Be Safe. Eat Cake.

Hi Everyone!

For today’s card, I used a new Riley’s & Company sentiment – which I HAD to have as soon as I saw it! I have a lot of cake stamps so I have a feeling this will be appearing on quite a few cards!

I used an older stamp/die set from Simon Says Stamp which I coloured using my Twinkling H2Os. The background was created using some controlled ink smooshing!

I Heart Summer!

Hi Everyone!

The theme for this month’s Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday is ‘Summer’ and so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to use my Sunny Studios layered popsicles. I find their layering stamps super easy to line up – and the popsicles are no exception!

Once I stamped the images several times using Altenew inks, I felt I needed ‘something’ to anchor the collection. I did a little controlled ink smooshing and then added a border die from Poppystamps – I think it almost looks like some sort of quirky popsicle holder! I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to complete the card

Thanks for looking!

You’re brilliant

Hi there!

Today’s card combines two challenges – the My Favorite Things sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (use patterned paper).

When I pulled out a 6×6 My Mind’s Eye paper pad from my paper mountain, I also challenged myself to use different paper colours as I mainly use the more muted papers in a pack.

I used dies and stamps from My Favorite Things and also a little bit of bling to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!

Stencilled birthday greetings

Hi everyone!

I’m loving the sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge – here is my take using a fabulous Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stencil and distress inks. And can I say how happy I am that one of my favourite distress colours that I used here (abandoned coral) is being release as a Distress Oxide ink today! Yay!

I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish it all off.

As I used a stencil, I’m also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (‘Stunning Stencilling’) and the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (Stencil It).

Thanks for stopping by!
