Christmas in July 2021 – Day 7

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 7 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the CAS Christmas Card Challenge! The challenge theme is poinsettia so I thought it was the perfect time to use my brand new Sizzix Poinsettia Impresslits embossing folder.

I originally bought it to try the embossing powder/distress crayon technique that Tim Holtz demonstrated a year or so ago, but so far I have failed miserably! I think my embossing dauber is completely clogged as I can’t get decent coverage with it. I will keep trying.

So in the meantime, I coloured the poinsettia with my beloved Twinkling H2O paints. I stencilled some glitter paste to my card base and then added an Elizabeth Crafts Designs oval die cut before adhering the flower.

The die cut sentiment is by Crealies – I love that clean font!

Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Dad’s Day 2020

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge ! I rotated and flipped the sketch, I think that’s allowed with this challenge…

I used an older stamp from a Hero Arts set and dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs and Avery Elle to cut  panel I had created with distress oxide inks.

Thank for stopping by!


Golden birthday

Happy Saturday Everyone!

For today’s card, I used a set of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs (which I bought after Christmas but hadn’t got round to using yet!) and a die from Penny Black Stamps that I have been trying to get my hands on for a few months. Luckily my local craft store had a Penny Black delivery last weekend and I was able to snap it up!

I used the four colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (navy, light pink, white and gold) on a kraft card base. When I originally put the sentiment on the card, it looks a bit ‘lost’ so I added a small vellum rectangle to help it stand out a bit more.

I’m also entering this card into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (going round in circles).

Thanks for looking!
