Week 251 Theme

Morning LIMettes are you ready for our theme week?

You certainly had some fun with Santa in every shape and style last week
but you can put all Christmas ideas out of your mind for this one - our theme is

We would like to see numbers, or reference to them in some way!
DO keep your design Clean and Simple with lots of white space!

Here's what we've been up to ...

Here I used a  a collage of numbers background stamp from Kaisercraft, stamped and clear embossed then inked with a variety of Distress Inks. The sentiment from Winnie and Walter was triple layered and mounted over the stitched tag die!


This one's for my daughter's friend so she quickly sifted through my sets looking for words and phrases to describe her friend! I love the 'You're a Good Egg' and 'You Crack me Up' from Mama Elephant: Just Hatched. The others are taken from various Uniko Studio and Clearly Besotted sets.
 The words are stamped using a sticky pigment ink then heat embossed in clear EP to add some shine! The sparkly '18' die-cut is from Avery Elle then inlaid  into a stitched circle from Simon Says Stamp. To finish I've scored a few lines above and below the panel then added some sparkly gems from my stash.

I stamped five balloons in blue shades and die cut with their co-ordinating dies, these from Clearly Besotted's Make a Wish set.  I then positioned them roughly where I wanted them and marked under each one with a pencil.  Further down the card I marked a central point then drew in the 'strings' with a fineliner pen.  The balloons where then adhered in place and the sentiment from Paper Smooches' Birthday Sampler set was stamped onto a panel, die cut using a stitched rectangle die by MFT.

My numbers card was a bit of an ageist dig for a good friend.  The Crazy Bird was coloured with Copics and given bulgy Glossy Accents eyes.  The splats are MFT stamps and the text computer generated.

We hope you enjoy this one and look forward to seeing what you
come up with! Don't forget to visit some of your fellow LIMettes too
