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!

LIM 277 Theme: something that POPS!

My card has something that pops since I use the candles that fizz and pop!
I hope that links with this challenge theme over at
My candle panel was begun with watercolor paper and
watercolors.  Candles were fussy cut and a metal birthday hat
was added with an eyelet.  The panel was cut with deckle scissors and layered 
over cream cardstock.
The verse is by MFP "Happy Pansies" and image by embossing arts.
Be sure to stop by Less Is More to check out all the
nifty works of art!

LIM #275 Pastel Challenge

A new challenge over at 
This week is a color challenge and this one
calls for pastels.
I began with a pre-cut card shape, sponging pale pink
all over.  Embossed images in
white and then sponged more pink 
behind words.
Some ribbon from Reasonable Ribbon and
it was finished.
Stamps were UMs without a name.
Be sure to check out the many ideas and samples
(and perhaps upload one of your own creations)

to go with it well.
