Thank goodness it is Friday eve - another week survived. I am looking forward to half term break already but we have got another 3 weeks to go.....
I am trying to get cards made for as many challenges as possible - although for every challenge I enter there is another one that I miss!
Here is another card for this week's Less is More challenge, Mostly Words which I made playing with Altenew's Label Love set:
This is a masculine birthday card stamped in Hero Arts Navy and Wet Cement. I simply stamped the labels from the Altenew set in to a sort of grid and filled the gaps with little stamps and icons from other sets. I popped up the second Happy Birthday on foam pads and coated it in glossy accents. This was a quick card to make but I like the effect :) It was fun trying to work out how to fit all of the sentiments together.
Whilst I had the Altenew set out I combined it with Hero Arts Starburst Lace and Tiny Ink Dots to make this card:
This card is actually a remake as I had white embossed the lace stamp and watercoloured with distress inks but it looked rubbish so I die cut it with a circle die to lose the messy watercolour around the outside and used it popped up on foam pads instead. The tiny ink dots and navy sentiment add a bit of contrast with the pale blues of the lace. At least I saved it from the bin :) I can also join this up with A2Z Scrapbooking's October challenge to use 2 or more Hero Arts 'hard' supplies (stamps, stencils etc) on your project. The challenge is open for the whole month so there is plenty of time to play along.
That's it from me for tonight. I hope to get creating again at the weekend :)
See you again soon,
