Hi there blog buddies ... are we ready for that
I decided to play along at the MUSE Card Challenge with this one,
especially as my adorable Teamie Anita is THE MUSE this week!
Here's her card:
I've kept the layout very close to Anita's but used sentiments instead of
leaves! My daughter sifted, quickly, through my sets to find words and
phrases to describe her friend! I love the 'You're a Good Egg' and
'You Crack me Up' from Mama Elephant: Just Hatched. The others are
taken from Uniko Studio and Clearly Besotted sets. The words are stamped using
a sticky pigment ink then heat embossed in clear EP to add some shine!
The sparkly '18' die-cut is from Avery Elle then inlaid into a stitched circle from
Simon Says Stamp. To finish I've scored a few lines above and below the panel,
and added some sparkly gems from my stash.
Think I'm going through a purple patch!
This one is for a very special Auntie who constantly encourages my craft hobby,
sends me wonderful treats from the US, where she lives and even took
me to loads of crafty outlets when I visited her a few years ago!
She may read my blog posts and her birthday isn't until the New Year
but this one is to lull her into a false sense of security because it's just
sweet and innocent! The REAL one I make could be non-publishable!!!
I started out by die cutting the circles using the Simon Says Stamp: stitched
circle dies, '60' from Avery Elle: Count It number dies before running the
deep purple panel through a We R Memory Keeper Next Generation embossing
folder. I've then inlaid the die-cuts, including the numbers which have some
extra detail using a white gel pen! The sentiment is from Uniko: Classic Birthday
and heat embossed in white using Hero Arts EP. To finish a couple of
clusters of sequins, gems and pearls from my stash.
I hope you'll find some time to play along and don't forget to pop across to
the main Less is More blog for some superb creations by my fellow teamies!
Thanks as always for stopping by and I'll be back shortly with
the details of the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS ... what's more
