Fab-Boo-Lous!

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Case This Sketch challenge

I have been coveting the Fab-boo-lous Friend set by My Favorite Things for YEARS and eventually bought the stamps and dies over the summer. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I could finally ink up the set!

Thank for stopping by!

Hi there flower!

Hello friends!

There’s another amazing colour palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge  this week – purple, light green, teal and ivory.

Here’s what I came up with – I finally used another brand new background die, bought eons ago plus The Greetery Sunflower dies and a Waffle Flower Crafts sentiment die.

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Lanterns

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

Narelle has created a fabulous sketch that was just crying out for me to dip into my patterned paper mountain again – so I did!

I used the fabulous Chinese Lantern die from Poppystamps – it actually has 3 stems but I cut off one stem so that the die cut aligned with the card elements.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Merry Whittle Penguins

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Case This Sketch challenge

I used my newest cute Christmas dies – the Whittle Penguins by Poppystamps, a background stamp and couple of dies from My Favorite Things and a Mama Elephant sentiment stamp. The Embossing Folder is by Taylored Expressions.

Autumnal cottage scene

 

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I love this unusual sketch and was originally going to use a few die cut trees but as I was looking for the tree die, I stumbled across the Poppystamps Boddington Cottage die. I thought I could make it work with the sketch and got to work!

I didn’t do too much inlaid die cutting this time – just the cottage. For the trees, I coloured some card using my Daniel Smith Watercolours and then stuck my die cut on top before adhering the image to the card base.

The embossed sentiment is from the September 2018 Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit.

I’m also entering this into the current Poppystamps challenge – Anything Goes.

Thank for stopping by!

Peony Bowl

Hello friends!

I’ve had this gorgeous Peony stamp set from the Ton since March but I’d been waiting to use it because I wanted to spend my time colouring such a beautiful image. Today was the day! I used my new Daniel Smith watercolours and got to work with the current colour palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge – red, yellow, brown and green.

When I finished colouring, I didn’t feel that I had used enough yellow so I smooshed some Mustard Seed distress ink on my base card – yellow is definitely more visible now!

I didn’t want the sentiment to detract from the beautiful image so added a small Mama Elephant sentiment stamped onto a punched tag to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
