Day 14 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 14 was Lawn Fawn. I love Lawn Fawn stamps, but tend to admire them from afar as I’m not really a cutesy crafter. I do have a few sweet critter sets though! I loved Mindy’s tags and used them for my inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Fall

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

So many different products/brand on this little card! I embossed some Basic Grey paper with a Darice folder and then adhered a stamped Penny Black image. I added some ink blended leaves (Lawn Fawn) and a squiggle die cut by Simply Graphic before adhering the Hero Arts sentiment.

AAA Cards Along the edge challenge with furry twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using just one edge of your card. Our optional twist this time is ‘dogs and cats’. Craftyscrappers is our sponsor.

This was an interesting twist for me! Most of my loved ones are cat lovers so I have lots of feline stamps and dies, but very few dogs. I do, however have a cat/dog die set from Simply Graphic. I’ve used the cat die a lot but never used the cute dog. Well now is his time to shine….sort of! Cats still outnumber dogs here!

As my crafty time is short at the moment, I decided to adhere coloured cardstock behind each die cut rather than do inlaid die cutting. I was originally going to just do a couple of colours, but I ended up channelling Laura Fadora and using rainbow colours!

The sentiment is by Lawn Fawn.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Megan, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Non-traditional Christmas wishes

Hi Everyone!

November has been a super-busy month for me and I can scarcely believe it’s December. I’m so grateful that I was able to grab some time in the craft room today! I decided to play along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge but when I was halfway through my creation, I realised that I had used a couple of the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge so I added some silver and pink snowflakes to cover all the colours in the combo (turquoise, green, pink and silver)!

I used an older stamp and die set by Marianne Designs and stamped and embossed the large Christmas sentiment with sparkle embossing powder before cutting it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the ‘wishes’ in silver ink and adhered the die cut on top of a little silver cotton before adding a few die cut snowflakes.

Thank for stopping by!

Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

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

Pink & Main was the Day 9 sponsor. I don’t have any of their festive stamps  but I decided to use the cute owl tags by Zsofi as my inspiration. The owl is by Stampendous and I also used a My Favorite Things sentiment plus some Lawn Fawn die cut snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Floral Silhouette

Hello!

I’m here with my second  Crafts-U-Love DT post for the quarter.

This time, I received the fabulous Penny Black Floral Silhouette stamp set* and a pack of Lawn Fawn ink cubes*. You can see the other cards I made with these products here.

Crafts-U-Love has kindly given me a discount code for you to use for these products – just add LUCIE20 at checkout.

Today I wanted to share some very simple cards I made using repeat stamping.

First up, a good luck card. I selected the leafy frond image and got stamping! Originally I had envisaged it in the soft yellow ink… but once I had covered my card, I felt it was a little too subtle. So I tried a navy/coral combo that I really liked – much more bold! Which one do you prefer?

By the way, the little flower and dot stamps are from previous DT packages – they were from Pinkfresh Studio and Julie Hickey stamp sets. I also added some coordinating Nuvo drops.

The next card I created uses a technique I like to call ‘Baby wipe watercolouring…

I covered a piece of watercolour paper with the Penny Black flower and stem image, using the Lawn Fawn inks. I trimmed the panel to size and then spritzed it with water. I then took a baby wipe and dabbed each image in turn. This process softened the colour without distorting the image too much. In the second photo above, the image on the left has had the ‘treatment’ – I really like the muted effect.

I turned this into a card, by cutting a panel from the centre before adhering the frame to my card base. I adhere the centre panel using some foam tape to raise it. Finally, I added a Creative Expressions die cut to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
