Penny Black Saturday Challenge {Midway Reminder}

 Hi everyone, back to remind you about our Penny Black Saturday Challenge. We are halfway through the challenge -

Anything Goes + optional: Fussy & Fancy

I created a Christmas card using the PB 'Whirl Wreath' Dies. Cut once with gold mirror card and once with white card. I layered them and adhered them to my panel. I added some red gemstones to the wreath.
The sentiment is from the PB 'Snowfield Friends' set which I heat embossed in gold.

We Whisk you a Merry Christmas

Hello!
Over the last couple of days I did this card bit by bit. I'm not well at the moment so when I could, I stamped the images. Later I coloured and die cut them. Then, today I assembled everything together and completed my card.

I have a couple new Lawn Fawn sets (is there an online addiction group??? I need help....). 'Baked with Love' was added to the collection to pair with my other newish set 'A Creature was Stirring'. 


I think these sets are just adorable!

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
ATSM (Christmas), NBUS #27 (Anything New Goes), Simon Says Stamp (Animal Antics), Watercooler Wednesdays (Any Occasion), Merry Little Christmas Challenge (Anything Goes), The 12 Months of Christmas (Merry ChristMOUSE)

Less is More #444 - Lucky Dip

 Hello and Happy Saturday! We have a brand new challenge starting today.


I have many favourite techniques and it was actually hard to narrow down to just one. I decided to showcase a couple of ways to use 'Emboss Resist'.

Card #1
For this card, I used a background stamp by CAS-ual Fridays and heat embossed it with white powder. I then used distress ink and a blending brush all over the panel. I cut it into two and inserted my sentiment which was white embossed as well. The entire panel was adhered to a larger panel which I then popped up with foam tape.

Card #2
For this card, I used another background stamp and white embossed it on to white card. I used a couple of distress ink colours to blend over the top. Then I used dies to cut out my butterflies. They are popped up with foam tape.

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Watercooler Wednesdays (All Occasions), AAA Birthday Cards (Birthday), 
Card #2 - Cardz 4 Galz (Things with Wings), Try it on Tuesdays (Butterflies), AAA Cards (Birthday), The Crafting Challenge (Butterflies)

Thank for popping in today and I hope you will play along with us over at Less is More.
