CAS Mix Up May Reminder

Time for a reminder of the CAS Mix Up Challenge, which is 
Baby Wipe, hosted by the wonderful Bonnie.
There are video links on the blog in case this technique is new to you.
We are joined too this month by the talented Berry from Berry's Bramble.

This is My Card......

Oxides on photo paper and the baby wipe technique, stamping, die cutting and fussy cutting.
I started by blending several shades of oxide inks, onto photo paper, 
using a flower stencil from Stamplorations....I did this twice.
The photo below shows the top layer that I fussy cut to add more dimension.
I had so much fun trying out different colours of oxides on photo paper and 
then wiping the chalky residue off, with the baby wipe, to expose the vibrant colours.
Some where more vibrant than others but I loved them all!
I finished off my card with die cutting and stamping the sentiments
and a hint of bling with a couple of shades of stickles.
Streaks where left on the white gloss photo paper, from the baby wipes 
and I managed to buff those up with judikins microglaze 
(similar to Rangers Distress Micro Glaze) and it worked really well.

Thank you Bonnie for introducing me to this fun, new to me technique, 
which I have really enjoyed.
If you've not tried this fun technique before why not give it a go?
I am looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.....
Challenges I would love to enter......
Take It Make It - Craft Stamper Challenge - Anything goes so long as you include stamping
Stamplorations CAS - Anything goes without the option
The stencil I have used is Stamplorations although you do not have to use their products to enter

The stencil is by Stamplorations

WOW! GORGEOUS card, my friend! Love the beautiful mix of colours and your layering of the images. That is amazing fussy-cutting! The stickles really add some lovely sparkle. And the black banner and die-cut sentiment really pop against the bright colours. Amazing design! xx

Fabulous card Mac. It's so full of colour and light. Great dimension too. The glitter is a lovely finishing touch. Have a good crafty week, Angela xXx

Maria said...

Wow! Amazing color, so very pretty!!

Jo said...

Absolutely AMAZING. This blooms is just bursting with vibrant shine. The shades of tickles definitely add to this beautiful card. The black is the perfect choice against this colourful flower, it makes the glitter shine through. Beautiful! xx

aussie aNNie said...

Beautiful design Mac, love how the petals, 'curl' up and gorgeous colours. xx

Mrs A. said...

Fussy cutting all those petals must have taken you ages. The gorgeous result is well worth it. The colours are fab. Must admit though
I had heard of the baby wipe technique I have not had a look at the tutorials. Off to do that now. Thanks for the promot. Hugs Mrs A.

HilaryJane said...

This card is amazing. I love the colours, dimension and sparkle. I am going to have to try that technique. I actually bought some baby wipes today (I haven't used them in a while) just so I can enter this challenge. I just hope I can find the time for it before the deadline. Thank you for the inspiration xx

Ina G said...

OMGoodness what a simply beautiful stunning card you have created here M. I have just unpacked that stencil and now you have REALLY given me great ideas. So love the bold colours and the amazing detail of the stickles. I may just have to try this out.

Greta said...

You've done it again, Mac--sensational card! I haven't tried the technique, but looks like baby wipes would be a cheaper way to do what the glaze does.

Bonnie said...

Wow, Mac! This is like a big explosion of happiness! Love these colors and the sparkle. Lots of wonderful sunshine in this card! Love the colors and I'm impressed at that fussy cutting!

Marina said...

Love the glittery effects on that burstingly bright bloom.

Papercraft Boutique said...

Gorgeous, vibrant, glittery bloom, Mac! The die-cut sentiment, sunshine, is perfect for this fabulous bloom. Layering the fussy-cut flower adds not only dimension but a sense of dynamic movement too. Love the layout of the offset flower on the square card with the black sentiment across.

Wow, this is stunning Mac and love the way you have layered it giving extra dimension, and the added sparkle looks great. This technique with the Oxides on photo paper given this wonderful sheen by rubbing over with a baby wipe is so effective, and I love the white on black sentiment with the large black die cut sentiment together. x

Wow - fierily gorgeous colours and that touch of sparkle lights it all up. Sorry I’ve been so absent – there’s a quieter period on the horizon (at least until the next last-minute gig bobs up to spoil it).
