Deco roses

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday!

I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. I decided to use some older Poppystamps Deco Roses corner dies that I’ve had for eons! To die cut the roses, I used some mirror card and a left over background that I had created using Ken Oliver Colour Bursts and some Cosmic Shimmer pixie powder. I really must get inky and create some new backgrounds soon – it’s so much fun to just get inky at times, isn’t it?

Anyway, I embossed a Deco sentiment from Woodware and then assembled my card. Think this one took me longer to photograph than create! It’s so difficult to capture that pixie Powder shimmer!

Merry Whittle Christmas

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

Just thought I’d pop in and share I card I made using the super cute Poppystamps Whittle Deer! Have you seen the range? So cute and brilliant price point.

Anyway, I used the Memory Box Countryside Circle die to cut my base card. I then added an ink blended background behind the scene and added the Whittle Deer and a star.

I decided to add the kraft circle to frame the scene and then stamped a My Sentiments Exactly sentiment to complete my card.

I’m going to enter this into the current Poppystamps Challenge – Merry and Bright.

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.

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!

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!
