CAS Mix Up July Reminder Post

Time for the reminder post for the CAS Mix Up Challenge

Fabulous inspiration in the gallery......
Such creative cards from the wonderful design team 
and our guest designer Susan from The catsinkcorporated.
Pop across and take a look.....

This is my card......

I have coloured my die cuts with lots of different colours of Lindy Magicals and water.
I have stamped the sentiments and my choice is free hand drawing and water colouring.
You can see the shimmer of the Lindy Magicals in this picture.
I love how you get unpredictable colours.
Even though the die cuts are small I kept going until I got an artsy and wild looking effect.
The stems have been drawn in with a dipping pen and distress stains.
The sentiments have been stamped with the help of the Misti.
I die cut the poppies and then snipped the heads to use as I wanted 
and individually coloured the small die cuts.

I have a designer paper that gave me the inspiration for the layout of my card, 
as of course I am never going to cut it up x.

Thank you for stopping by 
and I am looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations in the gallery.

Challenges I would love to enter....

This looks very like s Memory Box Poppy die that I have, but I would never have thought to chop the heads off and do this with them Mac. The drawn stems with the sentiments vertically up some of the stems looks great. A really pretty effect. x

Love your poppies! Breathtaking card!

Mac, this is stunning. I love the softness of the flowers and the vertical sentiments. There is such a feeling of whimsy about the arrangement. Absolutely gorgeous!

Marina said...

Really lovely. The way you did the stems with the sentiments is a great idea and one I'd like to try. I hope you don't mind I've pinned the photo for inspiration.

Absolutely Magical shimmery poppy flowers using your Magicals, Mac. TFS the photo of your die cut set (Memory Box?) and photo of your individual poppy blooms. I clicked on both to get a much larger picture. I could really see the pretty shimmer on your flowers and the different colors. Such a creative CAS flower design by drawing your stems and added a few stamped sentiments. Wow! Hugs..

Heidi MyLittleStampingBlog said...

Mac, the little sentiments hidden in your flower garden are just the best. Very pretty flowers!

Bonnie said...

Do you hoard designer paper too, Mac? LOL! When you can come up with designs like this, you don't need designer paper, my friend! Gorgeous flowers and their stems are awesome!

Julia Aston said...

Such a great minimalist look to your design Mac! Love the tall stems - some with sentiments and the beautifully colored flowers teetering on top of them! Frame this up and hang it on your wall!! Julia xx

Cathy said...

Such a pretty card Mac, the colours are stunning, must check out these magicals! I laughed when I read you weren't going to chop up your dp, I have a pile of "precious" papers too that i just look at now and then lol! Love your artsy stems too, such a creative design, Cathy x

Ina G said...

I'm sooooooooooo glad you showed us the colours you used with those 'Magicals' I know I NEED more. Of course how clever you are to chop the heads of the poppies. I would never think of that. Thanks for enabling here M. Love the wiggly stems and sentiments. Certainly CAS but oh so stunning. Pure magic my friend.

Papercraft Boutique said...

Your Lindy Magicals colored poppies are so shimmery and pretty, Mac! The blend of the colors is beautiful! And It's a wonderful idea to hand-draw the stems and add the sentiments to them. What I most love about this card is the placement of the flowers. It's so pleasing to the eye. Hideko xx

Loll said...

Your card is so unique and artsy, Mac. LOVE the colours of your mix of magicals for those beautiful poppy heads. And such a clever and creative design stamping the sentiment in the middle of some of your hand-drawn stems. Awesome!! xx

Oh my goodness Mac - this is simply beautiful. This is one of my favourite dies (that actually does get used) and you have presented it so well here. I love it! x

Sandma's Handmade Cards said...

How very clever of you Mac to use just the heads of the die cuts and to use them in this way. I love the way that you’ve used the words through the stems of the Poppies and your layout is superb. I really admire the way that you think out of the box to inspire us all, thank you. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Darnell said...

Well, you know, Mac, I really should lecture you about not hoarding your DSP, but when you can make your own gorgeous colored patterns, you don't need to use your beloved paper!! This is a brilliant work of art and I love it! Hugs, Darnell

*Vicki* said...

Your flowers look absolutely amazing Mac! I love the swirls of colors and how you've made them stand out on your clean background! :) Beautifully done! HUGS

Pamellia Johnson said...

What a stunning CAS card! I love all the shimmery colours in the flower petals, Lindy's is awesome! Such a soft garden feel to this, but my favourite bit is the text you incorporated into the stems! Brilliant my friend!!

Apparently it's supposed to cool off and even rain next week. I sure hope they're right about that, we could really use a break from the crazy!! lol. Have a wonderful weekend! hugs :)

Brenda in IN said...

This is absolutely beautiful. The colors, the flowers and the design. I am in awe.
