CAS Mix UP February Corrugated Reminder

Who would have thought Corrugated techniques could be so creative and versatile!!!  So many awesome samples for the CAS Mix Up Corrugated Reminder Challenge from the DT, GD and our growing Gallery!



Here is my Card using Stamping + Corrugated Cardboard Sleeve + stenciling with eb paste and Tracing Stenciling.


I placed my TCW Cafe Latte Stencil over my Distress Ink Smooshed background and drew the black lines with my Staedler permanent ink marker and then fussy cut.  I made my smooshed background with Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Brushed Corduroy, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass by adding inks onto my craft mat and spritzing with water and then smooshing my watercolor paper onto the inks.  I used Loll's Smooshing with Inks Technique.

I set aside my cup and took a piece of heavy kraft paper and put it through my crimper. I then cut my piece to size for the cup and used my Tim Holtz Distress Crayons: Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to color the corrugation and blended the colors with my finger and spritzed lightly with water.  That really brought out the ridges.  I wrapped the corrugated sleeve around the cup and attached with scotch tape.  That was a fun project creating my main image.

Next I used a new TCW Mini Raven Mosaic Stencil to add Golden's Embossing Paste for texture to the background of the SU Confetti Cream CS (ret).  Stamped my sentiment using PB "Heartfelt Thanks" stamp set with T.H. Vintage Photo using my MISTI.

Next I added a thin frame using SU Early Espresso CS and attached my card front to my Confetti Cream card base using foam tape.  That was it!

I have really enjoyed playing with corrugated cardboard and cardstock this month.  Thanks again Susan DT (Cardmaker's Garret) for hosting your fun CAS Mix Up Corrugated February Challenge.

You still have until February 24th to play along.  Happy Corrugating my friends.  Hugs...

  1. LOVE all the textures on your card Nancy. Your embossing paste background adds so much texture and visual dimension, while the white of the paste keeps your card CAS. Amazing design! And I LOVE the colours of your smooshed coffee cup. Another great way to use a stencil and turn it into a focal point. The ridged sleeve adds even more dimension ... great job highlighting the ridges with ink. xx

  13. So clever to make a cup sleeve out of corrugated cardboard - and your use of distress crayons really made the corrugation stand out. Love the textured arty background too. Thanks for creating such great cards for my challenge!

  14. I'd never thought of corrugated cardboard as a craft item before these challenges lately, but that piece around your cup looks so cute (cardboard, cute?), yes, very cute! Love the 'grunge' look too Nancy, especially as it is also so wonderfully CAS! Have a lovely day my friend! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx
