Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin – CASEing Angela Tarasenko

Hi! I’m back again Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin. 🙂 This is a great idea that Ksenija had to help us get back into the creative mode after Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. I’ve been having a lot of fun CASEing multiple cards from those offered up at Sweet Kobylin.

I’ve been so inspired by many of the cards and would love to CASE them all! I wonder, is it possible?

For this card, I CASEd the lovely Kraft card by Angela.

Here’s my CASE, using a here-to-for uninked background stamp. NBUS!

slide01Stampers Anonymous Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi Stamps - Vintage Lace Background Stamp WVBG015 slide03I’m pretty new to coloring on Kraft, so I kept it simple by heat embossing the large image and coloring in the spaces. slide02How about a rainbow in snowy January? slide04

I added some rainbow hemp cord that I won a few years ago from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Hemptique Rainbow Hemp Cord Twine 62.5mI added a big “Thank You” which I heat embossed onto vellum. I fussy cut away most of the vellum in order to expose the card-front.

The Mixed Media Card Challenge #31 – January – Change

Happy New Year!

Challenge Badge

Hi! I’m here with a card for The Mixed Media Card Challenge for January:

Theme: Change
(e.g., new chapter, changing colors, changing season)
optional element: water

Here’s my card:

slide1       I suppose that this is a very nontraditional card for the month of January in the Northern Hemisphere, but I tried to illustrate our challenge’s theme and the verse I used at the same time.

slide3

The blooms gradually change from a frosty, frozen white to a golden, glowing yellow. Moving from the frosty Winter to the warm Summer. This is something to celebrate in my book! I really love how this card turned out. It was one of those rare times when I had a picture of a finished card in my head and I was able to exactly execute what I had seen. 🙂 Yay!

I used the ARTplorations stencils Retro Circles and Bloom Silhouettes.

slide5

I started by stenciling a rainbow onto the white background panel with the ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil.

Then I stenciled white, silver, blue, green and yellow embossing paste through ARTplorations Bloom Silhouettes stencil. slide7

I printed out my own sentiment onto vellum and added a narrow blue foil mat to the stenciled panel.slide2

I assembled the pieces by folding the vellum around the matted panel and then mounting it on a white card base. slide6    This will be the first and last challenge for 2017 at The Mixed Media Card Challenge blog. After 2 1/2 years, it’s time to say goodbye.  Make sure you stop by The MMCC blog and check out my teammates’ superb creations! We hope that you play along and enjoy this final challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace, Peace & Happy New Year,
Melissa
