Way to Go - Emily!

A quick post of a card I'm mailing to my beautiful, smart of them that is. The sentiment and card stock are from Stampin' UP!, and the balloons were made with a Martha Stewart punch. The border die is from Sizzix. Gotta run!

Thanks for the visit!

One-Layer Wednesday: Two by Two Plus Masking

So pleased to be able to participate in this week's OLW challenge and to post it on the first day! The challenge is to use two images, two colors and masking. Sentiment is optional but must be in one of the two colors. Hmmmm... As I'm typing this I realize I may be stretching Susan's parameters a bit with my brown "image"/sentiment. I picked out two stamps  (image=stamp, right?) and never gave it another thought until I typed the word "image"... Can the solid header/title count? 

My two colors are SU! Early Espresso and Lucky Limeade. The stamps and twine are from Papertrey Ink.

Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate the visit.

Less is More #55: Use Punches and Die Cuts

This is my second entry for the challenge this week at Less Is More. This card uses four different die cuts!  I love flower dies and punches and probably absolutely own more than my fair share, but that's ok =D This flower die from Papertrey Ink is one of my favorites, as is the large scallop die. A big thanks to Carol for coming to my rescue with this ribbon. The original 1/4" gingham I tried was way too narrow. In the picture it looks like I need to straighten and loosen it a bit though.

I appreciate the visit today and hope you'll come back soon.

Less is More, Week #55: Theme - Use Punches or Die Cuts

As always, Mandi and Chrissie have a wonderful challenge this week on their blog - to use punches or die cuts. I chose two Martha Stewart punches for this cas card using multi layers vs. foam dots and creating a pompom for the party hat from twine. So simple! 

Thank you so much for taking time to visit.
