HLS CASE the Designer

Hello! Happy New Year!

It's exciting times at Happy Little Stampers: the New Year has made way for a new challenge. Instead of our monthly sketch challenge, we have decided to go with CASEing one of our designers each month.

This month the designer is.... ME!

To create this card, I used Brushos on Glossy cardstock. I have a video tutorial for this technique below. The pink splatters were created by smearing Distress Ink onto my craft mat, picking it up with a wet brush and flicking it onto the panel.

I used the HLS Thinking of You set for my sentiment. I placed the butterfly right on top of the words thinking he looked right at home :)

The Design Team have all CASED my card over at the blog so if you are stuck for ideas, pop over there and see amazing inspiration from them.

This challenge is sponsored by 

Thanks for popping by!


  1. I can't wait until I get my butterfly stamps and dies so I can CASE you, Kylie, although it will be without Brushos. I'm thinking a bit of smooshing will be in order.

  2. I love the warm, sunshiny colours on this card Kylie - wishing for some warm sunshine in my neck of the woods right now! Great classic design and I really enjoyed the video. Happy New Year my friend.
