LIM/MIM For My Friend


Hi Everyone!!  I really liked this week's SCS Sketch challenge (which strangely enough resembles the Featured Stamper card I made?!) and after thinking about it for a while, I thought this would also be fabulous to use for the Dirty Dozen Less Is More/More Is More (LIM/MIM - only accessible to Fan Club Members) challenge too!!!  So I've combined these challenges to create two cards today!!!  :) 

I started with the LIM card, using this week's Sketch.  A base of Very Vanilla, layered with Close to Cocoa, Pale Pink Bazzill and more Vanilla.  The three vertical strips are more Cocoa embossed with the Jemara EF and then added some pink satin ribbon across the middle.  The feature panel has been stamped with Plant a Little Love (new release by JustRite Stampers), coloured with markers and then added the sentiment from Elegant Cheer (SU) and cut out with Label 6 Nestabilities and popped the panel up on foam tape.

My MIM card has the same Vanilla base, Cocoa and pink and then I embossed the next Vanilla layer with the Jemara EF.  Instead of rectangles I made the Cocoa strips using the Fancy Tags and attached the pink satin ribbon as above.  This time I stamped the roses from Plant a Little Love, coloured and cut them out with scissors and popped them up on the Label 6 die cut that has also been stamped with the same sentiment.  To finish I added a pink satin bow to the side and some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the tag panels.

Stamps - Plant a Little Love (JustRite), Elegant Cheer (SU)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Pale Pink Bazzill
Ink - Jet Black Stazon, Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Markers, Blender Pen, Label 6 Nestabilities, Fancy Tags, 1" and 1/2" pink satin ribbon, Bow Easy, Jemara EF, Kasiercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
