Merry Muse

Dies: Small Circle Burst, Alphabet Soup (Memory Box)
Font:  Bookman Old Style Bold Italic
Inspired by Marion Vagg at Muse this week, I chose to concentrate on the large grey sentiment & the sun rays.  This MB die is the closest I possess to sun rays & I nearly lost my sanity fitting all those tiny dots; not to be undertaken lightly!
 
 The alphabet soup letters are cute but terribly hard to handle & line up - as you can see.
 
Apologies for the more-dreadfull-than-usual phot, had to use my tablet as the camera has had a nasty accident.

Less is More ~ Use 2

Stamps: Be Jolly, Jolly Wishes (Technique Tuesday)
Ink: Soft Pool (HA); Golden Glitz (Delicata)
Hi there.  Long time no blog.  No reason, just doin' other stuff. But today the planets are all in alignment, the sun is shining & the mojo is back.
Less is More want 2 of something on a card this week, but only one layer. I've got 2 baubles, 2 colours & used 2 stamp sets.  Tried for a long time to get red on here as well, before realising that gold & aqua get along just fine together without a third party interfering!

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.
