We are all back to the usual routine tomorrow so I couldn't resist the temptation of sneaking off to my craft room to have a bit of a play today!
I wanted to play along with the first Less Is More challenge of 2015 which is a colour challenge to use black + metallic + one other colour. I wanted to use these fab stamps and dies from MFT which I have had for months and not yet used.
I always need thank you cards in January and thought this was a really fun sentiment :) The glasses are die cut from silver mirri and the wood veneer heart is coloured red and covered with glossy accents. I found the background paper in my rarely used collection of 6x6 pads by My Minds Eye.
As the sentiment and die are brand new I will join in again at Darnell's NBUS Challenge....I think that I will use up my 3 goes very quickly :)
I also wanted to take part in Virginia's View new challenge - clean slate. Given one of my crafty new year resolutions is to try to make more one layer cards, this seemed like the perfect opportunity :)
I have used a lovely Memory Box butterfly die which I cut out of the card and reassembled to create a single layer inlaid effect. It is very simple but quite a neat look.
I will also join in the fun over at the new (to me) ShowCASe Your Style challenge which I came across through my friend, Nonni's blog. The current theme is to use at least one die cut
And finally I shall link up at SSS Wednesday's Anything Goes Challenge too!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have had a great weekend.
