LIM and Waltzingmouse Fanatics


A quick post from me with a few cards for challenges.  I have taken a brief break from Christmas cards :)

I love the fresh colour combo for this week's Less Is More Challenge and decided to softly ink through a Memory Box die in Tumbled Glass as a background for a lovely dragonfly die cut from Clearly Besotted.  The dragonfly is two layers which have a nice shimmer created with aqua and white/silver shimmer sprays.  The sentiment from PTI is stamped in Hero Arts Tide Pool.

Eta - I also meant to link this up at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Dots!

Next up I wanted to make a card to play along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge which is a sketch.  Here is what I came up with:

I used my Waltzingmouse woodgrain stamps and a fave sentiment from Uniko Studio.  I thought that the grey and teal combo would be good for a boy's card.  Here is the sketch - my card is a fairly literal interpretation.


I hope you like them!  Thanks for your visit - I really appreciate it :)

  1. Love your dragonfly card, Sarah .. so delicate and serene! I have this die on my CB wish list ... and can feel my resistance weakening! The crisp, graphic lines of your chevron card are fabulous! Anita :)

  2. I love the dragonfly card - the colours are so serene and lovely. I love this dragonfly die - it's one of my favourites. The chevron card is totally awesome - perfect for a guy card.
