'Hang in there' at Visible Image

Well howdy doody y'all :D
It's Soozie Tooseday again.....it comes around so fast!

There's some FABULOUS entries in our Brighten Your Day - May Challenge, the talent is outstanding, if you haven't already entered you MUST, just remember only stamps can be used, no digi's and if you use Visible Image STAMPS then you double your chances of winning 1st prize which is £10 to spend on our ACE stamps and the teams favourite 3 get a blinkie :D
We really struggle to pick due to the amazing quality of entries, it's hard!
Helen and Mark have been working hard and are looking forward to the July edition of  'Craft Stamper', They've designed the cover stamp and have a 3 page spread, to get a copy it's usually out the first Friday of the preceding Month so that's the 7th of June....we CANNOT wait! 

Had some awesome creations on our Facebook Group page this week too......Clara is still proving to be as popular as ever.....have you indulged yet?.....go on, treat yourself :o)
I'd love to say just get Clara but I know it's never that way with Visible Image stamps..... 
1 usually turns into 5 haha ;o)

Right I better get onto my DT contribution for this week......and  it's 2 cards for the price of one :D

So for my easel card (wee bit addicted to these) they're different and simple to make and I like how you don't have to cram everything onto a single side.
I used a 6 x 6 black card, some Hobbycraft embossed  cadbury's purple card, ivory card stock and Docrafts bookprint paper and the most important part the elegant and sophisticated Chandelier Set
I LOVE it and I LOVE the sentiments, you can use these either with or without the Chandelier.
So for the first card I heat embossed the sentiment 'Just to Brighten your day' and the chandelier in Wow's Earthtone Grape which is a deep purple, added some black lace and matted.
For my main border I used the multitalented Grunge Flourish, one of thee bestest stamps, you can use the top, sides and back to achieve lots of different looks, this stamp is a MUST HAVE in any stampers collection, it really is, I use it so many times for all sorts of cards from grunge to classy! 

I used dusty concorde DI for the grunge flourish and put it all together and finished with some purple droplets on the chandelier and black gems.

For my number 2 card I used the Chandelier Set again with 'Hang in there' for my sentiment, heat embossed in wow primary ebony and wow metalline red, added some red teardrop gems and for my background I used the fabulous Crackle background and heat embossed in red metalline, and mounted with some black mesh and black gems, so 2 rather different cards using the same set. 

I love it, such a classy set and you get 4 sentiments with it, all for £9.99!!! Bargain!

Well I hope you liked my cards and thanks for popping in and I will see you all very soon.
Much Love
