Christmas in July 2020 – Day 1

Hello everyone!

Last year, I dedicated July to Christmas and reaped the benefits in November/December when my life got super busy and I had no time for cardmaking! I LOVED having a good supply of cards to send to all my friends. After all the challenges of 2020 to date, I have been REALLY looking forward to this July and LucieG’s Christmas in July 2020. Plus I have a nice break from work planned this month. Hurrah!

So, for Christmas in July Day 1, I pulled out the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Alicia Snowflake to cut a panel created with Distress Oxide inks. using the sketch from the current Case this Sketch challenge, I then embossed a panel using a Crafter’s Companion folder. Finally I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant and a few gems to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday! Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

It’s another sketch that reminds me of the London Underground but I decided to use the old Simon Says Stamp Scribble Heart and Arrow die set instead of a circle. When I saw the die set in my collection, I thought it was probably 8+ years old, but it turns out it was made in 2015, so not THAT old. I guess with ‘fast craft’, some things feel a lot older as they disappear quickly.

Anyway, I cut the heart from an ink blended panel and extended the arrow so it ran the width of my card. I stencilled some glitter paste on the card base before adding the die cuts and finally added a Mama Elephant card to complete my take.

Thank for stopping by!

Blue birthday butterfly

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with a couple of challenges – the Color Throwdown challenge (pink, orange and blue) and the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

I die cut three strips from some orange/pink patterned paper by Basic Grey and adhered them to my card base.  Then I used the gorgeous Drifting Butterfly die from Memory Box to cut the butterfly from some more Basic Grey paper and added it onto my die-cut strips. Finally I added a few gems and Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my take!

Thank for stopping by!

Hello Friend card

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

I spent a long time tidying my craft room over the festive break and enjoyed seeing some supplies that haven’t been used for a while. One of the background dies I know I wanted to use again very soon was the Simon Says Stamp Outline Floral Frame die. I thought it would be perfect for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

As you can see, I actually strayed away from my usual Twinkling H2O/pastel go-to combos and used some Nuvo alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils to colour the flowers and leaves.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant and I also used one of the butterflies from the Memory Box Pinpoint Butterfly Trio die set.

Thank for stopping by!

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has a fun final combo for 2019 – lime green, hot pink and white.

Here’s what I came up with using the fabulous Pretty Pink Posh Christmas Tree and a few fluffy pompoms a la Laura Fadora!
