Just Us Girls 'Word Week'

Hello and Welcome to our May Challenges for
As we begin our month we start with a
New Guest Designer. Welcome to
Deborah Frings from
Our Host this week is Nancy and chose a 
most appropriate word which at this trying time -
we all have them.
I know the Gallery will be full of wonderful
creations supporting all those incredible 
essential service people in a variety of ways.

I made my card really simple by using
this free image from
 adding dp embossed with Geometric
 by We R Memory Keepers for the background
and die cut a MFT stitched circle.
  Cut and punched lots of pretty flowers and leaves
then finished with some bling in the centres.
Pop over and see how Deborah and the Team
chose to say Thank You to a Hero.
Come join us in our Gallery.
Thanks for coming by -

Mixed Up Masking

Time for the new Challenge over at
Mix It Up and this month our
Anything Goes Option is - Masking
So many ways to go about this technique
but I decided to mask either side and go with
showcasing my Mix of Flowers.

Those that frequent my blog know how much I love
to play with my Lindy's Magical's and they do make
amazing backgrounds.

See what I mean!

On to my layers of flowers.
First up I stenciled Tim Holtz Wild Flower 
with Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy 
which didn't impress me much so
inked up one of the flowers with VersaClair Fallen Leaves
and heat embossed clear slightly to the side.
I then smooched more flowers and die cut adding on top.
All three layers are from Tim's Wild Flowers -
stencil, stamps and dies.
Threw on some splatters left over on my mat.
Inked my sentiment from Woodware Gone to Seed
with the Fallen Leaves then ran a pen down both sides 
of my masking. 
Attached to purple card stock.
(How hard it is to get a good colour photo wise)

After I made this card I had second thoughts about
the masking technique
and made another in the more traditional style.
Again I used Magical's with Twinkling H2O
and Nuvo Drops on my masked flowers which are
STAMPlorations Bloom Doodles
Sentiment is from Bloomful inked in
SU Calypso Coral and Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn.
Lightly smooched background.
I thought the sentiment perfect for this trying time.

That's my Designer's Makes for this month at
DT Badge

chose to inspire you and come join in the fun.
Love to see you in our Gallery this month.

Who's waiting for SPRING?

Today's post is for the May Stencil Challenge at
Hello and Welcome.

This was a simple process. I used the
shaving cream technique through the
with SU re-inkers in Mossy Meadow and Calypso Coral,
Once dry I sprayed with a mix of Perfect Pearls.
Attached this to a cardboard back for stability
which by the way is the same size as the stencil.
Scored and inked around the edges
Added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the circles
and finished with one of the
and tied with some lace from my stash.

Live - Laugh - Love

Time just seems to be flying by and it is already May!
Our Watercolor Challenge for Happy Little Stampers
is now Live!

I took the easy way out here after finding the above piece
already made up in my bit box and simply attached it to 
my optional embossed background gently inked in grey.
Unfortunately I didn't think to add any details to the back
for the future (which is now) so will try and do that
from now on.

Pop over and see what's in store from the 
Talented Designers and come join in the fun this month.
Look forward to seeing you there.
