Thanks so much to Dies R US Challenge for selecting my card as one of the Top 3.  Challenge #144 Winners and Top Three  

Top Three Badge

Hello and welcome

It’s time for a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers –  Anything Goes with Dies – March.   As always, anything goes in this challenge. So, I hope you’ll find time in  your busy life to join in the fun this month!

Today’s fun card features a cute tiger image form MFT – Sunshine & Friendship stamp set.

After stamping and watercolouring, the image was fussy cut and had WInk of Stella and Glossy Accents added to the swim ring.

The circles were cut using MFT – A2 Stitched Circle STAX (cut 4).  From one the SS Stamps Stitched circle was cut to form a circle frame.

On the base card, clouds were inked using MFT – Cloud stencil on the top section and then ink blended in a darker blue towards the bottom.

2 sections of the smaller die from MFT – Making Waves die was cut from vellum. The top of one had a little ink along the top edge.

On a scrap of card, Distress Inks were smooched.  When dry, 5 of the small trailing leaf die was cut (MFR – Leaf Greenery die).

It was then only a matter of assembly.  First, the 2 layers of vellum along the bottom. Then the trailing leaves were added along the side.

Then the circle frame was added to the front, and one of the circles added to the back.

The last circle had the top removed and then added to the bottom on the back to form a pocket for a gift card.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and attached with raised tape along the bottom.  The other sentiment was added to the back.

Lastly, the tiger was added with raised tape to the front.

I love the idea of having a fun way to give a gift card.

Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a good day and stay safe

Cheers

Helen

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.
