Hi everyone. Just a quick reminder that there’s one week left to enter your CAS Snowman Christmas card into our May challenge at CAS Christmas.
So I didn’t think I had any snowman dies, but while going through my supplies for another project, I came across this Winter Scene Border die. Since I love rainbow colors any time of the year, I created this soft simple rainbow colour Christmas card.
First, two rectangle stick frames were die cut from a scrap of mix media paper. Watercolor block stamping was used to create the background by scribbling Zig markers in rainbow colours on an acrylic stamping block, spritzing with water then stamping onto one of the rectangles. It was set aside to dry. The other rectangle was die cut with the snowman border die.
Initially, I was going to stack the two white stick frames, but then decided to add some sparkle and die cut a frame from a scrap of silver foil sheets. The sentiment was silver heat embossed on a white stitched rectangle panel. The elements were assembled on the panel before it was mounted onto a white top folding card base. Clear shimmer added to the rainbow background finished off the card.
Hope to see your CAS snowman card in our gallery. For more inspirations from our talented guest Barb and my team, click HERE. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Hi there. Another post tonight and it’s a quick one.
Using ink cubes, distress inks in rainbow colours were applied in strips on an acrylic block, then spritz with water, and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper.
The Lily was stamped twice with Versafine black ink on the panel as well as on a scrap of white shimmer paper. The solid Lily centre image was then inked with Spiced Marmalade distress ink and stamped on the shimmer paper Lily. It was fussy cut out and paper pieced on the watercolour panel before the whole piece was die cut with a rectangle stitched die.
The sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. Clear shimmer was added to the Lily and a few sparkly clear sequins finushed off the card. And that does it. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day.

Hi there. This is the mid-month reminder post for CAS Mix Up August challenge – Alcohol Inks (AI).
And here’s my card.
I still don’t own any of the traditional AIs, so my AI comes from my Copic markers. The background was created using the acrylic block stamping technique. Copic markers in gradient colours were scribbled across an acrylic stamping block, then spritz with alcohol, and stamped onto a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die cut from Neenah solar white cardstock.
The flowers and sentiment were stamped with the MISTI using Memento black ink. A Copic Colorless Blender was then used to “remove” colour from parts of the flower that overlapped the background. Technically, the Colorless Blender pushes away colour and desaturates the area, making it appear like it’s removing colour. The flowers were then coloured with Copics.
A white gel pen was used to outline the sentiment to make it stand out more. With the stamps still in place in the MISTI, the flowers and sentiment were re-stamped with VersaMark and clear heat embossed. Clear shimmer on the flowers and a few clear sequins finished off the card. It was an easy make, so I made another colour version of it.
