CAS Mix Up November Challenge

Welcome to the start of a new challenge here at CAS Mix Up.  Before we start, we'd like to thank all the talented card makers that put their names forward to be on our Design Team.  Thank you so much!

Here's our new Design Team members...

Joanna Manna

Julia Aston


Thanks to all that entered our challenge last month.  There were so many gorgeous CAS Mixed Media cards!

Maura was the Top Pick for October with this BEAUTIFUL card.

If you'd like to see full-sized views of all the gorgeous cards from our Design Team and participants, please click HERE to view the CAS Mix Up October Pinterest Board.

Now on to this month's challenge:


This month we want you to use a masking technique on your card.  Make sure to include some stamping (a little or a lot), masking, and then pick something from the "Your Choice" list in the right sidebar to add in.

Masking is the use of materials to protect areas from change, or to focus change
on other areas.


Please enter only Clean and Simple Mixed Media cards
