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!

Flower Tree

Hello everyone!

I’ve been playing with another older wood-mounted stamp from Hero Arts this morning! This one is called Flower Tree and is from 2009! I remember buying it from one of my local stamp stores! That was when I had 4 stamp stores within a 40 minute drive…. only one remains today, so sad

Anyway I used the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (red,orange and yellow). I was quite nervous about adding the splatters, but it worked out ok!! The sentiment is from Avery Elle.

You star!

Happy Monday everyone!

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

I started by creating an embossed panel using a square piece of card and an embossing folder.

I knew that I wanted to use my Avery Elle star frame for the focal point, but didn’t want the embossed background to be seen in the centre of the frame. So, I carefully cut and stuck a piece of vellum to the frame and the added a silver die cut star to the centre.

I then stamped a Hero Arts sentiment on a strip ofwhite card which I trimmed down to touch the edge of the frame rather than run behind the vellum. A bit tricky, but it turned out just as I’d hoped.

Hearts confetti

Hello friends!

As I was flicking through my dies the other day, I was a bit shocked about the number of heart dies I have! So I grabbed one to use straight away for another entry into the Time Out challenge which has the theme ‘loving’.

I chose the Poppystamps Heart Confetti College die as my focal point in a panel I cut using a wonky stitch rectangle. I then adhered the panel to a background I’d created when I was playing with various distress oxide inks.

I added a simple glittery sentiment using a couple of Avery Elle dies and finished off my card with some trusty Nuvo glitter drops.

Advice from Mr Frosty

Hi everyone!

I just LOVE the My Favorite Things Frosty Friends stamp set! Today, I’ve paired my favourite snowman from the set with the fabulous Snowman’s Advice stamp from Newton’s Nook and a super Avery Elle background die.

Thanks for stopping by!
