Paper Players Challenge 52 CAS Sketch

Another great challenge today from the Paper Players!  A Clean and Simple (CAS) Sketch....sometimes the easiest sketches can be the most challenging!  I always feel like I should do more!  But I love the way this came out.

Melon Mambo!  I used the new Letterpress Fan for the background with Melon Mambo craft ink.  Love this!
For the main focal image, I stamped the Flourish Stamp using Melon Mambo craft ink on Whisper White,  Then I stamped the butterfly in Melon Mambo and used the KISS technique with the Flourish stamp in Whisper White craft ink.

Here is a closeup of how it looks!  I added a few pearls and my old standby, Teeny TIny wishes.

Play along with us!  We will love to see what you come up with!

stamps:  Fine Flourish, Butterfly, Teeny Tiny Wishes
ink:  Melon Mambo craft ink, Whisper White craft ink
tools:  Fan Letterpress, word window punch
embellishment:  pearls


  1. Simply elegant and beautiful Lauri! Love your use of the new fan plate and how it's un-matted. The kissed butterfly is gorgeous! ((hugs))

  2. Love your colour choice and the letterpress background is so cool!

  3. Love that Melon Mambo and the Letterpress plate! Great design, Lauri, I think you nailed it!

  4. Wow--that letterpress is awesome....I haven't had much luck with them. This is a FABulous CAS card!

  5. I love how you kissed the butterfly with the same flourish from the focal piece, Lauri. We don't have the letterpress here in Aus yet, but it gives an amazing look to your background.

  6. Lauri, this is gorgeous! You have completely inspired me to take that letterpress plate out of the wrapper for the first time. Love the kissed butterfly and all of that fabby Melon Mambo. Perfectly CAS in every way! Hugs! :)
