CAS Mix Up Challenge - April 2018 - Rubber Band Technique - Fresh Foliage

Hi there,
Had a go at the Rubber Band Technique for the CAS Mixed Media Challenge for April.  I used thin rubber bands on a Clear Block for the Black background on my card using Versamark and then Heat Embossed with Leaf Green Embossing Powder.  The embossing powder matched perfectly with the Lemon Lime Twist card from Stampin' Up!  I finished off with a Sentiment and then decorated the inside of my card.
Technique's Used: Rubber Band, Stamping, Die Cutting, Heat Embossing
The next two photo's are a couple of other samples I made, had a lot of fun and can't wait to try some other mediums and designs.

Fiona's Birthday 2018

Hi there,
Today I am featuring the card I made for our youngest Daughter's Birthday last week.  I played with the Framelit dies to make the Oval Silver Foil plate by reversing the framelit and cutting off the fancy die cut portion.  I stamped the Case from the Cake Soiree  stamp set to get the flowers for the top of the cake.  The back ground was made by using the Old Rose Stencil and Shimmery White Embossing Paste, love the paste, it really sparkles.  I used the Paper Doily to soften the bold flowers in the background.
Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Cake Soiree, At Home With You
Card: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Powder Pink, Old Olive, Silver Foil
Ink: Stazon Black
Markers: Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry

Merry Monday #284 - Christmas Blessings to You and Yours

Hi Friends,
It's Monday and time for a new Challenge at Merry Monday.  This week Marcia is challenging us to Use Red and White on our Christmas cards, hope you will join us and play along.  I used the Seasonal Lantern Stamp Set and the Framelit Dies that go with the set. I coloured with my Stampin' Blends and added some Clear Wink of Stella on the coloured areas and the Dove.
Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Seasonal Lantern, Christmas Pines
Card: Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Stazon Black, Cherry Cobbler
Blends: Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light and Dark Crumb Cake

On a Personal Note I have missed a few weeks at Merry Monday after I had a Knee Replacement on the 27th Feb 2018.  After a couple of weeks when I had the Staples removed I ended up with an infection and spent two weeks in Hospital.  I am still working on trying to recover and hopefully getting on top of it and just starting to get back to Stamping again which I have missed so much.  Thanks to the Design Team for their kind thoughts and encouraging words during this time.
