HELLO 2024! Mix It Up Challenge Blog - Mixed Media

 Hi friends,

 How are you? Ready for 2024, did you get to read the terms and conditions before it arrived?  😁😂 

We're back for another fun year of Mix It Up challenges, this round we're focusing on mixed media - I had made this card before I knew the challenge but I have lots of mixed media on this mini slimline card. 

 I so love these candy canes from Honeybee Stamps; all the elements of my card come from the die set with cardstock from Taylored Expressions. I shaded some of the elements, also with Taylored Expressions inks. 

The base scalloped layer was cut with a Taylored Expressions mini slimline die, and embossed with a 3D embossing folder (sorry, I failed to write down which one 😟); alas you can't see much of it, but peek hard. lol

Once embossed, I sprayed with both Frozen Fog and Peppermint Stick mica distress sprays; the shimmer is insane! I set this aside to dry and worked on the candy canes - there are so many options in how you put them together, you truly can't go wrong! I used pink, white, and red. Once adhered, I used glossy accents as the base for all the snow - including the drips - I think the snow is my favorite part! Once added, I sprinkled on rock candy glitter and set aside to dry. I then watered down, slightly, some Honeybee brilliant white ink to splatter on the greenery and berries. the bow was cut from bright white glitter paper. Some white gel pen was the final touch. 

Thanks for stopping by; I hope you will join us, we'd love to see your creations over on the Mix It Up Challenge Blog!!
