Little Letters Thinlits Home Card


It has been a wee while since I participated in challenges - so when I got inspired by two challenges and there are no other pressing deadlines for me to meet tonight (lol), I got stamping :-)

JAI#127: Just Add Typography




I am always admiring those typography wall art print at the shops so when I first saw the Just Add Ink #267 Challenge, I thought about it and knew it would be a challenge indeed for me to try and arrange all the words together. And sure enough, it was hard! I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #128. I am pleased with the end result, even if the stamping is a bit crooked here and there.





I was going to frame this little number for our home, but remembered that our new neighbours have just moved into their newly bought home this weekend. Three of our family friends, currently living very near us, are all moving, in the next week/months - one family going to the UK for a year (sob for us, but yay for the UK). So now I have a dilemma as to who to give this card to. Of course, I could just make up a few more, but all that word arrangement is a bit taxing for the brain at this hour of the night so I will just sleep on it :-)

ps: All the photos were taken with Hubby's iPhone in the nightlight...so I may try to take photos of the card again in the day light tomorrow.




Blessings, and Happy Stampin'

Wow! Michelle this is fabulous! I love your arrangement of all the wonderful words that make up a home and your bold black panel that brings it all together. You've captured your inspiration of the printed art and our challenge theme so beautifully! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

This is so perfect for the challenge!!! Love all the different fonts and words you used, makes for such an amazing background. And really like the neutral colour palette too. So glad to see you at Just Add Ink this week and hope you are inspired to join us again soon!

Such a lovely gift for your friends, Michelle (whoever you decide to give it to!). Great way to combine challenges, and you've rocked our Typography challenge. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.

Keeping the words all monochromatic really ties the different styles together Michelle and lets your home banner stand out. This is a great take on typography. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
