Botanical Prints Using a Die Cutting Machine

Hi Everyone, I'm playing along with CAS Mix up with one of my favourite techniques - Pressed leaves through a die cutting machine following this technique- Press Leaves with Big Shot with France Martin (6:11)
Sandwich the leaves or flowers between watercolour or mixed media paper and run it through your die cutting machine. FYI you may find a lot of liquid comes out of the leaves, this is why you need paper that will absorb the water.
I rummaged through my garden looking for a mix of fall colours to play with, different greens and reds. The colours transferred from the leaf is a lot lighter than the leaf used.
I'm linking my first card up with CAS Mix up and added a little bee from Lavinia and a sentiment from Magenta.

CAS Christmas October is Red and Gray

Hi Everyone it's time for October CAS Christmas Card Challenge, and this month Marcia is asking us to use some Red and Gray on our cards.
Darnell is our Guest Designer for this month, so please stop by and take a look at her wonderful card.


I Played with one of the Simon Hurley stamping foams and my Sizzix 3D Poinsettia Embossing folder to create the image. Jennifer McGuire has created a video on how to use the foam with Stamps, Stencils and Embossing folders. It was fun to use them as stamps in a slightly different way.
I used the negative side of the embossing folder and pushed the heated foam in to create raised stamp and then inked it with distress inks.


I love the delicate outline it gave me and will be using it on a few of my other Embossing folders.

Stamps: Sentiment (Can't remember)
Paper: 110lb white, Gray

CAS Christmas Card Challenge - September is time for a little Plaid

Hi Everyone, it's time for CAS Christmas Card Challenge, Colleen our host has asked us to pull out some Plaid for our cards.
Our Guest Designer is Melanie (Cards by Melanie)


I didn't have any Plaid Designer Paper or stamps so I googled plaid and it came up with some swatches that could be printed off. I stamped this cute Katzelkraft image on the base card and then stuck the Plaid printed paper to card stock using 6" Sookwang tape to make it a little stiffer and stamped the bag of toys. After colouring Santa and the presents with pencils I fussy cut the bag and paper pieced it on the card.
I think Sant looks quite cute with his Plaid bag bursting with presents๐Ÿ˜


I used the Carabelle postage stamp corner to frame him and Joyfull Christmas from a Stampers Anonymous set.


I'm entering this for the following Challenges
Christmas with the Cuties - Christmas anything goes optional O Christmas Tree
Merry Little Christmas - Anything goes
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge
Craft Challenge -#610 Christmas

Stamps: Katzelkraft, Sentiment - Stampers Anonymous, Carabelle Studio Postage Stamp Frame
Paper: 130lb White, copy Paper
Ink: Versafine Clair (Nocturn)
