It seems lots of people loved scallops and what lovely submissions there were last week!
It's now a new month and once more we have a colour challenge.
For this month our colour choice is
LIME & BLACK
We are delighted to have a new sponsor,
Do check out her range of beautiful images.
My first card uses the leafy accents stamps from Clearly Besotted stamped in black onto Lucky Limeade card stock. I've added a sentiment from PI and punched flowers from Martha Stewart. It's simply finished with a few black pearls.
For my second card I have used one of this weeks new releases from Clearly Besotted Build a Bug, added a couple of googly eyes and some lucky limeade twine and a button from Stampin Up
I have used a stamp from Stephanie's Leafy Accents set, I love the movement in this one. I have paired it with one of her border stamps,it is in fact the opening of Beethoven's 5th Symphony!
I have used some flowers from a Fiskars border punch, to which I added tiny pearls. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Here is another image from the Leafy Accents set, simply stamped and double mounted over a strip of die cut trellis. At the NEC recently, I bought a glue wand which has an applicator like those used for lip gloss and is supposed to be great for adhering fine die-cuts like this, it works reasonably well but I still prefer my method of sticking some double sided tape or sheet to the back of card before cutting the die with my Cuttlebug. The sentiment and its corresponding die are from Stampin' Up.
I will be going to the craft show at Alexandra Palace next Saturday. Hopefully there will be a few LIMettes there and it would be lovely to meet up with any of you who may also be attending!
