CAS Mix Up June '22

 Yes, CAS MIX UP is back after a few month's break and we hope to inspire you with this month's challenge. 

This month is a Stencil themed challenge. Loll is hosting and the prompt is 'Pastes/Gels'. So it's time to get a little a bit messy!

There are some links to video tutorials on the CAS MIX UP blog and an explanation from Loll as to what she would like to see.

 Please remember to keep your card designs Clean and Simple and include stencilling with Pastes or Gels.

It's been so long since I've used my Embossing Paste, that it's dried up, so I dropped in at one of the few remaining Papercraft shop's near me and found some 'yummy' Pearlescent Medium from Sizzix. 
I love it! 
I used it for the background and then used my new products from Altenew to create the flower. It's made with layering stencils and the die cuts the image with no border. 
Stencils: Background could be TCW, but not sure
Altenew Hill Blossom (with co-ordinating die)

We are so lucky to have 2 hugely talented Guest Designers this month... Julie from Crafted with Jules and Darnel from Djkardkreations
You can see their cards and more from our fabulous DT at the CAS Mix Up blog.

I hope you will be inspired and join in the challenge!

                          Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. That paste looks fabulous on the black card, it is the perfect backdrop for those flowers. Beautiful. I was very surprised when I found my pastes still usable as it was so long since I last had them out xx
