CAS Mix Up May's Monthly Picks

We had a lot of fun using Gelatos and Crayons this month and were so happy to see you playing with them too!  It was hard to choose a winner from so many fantastic entries!
Thank you for sharing your inspirational designs with us!

Our Top Pick for May
Susan (Cat's InkCorporated)

Susan wowed us by using her Gelatos to color the background
and then lifting some of the color through a stencil.  She also used her
Gelatos to color her die cut, layered butterfly.  The bamboo die cut
adds perfectly to the background design!

Congratulations, Susan
Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.



And more Outstanding Designs



Congratulations to Ishani, Chrissie, Robyn, Bobby, Marcia, Cathy, Raga, Hideko and Susan
