Hello Everyone!

I haven’t played along with many challenges this month but when I saw that the theme of the Memory Box / Outside the Box challenge was ‘trees’, I just had to play along! I have MANY tree dies…. and every year I buy more pretty must-have tree dies…. I can’t help myself!

For today’s card, I used my brand new Pine Tree collage die which I thought I could resist, but when I found it during a Black Friday sale last month, it just leapt into my basket! I also added the older Country Landscape die. The die is actually much wider than my card, but I cut it up so that I could get all the cabins in my scene. The join in the cardstock is hidden by a tall tree!

I used a colour palette from an interior design/colour combo book that I got for Christmas – I would never have thought of using Worn Lipstick and Tea Dye distress inks together for the sky! I’m hoping the book will help me to add more variety in my card designs in 2021!

The sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 26 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

Day 26 is a bonus day with My Favorite Things as sponsor. As usual, the designers had come up with some amazing inspiration and I was particularly taken by the two tags by Carol using the Delightful Deer dies.

I used some of my beloved Basic Grey patterned paper for the base and then added the cute deer cut from glitter paper! This came together so quickly but I love how the deer just pops against that fabulous paper!

I’ve loved this challenge even more this year! It’s been such fun stepping outside my comfort zone from time to time and using a variety of my festive supplies – old and new alike!

Thanks to Tracey and all the designers who made this such a fun event!

And thanks to you, of course, for stopping by!

Day 24 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 24 was Heffy Doodle and the team had many colourful tags – such great inspiration. When I saw the tree tag that Tallie created, I thought of the Tannenbaum cling stamp by Penny Black so decided to use that for my tag. The sentiment is from a set by My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 21 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 21 was Studio Katia. I don’t have any of their stamps but used stamps by Hero Arts and My Favorite Things for my tag which was inspired by Carol’s tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bottle Brush Tree Trio

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a beautiful colour palette again this week – it has a retro Christmas vibe to me – red, aqua and silver!

I always struggle a bit with aqua and often feel I go either too green or too blue. Today I have ended up on the bluer end of that spectrum, but it still looks aqua to me, what do you think?

I used my brand new Flora and Fauna Bottle Brush tree die for my card. Yep ANOTHER new tree die, I definitely have a problem with tree dies… no self control! Anyway, I haven’t been able to find this anywhere in the UK so I bought it from Impress Cards and Crafts in Seattle and crossed my fingers! It actually arrived very quickly, which was such a relief!

The tree holders are from a Penny Black set and the sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ghost Hugs

Happy Halloween everyone!

Here’s a quick card I made with the My Favorite Things Fab-boo-lous Friends stamp set and a wonderful background die by Winnie & Walter. I’ve been very drawn to cards with bright pink backgrounds recently so I HAD to do one of my own!

Thanks for stopping by!
