Hi everyone!

There’s a really strong colour combination for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge – red, black and white. My mind was whirring with so many possibilities for my take on this!!

In the end, I decided to use the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I cut a circle from a black panel and used my Nuvo aqua shimmer pen to add a bit of shimmer to the white background exposed by the circle. I used an older Memory Box die to cut some glittery red paper and attached this to my card. Finally I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment to finish it off.

Starting to feel like Autumn

There’s definitely a touch of Autumn in the air! Leaves are beginning to fall and I think that the days are feeling a little shorter.

For today’s card, I used the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, but instead of 3 die cuts, I chose a Memory Box stem die with three seed heads. Hope this is OK for the challenge!

I created a background panel using some distress stains and then added a Concord & 9th sentiment to finish it off!

I’m also entering this into the current Memory Box challenge which has the theme ‘falling for fall’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Way to go!

Hi Everyone!

This week’s Casology challenge theme is ‘square’ and here is what I came up with!

I cut an inked background with a Memory Box die and inlaid the pieces into the frame that I’d cut from glitter paper. I really wanted to add more bling, but I’m hoping to add this to my woefully small supply of male cards, so I just stamped a simple sentiment from Hero Arts to finish it off.

Tropical giraffes

Hi everyone!

After watching the Online Card Classes Rainbow Maker videos for today, I was itching to get ink smooshing, but I also wanted to do a card for this week’s Less is More challenge (tropical colours). So I tweaked my rainbow a bit (but that’s ok, right?) and came up with a smooshed background using Altenew’s inks. I used the gorgeous giraffe dies from Poppystamps and a couple of dies from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp to complete my card, which I’m also entering into this week’s Casology challenge (safari).

Pierced Thanks

Hi there!

This week’s Less is More challenge is ‘pierce your project’ – hmmm…. I don’t ‘do’ sewing and didn’t really have any ideas for my eyelets and brads… so I turned to my trusty die collection and found a few that pierce the paper. That’ll fulfil the challenge, right!

Anyway, I coloured a floral die cut from Memory Box and stuck it to a base I’d cut with an Avery Elle die. I added an Avery Elle sentiment stamped in distress ink and a few mini pearls to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!

Noteworthy Neutrals

Hi everyone!

The challenge over at the Memory Box blog this month is ‘noteworthy neutrals’ and here is my take using three Memory Box dies (Fresh Foliage, Contempo Birds and Thanks).

I created the black/grey card using Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and couldn’t resist spritzing some Distress Mica Spray on it! This card shimmers so much in real life!

Thanks for stopping by!
