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!

A bouquet of thoughts

Hi everyone!

Today’s is the last day of the current Daily Marker 30 Day colouring challenge. It’s such a fun challenge and I’m so grateful that the sweet Kathy Racoosin does this for our community!

I stamped a wonderful floral image by Stampendous and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. I stuck it to a card base and added a Clearly Besotted sentiment, some stickles and a few sequins to finish off the card.

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – ‘anything goes’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!

There’s a really strong colour combination for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge – red, black and white. My mind was whirring with so many possibilities for my take on this!!

In the end, I decided to use the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I cut a circle from a black panel and used my Nuvo aqua shimmer pen to add a bit of shimmer to the white background exposed by the circle. I used an older Memory Box die to cut some glittery red paper and attached this to my card. Finally I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment to finish it off.

Jalopy

It may sound odd, but I really like the word ‘jalopy’! It will always bring back memories of when my dad and I accidentally encountered the London to Brighton veteran car run one Sunday when we were running errands! Of course, most of those cars were in brilliant condition, but I love the word and so I will always use it to describe those wonderful vintage vehicles!

And of course this old Hero Arts stamp was the first thing I thought of when I saw that the theme for this week’s Less Is More challenge is ‘vehicle’. I created a very simple one layer card for the challenge, adding some subtle stencilled lines to anchor the gorgeous jalopy image which I had stamped in distress oxide ink.

I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to complete my card!

Glittery Yay

Hi There!

The Freshly Made Sketches challenge is celebrating 300 sketches this week and here is my take on their fabulous sketch.

I used a die from Clearly Besotted, plus a Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder and patterned paper from My Minds Eye.

After cutting out the ‘yay’, I coated it with sparkle embossing powder – this card really sparkles in real life – will add a close up later!

Thanks for stopping by!
