Gilded Flower

Hello everyone!

I bought a couple of new Woodware stamps at the start of the year and have been wanting to use this beautiful big bloom for a while. It’s a large image and I thought it would be perfect to use with this week’s sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This was very quick to make – less than 15 minutes! I stamped the image and embossed it with Ranger sticky embossing powder. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Leaves gilding flakes. I die cut the image and stuck it on top of the two strips of glitter paper that I had stuck to the card base.

Very easy, but effective! Love the shimmer so much!

Die cuts only

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is die cuts only and our sponsor is Stamplorations.

I think this may be my favourite theme to date! I love using my dies – they are brilliant for quick CAS cards!

For my card, I used an image die from Simply Graphic together with a sentiment die from Savvy Stamps and a banner die from My Favorite Things.

I’m also entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (lilac, green, grey and white).

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and Noga Shefer, an instagram follower, is our Guest Designer.

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Best in the whole Mewniverse

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday!

I finally had the chance to play with the fabulous kitty stamp set that I got with my first order from Heffy Doodle stamps. Isn’t it cute – I just love that sentiment!

Lots of masking needed for this card – I’m hoping that the coordinating die will be available to purchase in the next release!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yes – a lyre on one of my cards!

Happy Friyay everyone!

Well, I can honestly say that I never thought that I would make a card with a lyre on it, but here it is! I was using the Waffle Flower ‘Currently Listening’ stamp set and spotted the lyre and just had to include it on this card, even thought I don’t know anyone who plays it!! Such an unusual instrument to include in the set!

I embossed the images and a sentiment stamp by Hero Arts and then stuck them in the frame that I cut from glitter paper using a Memory Box die. I added black glitter paper where the sections were too small for an image.

I adhered the die cut to a panel that I embossed with a Darice folder.

I’m entering this into the current Less is More challenge – music.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happiest of Birthdays

Hello there!

After days and days of making heart/love/friendship cards, it felt good to pull out some different supplies today.

For this card, I used image dies from Simply Graphic plus a sentiment stamp from My Favorite Things which I stuck to a kraft tag cut with a Penny Black tag die.

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day 2018

Hello and ‘Happy Heart Day’ people! I love that phrase, but haven’t found it on many stamps at all, sadly. The one on today’s card is from an older Stampendous set that I’ve had for many years. Probably a decade!!

I’m playing along with the current Penny Black and More challenge (Love, Hearts and/or flowers), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut) and the Work Your Stash Wednesday challenge over on Instagram – the theme is red and pink. Perfect for a heart card!

In addition to my lovely sentiment stamp, I used dies from Penny Black – I bought the heart dies just after Valentine’s Day last year, can’t believe I am only getting round to using them now!

Thanks for stopping by!
