Bits and Pieces


I am just stopping by to share a few cards that I have made recently but not got around to posting.  Things are a little bit hectic at this end whilst I wrap things up at work but I am hoping they will calm down over July so I just need to hang in there and look forward to the changes that I am planning for :)

Here is a CAS card that I made inspired by the ombre challenge over at Virginia's View:

I simply inked shades of green on a piece of cardstock and popped it behind the negative of a Memory Box die cut.  It looks lovely and fresh with all of that white space.

I will also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge regarding favourite products/techniques.  This card features two of my fave products/techniques which are distress inks and die cutting!  I have found myself using dies more and more over recent years and love the clean lines it gives.

Next up is a card I used featuring the waste from a previous design:

I had watercoloured a panel using the Tiny Flags stamp from Hero Arts and used the central panel on a previous card.  I used the remaining frame on this card and layered it with an inner kraft frame along with a Hero Arts sentiment.  The triangle stamps are from WPlus9.

I will link up at the Hero Arts tic tac toe challenge - I have gone with the horizontal row of heat embossing, watercolouring and birthday.

That's it from me.  I promise to come round and visit you at the weekend but in the meantime, thanks for stopping by!
