Yoga Butterfly

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches using products kindly send to me by Penny Black.

When I saw the sketch, I thought it would be perfect to showcase an image from the  New Adventures stamp set (30-902) – I love yoga since taking it up last year and this stamp set is perfect for me, although my poses don’t look anything like the yoga girls in the set!! Anyway, I stamped the girl with butterfly wings and fussy cut around it! I coloured her with my Twinkling H2Os and added some stickles.

Then I created a frame for her to sit in using distress inks and a die from the Framed die set (51-622)

I used the Textural die (51- 729) for the strip on the left side of my card base and adhered the frame and image. Finally I stamped a sentiment from the Yoga Builder set (30-714).

Thanks for stopping by!

Daisy Bunches

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m using Penny Black products to play along in the Just Us Girls challenge which has a theme of flowers.

To start with, I used the Slimline Zig Zag die set (51-733) to create a white frame which I adhered to my card base that I’d covered with some old patterned paper.

I then used the fabulous Daisy Delight die (51-676) to cut 15 daisies which I coloured using my Twinkling H2Os. I then adhered them to my card base , popping out of each of the three die cut windows.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from the Bunches of Love set (30-890).

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Big

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m using Penny Black products to play along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a virbant palette of pink, orange and green.

As I was going to use mainly dies, I decided to get inky first and made a few panels using distress inks and sprays which I then die cut. I used the fabulous wreath and butterflies from the Soaring die set (51-731) and leaves from the Garden Greens set (51-652). Can you see the shimmer on those leaves? That’s from the distress mica spray! I cut the flowers from the Cherry Blossom set (51-419), coloured them with distress ink and added a few white Nuvo drops.

I stamped a sentiment from the Love Big set (30-898) before splattering some green paint across the card base – I did cover the sentiment first though  because you never really know with random splatters, do you!!

Anyway, I then adhered all my die cuts to the card base and added a few gems and pearls to the butterflies to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Breathe

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches using Penny Black products.

As soon as I saw the New Adventures clear stamp set (30-902), I wanted it! I’ve mentioned before that I found yoga in 2021 and I have continued it… my daily practice is really part of my way of life now, and I love it! Anyway, I decided that the image of the girl doing cobra (or maybe that’s upward dog?!) would work perfectly with the sketch so I stamped it with my Frayed Burlap Archival ink and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. Then I fussy cut around the image – I left a small white border but later decided I didn’t want that so I cut right up to the ink – fortunately this is a really easy image to cut!

I then created a blended centre panel using distress inks and adhered the image using foam squares. I added a sentiment from the Yoga Builder set (30-714) and a few butterflies from the  Soaring die set (51-731) to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Egg Planters… again!

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along in the April Four Seasons Challenge using Penny Black products. The challenge has a fabulous spring/Easter inspiration board and I knew that I wanted to ink up the beautiful Delicate cling stamp (40-832) again before Easter.

Last time I only used part of the stamp, but I was determined to use all of it this time! I decided to use a square card base so that I would still have plenty of space around the image!

I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2O paints and added some stickles to a couple of the plants for extra sparkle! As it was drying, I stamped out the sentiment from the Spring Day set (30-805) and fussy cut around it before adhering it to the card.

I felt that the card still needed a little something, but the addition of a few sequins didn’t quite do it…. then I remembered the fabulous new Vintage Touch die set (51-730)! I chose a spindle, die cut it a couple of times and adhered it to the card! And hey presto, it finally felt ‘finished’!

Thanks for stopping by!
