Vase of Blossoms

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a super natural colour palette this week – rust, cream and brown!

I actually used mainly dies that I’ve bought over the past couple of months – the Marianne Designs Art Texture Squares and the Sizzix/Pete Hughes Ikebana die set, together with an older Impression Obsessions vase die and a Sugar Pea Designs sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 16 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 16 was Concord & 9th. I was absolutely blown away by the beautiful tag created by Lindsey. One of my favourite tags EVER! The dies! The colour combo! The wood slice! All gorgeous! My take uses the C9 wood slice stamp, dies by C9, Marianne Design and Memory Box and PRIMA FLOWERS! The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Water Jug bouquet

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is grey, green. kraft and white – perfect for nature-based cards!

To start, smooshed a little Moss distress ink to the bottom of my card base and then applied texture paste using a stencil by My Favorite Things. While that was drying, I got die cutting with a brand new-to-me Marianne Designs Water Jug die set – seriously, it only landed on my doormat on Friday morning! Love it when I use my new goodies straight away!

The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Non-traditional Christmas wishes

Hi Everyone!

November has been a super-busy month for me and I can scarcely believe it’s December. I’m so grateful that I was able to grab some time in the craft room today! I decided to play along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge but when I was halfway through my creation, I realised that I had used a couple of the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge so I added some silver and pink snowflakes to cover all the colours in the combo (turquoise, green, pink and silver)!

I used an older stamp and die set by Marianne Designs and stamped and embossed the large Christmas sentiment with sparkle embossing powder before cutting it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the ‘wishes’ in silver ink and adhered the die cut on top of a little silver cotton before adding a few die cut snowflakes.

Thank for stopping by!

Day 2 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

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

Ellen Hutson was the sponsor for Day 2 and I was so happy for the impetus to ink up some of my Ellen Hutson stamps. I chose the tag made by Michelle Ferguson as my inspiration and the sweet snow bear from the Bearware 2 stamp set. I even managed to use a piece of Basic Grey paper from my patterned paper mountain! The tag die is by Marianne Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Quirky Forest

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. This week, we have rose, slate and mint – what a beautiful combo!

I’ve been hunting for quirky tree dies for quite a while now and as soon as I saw the new tree die set from Marianne Designs, I knew I had to have them! I created a few background panels using Distress Oxide inks and sprays and cut out the trees. I then dry embossed a smaller white panel using a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and adhered the trees before sticking the whole panel to my card base. I added a Sugar Pea Designs sentiment and some stickles to complete my card.

Thank for stopping by!
