Autumn handful

Hi Everyone!

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

I was originally going to create a cluster of little Christmas trees but I suddenly thought of the gorgeous elements in the Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Wreath set. I’ve used the wreath quite a few times, but those little elements are barely used! So I chose a few, embossed them in gold and coloured them using my Twinkling H2Os.

I smooshed some distress ink onto a card base and added a few paint splatters. I adhered the Hero Arts sentiment and then arranged my autumn elements!

Such a fun card to create!

Thank for stopping by!

Happy Autumn Border

Hi there!

I can barely believe that it’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! The weeks seem to fly by, don’t they? This fortnight we’d like you to create a one-layer CAS card and the optional twist is autumn. Our sponsor is Winnie & Walter.

Quite honestly, I’m a bit annoyed with myself. I love Winnie & Walter and had previously thought of the perfect set that I could use for my card. I completely forgot they were our sponsor when I made the card last week and ended up using the new Pretty Pink Posh Fall Borders stamp set instead.

If I get time, I’ll try to make another card with the set I’d planned to use.

Back to today’s card. I actually love making one-layer cards and this was so much fun to make! I coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints. I decided to use a Hero Arts sentiment but wanted to use an ink that was the same colour as some of the leaves. I was so chuffed to discover a perfect match (Cosmic Berry) – love my Altenew inks. I seem to have a colour for every occasion!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the super talented Joy D’Souza – you have to visit her blog – it’s jammed-packed with inspiration!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to share one of the cards I gave to my lovely mum today!

I stamped the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath in Antique Linen Distress Oxide and embossed it with clear powder.

I coloured it in and then die cut the wreath.  I used an Echo Park stencil to apply a few subtle hearts to the background before adhering the wreath.

Finally I added an Avery Elle sentiment… and a few small gems (AFTER I had taken these photos).

I’m entering this into the current CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Spring Blossoms

Hi everyone!

There’s a feeling of spring in the air today – I can see buds appearing across the garden!

So I felt it was right to pull out my Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms stamps and dies for my take on the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I coloured the flowers with Twinkly H2Os and Prismacolour pencils and arranged them on a rectangle of Basic Grey paper.

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Non-traditional tree

Happy Christmas Friday!

I loved how Lindsey from the Pretty Pink Posh DT used glitter card for her Pretty Pink Posh tree last month and decided to see what a white tree would look like! It’s so sparkly in real life!

I paired my tree with a My Favorite Things festive script background in non-traditional colours of distress oxide (dried marigold and vintage photo)!

I almost didn’t share this card here as the talented Erica from CaCaCraft just shared a lovely card using the same stamp and die… I decided to in the end as they look quite different! Plus I suspect we’re not the only 2 crafters to combine these gorgeous supplies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 26 – 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.

Day 26 is a bonus day with A Jillian Vance Designs as sponsor. As usual, the designers had come up with some amazing inspiration and I was particularly taken by two tags using a deer head with glasses! So quirky! Now, unfortunately I don’t have any glasses dies, but I decided to create my own take on Rosemary Dennis’s tag.

I used an old Tim Holtz/Sizzix die that I have had for AGES, but rarely use nowadays as it’s one of those thick BIGZ dies and has been banished to the depths of a cupboard. So glad I came across it by chance on Saturday and that I can use it so quickly after!

I added glitter ornaments from my beloved Pretty Pink Posh Festive tree die set and adhered the whole image to a tag cut from Basic Grey. Ah, I still miss Basic Grey! Just as well I have a small mountain of it still!

I’ve loved this challenge even more this year! It’s been such fun stepping outside my comfort zone from time to time and using a variety of my festive supplies – old and new alike!

Thanks to Tracey and all the designers who made this such a fun event!

And thanks to you, of course, for stopping by!
