Time Flies by….

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘fly’ and here is my quick take.

To add a bit of interest to the base, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with a Spellbinders embossing folder. The main image is from Hampton Art – I’ve had this stamp for AGES, but I’ve rarely used it…. It’s one of my frequently used sayings so it’s quite weird that I haven’t used this stamp very much!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!


Words Take Centre Stage

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ‘Word take centre stage’ and Uniko is our sponsor.

When I saw the theme I immediately thought of my sentiment stamps from Impression Obsession. I love this Journey stamp and really wanted to use it as I think it is so powerful – although I must confess, I did find it quite challenging to work into a CAS card! In the end, I kept it very simple with just a raised panel and a couple of Penny Black die cuts. I did create a few cards using this stamp, which I’ll share at some point!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards in the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Nonni from Nonni’s Handmade Cards. She has some breathtaking creations on her site – please drop by and take a look!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!


New Home

Hi there!

For today’s card, I used an older stamp which I bought from a local craft shop in London many years ago. I used distress inks for the background and then coloured the image with my twinkling H2o’s.

I toyed with adding some bling to this card, but in the end I decided against it (for once!).

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown Challenge (purple, mint green, hot pink and teal) and also the Casology challenge (house).

Thanks for stopping by!


Aloha parrot

Aloha cousins!

(I heard that phrase A LOT during my trip to Hawaii some years ago and always think of it when I hear/see ‘aloha’!)

Anyway, when Hero Arts released their latest stamps, I fell in love with the colour layering koala, but soon realised I had overlooked the fabulous parrot set! I used it to make today’s very quick and simple card – and of course I had to use the ‘aloha’ sentiment!

Have a great weekend!


Be Loud!

Happy Saturday!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘Loud’ and I thought these wonderful stamps from Indigo Blu would be perfect.

I stamped the image and then masked it, before smooshing Distress Oxide Ink onto the background.

I think the image looks like it is raised off the background – it isn’t! The whole panel was mounted on funky foam before I stuck it onto a larger base card.

Thanks for looking!


An owl and a pussycat!

Hi there!

The colours for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge are turquoise, lime green, yellow and white and here is my entry. It’s difficult to see in this photo, but I have blended Broken China and Twisted Citron distress inks and so the background looks much greener in real life!

All dies/stamps are by Avery Elle.
