Two Quick CAS cards

Joining in some of the CAS challenges
this one is for CAS Waterolour Challenge cool colours.
My background is photographic paper with distress oxide ink spritzed on a craft mat and picked up. The die is a Memory box deer frame die and the sentiment is from Magenta.


My second card is for CAS Christmas, for this I used Versamark on a stencil and sookwang tape. The Versamark stops the stencil sticking to the sookwan, my first attempt was a bit of a disaster the stencil stuck and on removing it I tore the paper luckily not my stencil. I switched to using a Versamark dauber for this one.
When my stencil was in place I added red glitter and burnished it in place. I removed the stencil and added clear glitter. Because the red was put down first in the open areas of the stencil the clear picked up some of the red in the background. I then die cut the tag and added I added a strip of red foil paper to cover a scoring oopsy ­čśĆ . The stencil and sentiment are from Magenta.

Brayered background

I've been meaning to try this technique by Leandra Franich for a while and now I think I'm hooked.

Using a light touch with the brayer covered in acrylic paint rotate the card to cover from each direction you add swatches of colour. You just keep layering colour on top of colour. If you have too many dark areas you can always use white or a lighter colour to tone it down.
I stamped my poppies with Versafine Clair Nocturne, coloured them with Posca Acrylic pens and then re stamped the image. The other images were stamped using Ranger archival inks.


This is what my background looked like before I cut some for my card. I also added some scribbles of oil pastels, you cans see the subtle outline under the acrylic paint.

CAS Christmas Card Challenge it's a New year

Hi everyone, it's January and the first CAS Christmas Challenge for this year and time to get going on those Christmas cards. I don't know if you had the same problem as me in December, I was in make and mail mode for the last two weeks. I'm not going to let that happen this December!!

Come join our Guest Designer Jane (Onions and Paper) and the Design team in the Challenge, I'm this months host and I'd like you to make a card with a tag on it. Remember it's a card challenge not a tag challenge­čśĆ


I used Altenew Washi tape for my background, I love that beautiful Nebula design there are so many colours. I stuck the tape to the card stock and die cut the tag.




The washi tape swatch on card was large enough to cut a second tag so I heat embossed the tree and sentiment. This was a great way to make QCAS cards for Christmas.


I'm entering this into the following Challenges

Christmas Kickstart #27 -Penguin Parade
Sparkles Christmas Challenge #108 for a Child
ABC Christmas Challenge B is for Bingo  (bottom row- die cut, CAS, Embossing)
