Peek a boo chick

Happy Easter everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is ‘add texture’.

Using a Creative Expressions stencil , I applied texture paste across my card base and added a Memory Box egg and just a peek of the cute Simon says Stamp Peeking Chick die.

The sentiment is also from an older Simon Says Stamp set.

Doodle Eggs

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown which has a fabulous combo of pink, rust and green.

I decided it would be a fab combo to use for the Simon Says Stamp Doodle Eggs background stamp. I loved this stamp since it came out in 2018 but couldn’t justfy the purchase, so when it popped up in the Steals and Deals section last year, I managed to grab it. I coloured it with my Twinkling H2O paints and added a sentiment by Creative Expressions.

Easter Greetings Chicks

Happy Good Friday!

Well I’m feeling very confused as it has felt like a Saturday to me all day today – nice to have a bonus tomorrow!

Anyway, today I’m playing along with theme challenge at The Paper Players.

As it’s almost Easter, I felt I had to choose either chicks or bunnies for the animal theme – and I ended up using Tim Holtz’s fabulous Colorize Chick die set.

The nest is by Memory Box and I added a Reverse Confetti frame and Pretty Pink Posh sentiment.

Easter icons wreath

Hi there!

I actually had time this evening to make a card… or rather I MADE the time – you see, as soon as I saw the Just Add Ink challenge graphic, I knew I to play along because I had the perfect set by Pretty Pink Posh!

My card is very CAS – a simple embossed background using a Stampin Up folder and then the wreath which I coloured with my Twinkling H2O paints.

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Easter Egg branch

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s been quite a while since I played along with a¬†CAS Colours and Sketches challenge, but I finally had time this weekend!

I have to confess that I have taken a rather wide interpretation of the sketch with five eggs representing the five vertical lines in the sketch! But it was so fun to make, although it turned out to be a lot more fiddly than it should have been really! I used a Simon Says Stamp branch die which had built-in hangers for hearts an presents but of course, I had to cut the ‘hangers’ off the branch because I wanted to put the hangers for the eggs somewhere else…. and then I positioned the large egg too low ehich meant that my Waffle Flower hanger wouldn’t reach… I got through a lot of glitter paper making a longer one! Argh!

The eggs are by Poppystamps and the sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

Oh Bunny hi

Happy Saturday everyone!

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

I had all sorts of ideas for the sketch when I was looking at the challenge last night and then this morning I woke up and created something completely different!

I used the Hampstead Oval Frame die from Poppystamps to frame a set of cute bunnies from the Simon Says Stamp Oh Bunny stamp and die set.

The sentiment is by Taylored Expressions.
