Mostly Words

That's the challenge at Less is More this week - to have the sentiment be the star instead of the support act and I thought it would be great to use it for a Christmas card as I really should have made more by now!

I used the gorgeous new Season's Greetings die from Avery Elle, die cut three times and stacked on top of itself for dimension.  I chose to just frame it using a sheet of peel and stick wood veneer to add to the rustic feel of the font.  I just die cut a frame using two of the small stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn - which means I have a bonus inner frame to play with later ;-)  The holly is cut from the same die and just mounted with pinflair gel to get shape and dimension with glossy accents on the berries.

Just need to knock up another 50 or so and I'll be set for December ;-)

Waltzingmouse PJ Party

I do love a PJ party and it seems so long since the last one that I knew I had to make time to play.  Not sure if I'll get time to do all the challenge, but I did done one card this weekend.  If you're a fan like me - here's where you play along today

Challenge One - Doodling

I must admit I shamelessly copied Claire's doodling as I couldn't fit much other than dots into the thin lines on this font, but I do like the interesting shading it gives.  I added a couple of doodled mini sprigs of holly to match the stamped one as my point of difference!

I love, Love, LOVE this new sentiment set - it will be featuring heavily on my Christmas cards this year....   It's called Tis the Season.

I loved it so much, that although I should have gone to bed as I have a big day at work tomorrow, I went ahead and made a card for the Bedtime Story Sketch too....

Challenge 4:

A simply stamped sentiment - that's what I love about them - they need so little else to make a card - cut with the Type It Die from Mama Elephant, mounted on a red panel with some textured ribbon on a kraft base.  Finished with a matching bow using Lil' Inker Designs Bow Die Mini.

I'll see if I get chance to play along in any of the other challenges before the day is out.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere!

Very quick post for me today as I found 10 minutes to play with the current Less is more challenge - 
One Layer Beverages

I used the new Adult Beverages stamps from SSS - I know as a stamp shop owner I should use my own stuff, but I'm a crafter first and business woman second!  Also, this set just works for soooo many of my friends, it had to be done!

The card was simply done with masking and the drinks were coloured with polychromos pencils and blending solution.
