Happiest of Birthdays

Hello there!

After days and days of making heart/love/friendship cards, it felt good to pull out some different supplies today.

For this card, I used image dies from Simply Graphic plus a sentiment stamp from My Favorite Things which I stuck to a kraft tag cut with a Penny Black tag die.

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day 2018

Hello and ‘Happy Heart Day’ people! I love that phrase, but haven’t found it on many stamps at all, sadly. The one on today’s card is from an older Stampendous set that I’ve had for many years. Probably a decade!!

I’m playing along with the current Penny Black and More challenge (Love, Hearts and/or flowers), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut) and the Work Your Stash Wednesday challenge over on Instagram – the theme is red and pink. Perfect for a heart card!

In addition to my lovely sentiment stamp, I used dies from Penny Black – I bought the heart dies just after Valentine’s Day last year, can’t believe I am only getting round to using them now!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love You. Mean It.

Hi there everyone!

For today’s card, I pulled out an older Penny Black heart border stamp from my wood mounted stamp collection – it’s been quite a while since I used it and I enjoyed inking it up again!

I blended a little Tumbled Glass distress ink before I stamped the image and then added Bundled Sage afterwards.

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

I used Delicata shimmer inks for the image and sentiment – I just love that shimmer!

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch Challenge and also the Work Your Stash Wednesday challenge over on Instagram.

Purple winter birds

Hi everyone!

I love my old wood-mounted rubber stamps, I really do! Yes, they take up a lot of storage space and you can’t ‘restamp’ an image like you can with a cling or clear stamp, but I still love them and could never part with them! I have a storage system that works well for me, it’s just that with all the new crafty stuff being released each month, they don’t get as much ‘airtime’ as they should!

And this Christmas has been no exception unfortunately. I’m going to make a conscious effort in 2018 to use at least one of my old wood-mounted stamps a week!

Anyway, on to today’s card! This week’s Less is More challenge is ‘birds/feathers’, so I pulled out this older Magenta image which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils. The purples look more vibrant in the photo than they are in real life. I think I need to revisit my light setting!

Anyway, I cut some of my older patterned paper with a banner die and then stuck the image panel on top. To finish the card off, I added a Penny Black sentiment and some Nuvo glitter drops.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blue and green challenge

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I played along with the Merry Monday challenge! This week was a colour challenge – blue/green/white or silver or vellum. I always find blue and green rather difficult to use. Not sure why, I just do! So I decided I should play along this week!

I used a cute die from Poppystamps – but once I’d cut the card, I realised the glitter snowman just didn’t stand out enough against the regular whit card stock, so I added a little bit of distress ink to define him a little more. I love how glittery this card is!

Thanks for stopping by!
