CAS Mix Up December 2017

Hello friends.  Playing along with this month's CAS Mix Up challenge where we can add 2 items of our choice plus stamping.


I chose die cutting and embossing to go with my stamping and came up with this:


Isn't the die cut circle with the stars so cool looking?!  A sweet friend gifted it to me and I loved finally being able to use it...thank you!!  I cut it from a shimmery gold cardstock.  The trees (Aliexpress) were die cut in white and then I blended them with Mossy Meadow ink (SU!) and then used some Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel on them.  Here's a closer up:


I love the bits of gold and glitter that are in that embossing enamel too...really gives your image dimension and sparkle too!  My sentiment was stamped and embossed in gold using PTI's Beautiful Berries: Winter stamp set.

Lots of time to play along with this challenge yet (it's open till the 24th of this month), so check out what the DT came up with for inspiration, and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  5. Very creative design, Marcia. Love how you've used the star circle frame. Adding the one tree outside of the frame is so fantastic! And the trees are amazing with the frantage. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
