LIM: Touchables

There is a new challenge at
and it is to make something
Imagine the possibilities!
Here is my card:

I cut the peacock with a die by Ellentina
from some glittery fun foam and
layered it on a label cut with die by SB.
I added a teal gem for an eye and used a corner rounder
and some dimensional tape.
This is certainly "touchable" and
really glitters IRL.
Be sure to check out the LIM site:
for lots of nifty ideas and samples.

LIM 285 Wine A Bit

A new challenge at
This week we are to make art using
Below is my work:
I began with a die by SB
"Fancy Tags" that I stamped the verse by
Art Impressions.
Then I cut some designer paper by
Prima "Fairy Flora" into a strip
which I threaded onto my tag
after I sponged some ink around edges.
When I had that centered I marked the
edge and stamped several bottles
by Bad Axe Trading Co.
I figured I had better quit before I
did too much and ruined that
"white" I tend to do!
Check out the 
site to see the lovely samples over there!

LIM284 "Take Time"

This week's challenge over at
is a one layer card with a "time" theme.
OLCs are so not my faves but I try.
I wanted to use something other than
clocks as it seems most think of these
with this sort of challenge.
So I went with a stencil by 
memorybox "Texture Shine"
I masked off some to keep that desired
white space and sponged Distress inks
"Mustard Seed" and "Spiced Marmalade".
The verse stamp is by MFP and those
tiny speckles are a stamp by Judith
(to hide a smudge of course).
Be sure to check out

to see all the nifty ideas there!

LIM#283 Kitchen Colors

A new challenge over at
This week is to make a CAS card using your 
kitchen colors.  Below is my card:
I paper pieced the little giraffe image
(by Art Impressions)
with some dp by DCWV "Safari Chic"
and sponged some Distress inks for a quick scene.
I popped the stitched frame 
(by Simon Says Stamp) after
inking the verse (by Stampendous).
I added a small flower for a sun to hide an oops.
It sort of looks like a sun?

And below is a pic of my kitchen and the colors.
You see the pottery on cab tops is from
New Mexico (the blues and greens),  walls are yellow and cabs are brown

LIM 282 Stencils

I was playing with a new purchase and see the
current challenge over at 
is stencils.  Yes!

I taped down a stencil by Tim Holtz
onto black cardstock panel and
applied some gold glitter paste
by Bo Bunny
(this stuff dries amazingly quick)
I layered that on some gold mirror card and then onto
more black.  I cut some shapes by 
The Paper Cut and adhered another diecut
by memorybox "thanks"
I went a bit overboard to be totally
CAS but I liked the results and they did
(sort of) fit the challenge so
that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

LIM 281 Faux Bleach

I tried the faux bleach tech with some Yupo paper and find that it does not 
like to be heat embossed.  It crinkled on me so I trimmed
out the wrinklies and ended up with a slim strip....
I used dye reindeers for the color and it seems to have
"bleached" out most of it.
Dragonfly stamp is by Magenta
word die is by Taylored Expressions
I fussy cut an extra dragonfly and popped
him up so you can see how he looked
before ironing off most color.
I am not too happy with my results
but I have not got time to re-do
so here it is.
Be sure to stop by the
site to see the wonderful
creations everyone (except me) has posted!
