Sweet Stampin' - white on white

**My second post for today - if you popped in for the Sugar Nellie hop, click here or scroll down**

I'm back with my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge this week is 'white on white' or WoW.  We have 2 sponsors for this week - Letraset and our lovely teamie Natali's store Iva Nova Chest, and also our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen.

Now, do you remember me saying the other day, how happy I was on all my teams and how I loved every minute in the craft room... well that doesn't apply to this card lol!  I love WoW cards when other people make them, but I really am hopeless at them.


Items Used
Pearlised card - Papermill Direct
Kanban tree stamp from the 'Spring Garden' set, embossed in Detail Silver
Sentiment stamp from the 'Just To Say' set - LOTV
Cuttlebug embossing folder called Jules Jewels (possibly!)
Memory Box Whimsical Flourish die - MCH
Memory Box Macarena Corner die - MCH
Mesh butterfly - MCH
Nestabilities ovals & Go Kreate circle dies

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far.  It's been hot in Sheffield - too hot for me, I just end up really sleepy!  Feels like it's cooling off a bit now though, so hopefully I can manage not to nod off.  Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

*Vicki* said...

WOWZER!!! So very stunning Lisa!! Love that embossing for your white on white design!! :)

Craftdee said...

This is a gorgeous WoW card, Lisa... perhaps because "somebody else" has made it - I really struggle with making them myself, being a lover of colour is a distinct disadvantage in a WoW challenge! I love that embossing folder, I'll have to try and find it (they really are a "go to" item in a WoW challenge, aren't they?) Like I said, a beautiful, elegant card, and so appropriate for it's purpose, Donna

Debs said...

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Take care
