Day 12 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

Lawn Fawn was the sponsor for Day 12. Great opportunity for me to use some of my cutesy Christmas stamps that don’t get much use at all!

Samantha C was my inspiration for this tag – I loved the colour she used for the background of her cute scene and tried to replicate it her with some distress oxide ink as I didn’t have the patterned paper!

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Making – Day 1 Holiday Backgrounds

Hi everyone!

Online Card Classes’ Merry Maker class kicked off yesterday and I tried all three of the techniques from the class.

First up, Kristina Werner’s Holiday Bokeh Background. When I saw this video, I thought I would try this first. It has all the elements I love – blending, ink lifting, embossing. I blended three distress oxide inks – Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo and after lifting some of it, I embossed almost all the snowflakes from the Simon Says Stamp Lots of Snowflakes set. Finally I added a sentiment also from Simon Says Stamp.

I’m going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge – ‘Anything Goes’ and the Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday challenge.

 

Next, Jennifer McGuire’s Snow Flurry Background. OK so you know how sometimes, you’re a bit… reluctant… to try something new and you end up loving it? Well, that’s what happened to me with this card!! In fact, I wasn’t even sure I would try this when I first watched the video. ButI decided this class is all about stretching yourself and learning new techniques so I tried it – and I am so glad I did!

Wow! Just wow!

Watching the blue powder melt into the silver brought back all those memories of heat embossing for the first time! It’s so magical! When I started crafting, my mum and I bought lots of different coloured embossing powders to share. They’ve been at the back of our cupboards for a LONG time but I pulled mine out yesterday… and after this, well let’s just say, I will be seeing a lot more of those coloured powders! The background stamp is by Penny Black and I used a Savvy Stamps sentiment die stuck on vellum to finish it off.

Finally, Cathy Zielske’s Cover plate die background/non-traditional colours. This was such a quick and easy card to make! I took on the challenge to use non-traditional colours and blended three distress oxide inks (Broken China, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade) for my background.  I tried so hard to avoid making a rainbow, but it looks like I didn’t really succeed, doesn’t it? Anyway, I used a Lawn Fawn cover plate and an Avery Elle sentiment die, which I cut using some glitter paper which I thought I would NEVER use. It was in a DCWV paper pad and I thought it was just too bright for me! Ha! Honestly, it is too bright for me, but worked well for this card.

Kaleidoscope card

Hello everyone!

I loved seeing how the super-talented Debby Hughes used the Simon Says Stamp Kaleidoscope stamp and she was my inspiration for this card.

After embossing the image in white, I coloured over it with four distress inks (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, abandoned coral and frayed burlap) and then added a coat of Gansai Tambi light gold. It created such a fabulous shimmer! I’ll definitely be using it more often!

I added some vellum and a yellow/orange panel that I had embossed with a Studio Carabelle embossing folder. I added a Lawn Fawn sentiment and lots of sequins to finish it off!

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge and also the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – ’emboss like a boss’!

You rock!

Hi everyone!

The current AAA Cards challenge is embossing – could be dry embossing, heat embossing or both! I chose to do both!

I covered a Cuttlebug embossing folder with ink to create the embossed white star background which I then cut using a start Lawn Fawn die. I then covered the stars with some Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for a bit of shimmer.

I added a sentiment from Krumspring stamps which I had heat embossed using sliver embossing powder.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday, Daffodil!

For this card, I used one of my favourite stamps by Penny Black and coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os. I trimmed a panel and then added the cross stitched embossing to two sides using a Lawn Fawn die. The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted and the patterned paper is from My Mind’s Eye.

I’m entering this into the Penny Black and More Challenge – spring and also the current Casology challenge – ‘season’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Easter

 

Happy Easter everyone!

Here’s another one of my Easter cards which I made using dies from Simon Says Stamp, My Favorite Things and Lawn Fawn and lots of glitter paper.

As I used the colour palette from this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, I’m entering this card into that challenge, together with the current SSS Flickr challenge (‘sparkle and shine’).

Thanks for stopping by!
