My Mind’s Eye

Featuring My Mind’s Eye products – generally papers!

Let’s eat cake

Hello Everyone!

For this card, I stamped and cut some Simon Says Stamp cupcakes which I then coloured using my Twinking H2Os. I stuck them to a few layers of My Mind’s Eye papers and finally added a ‘Happy Birthday’ die cut also from Simon Says Stamp.

Side note: I popped into my favourite cupcake shop last week – the Primrose Bakery in London. I can honestly say they have the best cupcakes I have ever tasted and they always have ‘special’ varieties on the counter. Last week’s special was ‘rhubarb and custard’ and was my colour inspiration:

 

 

 

 

I’m entering this into a number of challenges: the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the Casology challenge (cake).

Glittery Yay

Hi There!

The Freshly Made Sketches challenge is celebrating 300 sketches this week and here is my take on their fabulous sketch.

I used a die from Clearly Besotted, plus a Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder and patterned paper from My Minds Eye.

After cutting out the ‘yay’, I coated it with sparkle embossing powder – this card really sparkles in real life – will add a close up later!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yellow rose

Hi everyone!

There’s another cute sketch over at the Case This Sketch challenge this week and I decided to use my Altenew Bamboo Rose set for my take.

I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2Os and added it to a die cut – which I had embossed using one of my favourite Taylored Expressions embossing folders.

To finish the card, I added a small sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

I’m also entering this card into the current Color Throwdown challenge – green, yellow, red and aqua.

Thanks for stopping by!

Orange Gerbera

Happy Friyay!

I was fortunate to win a Uniko set of stamps through the Less is More challenge blog last month and I chose the Gerbera set. They’re my first Uniko stamps and I was so surprised by the size of the set when it arrived – so much bigger than I was expecting! The images are great for colouring and I chose one for my entry for this week’s Freshly Made sketches challenge. I embossed the image and then coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. I added some paper from My Mind’s Eye and a sentiment from Hero Arts plus a few enamel dots to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!

Love cat

Hi everyone!

For today’s card, I used an older Art Impressions image which I coloured using my Twinkling H2O’s. The colour of the hearts is really close to the colour of the patterned paper in real life – I couldn’t capture it properly in a photo, unfortunately.

Anyway, I also used some of my older patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye, an older Avery Elle sentiment die and even a Martha Stewart punch which I think I’ve probably had for a decade!! I love using all the wonderful new products that companies are releasing, but it’s still so much fun to revisit older supplies too, don’t you think?!

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (Anything Goes/Art Impressions products) and as the As You See It Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!
