Simply Less is More # 130

Hello All!

Yes... it`s me and I`m here on a saturday too.I decided to stuff the housework and have some me time.
The challenge over at Simply Less is More is to use this picture for inspiration,

Oh just look at those heels. What I wouldn`t give to be able to wear heels like that again.
Last sunday we had the family around and my eldest grandaughter was wearing a pair of shoes similar to these. Ofcourse I had to try them and for 2 minutes I was transported back to my teens. Only 2 minutes mind...I couldn`t wait to get them off again lol. I have to admit though that the feeling of elegance you get with high heels makes you feel so good. If only...
Anyway, enough rambling, on to my card,

For once I had a stamp to go with a challenge. I bought this Jillybean Soup stamp a few months ago and this is the first time it`s seen ink.
I stamped the image with Versafine Black ink, then cut it out with a nestie square. I cut another, larger square and adhered them using foam pads then placed both squares onto the card using more foam pads.
The sentiment is part of the same stamp set.

Right, time to look at the rest of the entries.

LiM # 129

Hello All.
I`ve been a very bad blogger lately, so much to do, so little time to do it. I am, however, back today with a card I`ve made for this weeks Simply Less is More 
challenge which is to use handmade flowers on our cards. I`m a bit late but at least I`m here.

I`ve used the X cut Glorious Gerbera Dies for my flower in gorgeous bright orange held together with a black spotty brad.
On the card base I used a Memory Box Circle Burst Die and put some peach card behind the cut outs.
The sentiment is a mix of Layers of Color and Waltzingmouse stamps stamped on Versafine Black.

I`m still trying to sort out my time management and failing miserably but hopefully I`ll be back soon with more cards to share.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

Dynamic Duos #61

Hello there, another quick post from me as it`s absolutely baking in the loft today. Not that I`m complaining, we`ve waited long enough for some decent weather. I hope you are all enjoying it while it lasts.

I`m joining in at Dynamic Duos this week. It`s ages since I last participated and the colours for this week are lovely, take a look.

Here is my entry,
Dp is from Kameo Cards but I think they`ve stopped trading now.
I cut out a Spellbinders Floral Oval in pale pink card and placed it using foam pads.
The Cherry Blossom flowes are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I`ve cut the leaves using a Memory Box die and some sand coloured DP from Papermania Capsule Collection.
I`ve added some pale pink stamen to some of the leaves and dotted some flat back pearls around the card.
The sentiment is PC generated and cut with a fishtail.

Right, thats me done. I`m in danger of melting into pool on the floor :)

Silver Wedding Anniversary

Well hello there, I know ...it`s been a long time. Apart from the decorating, whch is now finished, thank goodness, and a few days away in the caravan, my only excuse is that the glorious weather has been far too good to pass up on.
I am back today though with a card. A few weeks ago I was asked by a friend, to make a silver wedding anniversary card for her to give to her husband. Now you know that me and male cards don`t make good buddies but I had to make an effort and this is what I came up with,

The DP is  Pink Petticoat Brocade printed in silver.
I used a Spellbinder Lace Doily Motif die because I didn`t think it was overly feminine.
The Stars were cut out with a X Cut die in silver and white card and the Hearts are made with a Sizzix die.
I added a heart shaped charm to the finished die cuts. The sentiment is PC generated and cut out with a nestie square die and raised with foam pads.
I got some good feedback so I think both were pleased with it :)

Right, still trying to get back into the swing of things and hopefully won`t leave it so long before the next post.
