Birthday wishes

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card for the current SSS challenge to add a Bit of Sparkle here.

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and blended the background using 2 distress inks overlapping the colours and then die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. For my sentiment I used some double sided tape and added some copper glitter to that and rubbed it in with my fingers. I used a SSS die to cut out the sentiment and added it to my card. Added some Nuvo crystal drops and popped up the whole panel with some foam tape and added that to an orange piece of cardstock.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,

Floral thanks

Hi everyone,

I've been a little absent from my craft room lately as we have been working on our kitchen remodel which has been taking up a considerable amount of our time. I'm probably a little rusty in the card creating world.
And now that the weather is nice it'll be time to get out and get some planting done. Off to buy flowers this afternoon.

I did manage to squeeze in some time last night though to create this card for the current SSSflickrchallenge#71 where the theme is to use a 'Favorite Technique'. I chose ink blending using a stencil.

I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil to create my background using 3 of their ink colours.

Once I was happy with the blending I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle scallop die. Die cut the flowers in black, the sentiment in both black and white cardstock and the black frame using the same stitched rectangle scallop die.

I then added some Nuvo crystal drops and popped up the whole striped panel using foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by,
