Today I'm thrilled to be sharing some exciting news with you!
After spending a few weeks guest designing with the lovely ladies at Less is More I have been asked to become a permanent member of their Design Team...woohooo!!!
When Chrissie asked me I didn't hesitate to say yes. Less is More is one of my favourite challenge blogs and one that I've tried to enter most weeks since I discovered the world of craft blogs and challenges so I'm absolutely delighted to be joining their little team. I only hope I can match their standard each week and provide you with some inspiration. Thanks so much Chrissie, Sarah and Anne for having me! xx
So, on to this week's challenge. We are back with a Recipe challenge and we would like you to
Use some metal
Here are my DT cards to hopefully inspire you...
I stamped the tree from Clearly Besotted's Joy to the World set in Neptune Versa Color ink and heat embossed with some embossing powder by All Night Media called Crystal Sparkle. The blue frame is actually white cardstock, inked around the edges and heat embossed the same way to match. I added a silver star brad to the top of the tree and the sentiment is a metal bar embellishment which has an eyelet fastener on the back. These metal embellies have been in my stash for years.
The dotted glitter cardstock is called Sherbert Pips by Kanban and is die cut using a pierced square by MFT Die-namics, as is the small white square. Then, using some textured paper I layered it up to create a baby's nappy, using a circular die to cut the leg holes and folded the layers around and secured them at the back. A small safety pin finished it off. I then stamped the simple sentiment from Clearly Besotted's Little Onesie set.
I really struggle with masculine cards so I'm really pleased with this one. On a strip of dark grey cardstock I used translucent embossing paste through a metal effect stencil by Dutch Doobadoo. Once dry I added a hammer charm/brad (from my stash) to some co-ordinating grosgrain ribbon and wrapped this around, securing on the back. This was then mounted on a strip of lighter grey cardstock and a simple sentiment was stamped to finish, this from Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches.
I'd like to link this last card at the following challenges:
