Love is in the air

This sweet little image is a freebie from A Day for Daisies for us to use should we wish to enter their Valentine-y challenge.. which I do!
It's simply coloured with Mirage pens with a little added Glamour Dust. The sentiment is computer generated . The hug and kiss are from a Cuttlebug die.
Speaking of which... it's the challenge from Addicted to CAS this time!
So it's for that too!
This is for the challenge at Colours and Sketches, where the colours are

I used a couple of new acquisitions.. Stamps from Stampin' Up... Chalk Lines and Kinda Eclectic together with a die from Simon Says Stamp.
We're off to a Come and Sing this evening. We'll be singing Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen; it's a fund raising function in aid of Countess Mountbatten hospices in memory of a friend of ours.

Lucky Dip at Less is More

The challenge at Less is More this week is entitled Little Ones
There are a few ways of interpreting this theme and it will be interesting to see what appears in our gallery.
Here is a Welcome to the world card for a little one. The tiny shoes are from a Joy Craft die, the tag and the welcome word are from Paper Smooches.
Here's a variation using a Papertrey Ink Giraffe stamp and die.

Here are a couple of pictures of a card I made with lots of little hearts streaming from an envelope.
The envelope was made from Spellbinders Labels die... I thought it made a great envelope.
Here's how I made it!

I think it's great to exploit the resources we already have and make them do more than originally intended.
More die cutting here, but just as the manufacturers intended this time. Shoes - Joy Craft, baby - Simon Say Stamp, Congratulations - Tattered Lace.
As always, I add double sided tape to the reverse of the card before cutting fiddly shapes... it makes adhering them so much easier.

Simple Birthday!

Three stamps and a die cut... and that's it!
Sentiment from Winnie and Walter and little pussy cat from Stampin' UP!
It's for CASology's birthday challenge!

I Love you

Here's a card for the Card Concept challenge on Love!
I used my new stamp from Stampin' Up.  I just used two of the stamp layers and then dragged out some colour with a water brush.
The sentiment is from the Big and Bold series from Winnie and Walter.
The embossing folder is Adagio from Couture Creations.
