Hi! I’m happy to be here with you today for  Happy Little Stampers’ May Case the Designer Challenge.

The winner will receive a $15 (Australian) gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers.
I am excited to be your designer for May!
Here’s my card:IMG_3597_edited-1
I used a die from HLS Butterfly Dies and a sentiment from Thinking of You.
I’d like to play this card along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #228-#229,at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday’s Anything Goes, and FUSION-Sweet Orange Blossoms.   My card reminds me of both the Sketch and the Inspiration photo. Don’t you think? And I’d like to play at The Card Concept #54 {Spring Flowers} (CAS Mixed Media).

I used a stencil and stenciled white embossing paste onto the black card stock.

I added a small amount of red water color paint to the blooms. (This butterfly is going to flutter over to my conservatory.) IMG_3604_edited-1
I also added a water colored die cut butterfly.IMG_3606_edited-1
Lastly, I stamped the “Thanks” in embossing ink and then I heat embossed in white embossing powder. I’d like to play this along at CAS Mix Up and at Love to Create Challenge 9 Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes. I’d also like to share this over st Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday April 2016: Flowers.

Please stop over at the challenge blog to see the super CASEs by my teammates on the HLS CAS Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by!
XO, Grace & Peace

  2. Hi Mellissa, Your card is lovely with the surprise of watercolored dies:) Great color pops on the black cardstock. Thanks for stopping by my blog and asking about the Sentiment stamp from my post on Mixed media Picture tutorial using Penny Black Stencil Promenade. The
    stamp set is from Penny Black, named Life’s messages. Have a Blessed day!


  3. Your water-coloring is FABULOUS, Melissa! The composition and layout are awesome! I have seen so much “growth” in your skills and talent in the last two years! Kudos to you! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge!

  5. OMG Melissa, I love how your beautiful stenciled embossed image pops with your black background and heat embossed sentiment. Your little bit of watercoloring on your flowers is so creative. TFS your detailed description and joining us at CAS Mix Up May Challenge.
