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.

Thanks for stopping by!


Miss You

Hi there!

For today’s card I chose an older stamp from Penny Black together with an Altenew sentiment. I coloured the image stamp with distress markers and then spritzed it with a little water before stamping on to watercolour paper.

This was a super fast card to make, although I couldn’t resist adding a few sequins to this one as well!

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge.
