Here is my take on the challenge.

I had fun playing with the masking paper.  Goodness me though, trying to get the mask nice and flat was a bit of a trial though, I got it in the end.  I do really like blending and mixing the colours.  After it was finished, I thought it was too clean so I used my stencil and glitter paste over the top, I love the effect.  I did make another card with the star mask, I'll show that when I've finished.

anyway head on over to Ann's beautiful blog and I look forward to seeing your inspired contributions for this challenge ♥

Sending you X and O's

Hello everyone!  I am back from my cruise and I had a fabulous time.  Unfortunately, I did get sick with a virus and still fighting it now!  Still, I enjoyed it, not cooking for two weeks is my type of holiday!
I have a little card to share today using the 7 dots studio clear stamps and my favourite MFT stamps too. Scrapbook Boutique will have all the details to reproduce this card and products to purchase too.

 I'm still on holidays and LOVING IT!!  Although there is always a little time to get in the craftroom...!!!  I am a big fan of the inlaid technique and today's card is a classic example that your card doesn't have to be too bulky with layers when using your dies.  What I love about this card is that you can make a few at a time with the "left over bits" just mix and match and set the sentiment to match your occasion.. (I am all about quick and easy have you noticed!!!)
Head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to buy the FABULOUS MFT square stitched dies ♥♥♥ and a run down on the how to as well!!  Hope it is warm where you are!!

I hope we have a nice hot summer here as the last summer was pretty average!  I have a card today befitting the start of a new year and I hope there is not too many sore heads today......
I have masked the letters of the Lawn Fawn Quinn's alphabet so they are overlapping and filled them in with the gold wink of stella.  Scrapbook Boutique  will have all the details and products used for this card.

* trim neenah white card stock 10cm x 28cm and fold in half portrait.
*Stamp letters needed with on sticky post it notes and individually cut each one out.
*I stamp the middle letter out first so I get a good idea of middle and placement of my sentiment.
* place sticky not with corresponding letter to mask and then stamp new letter either side.
* Repeat until all sentiment is stamped.
*Colour in with gold wink of Stella.
*Stamp Altenew 'Celebrate' with black onxy and cut out leaving a little white border.

May all your Christmases be White

5 more sleeps until Santa visits :)

Funny story about this card...... I made the "bauble' with the Ranger white enamel dots and they were PERFECT!!! I was jumping up and down and patting myself on the back at how AWESOME I was!! Then I placed my handiwork on the table to dry and accidentally put something over the top and it all stuck to it arggghhh I did it again, but this time I used pearls as well to give it some texture.
No Dramas all done and then once I had taken a pic, the bow was a little loose, so I grabbed my trusty glossy accents to adhere that sucker good!  I gave the top a little tug and the WHOLE bottle spilled over the top of the card...... just wasn't meant to be :)  Anyway head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to purchase all the product used and see instructions too.
