Autumn Owl

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge. I love the autumnal combo!

I used a couple of Penny Black clear stamp sets – Delicate Flowers and Acorns and Animals and coloured the images using my beloved twinkling H2O paints. To complete my card, I splattered some paint and added a sentiment from a 2018 My Monthly Hero set.

Christmas in July 2020 – Bonus Day

Hello All!

Well it’s the early hours of the first day of August! I can’t believe Christmas in July is over – I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge I set myself and I know I will be grateful to have all these cards in November when I will need them! I’ll carry on creating Christmas cards quite frequently too, at least I hope I will!

Anyway, as I enjoyed myself so much, I carried on with my Christmas crafting during 31 July so I’m calling this one my Bonus Christmas in July card!

I’m playing along with one of my favourite challenges – the Color Throwdown challenge. I thought this week’s colour palette (black, white and terracotta) would be perfect for a reindeer scene and this is what I came up with. I used dies by Memory Box, Taylored Expressions and Penny Black. I created a little interest to the night sky by applying some transparent texture paste through a stencil. First time using that and I like it! Very subtle but also nicely glossy in real life!

To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Mama Elephant.

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 30

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 30 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the Case this Sketch challenge.

As soon as I saw the sketch I thought ‘SNOWFLAKES!!’ and pulled out my favourite dies by My Favorite Things. I used some Echo Park patterned paper from my paper mountain and a sentiment from an older Penny Black set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 29

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 29 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at  CAS Colours and Sketches.

I used another Penny Black set today for the main image – this is from a much newer mini set called Nature’s Decor. I coloured it using my beloved Twinkling H2O paints and added a circle frame from Simply Graphic. The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set.

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 28

Hi there!

Welcome to Day 28 of Christmas in July! Today I’m playing along with the Jingle Bells challenge – they have an amazing colourful inspiration photo for their challenge and I was particularly drawn to the garland on the fireplace which I tried to replicate on my tree using mini pompoms I bought during a trip to the US last year.

The tree is an older one called Tannenbaum by Penny Black and I used a sentiment from a Hero Arts set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 19

 

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 19 of Christmas in July 2020!

It’s also time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using maximum white space; our sponsor is CraftyScrappers. Our optional twist is flowers.

As I’m doing Christmas in July, I turned to poinsettias for my chosen flower. I seriously have a LOT of poinsettia stamps and dies… I could probably do ‘A Poinsettia a Day in July’ and still not exhaust all the poinsettias I’ve amassed over the years.

Anyway, for my card, I used the Penny Black ‘Trinkets’ stamp set which I coloured with my Twinkling H2O paints before adding some Nuvo drops and a sentiment by Mama Elephant.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Sue, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
