I've missed a couple of challenges at Less is More and I'm happy to be back! A little over a week ago, I came down with a very nasty stomach bug. I lost 12 pounds in 3 days...DEFINITELY NOT a diet I'd recommend! I was so sick I didn't do anything for almost a full week!!
So....it's good to be back. I see that I've had a couple of my recent cards showCASed at Less is More...and I want to say a BIG thank you to Chrissie and Jen!! Having my hand drawn piano card from week 106 (music theme) and my heartfelt thanks card from week 105 (Kraft and Kreme) showCASed really made me happy!
My cards this week also fit the challenge at CASology...which is to use circles.
Since I got such a late start this week, I only have two little cards to share...so off we go...
No stamping on either of these cards. I actually made both cards with these little circle images that I've had in my "someday" bin for a year or more. The images were some freebies from Papertrey Ink that I'd downloaded, printed out, and punched...thinking....I'll use these one day. Well, today's the day! I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, then added a little blue background with a Copic marker. I cut a 5 x 3.75 white panel, decided where the circle would go, then pierced a circle outline. I popped the circle in the center of the paper piercing, then backed the white panel with a piece of bright blue....super simple card.
For this card, I used another of the PTI images from my "someday" bin. I colored the image with Copics and added just a touch of sparkle with the Sakura clear star pen and a couple of small pieces of bling to the center of each pinwheel. I embossed a panel with the zigzag embossing folder, then punched out a circle (about 2.5 inches) from the right side. Then I trimmed off part of the embossed panel so that my circle embellishment would fit nicely in the cut out. I pierced a circle around the outside of the image piece and adhered it with pop dots. The embossed panel is adhered directly to the blue card base. I added a white liner on the inside to stamp the sentiment on.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...
