New Home

Hi there!

For today’s card, I used an older stamp which I bought from a local craft shop in London many years ago. I used distress inks for the background and then coloured the image with my twinkling H2o’s.

I toyed with adding some bling to this card, but in the end I decided against it (for once!).

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown Challenge (purple, mint green, hot pink and teal) and also the Casology challenge (house).

Thanks for stopping by!

Falling Circles

Hi Everyone!

There’s a fabulous new sketch over at Case This Sketch – and for my entry, I brought out my gorgeous Cosmic Shimmer gilding flakes again!

I used a stamp from Neat & Tangled for the main image and applied Ranger sticky embossing powder before adding the gilding flakes. They got EVERYWHERE, but were soon gone, thanks to my trusty Swiffer cloth!

Anyway, I added a frame using a die from My Favorite Stamps and finished off the card with an embossed older sentiment from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Belated Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone

For today’s quick card, I used a gorgeous die from Simon Says Stamp which I cut twice – once in glitter paper and once in vellum.

I offset the glitter die cut to expose just a thin shadow of vellum. I added some Hero Arts Metallic Décor and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to complete the card.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – ‘birthday bash’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bright Anniversary

Hi Everyone

It’s still so hot and sunny here in London – I’m sure it can’t last much longer. My craft room is like an oven, so I was only in there for a short amount of time today!

Here is my card – inspired by the Ellen Hudson June Pinsights challenge. The dies and sentiment stamp are by Essentials by Ellen and I also used a Tim Holtz flower stencil on the hearts and base card.

I’m entering this into the Ellen Hudson challenge and also the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Thanks for looking!
