Tulip Vase

Hi there! The theme for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge is ‘tulips’ and it gave me the chance to use one of my very first stamps from Hero Arts! Using this brought back lots of memories!

I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2Os and used an embossing folder from Darice Crafts to create a the base panel.

I’m also entering this into the ‘anything goes’ challenge hosted by A Blog Named Hero.

How does your garden grow?

Hi There!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘grow’ and I immediately thought of this older silhouette stamp from Hero Arts! I paired it with an Essentials by Ellen sentiment and mounted it on panel which I embossed using a fabulous new folder from Spellbinders.

I’m also entering this into the current Blog Named Hero challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!

I love the colour combination for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (red, orange, purple and yellow) and I made this quick card using the sketch from the current Case this Sketch challenge.

I applied distress ink to a Hero Arts background stamp and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls before stamping to give the panel a little bit of shimmer. The word die is also cut from a shimmery cardstock and is by Winnie & Walter.

Red Berry Wreath

Happy Friday! It’s been a few weeks since I played along with the Merry Monday challenge, but I HAD to join this week as the theme is ‘wreath’ and I have a LOT of wreath dies and stamps. I used the sketch from Fusion Card Challenge and all dies and stamps are by Simons Says Stamp.

Finally I added tons of enamel dots that I made using Nuvo drops and added two glittery cardinals to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!

Row of Presents

Hello!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is ‘splash it on’ and here is my entry!

I sprinkled water onto an ink-blended background before cutting it with the Simon Says Stamp presents die. I also did a little controlled ink smooshing on the base card before adding my die cut image.

I’m also entering this into the current CAS Mix It Up challenge (inlaid die-cutting, stamping, ink blending and smooshing).

All dies and stamps are by Simon Says Stamp.

A Spring Walk in London

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is ‘spring walk’. I interpreted it a little differently from others….

Although it has been sunny in lovely London recently, many (most?!) spring walks require an umbrella, so I chose this fabulous stamp from Penny Black for my entry and coloured it with my trusty Twinkling H2O’s for a bit of shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by!
