Autumnal cottage scene

 

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I love this unusual sketch and was originally going to use a few die cut trees but as I was looking for the tree die, I stumbled across the Poppystamps Boddington Cottage die. I thought I could make it work with the sketch and got to work!

I didn’t do too much inlaid die cutting this time – just the cottage. For the trees, I coloured some card using my Daniel Smith Watercolours and then stuck my die cut on top before adhering the image to the card base.

The embossed sentiment is from the September 2018 Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit.

I’m also entering this into the current Poppystamps challenge – Anything Goes.

Thank for stopping by!

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.
