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
... 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!!!


Welcome to the newest Designers for the CAS Mix Up Challenge!




We're so happy you're here!!


On to this month's challenge ...
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.
