Fun Challenges!

There are a few challenges out there this month that is right along with my CAS style. I had to join in~

My first card is for Happy Little Stampers August CAS Challenge with masking.  I also entered this into Virgina's August Challenge #17; embellishments.

I don't normally do masking - I don't have the patience.  However, using sentiment to mask over is pretty easy.  I love easy.  I used Inspired By Stamping Water Colored Sentiments, along with Flower of the Month; Poppies.

Since I'm at HLS, I decided to go ahead and join in the Christmas Challenge; Sparkle

I sponged my background, added some stenciled embossing paste and sprinkled glitter on it before it dried.  My sentiment is from a freebie Verve put out about 3 years ago, and the mittens are Spellbinders.


I absolutely adore this image!  By coloring the eyes green, this image just pops off the card!  It also extremely qualifies for the LIM challenge. Yay me!  This image is from Innovative Stamp Creations; Friendship and Foliage.

Another fun challenge day~


Thanks for stopping by~

Wonderful makes, Vicki. A fab idea to mask your sentiment, it looks great amongst your stems. And I can see why you adore that last image, it's beautiful. Perfectly CAS and ideal for our challenge.

What a trio of wonderful cards. Thanks for entering #2 in the HLS Christmas Challenge Sparkle. The glitter on these circles really does shine against the bright colors on this background, as does the entire design. Love the tiny embossed mittens tucked over it all, and the little candees added for perfect embellishments. TFS
