Less Is More, Hero Arts & Coffee

I was inspired by the Less Is More Challenge #227; sunset.  It's been ages since I played in this fun challenge.  (I am having so much fun playing in challenges again)

I made a full panel of my sunset, and then cut it into a smaller panel -- gotta show the white with this challenge~ ;).  My sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping; Watercolor Sentiments.  With my MISTI, it is so easy to get a solid stamped sentiment. I do love this tool.

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I went on to play in the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop again.  However, this time I also created my card to go in the Hero Arts June Challenge; Tic Tac Toe.  

I used the left side of the board; water coloring, background stamp, and circles.  I used Hero Arts Tiny Flags along with A Little.  I am also adding this into a new to me challenge; Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers; V is for Vellum.

Hope you all had a crafty week end~

Glad you found the Snarky Sisters, Vicki, and hope you'll make us a regular stop! I am in love with the sunset on your first card — such a wow with the bold sentiment (and just the right amount of white space, of course). ;) The colours of your second card are perfect for summer! The embossed sentiment on vellum looks terrific. Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
