CAS Mixup - just because ...

Hello!

Stopping by to play in the CAS Mixup - Metals challenge for October.  My card includes aluminum foil, smooshing, die cuts, stamping.  The faintly colored metal burst was die-cut from the leftover piece of aluminum foil that was used to scribble Sharpie markers then blend with alcohol to smoosh the background panel. I like how the wrinkles in the foil give the burst a slightly distressed look The colors of the Sharpies are purples, pinks, oranges, yellow.  Both the foil piece and background panel had waited a couple of months to be used!! To make the foil burst stand out from the smooshed panel, it was adhered slightly amiss to a black "patent leather" (it looks like that) circle die cut.  A small die cut heart from the same smooshed panel paired with a purple colored gem was added ... just because it seemed to work. The sentiment was stamped a few times in hybrid black ink for a rich and crisp look.

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

Note:  This is a color palette that is not my norm.  Also, for future ...glue the foil to card stock before cutting, because it is so fragile.  (There was no foil crumpling or tearing ... just had to carefully pick it off the cutting plates.)

Twofer Card Challenge #8 - Geometric

Greetings!

Another fun challenge at Twofer where the prompt is Geometric.  A framed stitched square die was used for my cards.

Card 1 - Celebrate It's Your Day (Birthday category)

The negative of the die was used (times 5) and stamped with the same flower on each.  The flower squares were adhered to a strip of royal blue and white diagonal striped DP.  A strip of royal blue foil DP was added for shine.  The sparkle on the card comes from the royal blue gems on each flower.  The Celebrate sentiment completes the card.

This card will also be entered into the MFT Summer School - Session 2 - Monochromatic 

Card 2 - May Your Holidays Sparkle (Christmas category)
The stitched frame piece of the die was used to create three shaker windows that were filled with multi-colored sparkly sequins. A black foil strip adds interest. An appropriate sentiment completes the card.
