Spring Gems

Happy Saturday everyone!

So I was doing really well with my attempt to catch up with the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and then life suddenly got a bit busy!

Luckily I was able to spend a lot of time in my craft room today so I can start catching up. AGAIN!

Today, I’m playing along with an amazing colour challenge from the Color Throwdown. Rust, purple, grey and white. Isn’t that a great combo? Actually quite Halloween-like, but including grey rather than black softens the palette I think!

Anyway, I struggled to find a suitable wood-mounted stamps to showcase the palette properly… and then I came across my fabulous Spring Gems stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped the image using Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Rust and then coloured the dots using my Twinkling H2Os. I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant cut from glitter card and finished off the card with a few sequins – you can never have too much sparkle in my view!

Thanks for stopping by!

Orange Flower

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the latest sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I decided to move away from hearts and instead used a beautiful wood-mounted flower stamp from Magenta as my focal point, which I coloured for my Day 16 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. I played around with different ideas (leaves, smaller flowers) for the other two images until I came across my fun Hero Arts Quattros set – I liked the contrast between the images and decided on a stamp from that set instead!

I added some controlled ink smooshing and a sentiment from a Karen Burniston die to finish off my card.

Flower Tree

Hello everyone!

I’ve been playing with another older wood-mounted stamp from Hero Arts this morning! This one is called Flower Tree and is from 2009! I remember buying it from one of my local stamp stores! That was when I had 4 stamp stores within a 40 minute drive…. only one remains today, so sad

Anyway I used the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (red,orange and yellow). I was quite nervous about adding the splatters, but it worked out ok!! The sentiment is from Avery Elle.

Owls galore!

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re having a great weekend! I had one of those days today. You know when little tasks take forever and before you know it the whole day has just disappeared!

I did manage to get into the craft room for Day 9 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge and for my take on this week’s fun sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I used some of my MANY MANY owl stamps! All of these are from my wood mounted collection and are by Hero Arts. I finished off my card with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweetheart kitty

Hello everyone!

Today, I chose an older Magenta stamp to create my take for the current Case This Sketch challenge.

I was actually only using this image to practice with my Prismacolor pencils but I liked how the heart turned out so I decided to turn it into a card!

I had to improvise a bit with this card! I couldn’t find my small heart embossing folder so I ended up using a Hero Arts background die to emboss the heart background and then used the same die to cut a few glitter hearts to add to the card.

I’m also entering this into the following challenges:

The Paper Players – Love is in the Air

Creative with Stamps – Love

Allsorts – Love

Tweet Wishes

Hello everyone!

I decided to play along with the Addicted to CAS challenge which has a code word of ‘birds’ so for today’s card I used another Hero Arts Wood-mounted stamp, called ‘Bird Family’ from 2008!

I used the sketch and colours from the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge and Colour Challenge. Believe it or not, those birds are stamped on bright white cardstock! Honest! It’s so weird that the camera sees is as light blue. And I just don’t have the Photoshop Skills to correct the camera!!

Anyway stamping and colouring the birds, I embossed a section of card with the My Favorite Things Moroccan Lattice background stamp and smooshed some water colour over it. I then stamped a greeting, also by My Favorite Things and finally added a few dark grey glitter stars to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
