Sweet Strawberries

Happy Saturday!

Today’s card is inspired by two challenges – the Casology challenge (cue word – juicy) and the Retro Rubber challenge (a summery photo inspiration).

I pulled out one of my older Magenta stamps, which I think I’ve had for about 3 years, maybe more…. but which I’m ashamed to say, I have never used! I’ve said it before, and I know I will be saying it again in future, but I am so grateful I found the Retro Rubber blog – it really inspires me to use my oft-neglected wooden stamp collection.

Anyway, I coloured the image using my Twinkling H20s and added some stickles to the flower. I cut out a square from some white card using a die by My Favorite Things and added a sentiment by Altenew (seriously, it took me longer to choose the sentiment than make this card! Couldn’t decide between punny eg ‘I’m berry sorry’ or more serious!).

I added the white card on top of my base card using funky foam for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!


Rainbow Flower Row

Hi Everyone!

The theme over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog is Rainbow – and here is my entry!

I used an old Magenta stamp that I’ve had for at least 5 years! I love how this challenge blog is helping me rediscover my forgotten gems!

Anyway, I coloured the flowers with my Twinkling H2O’s and added a touch of Stickles and a Clearly Besotted sentiment to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!



Golden Peach Trees

Happy Saturday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. We’re a little earlier this week as we are pairing up with the wonderful team over at Less is More for this challenge. The challenge will run for a fortnight and there will be one joint winner but AAA Cards and Less is More will have their own runners-up.

Anyway, the theme for our joint challenge is ‘one layer with a coloured card base’ and our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers.

For my card, I embossed an older image from Magenta Art Stamps with the fabulous Altenew golden peach embossing powder. I added some shading to the base of the trees using a white pencil and also stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment with white ink. Finally, to anchor my image, I dry-embossed a square frame.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards and Less is More blogs. At AAA Cards, we are also joined by Guest Designer Milka from who 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!


Beautiful day

Hi everyone! I’ve just found a great new-to-me challenge – the Retro Rubber challenge where we have to use a stamp that is least a year old! I still love using my old wood block rubber stamps and so I think I’ll be entering the challenge quite a bit in future!

Anyway, on to today’s card – I used a flower stamp from Magenta and a sentiment from Amuse Art Studio. Neither of them have dates on them but I think I’ve had them both for 7 years or so!

I’m entering this into the Case This Sketch challenge and also the Retro Rubber challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!


You’re the best!

Happy Mother’s Day to my lovely mum and all those celebrating today!

I used a gorgeous stamp by Magenta and some of my very old Chatterbox patterned papers to create this card.

This is also my colouring for Day 26 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge.

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – Layer It Up!

Happy Spring

Two posts in one day! Well I am playing catch up and so this is for Day 23 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. I coloured this gorgeous Magenta image with my Twinkling H2Os. It took me AGES to decide on a design – nothing seemed right! But I got there in the end!

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp and I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – Spring.
