Do More With Less Guest Designer, Challenge and Giveaway!!

For the Prima Doll Blog Hop Week 2, click HERE

I am so honored and excited that my sweet friend Yvonne has asked me to be a guest on her blog Do More With Less today!! Yvonne is an amazing crafter who takes upcycling to the next level!! Her projects are so unique and creative - they are full of color and texture and I guarantee you will be inspired!! If you haven't visited her blog, you must!!


Yvonne has asked that I share a project and favorite technique. As all of my regular followers know, I can hardly make a project without using at least one Spellbinders die, so of course my favorite technique has to do with Spellbinders :)


For all the details on how I created this card which features a secret message, along with a tutorial on how to create the shaped base, please visit Yvonne's blog HERE. Also, I am hosting a challenge where you can link up your cards using the technique I've shared. You could win BLOG CANDY!!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. JustRite Friday Challenge #103 - Things With Wings (Musical Notes Labels 20 stamp)
  2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Make the Cut
  3. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  4. Sunday Funday - August Linky Party
  5. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
  6. Inspire Me Friday #115 - Anything Goes
Thanks so much for visiting!! I really hope you will play along with the challenge!! You have until 11:55am (EST) on Friday, September 6th to link up. I can't wait to see what you create :)

  6. My sweetest friend... what can possibly be said? Even extraordinary doesn't seem fitting. :o) This is a true masterpiece and I adore every tiny millimeter of it. I always love those Spellbinders bases individually, but layered together they take on added elegance that truly defies description. :o) I absolutely love how they layer together... especially when it's the card shape! The elegance is off the charts and I LOVE how you've used the papers! (Hey, weren't we just talking about this stack?!) The butterfly is gorgeous. I hopped over to your friend's blog and I am crazy in love with the secret message. SO clever! It looks amazing. :o) Congratulations on the feature and well done on the tutorial. :o) What a way to end my night... I am so thankful for you and treasure you always! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!

  7. This is so pretty Lisa. You are right about the Spellbinders. I don't think I've seen many cards from you that didn't include them. Have a great week.
