hello (HLS – Dies)


Hello and welcome

Welcome back to a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers –  Anything Goes with Dies – September.  I hope you’ll join in the fun this month!

My card this month features leaves from Hero Arts  ‘My Creativity in a Box’ May ’18,  dies cut from card coloured with Distress Oxide Inks and with added Distress Inks and clear Wink of Stella.

The Grove Branch die from Memory Box was watercoloured with Distress Inks.

The background was created with Distress Ink smooching and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. So pretty and sparkly IRL!

A circle die Distress Oxide coloured with clear Wink of Stella was glued to the background.  

Then the branch and leaves were added along with the ‘hello’ Memory Box die cut in gold card.

Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!  Good luck with your entries!

Stamping Sensations

Author: momentsofcrafting

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Your fall scene is perfectly serene and beautiful! What a lovely design! I’m so glad you linked up to the DRU “Anything Goes” challenge. Best of luck to you!


  2. It’s a really beautiful Autumnal creation and you have got the colouring of the leaves spot on, although you do not mention stamping them just die cutting and we are a stamping challenge (details on our Stamping Sensations posts).

  3. Helen, your distress (oxide)-coloured leaves look so realistic with their colour gradients! Great use of your supplies to build this little scene.
    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful card in the Uniko Challenge #55.
