HLS CAS in April

This is pretty much as CAS as I get!

I like to say that I'm more grungy and complicated than clean and simple! :-)

Supplies and notes:

  • The background was made using a Heidi Swapp stencil monoprinted with Tim Holtz Distress Spray in Black Soot
  • For the leaf, I monoprinted a library catalog card (surprise-surprise) with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise spray over a different Heidi Swapp stencil, stamped off then spritzed
  • After that dried, I cut the leaf out using one of Tim's popular dies, and I added Glossy Accents to the geometric grid, then accented the edges with Pebeo's Dimensional Liner in Lead
  • The "hello" was was written with a Zig Emboss Writer and embossed with Recollections EP in snow on a scrap piece of black cardstock
What do you think?

Per the title of this post, I plan to share this at Happy Little Stampers' April CAS challenge.


  1. Oh, well done, Mimi!! You have managed to make a CAS GAC card!! Not everyone can do that (certainly not me) or do it this well! I'm applauding!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  2. So you gotcha some new dies? Way cool! I love this set. <3

  3. This feels contemporary and clean, very graphic and this design would work for a man or woman equally well.
