Challenge Winning cards

Thursday, May 20, 2021


 So today I had a day off work and as the weather has been dreadful, I played with some unused stash...

Some time last year I won a blog challenge and the prize was a voucher for Clearly Besotted. Now I'm not a natural rubber stamper but their images were so cute I couldn't resist the Mix It Up set with matching dies.

Today they had their first inking!

I'm not a confident stamper but I find using Tim Holtz's Stamp Platform greatly helps!

What I used:

Stamps - Clearly Besotted - Mix it Up (with matching dies)

Coloured with - Spectrum Noir markers

Patterned striped paper - The Range

Circle dies - Spellbinders nesties

Die sentiment - Paper Smooches

Embellishments - flat-backed pearls - The Range

Perfect for a girly birthday!

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Stinkin' Inkers - Girls just wanna have fun

Aud Sentiments #275 - for the girls (with sentiment) 

Passion For Markers #592 - use spots or stripes WINNER

Addicted to Stamps #405 - dies or stencils

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - use die/punches

Thanks for popping in
