Christmas in July!

Hello crafty friends,

How are you all today?
I got a great deal at Spotlight a few weeks ago, Heidi Swapp Christmas embellishments were on sale. This pack has the cutest stuff - vellum die cuts, acetate snowflakes and titles. Last year, despite my best intentions, only managed a couple of Christmas cards, so this year made an early start.

For our second post this month at Lulupu, the team has decided to showcase CAS cards. CAS is definitely out of my comfort zone, but once I started, found it hard to stop. Today, I'm sharing three cards from the lot I made, hopefully managed to find a balance between CAS design and my love for mixed media art.
For all my cards, the background was created by using gesso + white sand texture through a stencil. Gesso ensures that the texture paste gets a bright white color on drying to match the white card stock.  

On this card, the tiniest amount of watercolors were used through a waterbrush to infuse some color before embellishing with gold stars, title and vellum snowflakes.
On this one, as there is a contrast already between the texture paste and kraft card stock, no paints were needed, just some embellishments. 

I usually make a few card bases together and experiment with different techniques and color combinations. One such piece of card stock was used to cut the three Christmas trees and another such piece was used to mat the card on.The words have been heat embossed with gold embossing powder after stamping with versamark watermark stamp pad.

Thank you for visiting today. 

Don't forget to visit the Lulupu blog and check more CAS cards from the rest of the team.
