Less is more #338 & SSS Flickr challenge #76

Hello!
Today, I'm sharing a CAS card using only die-cuts.


I die cut some images from white card stock and distressed them using Tim holtz distress inks and added splatters of water. For sentiment, I also die cut blocked message from navy cardstock. Then I arranged all the pieces on a white card base using foam tapes, and finished off with some sequins.





I'm entering this into the Less is More Challenge #338 and Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge#76.



Dies I used are Summer Greetings, Set Sail, and Splashy Waves all from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for reading this post.
Blessings.
Marge.

Altenew July 2017 Inspiration Challenge


Hello and welcome to my blog.
Today, I'm sharing a card that I made for Altenew's July Inspiration Challenge.
Here is the inspiration photo you can see below.
(Click the image to link to the challenge site)



I was inspired by the colors used in the photo which are green, deep red and pale red. This photo also reminded me of pure nature, so I tried to express those inspirations in my card. 
So here goes my card.




I first stamped Adore You on a copic friendly white cardstock, and colored them with Artist Markers Set A.
For flowers : R302, R304, R318, R335
For leaves : G702, G715, G554
Then I fussy cut the images and added some glaze using white gel pen.




To make tags, I die-cut a couple of tags from white card stock. 
I sponged one tag using altenew inks Frosty Pink and Coral Berry, then I stamped dots pattern from Handmade Tags Stamps set using Coral Berry Ink. Then I choose stripe pattern stamped it on another white tag using Frayed leaf and Forest Glades. I then stamped sentiments from the same stamps sets.


I cut A2 sized panel from Woodgrain white card stock, rounded string around it and tied it to the tags I made. Then I foam mounted the panel onto a A2 sized folded deep brown card base.
I arranged flowers and leaves on the upper part of the panel, then I finished off with some sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.




Thanks for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it.

Colorthrowdown#452 - bear hugs shaker card

Hello and welcome!
Today, I'm sharing a cute shaker card.
I made it using Pretty Pink Posh Bear Hugs Stamps set and other PPP products.
I was inspired by the current colorthrowdown challenge #452, so I incorporated red, yellow, green, and aqua in this card.



Main images were colored with copic markers
Bears : E41~44, R20
Red : R39, R29, R27, E59
Green : YG23, YG17

Then I cut the images using coordinating dies.

Scallop circle was cut to be used as a shaker frame, and was distressed using distress inks : twisted citron, mowed lawn





Sequins are "Sunny Days Mix" from Pretty Pink Posh which are combination of aqua, yellow, and whie sequins.

Sentiment is from "Woodland Critters". 
Other supplies I used are scallop borders2 and polka dots pastel paper pack.








Thanks for reading this post.
Hope you enjoyed it.
