Less is More #350 Stars



Hello, my card today is for the Less is More challenge #350 OLC Stars.  I used an old stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Superstar.  I didn't read the challenge properly to start with and I made a card using the matching die set and popped up my stars with dimensionals. Then I had a closer look and realised it is a OLC (one layer card) challenge so I made another one using the stamps. I stamped the stars with my Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea ink pad and added some glitter using a Quickie glue pen.


And here is my first card using the die cuts and my yupo alcohol ink piece.

Less is More Hot & Spicy #349

Hello, my card today is for the latest challenge over at Less is More.  It's a colour challenge this week using hot and spicy colours.  I have chosen to use some new to me stamp sets from Uniko.  I stamped the flower from Beautiful Blooms II with some CP Inks (Tiki Torch and Tiara) and did some highlighting with my  prisma color pencils. This set does come with a layering stamp but I find it relaxing to do the shading myself. The leaves are from the Natures Treasures II set and I gold heat embossed them.  The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays WTF set.
The gold splatters are from a gold color shine spray from Heidi Swapp. You can check the challenge out here!

The Flower Challenge #13



Hello and happy Saturday.  It's World Card Making Day today!  I made my card today for The Flower Challenge, they are celebrating their 1st anniversary and there are prizes involved!! All the prizes look amazing, I would love to win the Neat and Tangled set!!
I have many favourite flower stamps but one of them is this gorgeous set from Altenew called Magnolias for her.  I clear heat embossed onto some Bristol card stock and coloured my flowers with Zigs and water.  I fussy cut them out and adhered them onto a white card base and stamped some of the buds directly onto the card base.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #183







                       No automatic alt text available.




Hello, is it Friday again already!!  That means its time for a new challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog.   It will be Christmas before we know it!

This week we challenge you to make a shaker card.  I've only ever made one other shaker card before but I did enjoy making this one.  I kept it CAS as per usual and die cut the Mon Ami flower from my front panel and added a piece of acetate on the back.  I stamped the flower on my die cut piece and adhered it to a top folding card base. I coloured it in with some alcohol markers, added some clear PPP sequins and adhered my top die cut panel on top with foam tape. I couldn't decide what else to put on the front of the card so I just left it as is.
