Happy Little Stampers June CASE the Designer – Rahmat

Hi! I’m happy to be here with you today for Happy Little Stampers’ CASE the Designer Challenge for June- CASEing Rahmat!

This challenge is sponsored by:

Here’s Rahmat lovely card:

Ohhh!  So very pretty! I couldn’t wait to CASE Rahmat. I had so many ideas from her inspiring and beautiful card!

Here’s the card I came up with:

IMG_7536edited  I did a pencil drawing of 3 Cosmo Daisies.

I looked for a photo of the drawing, but I can’t locate it. So, as a substitute, here’s another one that I did. IMG_9915edited


colored them with Copic markers, added some selective stenciling and


finished by tracing the flowers in black pen and adding the sentiment.


I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.
Please stop over at the challenge blog to see the super CASEs by my teammates on the HLS CASE the Designer Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterflies – 3 x 3

Hi! I’m here with 3, no 4, cards to share with you today.


I made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz, hand painted Popsicle sticks on regular heavyweight white card stock. I stamped the sentiment in gray.


I did not know this until today, but apparently butterfly ice creams are a real thing!

In 2008 the brand launched double-stick Nestlé Eskimo Butterfly and Nestlé Eskimo Night Butterfly, which can be divided into two sticks with two flavors to enjoy.
Who knew?!

Many of you ask about the little house in my yard. Here’s a view of the Wine Hut, as we call it, from my patio. It was moved here during the 1950’s from a nearby vineyard.  It was recently refurbished.IMG_8036edited

My 2nd card:IMG_8013edited

I also made this with Gelatos, a splattering of Smooch Spritz and stamped the sentiment in gray on mixed media paper.



My 3rd card:IMG_8020edited

A more CAS version with straight stamping this time.



My 4th card was inspired by this week’s Make It Monday #250: Masked Backgrounds with Laurie Wilson:IMG_8099editedIMG_8103edited

AAA Cards Game #65 – 2nd Birthday Blog Hop

Hi! I’m happy to be here today for AAA Cards Game #65 & our 2nd Birthday Blog Hop. We’ve got lots of Birthday Fun awaiting you!You should have come to me from Justine.

Here’s my card:


I’d like to say a BIG ‘Thank You’ to our all of our great sponsors!

I used some products fr0m Happy Little Stampers, a Butterfly Die, to cut out multiple white butterflies. I also used a Happy Little Stampers sentiment stamp.

Butterfly Dies IMG_6016edited I also covered some white card stock with washi tape and then die cut the butterfly. 

Here’s my question:

I love butterflies in general and butterflies on cards too! I don’t think I’ve seen a butterfly stamp set or die that I don’t love.  Do you have a favorite butterfly stamp set or butterfly die? What is its name? Please leave your answer in the comments for your chance at a $10 So Suzy Stamp gift certificate. I’ll choose my favorite answer!

The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers’  Fun Birthday Sentiments.

Can you spot my Treasure Hunt word  in this next photo? Look closely!


Well, this butterfly is going to flutter over to my Butterfly Conservatory now! I hope that you are inspired to play along. Next up in the hop is Sandie.

You’re going to want to visit all the other DT blogs to find their questions and treasure hunt word.  If you get lost along the way don’t worry, here is our Blog hop order:
