New Challenge at Time Out!

Hi friends!
We have a new Inspired by Words challenge for you at Time Out and this is the quote:

I was inspired by the words "she" and the concept of dreaming -the lovely lade in my Waffle Flower stamp certainly looks to be dreaming! Remember you can be inspired by the whole quote or just choose one word/some words for your inspiration. The winner of our challenge gets to guest design in a future challenge and wins a prize from our sponsor Newton's Nook -all challenge details in the challenge blog!  This time our GD is Bobby, one of our regular players and a super card maker!

In addition to the Waffle Flower stamps I used a Catherine Pooler background stamp in my card. Love the way these products combined! I stamped the background stamp with clear versafine ink for a monochrome look. The flower is colored with Copics and I simply decorated the card with a couple of sequins. Using this Waffle Flower stamp always makes me smile and makes me happy -I think I've never made a card I would not be happy with using this stamp! 

I'd like to play along at:
Stamping Sensations: Favorite Stamp 

Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you playing along at Time Out!

I'm in the DT of AAA Birthday Challenge, Yay!

Hi friends!
This is my first post as a DT member of AAA Birthday Challenge, woot woot! This challenge is a monthly challenge with a varying theme for making birthday cards. In the month of January the theme is A Stencil Background.

Play along for a chance to be called to guest design for us in a future challenge! This time our GD is the very talented Melanie. All the challenge details of how to play along HERE. Lots of DT inspiration too!!

I used two stencils in my card. The background stencil I used for the tone on tone look on the pink card is by Marianne Design. Then, after heat embossing the Altenew flower, I used a matching Altenew stencil for adding white pigment ink to the flower for making it pop even more. I quite like how this turned out! The sentiment stamps are by Simon Says Stamp. Some paint splatters and sequins finish off this card! This is a large, about 5 x 7 card. 

Hope you like and thanks for popping by! Happy birthday card crafting!
