Addicted to CAS Challenge #50 Vellum

Hello lovely ladies and welcome to a brand new challenge over at ATCAS, we have a fantastic code word for you this time round and I should know cos I chose it !!!!!

Yes I’m your hostess for the next fortnight but sorry no drinks trolley this time round due to my immobility but I have created a little bar in the corner , so if you would like to file past in an orderly fashion and help yourselves I would be very grateful. Trying to push a drinks trolley whilst on crutches is a recipe for disaster.

ATCAS - code word vellum

I love vellum and use it in many of my cards especially for envelopes,however this time round I made the envelope and forgot to photograph it and now its too dark .

Now here’s a first for me I actually like a card I made, yep no whingeing or complaining from me I love it and it looks so much better in real life, but where is the vellum you may ask well……

I used my Cameo to cut this gorgeous image it took several goes as this really is a very detailed image it required several passes and a new blade but I got there in the end. I tore up some vellum and laid it at angles behind the image and added two weeny bits of green vellum behind the leaves. I created a frame with the cameo, some foam and a computer generated sentiment and there you have it. Unfortunately the Vellum is not showing up so well in the photo but believe you me it’s there and it looks fabulous !!!! Did I just say fabulous,  wow I may need to go and lie down.

Our guest designer the fabulous Hannelie is still with us and she along with the rest of the amazing DT have come up with some outstanding cards , so why not pop on over to ATCAS and feast your eyes and maybe join in.

Addicted to CAS Challenge #49 Stencil

Hello lovely ladies and welcome to a brand new challenge at ATCAS. The boss woman Smiley Kylie is your hostess for the next two weeks and what has our fabulous and fun leader chosen to inspire us all……..

ATCAS - code word stencil

Leave it to our Kylie to choose something bang on trend !

I was quite excited when I saw this code word mainly because having my darling Cameo enables me to make stencils from just about any design or material. That was the easy part but actually choosing one was more difficult and I ended up being really boring and choosing a heart. That’s not to say I didn’t go through a tonne of stencils, embossing paste and Dylusions . It seems like the old mojo is still on vacation, never mind though I had fun trying and that’s what really counts isn’t it !

Sorry about the bad photo its been a glorious week here in Greece until I wanted to take my photo of course.

I spray painted a piece of  card stock in gold and made a stencil with my Cameo, I used shiny embossing paste and when dry added a touch of gold leaf hither and thither , what a  BIG MISTAKE ! that stuff gets everywhere ! I’m enjoying gold leafing at the moment  as it’s really quick and very effective, apart from the cleaning up that is ! A few sequins added willy nilly and topped off with a frame made by madame Cameo.

We would love for you to join us at ATCAS the DT have created some amazing cards for your perusal and we have a brand new guest designer the amazing Hannelie from Desert Diva, I do hope you will all join in and welcome this super  talented lady.

We also once again sponsored by Stamp Art Design who are offering five free digis !
