Dies and Embossing

Okay its that time again...time for me to share a few new cards and to say how excited I am about this month's challenge.  There are so many talented folks out there and to have that talent shared here on my little ole blog is just amazing to me.  I am inspired and encouraged every time I visit a site and see so many different styles and techniques.  In a few days I will be announcing the first challenge winner and I am so glad I use Random.org for that task...its way to much for me.

Anyway recently I was introduced to a new digi artist by the name of Rick St. Dennis and I must say I think his work is fabulous.  His digis are very intricate and full of detail.  I find joy in coloring them, so I am going to share two with you.  One I colored and the other was already colored when it was given to me.  But lets start the show by sharing them with you.

I'm not sure why, but I love all dies; I think they turn a plain card into a simple masterpiece.  For this card I  used the following:

Card-stock: Stampin' Up and Recollections
Image: Rick St. Dennis
Spellbinders Die
Embossing Folder
Copic Markers

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Dilly Beans - Pastel Challenge (4/18)
Card Crafter's Circle - Die Cut and/or Dry Emboss (4/18)
Splendiferous Creations - Emboss Me (4/18)

My second card was not colored by me.  I do not know who colored the image or I would give credit.  Anyway, I thought the image was adorable and decided to create a card with it so I could test out my new dies (I'm not sure who gave me the image, but thanks).

Card-stock: Recollections and Paper Studio
Image: Pre-colored Rick St Dennis
Spellbinders dies
Sentiment: Computer Generated

So there you have it.  Two cards that I would classify as Clean and Simple (CAS) but was lots of fun to create.

Before I end I would like to mention that I did prepare for my 500 follower giveaway because it looks like I am almost there....Yahoooooooo!!

This is most exciting!  Okay I've gotten to excited and now need a breathing treatment (you know oxygen) to get my heart and lungs functioning properly again. (just kidding...) I do need to stop just so I can get started with another card or maybe a mini album or something new from my favorite University....YouTube.

As always thanks for stopping by
Hugs Lesia

Lesia these are both gor-juss - love the colouring on both, and the die cuts make a stunning card without taking away from the images.
