The current CAS Mix-Up Challenge wants us to use corrugated cardboard. Ha, I have tons of it in my cupboard in all the colors, with polka dots, metallic, wavy, etc from way back. A couple of years ago a friend in Germany took me to a big craft store and there I bought a roll of this brown corrugated cardboard. Love the look but hadn't used it yet. But this is what I thought of when I first saw the challenge. I also immediately thought of filling some of the valleys with micro beads, something else I haven't used in ages! Didn't feel like adding a sentiment...

Stay tuned for a different version of this card!

Stamps: Mama Elephant (small triangles)
Other: Stencil (SSS)

Challenges (click on the links for more information and lots of inspiration from the DTs and the galleries):

CAS Mix Up February Challenge
My choice was stenciling/microbeads
This card won "Outstanding Design"!

Simon Says Stamp "Work It Wednesdays January" - NEW
The corrugated cardboard was new

Can't copy the graphic, a warning comes up. Does anyone know why?

Another question: I saw that I have some new followers and wanted to welcome them with a link to their blog so that you can visit them too, but when I click on their icon Google doesn't give me their blog name anymore. Can anyone tell me what I should do? Thanks in advance!

Be well,


  1. Susanne, your card-board, sporting the microbeads, is ingenious! And eye-catching! And innovative! Guess you can tell I'm captivated! Very cool! The stamps/stencils are marvelous special touches!

  2. This is so creative using microbeads to fill in some of the corrugated card. I have never seen anything like this! Very artsy, my friend! Love the stenciled background and those sweet stamped triangles are just perfect. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  3. Ich durchforste mein Gehirn schon seit Tagen, wie ich die Challenge umsetzen kann und Du hast mal ganz locker flockig eine mega geniale Idee, die super aussieht ... *neidisch guck* ... *lach*

  4. Very clever card Susanne, love the look of the microbeads, Cathy x

  5. What a truly fabulous design Susanne! So clever! I don't envy you the use of those micro beads!! I used them once . . . nightmare!!! I couldn't control them at all, they bounced everywhere! What's your secret? A fantastic design, I would love to CASE . . . but, not with the micro beads! LOL A sure winner here Susanne! Have a wonderful week my friend! Luv n’ Hugs. Hazel xx

  6. What a wonderful and unique design! Love the combination of dots and triangles, and the use of the microbeads in the channels of the corrugated cardboard is a great idea. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up.

  7. Wow, Susanne! I love the triangles and the microbeads are ingenious! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

  8. LOVE your really cool corrugated triangle with your pretty microbeads and stenciled background. All your texture really makes your card stand out. TFS Susanne and joining us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs..

  9. Also von der bin ich ja ganz besonders begeistert! Super Klasse, diese Idee!!!!! Bei der challenge wollte ich auch mitmachen...ein bischen Zeit ist ja noch...

  10. Love your CAS graphic design with the triangle of corrugated cardboard Susanne! The addition of the micro beads add even more great texture! thanks so much for joining us in the CAS Mix Up Challenge! Julia xx

  11. Tu es un génie Susanne ! Quelle brillante idée de mettre en valeur un simple carton ondulé avec des micro perles ! De même que le fond avec le stencil de "falling snow" donne une légèreté à l'ensemble de la carte qui effectivement ne nécessite pas de sentiment !
    Il y a des années j'avais moi aussi acheté du carton ondulé bleu en me disant qu'un jour j'en trouverai bien l'utilité....quelques 10 années après il m'a servi pour faire les faire-part de naissance de ma fille ! Comme quoi, rien ne se perd, tout se recycle !
    Superbe carte Susanne et oui j'attend la suite....

  12. Oh my goodness--absolutely fabulous, Susanne! The beads are beautiful--love them in the corrugated paper!

  13. I saw the second card which is so graphic and fun so I had to come back and see the first one, which I love even more! These are cool designs, Susanne!

    I'm not sure about the warning you're getting, but I have noticed that some blogs I look at now have a "NOT SECURE" warning come up. It is for httpS URLs and I've no clue what's happening.

    As for followers, I noticed the same thing and I'm so upset about it because I can't do my "New Friends Corner" any more! I was going to mention on my blog soon. I am guessing it is because Blogger is no longer supporting the blue Follower blogger button because they want us all to switch to Google +. But I mean, why remove that bit of information and still tell us what other blogs people belong to? That makes no sense to me and it's so frustrating!

    Hugs, Darnell

  14. Checking out this card cuz I just commented on the one above! This one is equally fab xxx

  15. Wow, die sieht echt genial aus! Klasse Idee diese Microperlen!!
