LIM - Balloons/ ATCAS - Wish/ ATSM - Make Your Mark

Hello and happy Tuesday(or Wednesday :))!

Today I have three cards to share with you. 
It's been long since I played along at Less is More challenge last time. This week I'm trying to join in my favorite challenges again. The recipe at Less is More #313 (Balloons) gave me a chance to use this adorable stamp by Penny Black, which I purchased a while back but haven't used yet. 

I stamped the doggy with a balloon in black Memento ink on a white card stock and colored it using Copic markers. The doggy was colored after the favorite fluffy doggy of my daughter. And pink is her favorite color :). The sentiment in black is from Clearly Besotted. I cut out the middle part of the panel to show the cloudy sky on the card base, which I made by blending some blue DIs on a cloud mask. For more shine I added Shimmer Pico on the balloon and the nose of the doggy. I finished off the card with two enamel dots. 

Next two cards were made after watching some of video tutorials by Kelly Latevola. I love her colorful and bold style and the dimension she creates on her one layer card.
The stamp is Flower Cascade by Penny Black.

This card is a one layer card in Kelly's style. I created the background after masking the image by blending DIs in rainbow colors and adding splatters of clear water and white ink. Coloring was done with Copic markers. I added gray shades along the outlines and some white accents here and there using a white gel pen. The sentiment from Penny Black was stamped in black pigment ink and clear heat embossed. I added white outline to it. The flowers got a coat of Wink of Stella.

The last card is for the Addicted to CAS #103: WISH.

The flower cascade was done like the previous card. But for a CAS look I cut out the image and foam mounted it on a white card base. I then took a circle sentiment from SimonSaysStamp and stamped it three times in ombre gray shades. The die cut wishing is also from SSS. I cut it out from a piece of white cardstock on which I blended DIs in rainbow colors. I cut a same sentiment from a yellow fun foam to add it under my die cut sentiment for some dimension.

I'm happy with how they turned out. I want to say thank you to Kelly for her fabulous video tutorials!!!

I want to enter my second card into Addicted to Stamps and More #227: Make Your Mark and the last one into SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.


Thank you for stopping by!!!
Big Hugs,

Three fantastic cards for these challenges TaeEun. I love the cute dog sailing on the end of the balloon and the two panels with the cloudy sky in the middle works beautifully. The two floral cards are so prettily coloured, and the first with the rainbow colours and the water spattering is so vibrant and draws the eye, then the second with the multicoloured sentiment and semi circular sentiment design radiating from the corner is another cleverly thought out idea and perfect for the challenge. x

I'm so used to seeing gorgeous, floral cards on your blog that the first card was a lovely surprise! Of course, in your usual stunning way, the dog/balloon card is beautifully coloured, as are all of these cards, but still, a pleasant surprise that instantly brought a smile to my face.

Some very gorgeous cards here! The vibrancy of those flowers is really amazing. Love how adorable your little doggie with the balloon is. I think the layout with the recessed panel in the middle is superb as it conveys a sense of movement and your sky is just lush. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
