Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 23 was Penguin Palace. There was so much inspiration from the designers! I particularly loved Bobbi’s tags – all that texture!

For my tag, I created a base using my new Rustic Wilderness distress oxide and black soot oxide. I then applied Nuvo embellishment mousse using a Uniko stencil. Finally I added zillions of branches cut from a Poppystamps die and added a sentiment from a very old Hero Arts wood-mounted set!

AAA Cards Along the edge challenge with snowflakes twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using just one edge of your card. Our optional twist this time is ‘snowflakes’. Uniko is our sponsor.

When I saw the optional twist, I knew I wanted to use my Poppystamps Snowflake Breeze die for this challenge. I couldn’t believe it when I went to my freshly-organised festive die boxes…. the die wasn’t there! Isn’t that always the way?! So then I began a frantic search for the die.. Fortunately it didn’t take too long to find it in a random box of supplies!

I cut the die from some navy cardstock before adhering it to an old ink blended panel. I then put the whole section onto a navy card base, overlapping the die cut along the edge and adding a Hero Arts sentiment.

While I made this card with the portrait orientation in mind, I think it also works as a landscape card… which one do you prefer?

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

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 19 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 19 was Waffle Flower. I loved the floral inspiration by Maria and used a Penny Black Stamp and word die by Poppystamps for my tag as I don’t have many Waffle Flower products.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thoughts Owl

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Hues challenge! The colour palette this time is yellow and kraft.

I actually remembered this challenge deadline on Saturday afternoon and adapted what I was using for my entry – the card I was working on is below. I used the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero November 2020 kit which crossed the Atlantic so fast and arrived yesterday! I was so excited to get it so quickly! Thank you Hero Arts! Anyway, the background die is by Poppystamps and I used a Mama Elephant sentiment.

For my original card using this kit, I added a Hero Arts sentiment from a super sentiment stamp set that I really must use more often – I had forgotten how versatile this set is!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 3 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi there!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year.

The sponsor for Day 3 was Altenew. I love Altenew and have all their inks and quite a few older florals and dies… but I don’t have much from their recent releases. However, I still managed to use some Altenew product for this card.

I loved the tags made by the creative team and decided to use Norine‘s inspiration for my take. The embossed sentiment, base tag and fronds are by Altenew and I also used dies by Poppystamps.

Thanks for stopping by!
