Magenta Flowers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my Day 15 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge using my 15th wood-mounted stamp! This one is by Magenta and I decided I would play along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge again as the dark pink/grey/black combo is so versatile!

Anyway, I coloured the images using my Twinkling H2Os and added a few Nuvo drops to the centre of the middle flower. To finish off my very CAS one-layer card, I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Broken Record

Hello everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight we want to see your CAS cards using one corner only, with the optional twist of ‘music’. Our sponsor is Uniko.

I have quite a few music stamps and dies and decided to use an older record die from Taylored Expressions, together with a very new stamp set from My Favorite Things.

As I was going to be using a corner I decided a longer sentiment would work quite nicely although I must confess I am a little bemused by it! A broken record never made me happy when I was a child! But I decided to just go with it and stamped it down after smooshing some distress ink on my base card. I then die cut three little records and cut into one of them to break it.

Et voila, a very quick CAS card!

My teammates have created some beautiful designs over at AAA Cards and this fortnight our guest designer is Karen who has some beautiful cards and photos on her blog, Random Reflections – you must check it out!

Looking forward to seeing all the entries!

Thanks for stopping by!

Melle Papillion

Bonjour!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge which has the most amazing sketch this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use a triangle as a focal point and thought I’d probably end up using a tree. But, as I was going through my wood-mounted stamps I unearthed the sweet ‘Melle Papillon’ stamp from Penny Black. I got it in 2013 and haven’t used it much at all.

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out using a triangular die. I then embossed a sentiment from my favourite things and added die cut butterflies from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp.

Fabulous Flowers

Hi everyone!

It’s the 15th of the month and after a bit of a break, I’m back with a card for the Crafts-U-Love Design Team.

This month I received two Julie Hickey stamp sets: Family Sentiments and Floral Fusion.

I pulled out my distress oxides and started stamping! Once I was happy with my background, I spritzed the card generously with water to activate the Oxides and cause the inks to bleed a little.

For the sentiment, I combined some words from Julie’s set and added a die from my collection (Creative Expressions Happy Birthday die – brilliant price point on these!).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Love Day 2019

Sorry for the post overload friends – I have just been inspired to create Valentine’s cards this year!

Anyway, what would you do if you had a layover in Seattle? Head downtown or go to Impress Cards and Crafts? Yep, you’ve guessed it! When I had a layover at SeaTac last year, I hopped on a bus and took the short trip to Tukwila and spent a lovely couple of hours in Impress’s fabulous store there! So many craft goodies there! I bought this sweet heart die and Savvy Stamps sentiment stamp there! Making this CAS card today bought back a lot of happy memories from my little trip there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day

Hello again everyone!

I wanted to share another card celebrating today! This one is my Day 13 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and I used one of my older Magenta wood-mounted stamps, with one of my newest sentiment stamps (by Reverse Confetti).

I kept it simple so that the focus would be on that sweet cat and this was one of my quickest makes of the month so far!

Thanks for stopping by!
