Snowflake medallion bauble

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous combo of white, gold and blue.

Last weekend, I rediscovered eBay and managed to snag a few great deals! I had been wanting the Hero Arts Snowflake Medallion die since I saw it last year and so I was very pleased to finally get hold of it! I had to use it straight away with this card – I cut some of my brand new Simon Says Stamp white glitter card, although it’s pretty difficult to photograph the shimmer. Anyway, I added it to a circle that I’d covered with Prize Ribbon/Chipped Sapphire distress oxide and added a glittery gold chain using a die from teh Hero Arts Joy Ornament. Finally I added a sentiment from Hunkydory/Moonstone.

Autumnal Monterey Vine

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Following the sketch, I blended a strip using Salvaged Patina distress ink, making sure I blended more heavily at the bottom of my card so that there would be a subtle ombre effect. I embossed a panel using the Spellbinders Falling Leaves embossing folder and then coloured the beautiful Poppystamps Monterey Vine die using regular distress inks and adhered it to my card. Finally I stamped a Hero Arts sentiment to complete my take.

Stitched Pumpkin Trio

Happy Saturday everyone!

First up  today is my entry for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Following the sketch, I created the central panel on my card using my rather dry Nuvo glitter paste and an Echo Park Paper stencil. While that was drying, I pulled out my Memory Box Stitched Pumpkin dies which I haven’t used for a while. I coloured them with distress inks – although the sketch only has two circles, I decided to throw caution to the wind and put all three on my card! I then stamped a sentiment from the My Monthly Hero Kit from September 2018 and adhered all the elements to my card base.

Leafy Blessings

Happy World Cardmaking Day everyone!

And it’s also ‘Originals Only’ day over on Instagram – a day when we show our support for all the wonderful designers who are constantly coming up with wonderful products for us all!

So here’s the card I created to thank just a few of the many companies who continue to inspire me.

I used dies by:

Memory Box (Jasper Leaves)

My Favorite Things (Birds of a Feather set)

Poppystamps (Whittle Oak Leaf)

Simon Says Stamp (Eucalyptus Leaves)

Stampin Up! (Boho Indigo die set)

Simply Graphic (Feuilles geometriques)

Creative Expressions (Elegant Arrangements)

Penny Black (Leaflets)

Hero Arts (sentiment)

I used the theme from the Global Design Project which is ‘leaves’.

Autumn Tree Triptych

Happy Friyay!

Today I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players .

I used four of my older die sets to create my take on the sketch – Leaf Canopy and Perfect Pumpkins by Memory Box and the Tree Triptych and Gourds and Pumpkins set from Poppystamps. The oldest is from 2011 and the most recent is 2016! I love how timeless these designs are! The sentiment is by Hero Arts.
