This gorgeous set of dies from STAMPlorations (CUTplorations Flutter Zen 1) is so perfect for so many things. Sadly, I am in need of a sympathy card for a friend who lost her son. The colors are inspired by this week's Less Is More Challenge. The gray and the yellow are a wonderful juxtaposition that makes me think of the feelings of sadness and hope. This seems to be very fitting for a situation in which there are just no words...

My take is a Mother's Day card for my sister. I went with Hannelie's colors over a white embossed panel cut with a stitched square die, and split to add part of the sentiment. Inside sentiment: Happy Mother's Day.
Please head on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog and check out the wonderful inspiration from the DT, see where Hannelie's design takes you, link up, and play with us at Time Out.
The May Christmas Challenge is up at Happy Little Stampers, and this time the "twist" is masking. I did the twist, and here is what I came up with. I masked the panel on the left on Bristol Paper, embossed the (Happy Little Stampers) poinsettia images with white EP and colored them with Zigs. "Merry" is die cut, stacked and inlaid. I really love the way this one turned out.
Do go over to the Happy Little Stampers May Christmas Challenge, check out the wonderful DT creations for some inspiration. Stay on top of your Christmas card-making by entering your Christmas creation, with or without the twist, in the HLS May Christmas gallery.
