Hi there, blog friends ~
If you're a frequent visitor to my blog, you know how much I enjoy playing along with Loll and Bonnie's challenges...well, today I'm sharing a few cards I created for the CAS Christmas Challenge and CAS Mix Up Challenge ~
When it comes to flowers, I always look to Altenew and sure enough, their Poinsettia is perfect ~
There are four steps to this bloom, which I stamped with Hero Arts ink cubes. I spritzed sheer shimmer spray on the flowers and leaves and added Prills to the center of the flower. The leaves were a birthday gift from Loll (thank you again!).
Here is a close-up of the Prills...it's too bad the shimmer doesn't photograph well:
My 2nd card is for the CAS Mix Up Challenge - Color our die cuts, stamping and our choice.
I used alcohol inks to color the die cut 'Color Drops' and after I stamped the sentiment, I added clear embossing powder (my choice) for dimension. A very simple card, but I love the effects of the alcohol inks when the colors blend...so pretty!
So, that's it for me...I hope everyone is having a great week ~
