One last entry for this month's CAS Mix-Up challenge to use marbling, stamping and a choice (die cuts).

I die cut the HA leaves from a piece that I had marbled with shaving creme and reinkers and then stamped the veins with HA copper embossing powder.  The strips on the left were another piece of marbled paper and a piece I made by embossing it with more copper.  Pico dots and a simple sentiment completed the card.

and warm ears and hands and feet!!  The theme this week at Merry Monday is "keep warm" and I immediately thought of my SSS "Ready, Set, Snow" kids!

So I colored my little girl with Zigs, made a snowy embossed background and a couple of snowbanks, added a few sequins and a little glitter - and done!  The sentiment (an old one from Technique Tuesday) was stamped in black and clear embossed.  She's pretty cute, isn't she!!! - and you know I never do "cute"!!

Thanks for visiting today and your kind comments make my day!!

Am really late in getting my Merry Monday card done and it really didn't turn out like I envisioned - but am going to have to run with it.

I used my new HA layering snowflakes with frames to make the shaker and the sentiment is also from a new HA set.  I wish the frame part looked more like snowflakes shakes really nicely!!

Today's challenge in the Hero Arts discussion group's 90 minute challenge was to use a geometric design and of course HA products.  So I created this card with a few other challenges in mind.  Time Out has a lovely fall photo inspiration and since I had used a marbled piece for the leaves, it also fits CAS Mix-UpIt also fits the "fall" LOVE challenge on Flickr .

The leaves, die cuts, embossing and sentiment are all  from the new Hero Arts holiday release.  I had made the marbled piece using reinkers and wasn't really thrilled with the outcome - but die cutting the leaves from it made it work.  Used Neenah copper metallic cs for the circle, PTI soft stone cs for the base and added a few enamel dots to complete my card.  The techniques used for the CAS Mix-Up were marbling, die cutting and stamping.

Supplies: HA DI199, CL987, DI315, PW116
