Color Throwdown – Just Because

Hello everyone!

I’m delighted to be the Guest Designer over at one of my favourite challenges, the Color Throwdown. They have a lovely peaceful palette this week – light blue, grey and kraft

I used dies from a few different manufacturers – Penny Black (cat), Altenew (sentiment) and Poppystamps (circle). I sponged Hickory Smoke and Stormy Sky distress ink to quickly colour the images.

The Color Throwdown team are all sharing some gorgeous inspiration over on the blog. Hope you can play along too!

Starry Flowers Hello

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have another fabulous colour palette this week – plum, cream and black!

I usually have problems when purple is included in a colour challenge palette, but I was lucky this week as I had a lovely shade of plum in my Twinkling H2O paint collection. So, I inked up the beautiful Altenew Starry Flowers stamp and quickly coloured it using the Twinklings and a black coloured pencil for the stems. I added a few black Nuvo drops to the centres after I cut out the image with the coordinating die. I cut the Altenew Burlap die from black card and adhered it and the flower cluster to a cream card base. To complete my take, I added a sentiment from the Altenew Painted Sentiments set and tucked it partly behind my main image.

Day 3 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 3 was Altenew. I love Altenew and have all their inks and quite a few older florals and dies… but I don’t have much from their recent releases. However, I still managed to use some Altenew product for this card.

I loved the tags made by the creative team and decided to use Norine‘s inspiration for my take. The embossed sentiment, base tag and fronds are by Altenew and I also used dies by Poppystamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 2 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 2 was Simon Says Stamp – all the inspiration was amazing, but as I’m short on time, I decided to use Barbara Tarayao.’s die cut tag as my inspiration.

My base tag is by Altenew and all other dies used here are by Simon Says Stamp.

Blue and Beige Vase

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

I used a Taylored Expressions stencil for the oval and added die cuts by Simply Graphic and Altenew. The Altenew vase is cut from a piece of my beloved Basic Grey paper! The sentiment is from a very versatile Mama Elephant set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Merriest Wishes Trio

My name is LucieG and I have a problem with Christmas tree stamps and dies. I can’t stop buying them. Every year I limit myself and every year, I end up buying more. There are so many cute designs around! One of my most recent acquisitions is this gorgeous stamp and die set, Enchanted Forest by Papertrey ink. I love those quirky trees!

I decided to play along with the sketch challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge – perfect for showcasing a few of those trees!

I used Altenew Inks – they stamp so beautifully – and added a sentiment by My Favorite Things – plus a nice amount of stickles too!

Thanks for stopping by!
