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.

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)

LIM #273 It's A Dragon!

Another challenge over at
This week is #273 and the theme is saints and dragons 
I heat embossed a dragon image by
Judi-Kins and stamped a verse by
Lawn Fawn that seemed (to me)
to go with it well.

LIM Challenge #272 "Graffiti"

The challenge this week over at
is #272 and the theme is to use a stamp 3 times
or use 3 stamps.
I have stamped an image by Hero Arts
"Brush Strokes"
3 times by sponging various Memento inks
directly on the stamp.  I also 
used the word stamp by HA too....
does that disqualify my card?

lovely entries!

Simon Says Challenge

Another challenge!  Its the 
"Anything Goes Birthday"
over at

     Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
I used a ProvoCraft folder with a stamp by
Stampourri that I double cut and popped to fit
all the "stuff" inside.
Dies by Tim Holtz and color by Copic
I love those rascal birds!!
*when you have a birthday in
April it calls for an umbrella doesn't it?*


This week over at
the challenge is on for a
one layer card with geometric shapes.
I inked the shape stamp by MFT
with a Kpad "Desert Heat"
As that pad is a dye ink I first inked the stamp with my 
Versamark pad and then the dye pad so I could
heat emboss (thus did not have to dig for
a pigment pad).
The word stamps (by Technique Tuesday)
were stamped the same way.
I added a few gems to perk it up a bit.
Very simple, very OLC and (I hope)
very adequate white space?

Unwhite Spaces

A simple CAS card made for an upcoming
birthday that will tie into the
current challenge over at
that is

This one calls for white space that isn't white
and my card has plenty of it I think.

color by Tim Holtz Distress Crayons
I add a "glow" behind the flames to cover up an oops
