More sparkle

Fonts: Trocchi, Gasoline Alley, Cafe & brewery
Die: nested squares (QuicKutz)
Other: Aurora ep; glitter (lots); gloss (even more...)

Continuing to take inspiration from Festive Friday, I just can’t look away from the frame over the mantel.
 

I told you there was more mileage in that sentiment too.  Feel free to save it.

Wedding card

Stamps: Hello Sunshine (Lawn Fawn); Free Spirits (PS); Fanciful Flowers (Elzybells)
Ink: Lulu Lavender, Angel Pink (Memento); Sea Glass (Avery Elle)
Dies: Die-namics Ampersand (MFT), Stitched Mats (LI)
Font: Goudy Bookletter 1911

It's 'Anything Goes' at Less is More this week, in honour of Chrissie's birthday.  Here is the card I made for my nephew's upcoming nuptials. 
The ampersand is stacked with 3 layers of lavender cardstock to co-ordinate with the stamping.  I used a whole host of the tiny stamps from a variety of sets for the confetti around the names.

Sparkling Christmas

Dies: Large Geometric Rose (Clearly Besotted); Nesting Squares (QuicKutz)
Font: Trocchi, Cafe & Brewery
Other: Swiss Dots embossing folder (Provocraft); Wink of Stella
Michelle is having a break from CAS-ual Fridays; this is the last challenge until next year.  So I thought I'd do a Christmas card for the tic tac toe challenge.
I've chosen the dots-white-sequins line. But aaarggh, the picture doesn't show the sparkle!  The star is the centre cut out from the geometric rose die, stacked 3x for depth & covered with sparkly wink of stella.  Promise!
Plenty of white, which I hope compensates for the single solitary sequin.  Dots are by way of an embossing folder.
Am liking the sentiment - you may see more from that.

PS Have just realised that this card was subliminally inspired by this photo over at Festive Friday:



And another - Simon Says... Emboss It for this week's Wednesday Challenge.

Cheers, Darnell

Stamps: Free Spirits (PS); Cheers (Woodware)
Ink: Bahama Blue, RoseBud, Tangelo (Memento); Lime Green (HA)

Today is Darnell's birthday (djkardkreations.com) & Ardyth is hosting a party. Darnell has mentioned the occasional little tipple in her blog posts, so I wonder if there is a shelf in the Playhouse that looks a bit like this?  If I had a Playhouse, I think I'd make room for one!
 
Enjoy your day Darnell & thanks for your many kind comments.

Minecraft creeper card

Stamps: Rad (CAS-ual Fridays)
Ink: Staz-On

Has your house been taken over by MineCraft?  Mine has.  My boys speak a whole new language, & I find myself singing minecraft lyrics in my zumba class, instead of the originals!
 
I have been toying with making a creeper card for a while now, but I was going to do it using the tiny squares from the SSS grid die.  In truth I have put it off because it seemd like too much work & I am nothing if not lazy.
 
However, today I saw this on Ardyth's Pinterest board:
 
Gift idea and a quick, no stamping card for a boy
 
and remembered this from Mini Eco:
 
Woven space invaders
 
& my lazy genes rejoiced!
 
I have a whole load of 1/8" ribbon in a variety of colours.  Naturally none were the murky green required, but I soon fixed that wih a couple of pro-markers.  I used random splodges of darker green on top to get the pixellated look:
 
 
These were then attached to some square cardstock & the black ribbon woven vertically for the features.
 
 
Having framed & mounted it, I couldn't get any sentiment to look right, until I hit upon some washi tape.

Am now going to slip in under the wire for CAS-ual Fridays!

Hoppy Birthday

Stamps: Basic Borders (ME); Elzybells
Ink: Bahama Blue, Bamboo Leaves (Memento)
Font: Filbert Color, TW Cen MT Condensed
Other: Frog Die (Provocraft)
Did you ever have a rubber frog which, when you squeezed it, had a long red tongue that unrolled?  My kids did.  Whilst rooting around amongst my dies, this frog came to light, & lo a card was born.
CAS-ual Fridays are challenging us to make a card for a bloke, which uses a ribbon but no kraft, & I think this fits the bill.  Whilst not being overtly masculine, it is certainly not girlie.  Maybe I'll settle on androgynous!
