June and our host Branka wants us to include ry Embossing on our cards.


I've made another shaker with Acetate bag and using an old stamp/die set from Hero Arts. 
The embossing folder is actually called Random Daisies, but I thought they looked like snowflakes:)
I used my fave colour of Distress Oxide -Salvaged Patina. 


I hope you'll visit the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what our talented Guest Designer Celeste and the rest of the team created with this technique and then be inspired to join in the challenge!

 Hi there. Here's a card inspired by the current Jingle Belle's challenge...


I'm having a mental blank tonight and can't remember the name of these stamps! The Santa belongs to a friend, the snow background is from Hello Bluebird and  I think the trees may be from Stampers Anonymous.

CAS MIX UP JUNE '22 REMINDER

  Hello there! I'm just popping in to remind you about this month's  CAS Mix Up Challenge!  It's a stencil challenge hosted by Loll and the prompt is 'PASTES/GELS'.


I used the same paste as my last card - Sizzix Pearlescent Medium. There was still a bit of colour on the stencil so it's created a very subtle rainbow effect. 


The flower and foliage are die-cut and coloured with Karin Markers.
I'm sorry I've forgotten the name of stencil again! 
The sentiment is from Newton's Nook. 


You can find more inspiration over on the CAS Mix Up Blog from our Designer Team.  We hope you'll be inspired to join the challenge.

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges:-

I used 2 of my favourite techniques - watercolour & stencilling

Add a Sentiment
