CAS Mix Up Challenge Reminder - October 2021 - Botanical Prints

Hi there,
This is the reminder post for October's CAS Mix Up Challenge which is to use Leaves or Flowers to create a Print.  Bonnie is host this month and it is a Mixed Media Challenge.  We Welcome Izzy as our Guest Designer.
I used Pelargonium Leaves for my card inking up with Versamark, stamping using the leaf and heat embossing with Gold E/Powder.  I found that I had the best image with the first stamping.  The stamping was a lot more saturated with versamark on the second attempt as you can see on the last photo in this post on the bottom left hand corner.
Thanks for stopping by today, lovely to see you here.
Hugs,
Supplies:
Stamps: S/U's Special Celebrations
Card: Thick and Thin Basic White

CAS Mix Up Challenge - October 2021 - Botanical Prints

Good Morning Stampers,
It's the first of October and time for a new challenge at CAS Mix Up.  This month is Mixed Media month and Bonnie is challenging us to do Botanical Prints using real leaves or flowers from the Garden. I used a Gel Plate to begin my card with Acrylic Paints and a Brayer.  I have never used a Gel Plate before so this was a bit of a learning curve, I had a bit of trouble making the Acrylic Paints spread across the Plate but did manage to make it work.  For this piece I used Flower heads of a weed to stamp, sorta worked but I then decided to use a spray of leaves sponged with Distress Ink which worked really well.  To add some more interest I die cut a Frame from the main focal piece, which I mounted on dimensionals and attached the center on the card mat.  I finished my card by adding the Sentiment, sponging a 3cm strip on the inside and stamping the spray of leaves.
We welcome Izzy (Izzy Scraps) as our Guest Designer this month.
Thanks for dropping in today I love to read your comments.
Hugs,
Supplies:
Stamps: Altenew Sentiment Strips 2
Card: Thick and Thin Whisper White
Ink: Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink, DecoArt Daffodil Yellow Acrylic Paint, FolkArt 611 Barnyard Red Acrylic Paint, S/U's So Saffron, Blushing Bride, 
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Sizzix 3D Layered Leaves E/Folder, Honey Bee Dble Stitched Frame Die, Misti, Sponges, Post It Notes,  Dble Sided Tape, Foam Tape

Camp Lavendale - Project #21 - Hugs for You

Hello Stampers,
Today's Project was designed by Louise Jaroz. The Alphabet letters should match the same direction as the stripes around the edge but when they where cut for me by someone else they moved.  They should have been taped down so this didn't happen, never mind  it doesn't detract from the card too much.  The die cuts and crystals create a lot more interest on the front and inside the card.
Great to see you here.
Hugs,

Supplies:
Stamps: S/U At Home With You
Card: Pale Papaya, Basic White, Pattern Party DSP
Ink: Granny Apple Green 
Finishing Touches: Champagne Rhinestones
