Potted Plant hugs

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This CAS card came together very quickly! I used the beautiful Penny Black Potted Plant die together with a sentiment from The Ton and an embossing folder by Taylored Expressions.

A basket of die cuts

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! I hope that link works! My home wifi provider’s setting are currently limiting access to blogspot addresses so I had to be creative with my links. Hopefully they’ll resolve the issues soon!

Anyway, back to the challenge! The palette this week is brown, red, green and orange.

I used a selection of dies by Simply Graphic, Penny Black and the Ton Stamps for my take.

Autumn Bounty

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Card Concept challenge.

They have a beautiful autumn scene for their inspiration – I was particularly drawn to the colours of the hydrangea flowers – mine are just like that right now. I love that hydrangea flowers are so pretty even after their summer moment of glory! Anyway, here is my card using dies by Memory Box, Concord & 9th and Penny Black.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cranberry Cardinals

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is kraft, cream and cranberry.

I immediately thought of a winter card when I saw the colour combo so I decided to play along with the CAS Christmas card challenge as well because the challenge theme this month is Christmas birds.

I used a older Memory Box die (Hadyn Twigs) and the cardinals from the Simon Says Stamp Chisholm wreath set. I used Fired Brick and Barn Door distress ink to colour the cardinals. They still look more red than cranberry in this photo though!

I added lots of Nuvo drops and a Hero Arts sentiment to complete my take.

Woodland Pumpkin

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is orange, kraft and black – perfect for this time of year!

So with orange in the combo, I just HAD to include a pumpkin in my card! I chose a stamp from my new Penny Black Hello Pumpkin set and blended some distress inks to quickly colour the pumpkin. I then lifted some ink with water and added some orange and kraft paint in places.

I chose a piece of distressed black paper as my base and adhered the Simon Says Stamp Woodland Rectangular Frame which I had cut twice to extend (the join is hidden by the pumpkin). I heat embossed the Hero Arts sentiment and then adhered the pumpkin and some die cut swirls to complete my card.

Happy Fall die cuts

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

So many different products/brand on this little card! I used the Penny Black Leaf Pattern background die for the large panel. I also wanted to use an old Simon Says Stamp die (Berkshire Leaf) for the strip on the sketch, but I felt it didn’t work with the intricate die cut panel… so I adhered it to a strip of the same coloured paper – I like how it turned out! I added a few Simply Graphic die cuts and a Hero Arts sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
