Be my Valentine

Another day, another Valentine card. Just can’t stop. In fact I have so many heart dies and stamps I could probably do a Valentine/love/friendship card every day for the next month before using them all!

Today’s card uses the Simon Says Stamp Heart Parade Die, which I think was one of my first SSS dies. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

As part of my crafty goal to use all my embossing folders this year, I used four folders by four different companies – Sizzix, Carabelle Studio, Crafts-Too and the company that sparked my interest in embossing and die cutting – Cuttlebug!

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – it must be love and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – love/hearts.

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.

Have a delightful day!

Hi Everyone!

I’m loving the sketch for this week’s Case This Sketch challenge – so many possibilities! In the end, I kept it simple!

I stamped and coloured a fabulous image from PaperArtsy using distress oxide inks. To finish off the card, I added a  Clearly Besotted sentiment to a blended strip of card and adhered it to the card.

Shimmering Ornaments

Hi there!

There’s an absolutely beautiful colour combo over at the Color Throwdown challenge this week – pink, green, kraft and white.

So many possibilities but alas my mojo seemed to have completely disappeared when I sat down to make a card…. luckily a trawl through my older, much-neglected wood-mounted stamps helped considerably!

I embossed beautiful older Magenta stamp with gold embossing powder and coloured it using my Twinkling H20’s. This card shimmers sooo much in real life! Always so hard to capture in a photo.

I cut a square out of a larger square of white card to create a thick frame and stamped a Clearly Besotted greeting in kraft coloured ink before mounting it on top of the image with foam.

Day 21 – 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 21 was Uniko Stamps. I don’t have many Uniko products, but I do have my eye on some of their fabulous stamp sets!

As I don’t have any Uniko Christmas products, I used stamps from Clearly Besotted and Penny Black for my take on Jane Taylor’s cute tag! I love how she put a wreath behind the tree – such a great design!

Thanks for stopping by!


Sincere Apologies

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Casology Challenge is ‘sorry’ and here is my take.

I die cut an oval from some masking paper and then used distress inks to create a blended background. It didn’t turn out as I’d expected, but I quite liked the effect so I decided to use it for the card base. I stamped an older Stampendous image using Delicata brown shimmer ink and then finished off the card with a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

I’m also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which has a fun mood board this week!
