Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m playing along with the Inspirational challenge – what an inspirational photo challenge!

I’d been planning what to make since I saw the image last weekend but the week has been crazy and I had to make my entry quite quickly this evening to meet the challenge deadline.

I’m not sure I did it justice… it didn’t really turnout as I’d hoped….

Anyway, I used dies by Simon Says Stamp and Poppystamps and a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Bootiful!

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

When I saw the sketch, I thought of my Poppy Stamps Stick Frames die. It didn’t really work exactly with the sketch so I cut up the frames and arranged them separately on my card. The ghosts are from the Friendly Ghosts set by Memory Box and the sentiment is my My Favorite Things.

I embossed the background using a Creative Expressions folder.

Thank for stopping by!

Autumn Lanterns

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

Narelle has created a fabulous sketch that was just crying out for me to dip into my patterned paper mountain again – so I did!

I used the fabulous Chinese Lantern die from Poppystamps – it actually has 3 stems but I cut off one stem so that the die cut aligned with the card elements.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thank for stopping by!

Autumnal cottage scene

 

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I love this unusual sketch and was originally going to use a few die cut trees but as I was looking for the tree die, I stumbled across the Poppystamps Boddington Cottage die. I thought I could make it work with the sketch and got to work!

I didn’t do too much inlaid die cutting this time – just the cottage. For the trees, I coloured some card using my Daniel Smith Watercolours and then stuck my die cut on top before adhering the image to the card base.

The embossed sentiment is from the September 2018 Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit.

I’m also entering this into the current Poppystamps challenge – Anything Goes.

Thank for stopping by!

Santa’s sleigh

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge where their 400th anniversary celebrations continue!

This week’s sketch was the one used for challenge number 200…. and it’s really minimalist! I decided to make another festive card, using a die I had forgotten – the Pine Tree Border from Poppystamps, dated 2011! Hard to believe that’s 8 years ago now! Anyway, I cut a panel of white card using the die and stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment. I then masked off a circle on my card base and blended some distress inks to create a night sky. Maybe I should have gone a little darker, but let’s just imagine that the bright moon is making the sky seem blue, ok?!

I removed the masking paper and dabbed on a little watered-down distress ink to add some depth to the moon. I then stamped a Clearly Besotted Santa image over the moon. Finally I added my die-cut panel to my card base using some foam tape et voila, another Christmas card done! Yay!

Thank for stopping by!
