Less is More - Berry Shades

Morning all

I'm joining the Less is More ladies again this weekend.  They have a colour challenge: Berry Shades!  I've opted for purples cos...well...why wouldn't you!

Quite a simple card today which took a surprisingly long time to make.  Probably because it was my third or fourth attempt!!

I settled with using the Summer Silhouettes stamp set from Stampin' Up!  I masked off my card and pierced a border with my pokey tool.  I finished it off with a little liquid pearls and a sentiment which sums up what I'm going to be doing today.....

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:

Friday Mash Up {It's All Square}
Allsorts {Pearls and Gems}

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

CAS Color Q & Sketches Mix Up!

Last one for the night....I'm mixing my challenges.    Colours from Color Q and sketch from CAS Colour & Sketches!

We don't often get to use the AWESOME sentiment here in' just not in us!  But why wouldn't this be an AWESOME birthday with a cake like this!  :-)

Again with the night time pics :-(

This is made using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and coordinating punch (lifesaver) from Stampin' Up.  It's not overly obvious in the night time pic, but I've added detail to the edge of the card and topper with my pokey tool.  I think it could have done with  mat under the topper....maybe to add a bit more colour.  I might give that a go and post tomorrow.  For now, it is what it is....and I hope you like it!



Catching up with Less is More

Tuesday already and only just getting a chance to peruse my favourite blogs.  Over on Less is More, it's a recipe - Snippets - and Chrissie's birthday.  Happy Birthday, Chrissie :-)

Problem with card making at night....rubbish pics!

I've made this card by punching snippet flowers from the mat ....ssshhhhh!  Don't tell anyone!  It's using the Bordering Blooms and one of my favourite colour combos, Old Olive and Cajun Craze. I've finished it off with a bit of liquid pearls for the flower centres and a trail of pearls through the vine....although quality of pic and all that...sigh!  That's the problem with crafting at night....ropey pics!

I'm also entering this in the following challenges to:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop {Snippets and GD on LIM}

Hope you like it.

Puffin Muffin

Evening All!

I have a commissioned card today and an interesting challenge blog that I'm going to enter it in. Over on Muse, there are 3 simple rules:

  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow members' submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow members' submissions that you find inspiring.
Here's mine:

and here's the Muse Card that inspired it:

So I'm hoping the inspiration is obvious!  Different birds, but birds non the less but it's the sentiment that made me laugh.  Although in the end I went with a Happy Birthday message to the guy's lovely girlfriend, it was very nearly a "To my Puffin Muffin" after seeing this card :-).  Long story short....I heard rumours of his girlfriend making a muffin with a puffin decoration when they first got together....awwwww!  So sweet!  She's a keen twitcher too!  I think she'll like it :-)

Thanks for looking!
