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!

Thank for stopping by!

Inkspiration

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!

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.

Falling leaves

Hello friends!

It’s going to be a busy day on my blog today as I share some cards I made for challenges that all close today!

First up is my entry for the current Memory Box challenge where the theme is ‘falling leaves’. I used the fabulous palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week – red, yellow and brown to colour the beautiful Jasper Leave die from Memory Box which I cut in half so that the sentiment didn’t cover the leaves!

I wasn’t too sure about the background so simply added some splatters before adhering the die cut and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wicked together

Hi there!

Once again i’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using just one corner and we have a fabulous seasonal colour palette as our optional twist. Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

I kept it pretty simple again. I stamped and embossed an image from the Picket Fence Studios ‘Wicked Together’ set and then blended some Carved Pumpkin distress ink into the centre of the pumpkin. I masked off the centre of the pumpkin and blended Twisted Citron to create a vibrant background.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the lovely Sandie – who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Bootiful!

Hi Everyone!

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

When I saw the sketch, I thought of my Poppy Stamps Stick Frames die. It didn’t really work exactly with the sketch so I cut up the frames and arranged them separately on my card. The ghosts are from the Friendly Ghosts set by Memory Box and the sentiment is my My Favorite Things.

I embossed the background using a Creative Expressions folder.
