Arty Farty car & a set of Lim cards

Morning Crafter's and fellow Limettes today I have an 18th Birthday card I made for our Great Niece & a set of 4 Lim cards.
I made the car using an Arty Farty template, CC Pearl Centura & Kan Ban card.
Bits from my stash.


Tomorrow Suzicraft are having a Craftathon to make Christmas card for our troops. So I decided to make a set to take with me.

After racking my brains  I remembered I had a lend of this xmas tree stencil.
So I used my Dreamweaver embossing paste and glitters. I love the effect although you need to be patient and wait till it dries.

Some of the sentiments have been stamped & some I used the Stamp & stick glue pad.
You heat it then apply the glitter!
I don't no what I am doing wrong but I am not very happy with the results. 
 I don't feel as if it's sticky enough.
So any tips would be gratefully received.

Thanks for calling.
Have a great Sunday.

Two LIM cards today!

YAY I found it! 
I have spent ages looking for this card! Talk about a senior moment! I had put it under my cutting matt to flatten it cos I'd heat embossed it. No wonder I couldn't find it.
I embossed the heart using the GC & large heart nestie. Onto a 6x6 Papermania  card. I heat embossed the Pansy's and coloured them with Pro Markers.

This one was stamped using this lush fir heart!

 I bought from Chloe's Creative Cards
Chloe is so talented & has some beautiful stamps she has created herself.  
I stamped it with Versamark & dusted in gold Perfect Pearl powder.
I embossed the card edges with Hougie board!

I am entering them both into the LIM Challenge 36 heart/s "One Layer" I hope the ribbon & bow is acceptable. I just felt it needed a little bit of something extra.

I have had a wonderful few hours at the Nissan Papercraft show with my best friend. Bought lots of bits I shouldn't have lol! What's new?
Hope you all have a great week.

Its Challenge 36 one layer week at LIM. It has to be a heart but can be multiple as long as it's one layer!

I made a square 6x6 card with Papermania Capsule white card. i made a mask & embossed the largest of the large nestie hearts onto my card. Sentiment & image Penny Black. Stamped with Versafine Onyx. I smudged the sentiment a little but I quite like it that way.
