Hello, my friend (HLS Dies)

Hello and welcome

We’re back after a break with the first challenge over at Happy Little Stampers –  Anything Goes with Dies – January.   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!

My card uses a new to me die – Altnew – Leaf Canopy.

Using Altnew inks I blended colour on a panel of card, then added a little Cosmic Shimmer – Pixie Powder – Plum Twist before spraying with water.

Once dry, the leaves were die cut along with the Altnew ‘Hello” die (another new one for me!) There is a lovely shimmer, but it just doesn’t photograph well and looks more like dark spots!

The background was created with grey card die cut with Altnew Layered Medallions Cover Die B.

Altnew Layered Plaid Cover Die A from silver cardstock.

These were layered over a light grey speckled card and then onto the card front.

The leaves and hello were then layered on top, along with the ‘my friend’ (a favourite from Everyday Greeting from There She Goes Stamps), sentiment stamped on a scrap of pink card using grey ink.

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 month!

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

Have a good day, stay safe and wishing you a very Happy New Year!

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.
