I am sure you are ready for the weekend.....I am :) Hopefully I can fit lots of crafting in around football, swimming, homework, cleaning - maybe I can miss the cleaning bit out!
The fabulous Darnell has her second NBUS Challenge and I have SO MUCH schtuff that needs using it seems only polite to play along...and to play along with a few other challenges too!
I inked up a few of the stamps from Sheena Douglass's A Little Bit Oriental for the first time for this card to go along with the oriental theme at Addicted to CAS. I repeat stamped the line of characters (no idea what they say!) and stamped the charm in red, added gold and triple heat embossed. A very simple design but definitely oriental! This is my second entry.
I also wanted to play along with the fab new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group being hosted by Barb Engler. The current challenge has a colour theme:
I had fun playing with SSS products including my SSS stars stencil for the first time:
I used SSS balloon dies, diagonal stripe stencil and star stencil along with the sentiments which I used as strings on the balloons (I love doing that!). I have softened the colours from the challenge but have used the red/orange, green, yellow and grey. The challenge closes on 18 September so there is still time to join in.
I will also link up with Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge to make your own background.
Thanks for helping me to get started on my mountain of unused products, Darnell. I still have loads to go at so hope to make something else this weekend :)
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment!
