RIC #83 & Virginia's View Challenge #14

I have had the Vintage Roses set from Altenew for sometime, and haven't used it as it seemed a bit daunting.  I was very lucky to receive the Misti stamping tool for Mother's Day and LOVE IT!  I can't recommend it enough, it made using this set SO easy.  

I made this card for my Mum and took inspiration from the dress in the latest Runway Inspired Challenge.  As well as the Vintage Roses stamp set, I also used the Mama Elephant Happy Everything set and Happy die.

I am also going to put this in the Virginia's View Challenge - Layers & Dimension.

Here is my card:

Mother's Day

Thank you for stopping by....    I hope you like the card Mum x

Little Tangles Challenge #56 - Clean & Simple

I'm loving that the new challenge for Neat & Tangled stamps is Clean & Simple, just my thing.

I heat embossed some vellum with the the Tiny Triangles stamp and then attached it to my card base by stitching the top and bottom.  I heat embossed the Dreams stamp with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder on card stock and cut it out.  I added this to my card along with a heart I punched out.  Very simple but I'm really happy with how it turned out


I hope you play along with us at Little Tangles.  You can link your creations up HERE!

I am going to put this card in the Simon Says Stamp - Sentimental Challenge & The CAS on Sunday Challenge #57 - white and one other colour.

Thanks for stopping by,

Little Tangles Challenge #55 - Sequins

Hi. Thanks for stopping by to see my card for the Little Tangles Challenge - Sequins.  I love putting sequins on my cards, but this is only my second attempt at a shaker card.  I like how it turned out even if I did make a few mistakes!

I watercoloured a panel to start and stamped some sequins and hearts using some images from the Photo Booth and Winter Wishes sets onto it before heat embossing in gold.

Now onto my first mistake lol, I should have used my powder tool on the inside edge of the card after putting the foam adhesive on the panel, as you can see by the photo the sequins stuck around the edges. I don't mind the look really but it's not much of a shaker card now!  THEN I stuck the completed shaker panel upside down onto my card base!  It wouldn't have mattered apart from the upside down hearts.  I could have removed it but I would have ripped the card base and didn't want to waste my card stock.

 So apart from that I like how it turned out.

I am also going to put this card in the Simon Says Happy Birthday Challenge and the Sparkle & Shine Challenge as I was inspired by the colours in the picture.
