Spring Bouquet and liquid watercolours

Hi everyone!

I was able to play with the Avery Elle liquid watercolours today. I only got a couple to try but I will be getting more!

For this card, I used Avery Elle Stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.

Looking at it now, I wonder if I should have used grey cardstock as a base, rather than kraft…. Hmmm. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Hearts Border cards

 

Happy Saturday everyone!

I didn’t have much time to craft today, but I did manage to make these three cute inlaid die cut cards using the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Cupids Heart Boarder die.

I also tried out the new Avery Elle liquid water colours – love them!

I added sentiments from My Favorite Things and Clearly Besotted to finish the cards.

I’m entering these into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (it must be love) and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge (love/hearts)

Australia Day

Happy Australia Day to all my Australian friends!

I was finally able to get down to a bit of colouring this afternoon! Of course, I had to choose something with an Australian theme for today and pulled out the wonderful Avery Elle/Ellen Hutson United we Flourish ‘G’day Mate’ set. And found a way to use EVERY SINGLE MAIN IMAGE on one card!!!!

I wanted to choose non-traditional colours and so used the Ellen Hutson Pinsights challenge mood board. Isn’t this month’s board fabulous! I may have to use this again.

Anyway, after colouring the images with my Twinkling H2Os, I turned my attention to the card base. I created a background using a couple of Distress Oxide inks. I then used an Ellen Hutson heart die to cut a piece of white card stock before embossing it with a Couture Creations embossing folder.

The sentiment die is also by Avery Elle.

Snowflake Greetings

Great news everyone! I have finished my Christmas cards! It took AGES to write and address them, but I got there in the end! And that means I can go back to creating rather than ‘mass’ producing!

Here’s one of the quicker Christmas cards I made to send out this year. I made a few of this design with an Avery Elle stamp and various snowflake dies. The one in this card is from Simon Says Stamp.

I wanted to add a little something to the snowflake to finish it off and was so pleased to see how closely the nail heads matched the fabulous blue Delicata ink.

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge.

Day 18 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

I was so pleased to see that the Day 18 sponsor was Avery Elle. Yay! One of my favourite companies! I loved Tracey’s die cut wreath and used her tag as my inspiration.

Whilst I have the wreath stamp set, I don’t have the dies so I ended up creating a circular tag. I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2O paints and stuck it to a brown base that I’d cut using a Spellbinders die.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 15 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 15 was Amuse: Christmas Visions. There was so much inspiration from the DT, but Tracey’s tag really stood out to me and so I just HAD to CASE it, using regular distress ink and stamps from Avery Elle and Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
