Day 8 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 8 was Uniko – they have some fabulous stamps and stencils and the inspiration tags were brilliant! I don’t have any festive Uniko stamps at the moment so I decided to use an older stamp set – Family and Friends by Hero Arts – to create my take on Joyce Mehrberg’s amazing tags! I just loved how she used the fabulous tree stamp to create such a unique tag!

I stamped the large tree from the set using Broken China Distress Oxide ink and applied silver Stickles across them. I added a sentiment from the same set and then added a few glittery Whittle Trees from Poppystamps to finish off my take.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 6 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 6 was a new-to-me brand, Paper Sweeties – it certainly looks like they have some cute stuff, I may have to place an order soon!

I was inspired by the tags made by Lisa Bzibziak – the non-traditional colour combos were wonderful and when I saw the pile of cups, I thought of my Newton’s Nook Cup of Cocoa stamp set which I bought last year, but still hadn’t got round to using!

I coloured the cups using my Twinkling H2O paints and then fussy cut them. I added a Poppystamps sentiment die cut to the base of the tag and then adhered all the cups!

Thanks for stopping by!

City Haunts

Hello there!

The theme for the October Memory Box challenge is Halloween or candy. This was very tricky for me as I have a ton of Halloween dies by Poppystamps but very few by Memory Box, so I knew my entry would need some out of the box thinking!

In the end, I decided to use the Cityscape Nightline die to create a city Halloween scene. After cutting the skyline, I added a slope and fence cut using dies from the Wide Open Spaces set. I adhered the dies cuts to a background I created from yellow/orange distress inks. I’ve been making a lot of purple cards recently so wanted to do something quite different this time!

The next challenge was the ghosts. I don’t have any small ghost dies…. So I repurposed the Bitty Blooms set and added eyes/mouths to the upturned blooms!

To finish off the card, I added a few die cut pumpkins from the older Perfect Pumpkins set and added a Poppystamps sentiment to finish off the card.

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – take flight.

Thanks for stopping by!

Feline Batty!

Hello everyone!

Just popping in with a quick card that I made for the October Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘falling leaves and scary things’.

I chose the latter – although the cute batty feline doesn’t actually look too scary, does he?!

After stamping, cutting and colouring the images, I adhered them onto my new Benedetti frame. Isn’t it a gorgeous die? I LOVE art deco and just had to have it as soon as I saw it… well I really wanted most of the new Art Deco release, but had to exercise some self-restraint!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Autumn owls

Hello everyone!

I’ve been wanting to ink up my Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Wreath stamps for a while now and today was the day!

I coloured the wreath with my Twinkling H2Os and then cut it with the coordinating die. I created a watermark-effect background by stamping some of the single images from the set onto my card base in Versamark ink.

I then cut a couple of the Poppystamps Whittle Owls and coloured them with distress oxide inks. To finish off the card, I added a die cut sentiment from Memory Box.

Thanks for stopping by!
