Allsorts #680

 Anything Goes with a stamped image at ALLSORTS #680.  Brenda is host for this week and the challenge prizes are a Gift voucher to Stamp Addicts and a stencil.  

My first design team card used a House Mouse image stamped on watercolor paper and water colored with Distress inks. I used some fun papers from My Favorite Things as background and Gina K oval dies.  The hooray is a mini stamp & die set from Altenew and HB a preprinted strip sentiment.

The other card used a stamped and heat embossed sentiment. The background was created by using ink direct to the Gina K Designs Tapestry embossing folder in Light Spruce, Powder Blue and Lovely Lavender inks. Some gold thread and confetti add more shine. I also embossed the tab of the mini-slim envelope. 

Hope you will join challenge #680 at Allsorts this week!


  1. Such a fun and colourful HM card Dena, perfect for your theme. The other is a great example of colouring a stencil to effect.

  2. A cute card and a great background - I must remember to try a split background as it is so effective. Great use of the EF for your second card.

  3. 2 fab cards Dena - love the fun HM image on the first one, and the embossed and inked background on the second one is so delicate and pretty.

  6. Two fabulous cards, Dena. Love that cute House Mouse and the papers are a perfect choice! So fun! And gorgeous embossing on the second card with these pretty colors! Such a great idea to ink up the folder directly!
