Seeing purple

Hi there!

The theme for this fortnight’s Less is More challenge is ‘purples’ – my favourite colour! How could I not participate?!

I used lots of different supplies/brands for my card. I started with a warm dark purple base which I embossed with a Next Level folder from We R Memory Keepers. I added some stardust Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

The butterfly is part of the new Memory Box release and the word die is by Mama Elephant.

I’m also entering this into the current Casology challenge (glimmer).

Thanks for stopping by!

Big Bear Hugs

 

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘hug’! Here is my take using a stamp from Winnie & Walter and a sentiment die from Mama Elephant.

I coloured the bears with my Prismacolor pencils – I’ve still got a lot to learn with these , but I really love them. May need to invest in a bigger set soon! I added a touch of Tonic Nuvo Aqua shimmer to the tails – well bears have glittery tails, don’t they!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Simply thanks

Happy Saturday everyone!

I treated myself to an order from Simply Graphic on New Year’s Eve and it arrived this morning! Super fast shipping from France!

I just had to use my new dies today and here’s one of the cards I made! I used the colour combo from this week’s Colour Throwdown challenge (grey, ivory and black) and added a sentiment die from Mama Elephant.

I’m also entering this into the current Time Out challenge (thankful).

So many merry snowmen

Hi there!

I fell in love with Mama Elephant’s ‘So many Snowmen’ stamp the moment I saw the sneak peak on Instagram and snapped it up as soon as I could! I can’t believe it landed on my doormat a week ago and I am only just getting round to stamping it up!

Anyway, it was just as fun to colour as I imagined. I used my Twinkling H2O paints and also my Nuvo Aqua shimmer pen and this card is so shimmery in real life! The die is from Mama Elephant as well and I used ‘Christmas’ from a Simon Says Stamp set.

I’m going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rainbow Maker, Day 6 Cards

Day 6 of Online Card Classes’ Rainbow Maker class covered ‘additional rainbow ideas’. I tried out Kristina Werner’s rainbow dot art technique. I don’t have many colours of Nuvo drops, but I do have a lot of Ranger enamel accents as I snagged a bargain from Simon Says Stamp a little while ago, so used those.

Anyway, I wanted to stick with simple dots and thought my current favourite embossing folder from Studio Carabelle would provide the perfect template for this!

This was so much fun to do!! I finished off the card with a simple sentiment using a Mama Elephant die cut which I dipped into Rainbow embossing powder. Love the effect!

You are loved

Hi everyone!

I’m loving the new Mama Elephant release, aren’t you? The little kitties are so cute and such fun to colour.

For this card I used the ‘petaled pink’ colour palette from the Seven Hills Crafts monthly challenge. I really struggled when I tried to match up some purple cardstock to use as a base, but then I decided to create my own. Hope you can see the shimmer from the Twinkling H2O’s!

All stamps are by Mama Elephant.
