Winged Wreath

Hello again  everyone!

My last card for today is another one I made for my lovely mum using Penny Black products.

When I saw the latest release, the Winged Wreath cling stamp (40-886) took my breath away. Isn’t it a beautiful stamp – so delicate and eye-catching!

I coloured it with my Twinkling H2O paints, and added LOTS of glitter and a few die cut butterflies from the Flourish and Butterflies set (51-198) and the Soaring set* (51-731).

The sentiment is  from the Without Limits mini stamp set* (30-949).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother’s Day 2023!

Hi everyone!

Next up is one of the cards I gave to my lovely mum today!

I used the amazing Spring Meadow stencil set and matching die by The Greetery for this card. I have to say the stencil set works perfectly and meant this was a very quick and easy make! I’m looking forward to using this with different colour combos!

Happy Saturday  everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown using products kindly sent to me by Penny Black.

When I saw the combo, I decided to step outside my comfort zone, pull out my watercolour paints and ink up the beautiful new cling stamp called Enchantment (40-885). I have to confess, I get a little nervous water colouring such a large stamp but I really enjoyed the process – the stamp was much easier to colour than I was expecting! While it was drying, I smooshed some brown distress ink onto a cream card base. I then fussy cut the image (which was also pretty easy) and adhered it to my card base with a few sticky fixers.

The sentiment is  from the Without Limits mini stamp set (30-949).

Filigree Easter Egg

Hello again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown ! The combo this week is perfect for Easter cards – so I decided to make my first Easter card this year!

I snapped up a few Easter bargains in a Simon Says Stamp sale last year – including the fabulous Filigree Message Oval. I’ve been waiting a year to use it and it was worth the wait! I die cut the image twice – I removed all the tiny die cuttings from the first image, which I coloured yellow with distress ink.  I left all the leaves, petals and dots in place on the second image and just coloured them with alcohol markers before adhering the yellow oval on top – much easier than inlaying all those tiny leaves and petals!

The sentiment is also by Simon Says Stamp and the background is embossed with eth fabulous Spellbinders Flower Frenzy embossing folder.

Record Birthday Card

Hello everyone!

Today I’m inadvertently playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge !

I started off by making a card for my brother using the Sugar Pea Designs Greatest Hits stamp and die set – but it was only when I was arranging the die cut records and CDs on my card base that I realised that this week’s sketch would provide the perfect layout!
