Floral Stem Collage

 

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. I decided to use a new-to-me die, the beautiful Floral Stem Collage from Poppystamps. As the flower bends into the right of the frame, I flipped the sketch and lined the die cut on the left side of my card!

I coloured the die cut with my Twinkling H2O paints before adhering it to a piece of Basic Grey paper. After adhering the die cut to my base card, I added a stamped sentiment from an older Hero Arts/Basic Grey collaboration set.

Thank for stopping by!

Hi Everyone!

just a quick post today – I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the deadline is looming!

I used Basic Grey papers and die from My Favorite Things and Simply Graphic to create my take on the sketch. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Be Happy

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I’ve been struggling with my mojo recently. I was so motivated to create during my Christmas in July series but it’s just disappeared this month. To be fair, life has been busy with a few home/garden challenges…

To kickstart my mojo, I decided to play along with the Global Design Project, which has a colour challenge this week. I chose a fun set my PaperArtsy (ref EKD03) and got to work. I actually embossed and coloured the image first and then thought about the design. Not the way I usually work and I ended up spending a bit of time trying out various designs before settling on this one. I’m still not completely sure about it, but sometimes you just have to stop and tell yourself, ‘that’s enough’!

Hello lovely whittle cat!

Hi Everyone!

Well its been quite the stressful weekend with various house/garden issues; the atmosphere has not been conducive to creating. But I finally managed to make a card against all the odds today!

I’m playing along with a new-to-me challenge, the Global Design Project, which has a CASE the designer challenge this week. I loved the rustic feel of the inspiration card by Janneke de Jong and the design was fabulous. I’m so glad that it helped me get down to creating!

I used the cute Whittle Cat die from Poppystamps plus a couple of butterfly dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box. The sentiment is by Mama Elephant and the embossing folder is by Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone!

I’m still playing catch up with the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge and my personal wood stamp challenge.

For my Day 16 colouring, I decided to use another stamp from my Hero Arts collection! This one is from a set of stamps called Wedding Day. They got a lot of use back in the day when my friends were getting married! I stamped it on Bristol cardstock and coloured it using my Zig Real brush markers and Twinkling H2O paints.

I dry embossed a square die in the centre of my card and adhered the image. I then carefully added a Clearly Besotted sentiment to complete my card.

I’m entering this into the current Addicted to CAS challenge where the theme is wedding.

Thanks for stopping by!

You are Pawesome!

Hi there!

I’m still playing catch up with the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge! This is my rather small amount of colouring for Day 14!

I used one of my Hero Arts wood mounted cat stamps – the Dots Cat. I remember stamping him several times in a circle for a birthday card for my dad back in the day. Things are much easier nowadays with the MISTI!

Anyway, I coloured him with my Twinkling H2Os and added a sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp. I actually think this was be the very first SSS die that I purchased!

Thanks for stopping by!
