Beautiful day

Hi everyone! I’ve just found a great new-to-me challenge – the Retro Rubber challenge where we have to use a stamp that is least a year old! I still love using my old wood block rubber stamps and so I think I’ll be entering the challenge quite a bit in future!

Anyway, on to today’s card – I used a flower stamp from Magenta and a sentiment from Amuse Art Studio. Neither of them have dates on them but I think I’ve had them both for 7 years or so!

I’m entering this into the Case This Sketch challenge and also the Retro Rubber challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Makes my heart sing

Hi there!

I’ve been trying to use the Purr-fect Friends stamp set from My Favorite Things for quite a while – and finally did today. I used images from the set together with two stencils by My Favorite Things to create this card (The sky/cloud inking on the window background is soft and so didn’t really show up in my photos unfortunately!).

Anyway, I’m entering today’s card into two challenges – My Favourite Things Sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (Furry Friends).

Thanks for stopping by!

Summer flowers

Hi everyone!

It’s an overcast day here today (typical bank holiday weather really) so I decided to make a bright summery card!

I used stamps from Simon Says Stamp, plus a stencil from My Favorite Things and a gorgeous embossing folder from Spellbinders!

I’m entering this into three challenges: Freshly Made Sketches, Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge and Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday.

Have a great day!

Be Loud!

Happy Saturday!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘Loud’ and I thought these wonderful stamps from Indigo Blu would be perfect.

I stamped the image and then masked it, before smooshing Distress Oxide Ink onto the background.

I think the image looks like it is raised off the background – it isn’t! The whole panel was mounted on funky foam before I stuck it onto a larger base card.

Thanks for looking!

You rock!

Hi everyone!

The current AAA Cards challenge is embossing – could be dry embossing, heat embossing or both! I chose to do both!

I covered a Cuttlebug embossing folder with ink to create the embossed white star background which I then cut using a start Lawn Fawn die. I then covered the stars with some Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for a bit of shimmer.

I added a sentiment from Krumspring stamps which I had heat embossed using sliver embossing powder.

Thanks for looking!
