Floral Stem Collage

 

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. I decided to use a new-to-me die, the beautiful Floral Stem Collage from Poppystamps. As the flower bends into the right of the frame, I flipped the sketch and lined the die cut on the left side of my card!

I coloured the die cut with my Twinkling H2O paints before adhering it to a piece of Basic Grey paper. After adhering the die cut to my base card, I added a stamped sentiment from an older Hero Arts/Basic Grey collaboration set.

Christmas in July – Day 28

Hi Everyone!

I seriously can’t believe it’s Day 28 of my Christmas in July challenge! I can honestly say I have LOVED creating mainly festive cards this month! So much fun!

Today, I’m playing along with the Memory Box challenge. The theme is ‘striped cards’ and I decided to case one of favourite cards from last year, Dashing Through the Snow!  I cut and coloured the Swift Reindeer die from Memory Box using my distress oxide inks and Twinkling H2O paints. I used an Echo Park stencil to apply some distress ink to my base card before stamping a Hero Arts sentiment. I then repositioned the stencil on the card base and applied a layer of Nuvo glitter paste.

Once the glitter paste was dry, I adhered the reindeer to my card base to finish my card.

Christmas in July – Day 23

Hi Everyone!

It’s Christmas in July Day 23 and I’ve been playing with my Hero Arts supplies again today.

I used a sketch from another a new-to-me challenge, the Inspire Create Challenges. I decided to case a card I’d made last year, inspired by Yana Smakula. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Christmas Lights background and coloured it with my Prismacolour pencils before applying a layer of Nuvo Crystal drops on top. I die cut a circle from a piece of black card and adhered it onto my coloured image using foam tape. To finish off my card, I added a Hero Arts die cut and an embossed word from an older Simon Says Stamp set.

I’m also entering this into the current A Blog Named Hero challenge where the theme is Christmas in July.

Christmas in July – Day 21

Hi Everyone!

It’s Christmas in July Day 21 and I have stepped away from the die cutting… well almost! An embossed image is the focal point today, but I have lots of die cut elements!

I’m playing along with a new-to-me challenge, the Global Design Project, which has a fun sketch this week. I embossed a sentiment stamp from Hero Arts and adhered it to a card base that I’d covered with some older paper from My Mind’s Eye. To finish off my card, I added some glittery poinsettia cut using the Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade die.

I’m also entering this into the current A Blog Named Hero challenge where the theme is Christmas in July.

Christmas in July – Day 15

 

Hi Everyone

It’s Christmas in July Day 15 and I finally got to play with my gorgeous festive dies! I chose a fun snowflake die from Simon Says Stamp and a embossing plate from Ellen Hutson for my take on the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I was originally intending to simply add the snowflake die to the centre of the card, but decided to make a shaker at the last minute!

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Christmas in July – Day 13

Happy Saturday!

Christmas in July Day 13 (Day 29 of the colouring challenge)!

For today’s card, I used the sweet Hero Arts Holiday Giraffe stamp from 2007 which I fussy cut and adhered to a base of blended Tumbled Glass/Stormy Sky distress ink. The sentiment is by Winnie & Walter.

Thanks for stopping by!
