Impression Obsession

Heart stems

Hello friends!

I am so honoured to be the Guest Designer over at the Case This Sketch challenge this week.

There’s a fabulous new sketch to play with – I had a lot of fun coming up with my card!

I cut four thin strips of cardstock to create an ombre-effect base. I then cut the Impression Obsession heart stems and added four of them to my card. Finally I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to finish off my take on the sketch.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 2019

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the current Case This Sketch challenge.

I used a sketch to create a card for my dear dad – and I included glitter card and glitter nuvo drops! The only time of year that I can use glitter on his card!

I embossed an old wood-mounted stamp by Impression Obsession – I’m determined to use my wood-mounted stamps more frequently this year!

I also used an embossing folder I got from Michaels last April.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Pumpkin’s Advice

Good morning everyone!

This week’s colour palette over at the Color Throwdown challenge is very me – rust, dark teal and cream! It also feels quite autumnal so I decided to ink up my Penny Black pumpkins stamp again. I only ever seem to use it at this time of year (here’s how I used it last year) which is a shame because it is so fun to colour.

I coloured the pumpkins using distress ink (rusty hinge and fired brink) and then masked them off before I stamped an Impression Obsession background stamp using Stazon teal ink. I embossed a sentiment from Riley and Co and finished off the card with a few Nuvo drops and some stickles!

I’m also entering this into the Penny Black holiday challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovecats

Hi there everyone!

I haven’t been able to spend much time in the craftroom recently but I have been able to make this card for my mum and dad’s anniversary yesterday.

I heat-embossed the Impression Obsessions lovecats stamp and then blended regular distress ink on top. I cut a heart from a separate piece of card using an Essentials by Ellen heart die and adhered it over the cat image using foam tape.

To finish off the card I added a sentiment from My Favourite Things and some hearts cut using a Memory Box die.

Belated Happy Anniversary to my lovely parents!

Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrating Hollyhocks!

Hi All!

So, the other day, I saw Joanna use the Impression Obsession hollyhocks die on a beautiful card – and knew it was time for me to get the die. I had been coveting it for over a year. And guess what, I couldn’t find it anywhere online….

Yesterday, I went to a craft show and was looking through some dies when I FOUND it. Funny thing was I had completely forgotten about it! Anyway, the added bonus was that it was on sale, so big LucieG smiles all around.

I decided to use it for my entry into this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and cut it from cream card before painting with my Twinkling H2Os. Look at that shimmer.

I also used some Penny Black dies that I have had for AGES and a sentiment from a set by Winnie & Walter.

Thanks for stopping by!

Purrfect Birthday

 

Hi Everyone!

I have the honour of being the GD over at the Case This Sketch challenge. This week was a throwback sketch from a few years ago – before I discovered the challenge! I had LOTS of ideas for this one as it’s wonderful for creating CAS cards, don’t you think?

Anyway, for my card, I used some of my patterned paper mountain plus some cute kitty dies from Impression Obsession and a sentiment from Altenew.

There’s lots of inspiration over at the Case This sketch blog – I hope you can play along!

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (a trio of something).
