Guest Designing for Less Is More

Hi everyone! I am very happy to be Guest Designing for this channge and sponsor for the month at Less Is More.

This challenge is a CASE challenge and the amazing Aileen has a beautiful card to inspire us.

Here is Aileen's card -

Here is my card -

I decided to use the blue colour for my background after embossing my dandelions (from the new release set Dandelion Wishes). I smooshed Turquoise Brusho onto my panel, drying in between smooshing.

I die cut my sentiment out of sliver glitter paper. A few blue sequins finished it off.

Happy Little Stampers is the sponsor this month!

Inkspirational #157

Hello! Well another fortnight has whooshed by and it's time for a new challenge at Inkspirational.

Our Designer's Choice for this challenge was chosen by Carol and she would like us to create something 'Mythical'.

When I think mythical, I think of fairies, unicorns, dragons, etc. I went with this cute little fairy clothesline for my card. I stamped it with versafine ink and clear embossed over the top. I sponged a little distress ink (Dusty Concord) in the background. I think purple is the perfect mythical colour :) I splashed a bit of water to create my splats and finished off by stamping my sentiment.

I hope to see you over at the challenge blog and join in with this fun word prompt!

Hi everyone! Woooo hoooooo. It's new release time at Happy Little Stampers and a few of us Designers are participating in a blog hop giving you the chance to WIN prizes! Check out the details below!

You should have come to me via the Happy Little Stampers blog -

Ok, so there are 6 new stamp sets that have been released and, of course, I have played with them all :)

Let's start with Dandelion Wishes

A simple spritz of water and turquoise brusho to create the background and once dry, I stamped my dandelions and sentiment using my MISTI.

Now for - Smile!

Another Brusho spritz, this time in purple. I stamped my sentiments with versafine and embossed with clear powder.

A CAS card with a stamped image and sentiment with a little pop of colour.

I used repetitive stamping in a grey ink for the background. The sentiment was inked with versafine and clear embossed. Sequins added extra sparkle.

I embossed all my images and sentiment then coloured the images with Zig watercolour pens.

Well! I hope you enjoyed all the cards I have made for you.

HLS March Watercolour Challenge

Hi there! Time for a new monthly challenge over at Happy Little Stampers! We kick off March with our Watercolour challenge.

Here is my card -

I have used the new Perfectly Succulent stamps set from HLS. I know that I have received many plants when moving into a new home so I wanted to create this card using one of the cactus plants.

I used brusho smooshing for my background panel. I embossed the sentiment. I also embossed the image and watercoloured it with my zigs. I fussy cut it out and popped it up with a little foam tape.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.



I hope to see you playing along and check out the Designers over at the challenge blog for more inspiration :)

Ta ta for now xx
