Framed thoughts

Hi Everyone!

Happy Monday! I actually made it to the post office today – first time since lockdown… I bought a load of stamps and I’m looking forward to getting a bunch of cards out to friends! For today’s card. I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown challenge (pink, aqua, gold and white).

I started with a die cut tag which I altered by smooshing some Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I cut an Altenew frame from metallic gold cardstock. Having seen the photos, I’m glad I added the gold ribbon because you can’t really see that the frame is gold, can you? I added a couple of Simply Graphic die cuts and a few pink dots. The sentiment is by Poppystamps.

Deco Rose Hello

Hello Everyone!

I was flicking through my flower dies yesterday and spotted the Poppystamps Deco Roses die set and made a mental note to use it again soon, then I thought it would be perfect to use with one of my older Stampendous stamps for my take on the fabulous sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I heat embossed the deco image and coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints I also coloured the die cut roses with the same colour before adhering them all to the card base. To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Sugar Pea Designs which I stamped in Peeled Paint distress oxide ink – it seemed to match the green I used for the leaves perfectly!

Peony Delight

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday! It’s raining here today which is a great excuse to get crafty and ignore absolutely all my chores, not just the garden ones! I decided to play along with the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and combine it with the current Color Throwdown challenge (red, orange and green).

I used a couple of older dies from Poppystamps releases in 2016 – the Peony Delight die (coloured with Twinkling H2Os) and the Daphne Butterfly (cut from vellum). The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

I’m also adding this to the June Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘clean and simple’.

Thank for stopping by!

Winged Things

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with another challenge by a favourite company, Poppystamps.

The theme for the May Poppystamps Challenge is ‘winged things’, so I went through all my butterfly dies before finally settling on the Emelia Butterfly trio set. I cut the butterflies from an ink blended panel I created a few weeks ago and added them to a card base I created from another inked background panel and a background die from Frantic Stamper. I added a sentiment by Clearly Besotted to complete my card.

Thank for stopping by!

Happy Easter 2020

Happy Easter Everyone!

Easter may be weird this year… and I certainly haven’t been able to make my usual Easter cards but I am happy I managed to make one this morning!

I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge where the colour combo is orange. green, pink and yellow!

I used a couple of Poppystamps sets for my card – the Folk Decorated eggs and happy Easter sentiment dies.

Thank for stopping by!
