Whoop! Happy dancing.

Hello everyone, 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  How are you all doing?

Well my week was a great one and it is certainly ending with a bang!
I am so incredibly lucky and honoured to have been invited to join the Less is More DT.
Whoop! Whoop! 
Still pinching myself as I can't really believe it!

Congratulations to Susan and Sarah who made the LIM DT too.

It's recipe week at Less is More and we'd love to see you feature or use some wire on your cards.

Well, I didn't have much time to think about my first DT entries, so these may be a little predictable, but I so wanted to join in today.
 

Wire Xmas Tree 

For this first one I twisted some silver wire and made it into a scribble Xmas tree shape, threaded on some beads and hot glued it to some card. The mats were hand pricked. Sentiment is from Spellbinders decorative curved star set.
 
I'm entering this one into:
Crafting with Attitude Challenge 12 - Anything Goes
ABC Christmas - D for Don't overdo it
 
 

Bee Happy

For this second card, I stamped the bee image from Inkadinkadoo Morphic Bugs set and coloured with distress pens (scattered straw, squeezed lemonade, wild honey). Added black wire through the back of the card to create the bee antennas, okay it's not a lot of wire, but it is a bit of wire nonetheless. Glossy accents applied to the bee. Sentiment was computer generated.
 
Entering this one into:
Addicted to stamps and more - Make your mark
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
 
 
 

Birthday Balloons

The final card was made by stamping a Magnolia balloon in Pink, Mint and Cinnamon Versacolour ink and fussy cutting it out. The Tattered Lace sentiment was die cut and inked up in the same colours. Wire was attached to the sentiment and balloons. The balloons were raised on 3d pads and the sentiment adhered to the card stock.
 
 
Entering this into Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Colour Throwdown #381 - pink, light green and kraft
 
 
Hope you like these quick makes and that they give you some inspiration for using wire on your CAS cards
 
Thank you so much for looking,
Hugs,
Sharon
