CAS Mixed Media December Reminder

Already time for our CAS Mixed Media December Reminder Card.  So many beauties for the month.

Here is my Reminder.....

I used Stamping + Sponging + My choice Emboss Resist, Die Cut and Dry Embossing

Emboss Resist has been a very favorite technique of mine since I first started stamping 15+ years ago.  I inked my Penny Black "Snow Dust" image with Versamark and stamped onto my Memory Box "Stitched Rectangle" die cut piece.  Then I sprinkled with SU Whisper White EB powder and Heat Set the trees and snow.

My next steps included the sponging.  Using a SU craft sponge I sponged in a circular motion from top to bottom...SU Perfect Plum, Pool Party and Soft Sky.  I then sponged Versamark around the edge and heat embossed SU White EB powder for a snowy looking frame.  I then stamped my sentiment with Archival Jet Black ink.

Next using my Big Shot,   I Dry Embossed a card front using SU Whisper White CS and SU "Softly Falling" Embossing Folder.  I mounted my main image onto my background using dimensionals.

This was a fun card to make using a favorite Penny Black Winter Stamp Image..Snow Dust!

You still have until December 24th to join our CAS Mixed Media December Challenge.   Clean and Simple is perfect for the busiest time of the year!  Be sure and check out all the fabulous samples by the Design Team, Guest Designer and Challenge Gallery.  You will be inspired!  Happy Holidays...


  1. I love so much stamping in the background. The colors that you choose very beautiful harmony with each other. The whole creates a unique card.

  2. Gorgeous design my friend. Love all the wonderful elements that come together into one beautiful card. The dry embossed background is so pretty ... I need to get that folder! And snowdust image from PB is so gorgeous, especially with the mix of pretty sponged coloured over top. Love the random white embossing around the edge of your main panel ... it really adds even more of a snowy look. xx

  3. Oooh love the concept. Repeating the heat embossed snow flurry by dry embossing the card base adds such an impact. What a great idea by white embossing the emboss resist edge ...and the tree. Beautiful composition and colours. HUGs xx

  4. I agree about the effect of repeating the snow on two parts of the card. Looks great. I also like the "irregular" edge to your sponging instead of it being a straight rectangle.

  5. The double embossing and beautiful sponged sky come together perfectly on this beautiful card, Nancy! Love that stamp and how you've used it!

  6. I was wondering how you got that lovely white edge on the image panel Nancy! love the embossed stamping and beautiful colors - this is just SO pretty! Julia xx

  7. great selection of colours and love the framing around the image. I so want that stamp, I just love the sponging over it. You also used my favorite embossing folder. Nancy such an awesome card

  8. Beautiful soft colours around the lovely tree! Perfect choice of embossing folder too - it goes perfectly with the stamp!

  9. The white embossing looks great with those pretty colours over the top Nancy, a great contrast between light and dark, and the snowfall background works beautifully. x

  10. Such a gorgeous Xmas card here Nancy, great embossing too ;) Viv xx
