Encouragement

Have a cupcake or two!

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is sweet things/one layer card. A perfect opportunity for me to use my Altenew cupcake layering stamps. They line up so easily. I had a lot of fun playing with different colour combos before deciding on this one for my card!

Anyway, I added a few splatters from my Twinkling H2Os and also added shimmer to the cupcake using my trusty Nuvo aqua shimmer pen!

Thanks for looking!

You’re so wise

Hello everyone!

When I saw Barb’s guest post for Technique Tuesday a few weeks ago, I just HAD to have the sweet owl stamp. It landed on my doormat yesterday and I inked it up straight away!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and added a touch of Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for extra shimmer. I then masked off the image and used a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to anchor the little owl. Finally I added a cute sentiment from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for looking!

Geometric encouragement card

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is ‘geometric’ – and this card is nothing like I had originally planned. In fact I was getting some hexagon dies out when I spotted this lovely image on a Paperartsy stamp set and I knew I had to use it. It kind of reminds me of an odd chemical compound!

I decided to turn this into a male encouragement card and so added a sentiment from The Ton Stamps – loving their stamps!

Thanks for looking!

Leave a little sparkle!

Happy Friday!

So, a little story to begin – Wow! Embossing company was a sponsor at Simon Says Create last week and I was so disappointed to miss out on their fabulous, glittery Create It, Take It card. Instead, I bought the stamps and decided I’d make my own version when I got home!

I used a super simple paper technique from Jennifer McGuire instead of loose glitter – far less messy! Papers are by Die Cuts with a View and all dies are by Simon Says Stamp.

I used the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge and will also enter this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by!
