A Groovy Birthday Card

Sue is our Host at Just Us Girls 
and chose a lovely and popular combination
 for our Colour week 
Instead of inking up pretty flowers I went with
inking up a new AALL&Create Stencil

Simply stenciled three stencils in red and black,
added a sprinkle of red embossing powder
on the black, splatters, sentiment is
heat embossed with both colours.
Adhered to white card base and that's a wrap!
Of course our Guest Mac Mable and the Team
have made spectacular cards in this weeks colours
so head over and check them all out.
Come join in with yours and you could be
Chic of the Week and be our Guest in June!

So Incredably 'Precious'

 The heading says it all for the card I made for
our New Challenge over at
I knew what I was going to make as soon as I saw
Sistah Lia chose Slimline Cards.

I don't make many of the large traditional size but
my thistle die is a biggie!
I went with a Mixed Media type of card.
Lindy's Witch's Potion Purple and
Freak Franklin Lime Magical's were used on my Thistle
and  Tim's Faded Jeans oxide ink
on my background as the Scottish flag
is Blue and White.
Added stencilling and stamping
from Visible Image and AALL&Create
and a whitewash to tone it down.
 Kaisercraft Weathered Texture Die
backing my Thistle.
Inked my perfect sentiment 
as a Thistle is to me So Precious.
Tore the edges inked and
adhered to purple ribbon.
Hand drawn squiggles around the edges
adding to white card base.

Here is a close up highlighting the colours better.

Have you checked out what my Sistah's created?
Head over and check them out Here.
We'd love to see your Slimline creation in our Gallery.
PS - it doesn't have to be the Traditional Size
So go for it!

A 'Tartan' Christmas Wish

 Time for our New Challenge at
and the theme is right up my alley.

A very CAS card using tartan background to 
highlight some holiday greens fromTim Holtz
 sprinkled with snow. Added bells and a pearl,
tied some twine and added to a black frame
onto white card base. 
Head over and see what the Team created
and come join us in the Gallery.
