It's always lovely to hear when two people you know are perfect for each other,  are going to tie the knot!! We went to their engagement party on the weekend and it was fabulous!! I was in charge of the card.  After my major clean up of the craft room.... I did find way too much stuff that I haven't used and my new motto is to USE it!!  I found these gorgeous Heidi Swapp letters and as luck would have it..... I had the happy couple's initials!! Lol quick MS score board and a sentiment later and voila! Going to join in some local challenges for this one! CASE study has the lovely Jaclyn Miller as their Muse and I love the "love" theme!  and one of my favourite stamps challenge blogs (awesome DT)  Annabelle Stamp Blog which have the perfect sketch!

Here is MY take on the challenge......

I recently discovered Gelatos....LOL I am really enjoying this mixed media so STAY TUNED for my NEW FIX!!  I have armed myself with GESSO, gelatos and masks!!
Not really comfortable with messy, It took a while for me to get my head around it all!  I like ORGANIZED messy! Symmetrical, even and balanced is more my style.
Playing around with the gelatos is like going back to kindergarten!  Scribble to your heart's content and then spray with water or perfect pearls to create a kaleidoscope of  stunning patterns and colours.  I have a few LO's using this technique coming soon.
With my card today, I used a gloss cardstock (ooopsie I forgot to link it below) and embossed with white powder my HA background stamp, Hipster Circles( any patterned stamp will do.)
I then went crazy with colour using the gelatos and sprayed with perfect pearls. The embossed background resists some of the colour, allowing the pattern to show through.  I die cut the Memory Box Oak Tree and I really love the effect!
I hope you are enjoying the school holidays (if you're having them!)
Happy Crafting!

Thanks for popping in and now head on off to

Happy Birthday Let's Celebrate

Hello! I really like the OLC (one layer card) Quick and easy ( well for most people..... I do agonize over EVERY detail lol) Well my new favourite stamps (this month anyway) are shapes.Triangles and circles are popular at the moment and I am loving them being used repetitively, makes for some really fabulous patterns. I have made a heap using MFT Trendy Triangles and mixed with the HA Neon (♥)
Scrapbook Boutique have all the products used for this card along with the instructions too.  I am going to join in with Dynamic Duos #96 Gumball Green and Your Choice ....What is that saying.... Blue and Green should never be seen?!? WHAT THE! I love this combination!
