CAS Mix Up July Stencil Challenge


Welcome to a new challenge hosted by Nancy!

Stencil Challenge

I did not find any video's for Stencil Tracing.
Basically you can outline with the stencil left on your image or free hand 
outline with the stencil removed.

I am sharing a link to Stencil Tracing in my blog,  which has 7 examples.
You can scroll down  and click on any photo for more technique descriptions.

Remember to keep your design Clean and Simple.
Hope you join us for this challenge that really makes your stencil images Pop!

Thank you!

CAS Mix Up June Mixed Media Monthly Picks


Thank you to every one who joined the challenge this month and shared your wonderful embossed vellum cards.  It was very difficult to pick only 4 cards for the Awards as there where so many more that would be worthy recipients.

Our Winner for June's Embossed Vellum Challenge
Brenda

I love Brenda's card for it's pure simplicity and clean uncluttered design which she also embossed with an embossing folder and used a stylus to further enhance the flowers.

Congratulations, Brenda!
Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.

Changes to CAS Mix Up and June's Mixed Media Challenge


Welcome to the new CAS Mix Up Challenge!

A few changes have been made to the challenge.

First, Bonnie is stepping down as administrator for the CAS Challenges.
I want to thank Bonnie for all her hard work with admin for the past four years.
Thank you, dear friend.
Bonnie will be staying on as a Designer for CAS Mix Up - YAY!!

----------------------------------

Starting now, CAS Mix Up will include CAS Watercolour and CAS Stencil challenges.

There will be a rotation of monthly challenges at CAS Mix Up:
Mixed Media
Stencil
Watercolour
... Repeat ...

I am so thankful to have wonderful, supportive friends.
One of my amazing friends, Nancy (scandinancy creates) came up with the idea
of adding these three challenges together and rotating them.
It would have been a struggle for me to run four challenges on my own,
so this was a great solution!
Thank you Nancy!!!

June's challenge is hosted by Susan!

Mixed Media Challenge
Welcome to this month's challenge to do some Embossing on Vellum.  You can achieve this with a stylus on printed or heat embossed images (love the raised effect you can achieve),  using an embossing folder or heat embossing an image.  I look forward to seeing your cards and maybe some new and interesting ideas. Check out the video's for some inspiration and don't forget to keep your card Clean and Simple.
