CAS Mix Up January Cling Wrap Reminder!

Time for our January CAS Mix Up Reminder cards!

Stunning cards by our DT and Guest Designer, Christine (It's a card days night)!
Be sure and check them out for more Inspiration!

Here is my card.
Using Stamping + Cling Wrap Brushos on Glossy Paper + Die Cuts.

I had the perfect Cling Wrap background using Brushos on Glossy paper in my stash:-)

I had sprinkled several colors of Brushos (scarlet, purple and leaf green) onto Glossy paper from my friend Christine, our GD this month.  Then spritzed liberally with water.  

Placed a piece of Saran Wrap larger than the photo paper 
and scrunched it up to make lots of wrinkles.
Then set aside for several hours to dry.

I loved the more pastel textured looking shades, perfect for a baby card.

Next I die cut the larger layer of SU Thick Whisper White CS 
with CUTplorations Crazy Double RunningStitch Rectangle die.  

Then die cut the Square Peek-A-Boo window.
Another gift from Christine.  Thank you again my friend!

I die cut my cling wrap technique piece with the square die then stamped
the sentiment and birdie using archival black ink.
Next inlaid the square piece into the center of die cut square frame.

Then stamped the bottom sentiment and added the cute melon mambo birdie that I had stamped 
and fussy cut.  Next I attached the pink birdie to the stamped black birdie.
The sentiments and birdie were from a retired SU set..Nursery Necessaties.

I attached the image layer to fun foam and attached to the SU Thick Whisper White card base.
I was very pleased with the results!

Congratulations Shery and David on your sweet baby "Winter Rainbow"!
Big sister, Kathryn must be thrilled too:-)
