Ranger & Dreamweaver

Ranger has a fun challenge here that involves using Dreamweaver Stencils, Distress Embossing Powder and Double Sided Mounting Paper.
I have a few stencils but I have only 3 colours of Distress Embossing Powder, so it made it hard to pick an appropriate stencil that works with  browns and a green so I sneaked in a blue Ranger Embossing Powder to complete the look  : )

Here's a close up of the embossing against the white glitter background.
For more info on how to do this technique drop by the Dreamweaver blog here and don't forget to enter the Ranger Challenge here.

Kraft On

I have a couple of cards to share with you today. The first one is for CAS-ual Fridays Kraft On Challenge.
Kraft On
I punched out a bunch of butterflies from kraft card stock and adhered it to a kraft card base. For the coloured butterflies I inked up some glossy card stock with alcohol inks in shades of blue and added a bit of shimmer with some mixatives and the sentiment was stamped on vellum.

My next card is for the Simon Says Autumn Leaves Challenge.
This card has a white card base with a white vellum overlay that is attached to the card base with just the twine. The leaves were inked with Distress Inks and stamped onto the vellum and I used a die to emboss a frame around the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting!

Daisies Over the Edge

One more card for CAS-ual Fridays Over the Edge Challenge.

I was finally able to get my hands on the Fresh Daisies die from Simon Says and decided to use it inlaid on the card, makes it easy for sending in the mail as there is no added bulk.
Also, just as I did on yesterdays card I trimmed the width of the card so that with the flower overhang it still fits into a standard envelope.

I'm also entering this at A Blog Named Hero for their CAS challenge.
