CAS Mix Up

 Hello... 

I know I only posted yesterday but an idea for a card suddenly came into my head and I just had to go with it. We'd been out this afternoon to collect a few things and I was just relaxing when boom inspiration hit. Of course things were delayed a little when I realised I hadn't fed the cats and I also had to prep tonight's dinner... But a card... For the CAS Mix Up Challenge



See, I still had the stencil out and the stamps (Lavinia) so all I had to do was find the umbrella dies


Which I embossed into the card, and then stenciled over. I only used two colours of Distress inks, Walnut Stain and Iced Spruce. I really am liking the earthy tones

Okay that's me done... 

Have a beautiful day/evening

Till soon

~ Ros ~

OMG Ros, this is simply stunning. The earth tones give a special richness to this beauty and such the perfect compliment for these Lavinia stamps. I'm in love with all this white and the crisp stencilling and stamping. This card is striking. Thank you so much for joining us at CAS Mix Up!

What a fabulous card Ros and the embossed umbrella looks so pretty with the added stencilling in those wonderful earthy tones, and the added toadstools and hanging flowers, and that sweet hedgehog under the umbrella with the ink blended hills are beautiful, and the kraft tag complements it perfectly. x

I thought of you when I did this challenge because your embossing with dies has always inspired me. How I love this card with the fantasy scene in earth tones! Cute hello tag and stenciled umbrella. Totally adorable!

Another wonderful use of the Lavinia stencil and stamps, Ros! The embossed umbrella is so pretty, and I love the contrast between the soft earthy-colored stenciling and the black stamped images. The little hello tag is cool!

What an inspiration... any dinner has got to wait for that! (Though I realize cats have a hard time being second in line). This card says "fall" in so many beautiful ways.

Sue Lelli said...

LOVE the scene you created and those colors! Fantastic!

Greta said...

Sweet card & love the color combo, Ros! For the life of me I cannot tell the umbrella is embossed into the card. Funny how we can't always see what's really there. Love the stenciling for the umbrella--wouldn't mind having a real one that looked like that!

Greta said...

Congrats on the shout out! So sorry you got sick after your flu shot, Ros. Hope you're feeling much better now.
