Magenta Flowers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my Day 15 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge using my 15th wood-mounted stamp! This one is by Magenta and I decided I would play along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge again as the dark pink/grey/black combo is so versatile!

Anyway, I coloured the images using my Twinkling H2Os and added a few Nuvo drops to the centre of the middle flower. To finish off my very CAS one-layer card, I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet buds

Hello everyone!

Day 6 of the Daily Marker Colouring Challenge on Instagram and Day 6 of my personal challenge to use my older wood-mounted rubber stamps.

Today’s chosen stamp is called ‘Sweet Buds’ by Penny Black and is from 2012! I so enjoyed playing with this one again!

I stamped and coloured the image and then I embossed a frame using a circle die. I then masked around the circle and blended a little grey distress ink. The sentiment is by Penny Black.

This was such a fun one-layer card – and although I’ve already shared my DT creation for AAA Cards Challenge this week, this card also fits our theme and optional twist!

Anyway, I’m entering this card into three challenges: Penny Black & More,  CAS Colours & Sketches and a new-to-me challenge, Hand Stamped Sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sincere thanks

Hi there everyone!

Today I have a card I made using an old Stamp-It kitty stamp from my wooden stamp collection and the sketch from the current Case This Sketch challenge.

I stamped the image and then coloured it in using my Twinkling H2Os. I then embossed the Clearly Besotted sentiment, cut it out with a Lawn Fawn die and folded the end to reflect the sketch. I rarely play around with my sentiments like that, but I really like the effect, must try it more often!

I then added a few gems as the finishing touch!

Thanks for stopping by!

Masked Birthday Blooms


Hello everyone and Happy Sunday!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight we are challenging you to use up to a third of your CAS card. The rest of your card should be completely ‘clean’. The optional twist is ‘masking’. Our sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays.

For my card, I use stamps from an older Simon Says Stamp set called ‘Oh Happy Day’. I stamped the large flower first, masked it off and then stamped the smaller flowers.

I then added masks to the smaller flowers before stamping the leaves. I removed the masks and coloured the flowers using my Twinkling H2Os.

To finish off my card, I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment and a few of my favourite Nuvo glitter drops.

My teammates have come up with some gorgeous inspiration over at the AAA Cards Challenge blog. We are also joined by our Guest Designer – the talented Julie who has some gorgeous cards over on her blog, Crafted by Jules.

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Heart stems

Hello friends!

I am so honoured to be the Guest Designer over at the Case This Sketch challenge this week.

There’s a fabulous new sketch to play with – I had a lot of fun coming up with my card!

I cut four thin strips of cardstock to create an ombre-effect base. I then cut the Impression Obsession heart stems and added four of them to my card. Finally I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to finish off my take on the sketch.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bluebell

Hello there

Today I have a card that I made for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

To start with, I chose an image from an older Penny Black set called Enchanted Garden, stamped, coloured and fussy cut it.

I created my background panel by gently applying a layer of Bundled Sage distress ink using a Tim Holtz blending brush to create an ombre effect. I then used an Ultimate Crafts embossing folder that seemed to match the image very well but which, somewhat worryingly, was brand new but I have no recollection of buying!

I stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment on a strip of grey card an then cut a slightly longer strip of clue glitter card and then set about assembling the card. I added a few glitter drops as a finishing touch!

Thanks for stopping by!
