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.

IMG_3607_edited-1
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.

Happy Little Stampers January CASE the Designer Challenge

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


The winner will receive one stamp set from Happy Little Stampers.
Our Designer for January is Kylie who used using HLS Thinking of You.

Ooooo! I love the beautiful bright colors, the bold black sentiment and the lovely little butterfly.

Here’s my CASE of Kylie’s card, using Happy Little Stampers’ Whimsical Friends (sentiment) and Butterfly Birthday.

Slide15

I loved the splash of fuchsia in Kylie’s card. It reminded me of Cosmo Daisies, so I did a sketch of a Cosmo from my garden.

Slide13

Here a quick slide show of some of the process I used:
