Limited Layers



This weeks challenge at Hiding In My Craft Room is Limited Layers, That is 2 layers only!!! This was a hard one for me as I love to layer up my cards. I decided that the best idea is to try a guys card for this theme as they prefer card with limited fuss!!

This card came together so quickly when I worked out what I was doing. The hot air balloons are from Hampton Art, and the background paper is from My Minds Eye spots and dots. 


The twine and stamp sets are from K Andrew Designs and the sets are Guy Talk & Sweet July

Super Scraps

It is Super Scraps day at Hiding in my Craft Room this week YEAH!!! Time to get into that scrap container and see what you can use!! 

I have recently purchased this MFT stamp and die set and I knew that I needed scraps to make the hot air balloons so...perfect time to make this card!! 


Now I really have no idea what any of the papers I have used are...sorry, but they are all scraps!! 
Even the background is from the scrap bag, I have used it quite a bit and this was the last bit of this sheet, except for a bit with a bird on it, will have to find out a way to use that scrap up!


The hot air balloons are from the My Favourite Things The stamps set is called Up Up and Away and it has a coordinating die of the same name.


The Sentiment is from K Andrew Designs stamp set Guy Talk and this stamp set has wonderful sayings for guy cards, and we all know how hard they can me to make!!

Now it is your turn to get out your scraps and show us at Hiding in my Craft Room what you can do!!
