Mixy has had a hard day!

AAA Cards, ATSM, CAS Colours and Sketches, Less Is More, HLS CAS


Hi everyone, I hope you're having a nice weekend.

I've made a card using this week's beautiful colour selection at CAS Colours and Sketches. I would have had something to post sooner but I have to confess there was a lot of faffing about with this and trying different configurations of die cuts and so on. Anyhoo, I watercoloured the two die cut butterflies and added a frame and little stamped sentiment, simples! Can't think why it's taken so loooong, LOL.

Also sharing at four other challenges:

AAA Cards - Diecuts
Addicted to Stamps and More - Clean and Simple
Less Is More - Use a frame

Thank you for looking, enjoy the rest of your day!

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week.

Just a quick post to share a card with you and I'm still enjoying the smooshing with acetate technique. I scribbled with markers onto acetate and misted with water before smooshing onto watercolour card. The birds stamp is an old SU! favourite, Wetlands.

Linking up to four challenges:

CAS Watercolour - Spring
HLS Watercolour - Anything Goes with optional twist of Smoosh

Hi everyone, I hope you're well.

HLS CAS, HLS AG with Dies, Less Is More, Time Out


Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week.

I started making this card a few days ago for Less Is More (colour challenge: mainly teal) but have only just had the opportunity to finish it today. 

I've added white die cut butterflies to the background to add interest but still keep it CAS, the butterfly stamps were inked with a marker and misted with water before stamping and I've added little touches of glitter to lift it.

Also linking up to three other challenges:
Time Out - Love and/or Friendship with optional twist of 'spotlight stamping'
 where you add coloured only to one raised area of your image

AAA Cards, The Card Concept, Less Is More


Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good week.

I wanted to play with the lovely Less Is More sketch again. This time I've combined it with the pretty Card Concept colours (Lime and Aqua) (clean and layered style inspired by the colours and flowers) and here's what came out.


Leaving the frame and background plain white just looked tooooo bare. I wanted to add some touches of colour - I do hope I've got the right balance of CAS-ness.

The stamped flower is water coloured with distress inks, so will also link up at AAA Cards where the theme is Watercolour.

Thanks for stopping by!

CAS Colours and Sketches, Less Is More, Seize The Birthday


Hi everyone, happy Friday!

I'm feeling in a Spring-y mood and felt like making a card to reflect that! 

I cut the "happy" in pink and in white and stamped the flowers and leaves on the white one using little Folk Art Floral stamps inked with SU! markers.

Linking up to:
Less Is More - Alphabet
Seize the Birthday - AG with optional twist of inlaid die-cutting
(the wing and eye on the little bird)

Enjoy the rest of your day.
