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!

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!

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!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you know, I have been using my wood-mounted stamps throughout February and I hope to have created at least 28 cards using my wood-mounted stamps by the end of the month. But that doesn’t mean I’ve completely stopped playing with my new stamps! I bought this fabulous Avery Elle peacock just before Christmas. Perfect for today!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and also added a few die cut hearts which I’d coloured with the same paint.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, plus the current Color Throwdown Challenge (black, dark pink and grey).

Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t Break it!

Hello everyone!

For Day 12 of the Daily Marker 30 Challenge, I used one of my oldest stamps (‘Don’t Break it!’ by Penny Black) plus my newest purchase (the Avery Elle background die). I toyed with adding a sentiment but decided to leave it at the moment, I may add one when I send it!

Thanks for stopping by!
