    One definition of Ombre is.......

    Shaded or graduated in tone....

    So many of you embraced baby wipe techniques and we've so enjoyed all 
    your beautiful creations!  Thanks so much for playing along.


    Our Top Pick for May

    Michelle's butterflies were a big hit with our team! The varied color from her
    baby wipe ink pad along with the silver enbossing give a happy feel to her card

      CAS Mix Up May Challenge

      Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Bonnie!

      Check out the Top Picks from April's Black Magic challenge HERE.


      Baby wipes aren't just for babies!  I use them for cleaning stamps and fingers.  One day I discovered a lot of ink on a baby wipe and and dabbed it on a snippet of mixed media paper.  It made a nice background.  I've used a baby wipe to make an ink pad with multiple colors of ink.  And not too long ago, I saw a video where a baby wipe was used to wipe off the chalky film from Distress Oxide ink used on photo paper.  So with many options, I challenge you to use a baby wipe or wipes on  your mixed media card.  Be sure to use stamping and at least one other mixed media technique or product with it and please keep your card CAS (Clean and Simple).  Can't wait to see your creations!

      CAS Mix Up April Monthly Picks

      This was a new technique to most of us and we loved to see how everyone embraced it!  It's fun to try new techniques and see what we can learn along the way.
      Thanks, Susan, for a fantastic challenge and to all of you for participating.


      Our Top Pick for April
      Bobby

      We loved Bobby's CAS design with the elegant oval frame, the texture on the leaves from the layers of stamping and embossing which defined them, and her gold embossed sentiment.
