Christmas in July 2022 – Day 31

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 31 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge.

It should come as no surprise that I chose the middle row – die cutting AND a chance to use some of my patterned paper mountain? Yes please! I chose an older die by Lil Inker Designs, a few sheets of blue patterned paper and got to work! It’s quite weird that my card for Day 31 uses the same technique that I used  for Day 1! The sentiment is by Mame Elephant.

Thanks A Latte!

Hi there!

Next up today, I’m playing along with the sketch challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I used dies by Simply Graphic together with a Lil Inker Designs sentiment and a Echo Park stencil. I decided to use the colours from the Color Hues challenge but I got confused with the closing time for the challenge so didn’t submit that in time!

Thanks for stopping by!


Hi, Hi Butterfly!

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has a lovely colour combo – grey, lavender and black.

I created a background panel using watercolours and Distress Oxide ink. I must confess I spent far longer on this than I should have. I couldn’t quite get a colour mix that I felt was representative of the combo. Eventually I was satisfied and cut the panel with the beautiful Lil Inker Designs Butterfly Cover Up die. I adhered the die cut to a black card base and inlaid some glitter card. Finally I added a sentiment, also by Lil Inker, to complete my take.

Rosy Hi

Hi Everyone!

I’m sneaking in a last-minute entry to this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I used the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp Modern Rose Blooms Background stamp which I coloured with distress markers and then spritzed generously with water. This is actually the second impression – I often feel they turn out better than the initial impression.

The sentiment is by Lil Inker Designs.

Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 23 was Lil Inker Designs. I loved seeing Tracey use the circle wreath die, which I have, but I decided to use the Baubled Tree die. Kim Heggins’s colour palette provided the colour inspiration!

I created a smooshed background using Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick distress inks and then added the Lil Inker Designs Tree which I’d cut from white glitter card. The sentiment is by Ellen Hutson.

Thanks for stopping by!



Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards! This fortnight’s theme is geometrics’ and our sponsor is Uniko.

This was quite a challenge for me. I knew I wanted to use inlaid die-cutting with the cool triangle dies that I bought from Simply Graphic a few months ago AND incorporate the colour combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (aqua, black and white). But the design…. well that was a real challenge! I tried so many different versions and decided on this super-CAS layout in the end. The ‘hi’ die is by Lil inker Designs and I replaced the dot above the ‘i’ with a triangle from one of the unused black die cuts to reflect the theme!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Carol from CarolG Creates. She has some fabulous creations – you must check out her site!

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