Birthday

Yes – a lyre on one of my cards!

Happy Friyay everyone!

Well, I can honestly say that I never thought that I would make a card with a lyre on it, but here it is! I was using the Waffle Flower ‘Currently Listening’ stamp set and spotted the lyre and just had to include it on this card, even thought I don’t know anyone who plays it!! Such an unusual instrument to include in the set!

I embossed the images and a sentiment stamp by Hero Arts and then stuck them in the frame that I cut from glitter paper using a Memory Box die. I added black glitter paper where the sections were too small for an image.

I adhered the die cut to a panel that I embossed with a Darice folder.

I’m entering this into the current Less is More challenge – music.

Happiest of Birthdays

Hello there!

After days and days of making heart/love/friendship cards, it felt good to pull out some different supplies today.

For this card, I used image dies from Simply Graphic plus a sentiment stamp from My Favorite Things which I stuck to a kraft tag cut with a Penny Black tag die.

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut).

Spring Bouquet and liquid watercolours

Hi everyone!

I was able to play with the Avery Elle liquid watercolours today. I only got a couple to try but I will be getting more!

For this card, I used Avery Elle Stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.

Looking at it now, I wonder if I should have used grey cardstock as a base, rather than kraft…. Hmmm. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a delightful day!

Hi Everyone!

I’m loving the sketch for this week’s Case This Sketch challenge – so many possibilities! In the end, I kept it simple!

I stamped and coloured a fabulous image from PaperArtsy using distress oxide inks. To finish off the card, I added a  Clearly Besotted sentiment to a blended strip of card and adhered it to the card.

Owls Line Up!

Hi everyone!

I’m participating in the ‘Work your stash Wednesdays’ challenge on Instagram and thought I’d also share this week’s card here.

The challenge theme was ‘happy birthday’ and I used a fabulous owl stamp from Woodware that I bought last year but hadn’t managed to use.

To be honest, I’m not sure about this card. Maybe it’s because I generally prefer smaller images… or maybe it’s my colouring. Not sure…..

The sentiment is a die cut from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks for stopping by!

Belated birthday wishes to you

Happy Saturday everyone!

My new distress oxide inks arrived this morning and I have spent the day happily playing with them.

Here’s the first card I made using a die by Memory Box, a stencil by Studio Light and a sentiment from Winnie & Walter.

I’m entering this into the current Casology challenge where the theme is ‘late’.

Thanks for stopping by!
