SHC - Hugs ....

.... Hi! How's everyone coping with staying in their homes? I find it's wonderful to have us all together, but at times can be quite stressful. I have two ways to cope - I go out for a daily walk and I play in my craft room. It's fun making cards and I love mixing products from different companies. I'm here today with a couple of cards for my Seven Hills Craft blog post:

Stamps: Hero Arts - Zest Wishes; Waffle Flower - Simply Said 1
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Gina K - Wild Wisteria
Dies: Waffle Flower - Simply Said 1 Die
Accessories: White Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Black, Highland Heather; Clear Embossing Powder, Copic Markers; Sakura Stardust Pens; Nuvo - Clear Aquashimmer Brush

I'm playing along with Perfectly CAS - PCAS#07 where they want us to use die cuts, and with Time Out Challenge - TOC#158 where they want lots or a little purple, I have a little purple.

I stamped the lemon and flower images on white card, coloured them with Copic markers, restamped with Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed with clear powder. I used Sakura Stardust pens to add lots of sparkly dots to the background. I also used a clear aqua shimmer brush to add sparkle to the lemons. I adhered the panel to the bottom third of the card and added a thin strip of black card. I stamped the word hugs in wisteria ink and used the matching die to cut it out. I also die cut three plain hugs, adhered the stamped word on top of the others to create dimension. On the inside, I cut a strip of lilac card and on the white panel added a greeting and a little flower.

My next card is very clean and simple, in fact I made it for the current challenge at Less is More - LIM#416 where they want a one layer card with no sentiment. I'd finished the card and then got black ink on the edges, so not playing along with them this week!! However, I liked the image and decided to cut it out and mount it on a clean white card:

Stamps: Altenew - Botanical Garden, Geo Frames
Inks: Gina K - Black Amalgam; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Card; Copic Markers; Nuvo - Clear Aquashimmer Brush; Clear Embossing Powder

I stamped the frame in the centre of the card. I masked off the bottom edge of the frame and then stamped the flower and butterfly inside the frame. I coloured the iamges with Copic markers, restamped and heat embossed with clear powder. I added a touch of sparkle and called it done. Then I got ink on the card. So I cut out the panel and adhered it to a new card base. I used the colours from the current Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#490. I left the inside of the card blank for my own message.

It's lots of fun mixing up stamps from different companies. Why not pop over to Seven Hills Craft shop to check out what they have in store? That's all from me today, see you soon.

Beautiful that little hint of purple! It suits the lime/yellow so beautiful! And a beautiful CAS-card! Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!

Your card is so pretty. Love those traditional lemons, so fresh looking, and the purple sentiment is such an unexpected pairing. I always forget how well purple and yellow match together. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

Beautiful job of shading on the lemons. Great job with the "dots" for the background. It's so super fun. Thanks for joining us at Perfectly CAS.
