There's a partay going on, and I'm heading over to celebrate with
that fabulous CAS Mix Up team!!
Bonnie is the Host with the Most this month - yay, Bonnie!
Here is her assignment:
Here is where my card started... with a darling little die from SSS. The key to my success was using the right water color card - Canson cold-pressed XL to be specific.
... a few distress inks for watery stamping ...
... and a wet stamping with just the outline portion of the sunflower! I even used a second die cut, water-colored all the little petals, and tucked them back in! I'm so
very happy with how it turned out!!
I know many prefer the bright white of TH, but I adore this gorgeous paper! I've also found that MFT's Whip Cream heavyweight card stock is the perfect match!
I'd better get this card delivered to the CAS Mix Up March 2021 gallery!
Thank you to the entire team, and especially to Loll, and Bonnie who
got this whole party started 5 years ago! Thanks, ladies! and Happy 5th birthday!!

Thank you for this win - I'm so grateful!
WOW! This is gorgeous Michele! You've nailed this technique. I love the artsy background with the watery prints. Sunflowers are such a happy flower and this is a happy card. Love the sweet little sentiment and the pretty frame. All perfect on the ivory watercolour card! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
You did an amazing job with this technique, Michele! Your sunflower die was a great choice and your watercoloring is sheer perfection...Love this pretty card! xx
You have mastered this technique, my friend! I'm so excited to see this GORGEOUS card! You found the perfect paper and the perfect frame! Thanks so much for helping us celebrate our birthday this month!
Just the right amount of splish and splash make this a perfect watercolor delight! Beautiful!
I'm so happy with the way it turned out too, it's beautiful! I love the way you've layered and framed it. Fabulous, my friend!
You have made this sunflower shine Michele, what a fun 'must try' technique!
I need to add your Gorgeous die cut sunflower to my wishlist!!! I LOVE how your die cut print background turned out. Fun to see the background before you covered some of it up with the beautiful sunflower. Wonderful CAS framing too, my friend. TFS and joining us at CAS Mix Up. Love and Hugs...Nancy
This is an absolute stunner Michele! And I'm loving that little sentiment! Thanks so much for sharing your talent at CAS Mix Up!
Beautiful! I can never get quite the right look with watercoloring like this...I must try your choice of papers, perhaps that's the ticket!
Stunning card, Michele! Wow!! It's so bright and cheery (much like I think you are in your real life) The stamping perfectly highlights your lovely focal flower. The detail in the frame around it is perfect. You never cease to awe me with your design skills. Thank you for sharing with us. :)
Gloriously sunny and delicate, Michele ... what a fantastic take on die cut printing ... you aced this one ... it's just lovely! Hugs, Anita :)
Wow Michele, you certainly have this technique down! This card is simply stunning! A CAS card that is cheerful but yet elegant, so elegant! Well done on celebrating with Bonnie and CAS Mix Up! Hugs, Brenda
Beautiful Michele! A lovely cheery card full of sunshine - and your print making was fantastic! x
Beautiful!!!! Gorgeous sunflower and lovely prints too! Thank you for the tips, as I haven't had much luck yet either but you guys might be inspiring me :o)
My next tip from you might be cs...
The print worked perfectly, Michele. The layering gives your CAS card so much dimension.
Brilliant print making. This is pretty, textural and dimensional...oh yes, let's not forget "yellow". Gorgeously framed, as well. Think you don't need any more lessons on printing from dies. Nailed it!
I have not had success with this technique so far - your card is beautiful so I know I must keep trying!
I am thrilled to see you in the gallery this month with this truly stunning example of the technique. I was looking at your wonderful card and wondering how come your base card is exactly the same colour as your watercolour card as that doesn't happen to me. When I continued to read I found out, what a clever discovery. As usual, I love all your little details and particularly that frame. Oh I see now that it is part of the sunflower die, fabulous xx
Wow what a beautiful card and a fun and fabulous technique, which you have nailed Michele x. Absolutely stunning x.
Such an interesting addition to your focal point. This is beautiful.
WOW...you sure did nail this technique Michele! Your card is a STUNNER!! That water color background just couldn't be any prettier and I love how the whole card came together too...beautiful framing!! A happy, happy card my friend!! Hugs. :0)
Fabulous take on the technique. Love this.
You aced it! This is absolutely gorgeous, Michele! The creamy white watercolor paper is lovely, especially with the matching creamy white card base. I'm enchanted! Wonderful to see this first thing in our CAS Mix Up gallery!
Your sunflower card is so lovey, Michele!
You did an amazing job with the print making technique, and I love the soft and artsy background! Your die-cut and watercolored inlaid petals add just the right amount of dimension. Thanks for the watercolor paper tips!
I love love LOVE this! The wet stamping in the background looks amazing and adds so much depth! You are such an inspiration to me all the time, Miss Michele!
WOW! This looks amazing ..... you've definitely nailed this technique. Your sunflower is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing at CAS Mix Up!

Congratulations dear Michele. Love the beautiful soft flow of colour for the background of this gorgeous card. I've been soooo busy vaccinating that I don't get much time on the net. Hope you've gotten yours and that you and your loved ones are well.
