Thank you

Butterfly thanks

There’s another fabulous sketch at Case This Sketch this week! For my card, I embossed a Hero Arts background stamp with white satin pearl embossing powder. I then blended a mix of regular distress inks (Seedless Preserves and Abandoned Coral) and Antique Linen distress oxide ink and wiped over the embossing to remove any excess ink. I used water to lift some of the colour from the butterfly wings and splattered a little randomly across the rest of the background.

I added a vellum banner, Hero Arts sentiment and some Memory Box butterflies cut from glitter cardstock to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks with a splash

Hi everyone!

I’m loving the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – black and white with a splash of colour. Here’s another entry using the Painted Thanks die from Simon Says Stamp plus the gorgeous Grands Cercles embossing folder from Studio Carabelle! I added a couple of Doodlebug enamel dots for the splash of colour.

The ‘thanks’ is cut from black glitter paper (but you can’t really see it from these pictures unfortunately!) and layered on a couple of black die cuts for added depth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there!

There’s a fabulous sketch over at the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week and here is my entry.

I used some gorgeous distress oxide inks together with dies and a stamp from My Favorite Things.

I love those distress oxide inks – they are amazing to work with and blend so nicely! Fabulous!

Thanks for looking!

White on White Thanks

Hi everyone

I didn’t have too much time to craft today but wanted to do a white-on-white card, which is the theme for the current Addicted to CAS challenge.

I used dies from Memory Box, Winnie and Walter and Penny Black to cut regular white cardstock and glitter cardstock (but I’m afraid you can’t see the glitter very well). Anyway, I thought I’d add a vellum panel behind the main die cut image… then I added some flowers…. then some pearls… I couldn’t stop myself….. Not sure the end result really qualifies as CAS, although in my defence there is still a fair bit of white space….

Thanks for looking!

Thank you Bella

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is ‘Going Dotty’ and I immediately thought of some circle dies from SSS that I haven’t used for AGES. I used stamps from Stamping Bella which I coloured using Twinkling H2Os.

I finished off the card by adding a few enamel dots in the frame – I used some actate behind the frame where it comes off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
