Day 10 – 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 10 was Studio Katia. I don’t have any of their stamps but I do have a few of their dies and decided to use the Creative Stitched Window die for my take on Laura Volpes’s amazing tag.

I created a blended background with same distress inks that Laura used (Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean) and then trimmed it down before adhering the die cut window to the base.

I stamped and cut the Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins and adhered them to the tag, together with a sentiment by My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!

You totally did it

Hi everyone!

It’s been quite cloudy here so I decided to pull out some sunny Distress Oxide inks to play with today.

After creating the blended background, I added some water speckles and then die cut a Simon Says Stamp circle and sentiment. I used another scrap of card to blend some yellow ink for the fringe (cut using a Mama Elephant die).

The embossed sentiment is by My Favourite Things.

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (ink blending).

Thanks for stopping by!

Bold happy birthday

Hi everyone!

The snow is almost completely gone here after a horrible evening yesterday. Such a relief! We just don’t ‘do’ snow – and I certainly don’t!

Anyway, onto my card. I find ‘cutesie’ really difficult. I see all these gorgeous cutesie cards on Instagram, I buy the stamps and I just can’t seem to use them! Like the Mama Elephant little cat agenda… I got them as soon as they came out and they have sat untouched ever since! I’ve been really inspired by Ellenor’s beautiful creations – I can’t get over how many creative ways she has used the little kitty images! So today was the day I actually inked them up and started to use them.

I’ve also used a Simon Says Stamp die (with another background created with the glazed distress oxide technique) and so I’m entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge. I’m also counting this as my Work Your Stash Wednesday creation on Instagram as I used an unused stamp and die set and an unused embossing folder!

Thanks for stopping by!

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).

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).

Thanks for stopping by!
