New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for our new recipe challenge at Less is More:

Dimension is one of my favorite "spices" to add to clean and simple card making so I just love this recipe of ours! I'm happy to be back at Less Is More after a break for one whole month -I've moved house and my crafting supplies have been out of reach. Slowly getting back into the swing of things! 

The month of October is sponsored by Uniko. Play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize... And for a chance to be called to guest design for us! Our guest designer this time is Claire and her card is full of great ideas for dimension -don't miss it! 

My card is created with dies by Concord and 9th and Winnie and Walter. As soon as I saw this glorious leaf die from Concord and 9th I knew I had to have it. I love the large size and the detailed look! I cut the leaf from orange card and gave it ombre ink blending for more dimensional look. I also spashed some golden water color on it for sparkle. I've popped up the white pierced rectangle (cut with Winnie and Walter die) and the sentiment banner with fun foam for extra dimension. The sentiment is heat embossed with white powder for subtle extra dimension! Hope you like! 

I'd like to join:

I hope you'll visit our challenge blog for more DT inspiration! Thanks for popping by!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!
For the next fortnight at Inkspirational we'd like you to use vellum in your projects! My sample is super simple and maybe the easiest way to use vellum ever but our DT has plenty of more complex inspiration for you in our challenge blog! Our guest designer this time is the talented Wei. Play along and one day you could be invited to guest design as well!

I've colored in a Winnie and Walter rose image with Copics. I had the pre-stamped and heat embossed Hero Arts sentiment on vellum ready in my stash... And I decided to use if tor this card. The gold looked a bit "lonely" so I added lots of pen detail to roses with two shades of metallic gel pens to bring more gold to the card. That's really all there is to this card... Super simple!

I hope to see you joining us!

Time Out Challenges Reminder!

HI friends!
I'm here to remind you of our current challenge at TIME OUT Challenges. You still have about one week to join us and we challenge you to be...

Our sponsor is the fabulous Winnie and Walter

Really love their products! This time I had fun using the Essentials Katharine Cutaways and a sentiment from Winter Wishes with Evelin T Designs. I'm trying to make Christmas cards as much as I can now... I'm behind!! I've used a wooden snowflake embellishment from my stash. No idea where it came from! I thought using two different reds would maybe make an elegant and yes, very colorful Christmas card. I quite like the end result although this was really simple to make! I've added dimension with fun foam and used just one rhinestone in the middle of the snowflake as a finishing touch. I hope you can see the dotted die cut details in the rectangles -love these dies! 

Please head on over to our challenge blog for all the challenge details and lots more DT inspiration!

New Challenge at Inkspirational!

Hi friends!

We have a new challenge for you at Inkspirational:

This challenge is a very special one because we have 3 new design team members joining us! Please welcome

Absolutely wonderful to have these 3 talented ladies joining us! Welcome, welcome, welcome!

I recently moved and this was the first card I created in my new home. I don't have a dedicated crafting space in my new home but the space in front of my kitchen window is really lovely -I love the light and the view. I made something very simple -a one layer card with a Crafty Individuals stamp that totally says "comfort" to me -what can be more comforting than feeling close with a friend or partner! This is a Christmas card with a Finnish Christmas sentiment. I've created a Nordic night sky with ink and paints, masking the image and a snow bank. 

I hope to see you joining us! Don't forget to check out the challenge blog for all the challenge details and lots more DT inspiration!
