Paper craft project no. 257: Thank you CAS mixed media card

2014-09-08 CAS Autumn thank you

Happy Monday! Have you checked out The Mixed Media Card Challenge? We’ve got a fun theme for September: Autumn Colors with Metal or Leaves as optional elements. Add A Little Dazzle is sponsoring us this month and they’ve got great craft metal sheets!

I exercised a little restraint this time and went for a CAS mixed media card. (I had to channel my inner Deepti and Loll for this one or else, I would have gone crazy with the modeling paste and inks.) I applied modeling paste through a Hero Arts stencil. Once that was dry, I sponged mustard seed, spiced marmalade, and barn door Distress inks, and partially stamped text in black for added texture (Vignette: Live Love Laugh). I diecut some leaves from Add A Little Dazzle craft metal sheet and I colored them with Adirondack alcohol inks (watermelon, sunshine yellow, and sunset orange) before adhering to my card base. Last, I stamped the sentiment (Sentiment Builders: Thank You) in VersaMagic red brick chalk ink.

Linking up my card to these fun challenges: Just Us Girls #257 – LeavesThe Paper Players #212 – Happy Fall Y’all, and Ooh La La Creations Challenge #164 – Clean and Simple.


Thanks for stopping by!
