Less is More - Vellum/Acetate

Another fun challenge starting over at Less is More today.  This week our challenge theme is Vellum/Acetate.

For me, this theme just screams shaker card.  I haven't made a shaker card for awhile, so this is the perfect opportunity.  Here's my take on the challenge...

I used my Zig Real Brush markers to color my main issue.  I love the bold and bright colors, while still maintaining the water color look and feel.

I stamped the sentiment on the back panel behind the acetate and added the sequins and tiny stars.

I popped the main image up on foam tape to give a bit of dimension.

Actually a pretty simple card!

Here's a close up of the card, where you can see some of the dimension.

We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

CAS on Sunday - Halloween

Another fun challenge is starting over at CAS on Sunday.  The theme for this challenge is Halloween! How fun is that!

While Halloween isn't really my holiday, I can't seem to resist the Halloween stamps, they are all so cute!

Here is my take on the challenge...

This is a simple one-layer card, where I stamped, masked and colored my images with copic markers.

Pretty quick and simple!

Here is a close up of the image.

Hope you come by and join the challenge, we would love to see what you come up with!

I'm also entering this card at CASology, the theme for the week is...SPOOKY.  I think this cute little guys can also be a bit spooky ;0

Addicted to CAS - Coffee

Another challenge starting over at Addicted to CAS.  It's a fun theme for this week, coffee!  At first I thought this would be difficult for me as I'm not much of a coffee drinker, so I don't have many stamps that might fit this theme.  However, after digging through my collection, here's what I came up with!

Hope you can join us!  There is a chance to win a $10 voucher to Stamplorations!

I've been enjoying making a smaller size square card, as it is perfect for a quick note while still able to send in an A4 size envelop.

I stamped and heat embossed my coffee mug and steam on some watercolor paper.  I then used my zig markers to color my mug.

Then a simple stamp and heat embossing of the sentiment, a bit of foam tape and done!

Here is a close up of the card, you can see the dimension I added with foam tape.

Hope you join us, we would love to see what you come up with!


Less is More - Spiders/Insects

Time for another challenge over at Less is More.  This week our theme is Spiders/Insects!  Perfect timing since Halloween is around the corner and I have a few spider stamps that would work just perfectly with this theme.

Here is my take on the challenge...hope you join us!

Never thought of making Halloween cards, but this critter is just too cute.
I started by using distress ink to color some embossing paste.  I then stamped, cut and colored my spider.

I heat embossed the sentiment and then adhered everything to this small square cardstock.

I'm really liking the smaller square cards.  They fit into a A4 envelop, but are so cute!

Here's a close up of the card.

You can see the dimension I created by popping up the happy spider and the sentiment banner on foam.

Come on over and join us, we would love to see what you come up with!

Tag You're It Challenge #58

Happy Friday!  Another challenge starts today over at Tag You're It.  Our guest designer and inspiration for this challenge is Leigh Penner.  Come on over and see what the team has produced. We would love to see what you come up with!

Here's my take on the challenge...

I focused on the colors of Leigh's design...white with fall red and oranges.

I die cut all of my images.  I then used some white embossing paste to add these wispy flowers in the background.  I then simply added my dies, popping several on foam tape for some dimension!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
