Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

I’m playing along withTracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 9 was Paper Sweeties. I must confess, I have never heard of the brand so spent a good while on their website looking at their fab goodies! I really liked Lisa Bzibziak’s tag using patterned paper and die cuts so I got to work with some of my oldest Basic Grey patterned paper and dies from Impression Obsession and Lawn Fawn. I finished off the tag with a Hero Arts Sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn colour

Hi everyone!

The Color Throwdown challenge has another fabulous colour combination this week – rust, green, orange and aqua! They were such fun to play with and I ended up creating two cards!

I used Impression Obsession’s background fancy leaf stamp with distress inks for both cards. For the first card, I trimmed down the background to fit a card base and simply added a rectangle of vellum and a Memory Box sentiment die. I added a few sequins to finish it off.

For the second card, I embossed a piece of cardstock using a Spellbinders embossing folder. I cut my stamped panel with an Essentials by Ellen die and then added a Concord and 9th sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Believe in Yourself!

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is ‘add a sentiment’ with a focus on Impression Obsession products.

I love Impression Obsessions sentiment stamps – and have quite a few so I wanted to create another entry for the challenge!

For this card, I created an ink blended background with my distress inks. I then added some Hero Arts die cut butterflies that I had left over from this card that I made last week. Finally I added a fabulous Impression Obsession sentiment to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!

All together

Happy Saturday!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is ‘add a sentiment’ with a focus on Impression Obsession products.

I love Impression Obsessions sentiment stamps – so many of them make me chuckle and this one seems very apt for me at time… hopefully you can relate!!!

Anyway, I added it to a background I had created ealier this week when trying out my new Tonic Studios Nuvo Glimmer Paste with a Dylusions stencil. Love these pastes! Although the pink is a quite bright for me in real life!

Words Take Centre Stage

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ‘Word take centre stage’ and Uniko is our sponsor.

When I saw the theme I immediately thought of my sentiment stamps from Impression Obsession. I love this Journey stamp and really wanted to use it as I think it is so powerful – although I must confess, I did find it quite challenging to work into a CAS card! In the end, I kept it very simple with just a raised panel and a couple of Penny Black die cuts. I did create a few cards using this stamp, which I’ll share at some point!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards in the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Nonni from Nonni’s Handmade Cards. She has some breathtaking creations on her site – please drop by and take a look!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Happy Anniversary!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited  to tell you that I have joined the AAA Cards design team! You can meet my talented teammates and see their fabulous creations on the AAA Cards blog.

The theme for the next fortnight is RESIST and Happy Little Stampers is our sponsor. For my card, I used a stamp by Seth Apter/Impression Obsession to create my heat-embossed background. I blended distress inks over the top and then rubbed the excess ink from the image. I accidentally used a cloth that I had also used to rub off some perfect pearls on another project and some of the shimmer stuck to my background! Gotta love shimmer! What a happy accident!

Anyway, I cut out some hearts using a Memory Box die and stuck them in the middle of a rectangle that I had embossed on my base card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Jasleen from hapilyevacrafter. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!
