Snow-one else like you

Hi Everyone!

I rarely play along with the My Favorite Things sketch challenge. Not sure why.. maybe because it rarely pops up in my IG feed… maybe because whenever I see the sketch, I rarely have MFT product that ‘fits’ the sketch.

Anyway, this time the stars aligned and the sketch popped up on my feed and I immediately thought that one of the cute snowmen from the Frosty Friends set would work perfectly.

First, I created my background panel with the Snow Flurry stencil and Cosmic Shimmer Luna paste – look at that sparkle! I coloured the snowman using my Twinkling H2O paints and then started to assemble my card.

I used the colours from this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches but as I felt it needed a bit more red and blue, I die cut some little hearts and added them to my card.

Thank for stopping by!

Autumn handful

Hi Everyone!

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

I was originally going to create a cluster of little Christmas trees but I suddenly thought of the gorgeous elements in the Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Wreath set. I’ve used the wreath quite a few times, but those little elements are barely used! So I chose a few, embossed them in gold and coloured them using my Twinkling H2Os.

I smooshed some distress ink onto a card base and added a few paint splatters. I adhered the Hero Arts sentiment and then arranged my autumn elements!

Such a fun card to create!

Hi, Hi Butterfly!

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has a lovely colour combo – grey, lavender and black.

I created a background panel using watercolours and Distress Oxide ink. I must confess I spent far longer on this than I should have. I couldn’t quite get a colour mix that I felt was representative of the combo. Eventually I was satisfied and cut the panel with the beautiful Lil Inker Designs Butterfly Cover Up die. I adhered the die cut to a black card base and inlaid some glitter card. Finally I added a sentiment, also by Lil Inker, to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m playing along with the Inspirational challenge – what an inspirational photo challenge!

I’d been planning what to make since I saw the image last weekend but the week has been crazy and I had to make my entry quite quickly this evening to meet the challenge deadline.

I’m not sure I did it justice… it didn’t really turnout as I’d hoped….

Anyway, I used dies by Simon Says Stamp and Poppystamps and a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Warm hugs and yellow blossoms

Hi Everyone!

Here I am with my last post of today. This time I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I decided to use the beautiful Mama Elephant Pine and Posy set again. I coloured the images with my Twinkling H2Os and then die cut them with the coordinating dies. I lightly splattered gold paint across the background before adhering the images and stamping a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.

Thank for stopping by!

Happy thoughts of autumn

Hi Everyone!

Next up today is what I created for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

What a fun sketch! Loved seeing all the creative inspiration over at the challenge blog and in the end I decided to use my favourite My Monthly Hero kit. It’s from September 2018 but I didn’t actually buy it until earlier this year – I was so happy to be able to purchase it so many months after it went on sale!

I coloured the little images with my Twinkling H2Os (just look at that shimmer!) before adhering them to an embossed panel. I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant to finish off my card.

Thank for stopping by!
