CAS Mix Up September Challenge

Hi everyone.  Welcome to September's Challenge at CAS Mix Up!  We are having so much fun at over here! We really enjoy your creations.  Last month we had awesome entries for the August Spray challenge! Click HERE to see our August Challenge Pinterest Board ... lots of amazing inspiration!

Speaking of amazing entries ... click HERE to check out our "Pick of the Month" and to see some of the Outstanding Designs we've highlighted from August's challenge.

On to September's challenge ...

This month we want you to use Marbling on your cards.  First, make sure your card is CAS ("Clean And Simple"). Include some stamping (a little or a lot), some kind of Marbling technique, and then pick something from the "Your Choice" list in the right sidebar to add in.

Marbled paper is fascinating! Marbling is swirling color in stone-like patterns by floating color on a liquid, swirling it, then laying paper on top to absorb the color.

And we are excited to have Kimberly Wiener (Wienerhonemooners) as our Guest Designer this month. Kimberly is an awesome designer and made a stunning card which was our "Pick of the Month" for July. Click HERE to see her card from the Marker challenge.

Now here are our cards using Marbling.  We hope they will inspire you.
