Today I'm working on a card for this weeks Less is More challenge
to make a one layer card and include splatters.
Here's what I came up with:
and the inside:
I don't know how you feel, but I like a little more weight to my cards...
so I trimmed this down a little and matted it on green , then layered it to a white card base. I like it better and it feels better when you hold it in your hand.

Bottle Tags

April showers bring may flowers...however, it still makes for some dark and dreary days.
so to brighten my mood I've been making wine bottle tags.
Notice the bottle has not been opened. We'll save that for later! :)
I had watched a video on double partial die cutting and wanted to give it a try.
You can watch it HERE.
A fun technique. I did die cut the word cheers again separately
and layered it over the original for a little more dimension.
Here's three of three of the ones I did:

Predominantly Black

Check out Less is More, this week's challenge
is to make a card that is predominantly black.
I LOVE black and white!

I used a die from Simon Says Stamp called Ring Frame
and the sentiment came from a Simon Says Stamp set
called Furry Cat & Box.

The butterfly was cut using my silhouette.
Quite a while ago I cut a bunch of these in all different sizes,
because, well, you just never know when you'll need a black butterfly! LOL!
It's hard to see, but there is a solid butterfly on the bottom and the top butterfly has
lacy wings and I sprinkled her ( yes I'm sure she's a girl!) with doodlebug's
black sugar coating which is a super fine glitter.
The top butterfly is only attached in the center so that the wings
are dimensional.
Thanks for stopping by.
