Thank you

Deco Thank you

Hello friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current colour challenge over at The Paper Players. I’ve been wanting to play with the fabulous Poppystamps Gilded Plate die since I got it a few weeks ago and I thought that the colour combo would work very nicely. I chose gold as my fourth colour. The sentiment is also by Poppystamps (Jumbled Thank You).

Thanks for stopping by!

Blooming Poppy Thank You

Hello again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches and it’s another wonderful design this week friends!

I knew I wanted to use one of my old wood-mounted stamps for the sentiment/background section so once I had decided that, I was on a mission to find an image that wouldn’t obscure the large ‘Thank You’ in the background. I thought this beautiful Poppystamps Blooming Poppy fit beautifully!

I coloured it with distress inks and added definition with some coloured pencil and voila! Another super quick CAS card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks A Latte!

Hi there!

Next up today, I’m playing along with the sketch challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I used dies by Simply Graphic together with a Lil Inker Designs sentiment and a Echo Park stencil. I decided to use the colours from the Color Hues challenge but I got confused with the closing time for the challenge so didn’t submit that in time!

Thanks for stopping by!

You’re Brilliant!

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card with as much white space as possible and if you want to join with our optional twist, please add some stars to your creation! Our sponsor is Uniko.

I have a LARGE collection of stars dies…. I think it took me longer to choose the dies to use than it did to create this CAS card! In the end, I selected this fun star branch die by Simply Graphic and a Spellbinders star die. The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set – I really wanted to use the phrase ‘You’re a Star’, but oddly I only have two stamps with that phrase and neither worked for my design!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Sue, who is quite new to blogging but has some lovely cards and stories on her blog – go check it out!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Grateful die cuts

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday! Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge !

Isn’t it a fun sketch? I paired some Simply Graphic dies with a few sentiments by My Favorite Things for my take. Can you believe that I actually used a ‘clear up’ background that I created when clearing up leftover ink after getting inky last week! Love how I was able to get die cuts with differing colours!

Thank for stopping by!

Adventurous kitty

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has another super combo – orange, brown, moss green and cream.

I decided to use an old favourite for my take – the Tree-heart stamp from Penny Black. I then spent a good few minutes over-thinking ‘moss green’. I have a Twinkling H2O paint that’s actually called moss green, but is much more of a yellow-green than the inspiration card. In the end, I settled on two shades of green Twinkling H2O and I think they worked well. Once I finished colouring, I decided I wanted to add a little something extra to the image… I came across the Poppystamps kittens dies and decided to use a couple, coloured after my parents’ cats…. one of whom has definitely been known to get himself stuck up a tree!

To complete my card, I added a few brown splatters and a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
