Fabulous Flowers

Hi everyone!

It’s the 15th of the month and after a bit of a break, I’m back with a card for the Crafts-U-Love Design Team.

This month I received two Julie Hickey stamp sets: Family Sentiments and Floral Fusion.

I pulled out my distress oxides and started stamping! Once I was happy with my background, I spritzed the card generously with water to activate the Oxides and cause the inks to bleed a little.

For the sentiment, I combined some words from Julie’s set and added a die from my collection (Creative Expressions Happy Birthday die – brilliant price point on these!).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Love Day 2019

Sorry for the post overload friends – I have just been inspired to create Valentine’s cards this year!

Anyway, what would you do if you had a layover in Seattle? Head downtown or go to Impress Cards and Crafts? Yep, you’ve guessed it! When I had a layover at SeaTac last year, I hopped on a bus and took the short trip to Tukwila and spent a lovely couple of hours in Impress’s fabulous store there! So many craft goodies there! I bought this sweet heart die and Savvy Stamps sentiment stamp there! Making this CAS card today bought back a lot of happy memories from my little trip there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day

Hello again everyone!

I wanted to share another card celebrating today! This one is my Day 13 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and I used one of my older Magenta wood-mounted stamps, with one of my newest sentiment stamps (by Reverse Confetti).

I kept it simple so that the focus would be on that sweet cat and this was one of my quickest makes of the month so far!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you know, I have been using my wood-mounted stamps throughout February and I hope to have created at least 28 cards using my wood-mounted stamps by the end of the month. But that doesn’t mean I’ve completely stopped playing with my new stamps! I bought this fabulous Avery Elle peacock just before Christmas. Perfect for today!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and also added a few die cut hearts which I’d coloured with the same paint.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, plus the current Color Throwdown Challenge (black, dark pink and grey).

Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t Break it!

Hello everyone!

For Day 12 of the Daily Marker 30 Challenge, I used one of my oldest stamps (‘Don’t Break it!’ by Penny Black) plus my newest purchase (the Avery Elle background die). I toyed with adding a sentiment but decided to leave it at the moment, I may add one when I send it!

Purple and Green should never be seen…

Hello everyone!

Well I’m not sure about the title of my post… I recall hearing it as a saying from somewhere but I disagree with it – as would some British sporting institutions!!

Anyway, onto today’s card! I’m playing along with the current Case This Sketch challenge and used an old wood mounted stamp by a company called Inca Rubber Stamps. I’ve googled them, but it looks like they don’t exist any more.

I embossed the heart images and then coloured them to match the shades in my Basic Grey background paper.

To finish off the card I added a sentiment from Savvy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!
