CAS Mix Up (GD)

Hi everyone and happy Saturday!

I am so happy and excited to be Guest Designer at CAS Mix Up

tissue paper, spray inks, Versamark ink, gold embossing powder, die-cuts

To make my card, I sprayed some white tissue with hot pink and orange ink sprays. After it dried, I glued it to a piece of card with PVA glue and gently formed ridges in the tissue with my fingers. When the glue was dry, I lightly tapped the piece with a Versamark inkpad, sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heated, added a die-cut panel and branch and some gold glitter dots and gold heat embossed sentiment.

Tissue paper is a new medium for me and I had fun experimenting. I do hope you can join in the fun  and look forward to seeing your creations. There's lots of gorgeous inspiration from the lovely CAS Mix Up design team and some video tutorials to get you started.

Also sharing my card at Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes)

Incredible design, Sue. Isn't tissue paper fun to play with??!! Love the colours, texture and shine from your crinkled, watercoloured and heat embossed tissue. Perfect with the white die-cut and frame. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer this month at CAS Mix Up! xx

I LOVE all this texture, Sue! The colored tissue looks so pretty with the gold added and I love the gold on the tips of your die cut branch! There's even texture in your frame cut! Love it! Thanks so much for joining our CAS Mix Up team this month!

Love the way you scrunched up the tissue paper to form ridges and then did some gold heat embossing on it - you've inspired me to try that. I love your colours and the deckle-edged frame you put around it. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer at CAS Mix Up this month.

I adore the hot colours you have used to colour your tissue paper Sue and the extra touches of gold suit it perfectly. The white branch with the glittery dots and gold sentiment tie in beautifully too. x

This is so fantastic. The colors blended so well and the die cut looks so pretty against the tissue paper. What a fun technique. The touch of gold made it so elegant.
