Monsters

Aren't these monsters from Lawn Fawn cute?  I just love the sentiment.  Bought the set just for these 3 tiny stamps.
I don't have the dies, but the images are simple enough to cut out by hand, with some basic colouring, some foam tape, that's my cards done.  Super easy.

You are beautiful

Hello!  Time for another Colour Me challenge, and this week's theme is striking, the two colours are:





















Pretty colours, aren't they?  And here is my take on.







































I white embossed the lilies (Clearly Besotted) on vellum, and coloured the images in with my markers.  The sentiment is also from Clearly Besotted - one of my favourite stamp companies. 

I simply adhered the image onto a white panel and added some sequins here and there.  I put the white panel on a grey card base, but the card base looked very empty and not at all interesting.  I didn't have any background stamps so I drew these diagonal lines with my markers and a ruler, and it worked quite well.  I used some foam tape to pop the white panel up to give some dimension.

I'll also submit this card to this month's Virginia's View challenge, all about layers and dimensions.

Hope you like this card, and there's still a little bit of time left if you want to join in and have some fun.

Have a great weekend.

Especially for you

Time for a new Colour Me challenge, and this week is monochromatic.


And here is my project based on the colour.



















The idea is inspired by Jennifer McGuire, a few months ago she did a video on how to achieve a faux laser cut card using die cuts, and I totally loved the look and the idea of it.  So I used this Memory box die which I thought would be perfect, and a dragonfly die from Clearly Besotted to go on top, and it work out quite well.  I'm pleased with the result.  The sentiment I used is also from Clearly Besotted, I just think the font and the design are a perfect match.  To finish things off, I added some sequins from Simon Says Stamp, oh I LOVE these sequins entirely too much, they are super shiny and good quality, really add lots of sparkles on your cards, and very inexpensive.

Hope you like this cards, and thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful weekend.
