Hi everyone. Today is the start of the CAS Mix Up June Challenge - Die-cuts. I'm so excited about this challenge ... I LOVE using die-cuts. :)
I started this card by randomly adding some embossing paste through a mesh stencil. The window was die-cut from white card stock and also from fun foam, then glued together for added dimension.
The leaves are die-cut in patterned paper, and the flowers from solid coloured card stock. I used a small sponge dauber to sponge around the outside of all the flower petals, then used a stylus and mat to add shaping. Check out my video on adding dimension to leaves (used same technique for adding dimension to the flowers).
I used a NBUS Pearl pen to add the flower centers. The window, flower and leaf die-cuts were assembled together and attached over the embossing paste background. A stamped sentiment finishes the card.
Here's a close up so you can see the shading and shaping ...
My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, die-cuts with sponging and shaping, and stenciling with embossing paste ... and it's still a CAS card. :)
We are so excited to have Hazel Kinvig-Paul (My Card Attic) as our Featured Designer this month. Welcome Hazel!

I used snippets for all the die-cuts on this card (window, flowers, leaves) so I'm heading over for a visit to the Snippets Playground.
