Gilded Flower

Hello everyone!

I bought a couple of new Woodware stamps at the start of the year and have been wanting to use this beautiful big bloom for a while. It’s a large image and I thought it would be perfect to use with this week’s sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This was very quick to make – less than 15 minutes! I stamped the image and embossed it with Ranger sticky embossing powder. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Leaves gilding flakes. I die cut the image and stuck it on top of the two strips of glitter paper that I had stuck to the card base.

Very easy, but effective! Love the shimmer so much!

Best in the whole Mewniverse

Hi everyone!

Happy Saturday!

I finally had the chance to play with the fabulous kitty stamp set that I got with my first order from Heffy Doodle stamps. Isn’t it cute – I just love that sentiment!

Lots of masking needed for this card – I’m hoping that the coordinating die will be available to purchase in the next release!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day 2018

Hello and ‘Happy Heart Day’ people! I love that phrase, but haven’t found it on many stamps at all, sadly. The one on today’s card is from an older Stampendous set that I’ve had for many years. Probably a decade!!

I’m playing along with the current Penny Black and More challenge (Love, Hearts and/or flowers), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut) and the Work Your Stash Wednesday challenge over on Instagram – the theme is red and pink. Perfect for a heart card!

In addition to my lovely sentiment stamp, I used dies from Penny Black – I bought the heart dies just after Valentine’s Day last year, can’t believe I am only getting round to using them now!

Thanks for stopping by!

Be my Valentine

Another day, another Valentine card. Just can’t stop. In fact I have so many heart dies and stamps I could probably do a Valentine/love/friendship card every day for the next month before using them all!

Today’s card uses the Simon Says Stamp Heart Parade Die, which I think was one of my first SSS dies. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

As part of my crafty goal to use all my embossing folders this year, I used four folders by four different companies – Sizzix, Carabelle Studio, Crafts-Too and the company that sparked my interest in embossing and die cutting – Cuttlebug!

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – it must be love and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – love/hearts.

Love You. Mean It.

Hi there everyone!

For today’s card, I pulled out an older Penny Black heart border stamp from my wood mounted stamp collection – it’s been quite a while since I used it and I enjoyed inking it up again!

I blended a little Tumbled Glass distress ink before I stamped the image and then added Bundled Sage afterwards.

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

I used Delicata shimmer inks for the image and sentiment – I just love that shimmer!

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch Challenge and also the Work Your Stash Wednesday challenge over on Instagram.

Hearts Border cards

 

Happy Saturday everyone!

I didn’t have much time to craft today, but I did manage to make these three cute inlaid die cut cards using the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Cupids Heart Boarder die.

I also tried out the new Avery Elle liquid water colours – love them!

I added sentiments from My Favorite Things and Clearly Besotted to finish the cards.

I’m entering these into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (it must be love) and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge (love/hearts)

Thanks for stopping by!
