Happy Birthday

It's time for a new challenge at Less Is More. This time the theme is: Metallics. Just remember that there must be lots of clean white space on your card.

Our wonderful sponsor for the month of August is Funky Fossil Designs. The shop's owner, Sarah Gray, is a wonderful artist and former Desigh Team Member of Less Is More! Check out Sarah's Folksy shop for a wonderful selection of stencils, cards and gifts. Your creative juices are sure to flow. Play with us for a chance to win some fabulous stencils from Sara's store.

For my first card, I masked some space toward the bottom of the card base and randomly stamped the gears from Stampendous Guys and Gears stamp set using Delicata Golden Glitz, Silvery Shimmer and Celestial Copper metallic inks. I removed the masks and added a strip of gold foiled cardstock to the top and bottom of the stamped area. I added a sentiment from the same stamp set and my card was complete.

I entering my first card in the following challenges:

Addicted To Stamps and More #356 - Anything Goes

Fusion Challenge - Sketch only

For my second card, I used Bo Bunny silver and gold glitter paste with the Winnie and Walter Scenery: Big Bang Classic Star Creative Screenings stencil, and added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Seeing Stars Stamp set.

I'm entering my second card into the following challenges:
