ATCAS #223 - Grid

This time at the Addicted to CAS challenge the code word is "grid."  I hope you'll play along with us!

I'm really chuffed about this card. It is so simple, so very simple. I sponged the grid stencil with DO Salvaged Patina, stamped the image on top then colored it up with Zigs.  

Note this is not watercolor paper so I used the Zigs more like regular markers. I stamped the image using Versafine without thinking about how I was going to color it.  D'oh!

ATSM #432 - Christmas

Another Christmas prompt at the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #432!

I hot foiled the Spellbinders String of Lights on the righthand card then decided to experiment.  Can foil cardstock be hot foiled?  Yes, it can!

SOSS #212 - T for Tags

Hashtag immediately popped into my brain for the latest Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #212 T for Tags.  And I'm in love with hot foiling so there's that.  

This was an interesting experiment as I obviously don't have a hot foil plate like this so I printed it on my laser printer and used Deco Foil along with my solid plate and Glimmer machine to foil it. I was too lazy to get my laminator out. The leftover was too pretty to toss so I used the same set up, this time with Deco Foil toner sheets. 

For those of you wondering, I don't know who Dave is but assume he's a male Karen.

ATCAS #222 - Dots

The latest Addicted to CAS challenge's code word is "dots."  Lots of possibilities there really. I went with the first that popped in my head--little spattered dots of color.

HLS Christmas - Snow Globe

I'm so excited the latest HLS Christmas Challenge optional ingredient is glitter.  Umm, yes, please!

I created a cute little shaker using some products I got at the end of last year. I'm particularly enamored with the Altenew Globe Builder dies. I love the different shapes and know it will be a go-to in my stash.

I created a frosted effect on the acetate by sponging Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink with one of those fingers-sized sponge daubers. How soft and dreamy.
