Thank you

Thanks be bold blooms

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This card definitely evolved as I was making it and it’s very different from the card I had originally planned! In fact the only item that I kept the same was the panel that I’d embossed with the Spellbinders May 2022 Embossing Folder! I decided to adhere it to a piece of patterned paper and then found the fabulous Be Bold Blooms die cut image in my bits and pieces bowl – it matched the paper I’d chosen so well! I added a few Nuvo Jewel drops and a sentiment by Pretty Pink Posh to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!
