Guest Designer

I was honoured to have been asked to be the Guest Designer for July for 
This first one (Challenge #181) is to use these colours

As I don't have all these exact colours I have used as close as I could find.
Here I have used embossed leaves from Cheery Lynn and Impression Obsession dies, cut from some card coloured with Inka Gold Pastes and Distress Inks. After cutting I added a little more colour using Sponge Daubers and more Distress Ink.
The sentiment is from Creative Dies from Craft Essentials. In fact I don't have one which says Thanks... but I used the 'Thank' from 'Thank you' and added the 's' from Congratulations. The line fitted perfectly.
I can't remember the make of the little butterfly button die. I will try to find out.


  1. Yay - so glad you are joining us as a guest designer this month! Wonderful card! Love the shading on the leaves!

  2. Lovely to have you GD with us at CC&S this month Chrissie and what an amazing CAS card to start with. Love how you have used the colours. Hugs Bev x

  3. Stunning use of the colours and wonderful to have you as Guest Designer at CC&S this month.

  4. Congratulations on being Guest Designer, Chrissie! Your card is fantastic ~ love those embossed leaves!! See you soon! I'm all packed already with nowhere to go, haha! My clothes will be so wrinkled ... look for a homeless-looking person at the airport, that will be me!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Hi Chrissie, it's great to have you with us this month! I love your use of the colours on your stunning CAS card. I especially like how your framed the elements and used the stitching detail. Just fabulous. Caro x

  6. I always like the cards you create when you cut the panels like this. It's such a simple idea, but one that never seems to cross my mind to do when I'm making something. :) The leaf and the butterfly are stunningly vibrant and terrific! I'm so glad you agreed to be our guest designer this month at CC&S.

  7. What a beautiful CAS card, as always! I'm inspired to go and try a card with a panel like this one. I'm so glad that you're the guest designer this month at CAS Colours & Sketches. Apologies for being so slow at commenting, work in the form of a business trip got in the way. Liz x
