March 2022 Get Cracking on Christmas

Hello everyone!

It’s the third Thursday of the month (how is that even possible?!) and so it’s time for me to play along with Jenn Shurkus’s ‘Get Cracking on Christmas’. Today I’m using the colour palette from this week’s Christmas Card Throwdown.

What a fun combo! I really love it and I’m definitely going to use it again! Today, I chose to use the fabulous Triangle Trees stamp set from Reverse Confetti and dug into my patterned paper mountain. I heat embossed three tree stamps… I don’t heat emboss much nowadays but it’s as special as it was the first time I watched that powder melt many moons ago! Anyway, I arranged the three trees on a My Favorite Things sentiment circle and added a few gems to complete my card.

You’re sealiously amazing

Hello  everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the CAS challenge at The Paper Players.

The theme is wildlife – I have a LOT of older Hero Arts animal colour layering stamps that would have been perfect for this challenge but I kept thinking of this beautiful Simply Graphic seal die so I HAD to use it! I paired it with an Ellen Hutson background die and slipped an ink blended background behind it.

To complete my take, I added a sentiment by Reverse Confetti and a few die cut stars.

Day 5 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 5’s inspiration is Day 5, 2019. Click here to see the tag I made then!

This time, I decided to use Amy’s inspiration. The stamps I used are by Reverse Confetti and I used a circle die from Paper Rose.

Farmhouse Wreath smiles

Hi again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge.

First I created a soft panel with regular distress inks and cut it with a rectangle die. I then stamped, coloured and cut the beautiful wreath from the Farmhouse Wreath set by Reverse Confetti. I’ve had this set for a while now but never got round to using it as it was a little smaller than I was expecting… but it’s absolutely perfect for the sketch this week!  To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Sugar Pea Designs.

Sealiously Amazing

Hello again everyone!

Next today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. It’s such a fun palette, but it did take me quite a while to decide what to create!

I had toyed with using this beautiful Simply Graphic seal die for another challenge this week, but in the end decided it would be perfect for this challenge. To create my little scene, I made an ink blended panel using a couple of distress inks (Seedless Preserves and Candied Apple) to create the razzleberry colour and cut a few Poppystamps Whittle Mounds from it. I then inked a blue square in the centre of my card base and arranged the mounds and seal.

To complete my take, I added a sentiment by Reverse Confetti.

AAA Cards One Corner challenge with create a scene twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using one corner of your card base only. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘create a scene’!

I had fun with this one! As the challenge spans Valentine’s Day, I knew I wanted to include that in some way as well as creating a scene. Inspired by this cute Frantic Stampers kitties die, I used Funky Fossil Designs’ Dry Stonewall stencil for the kitties to sit on and then softly blended some distress ink to create the moonlit sky. To complete my card, I added a few die cut hearts and my favourite Reverse Confetti sentiment – which I use every February without fail!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Chrissie – who has some amazing CAS inspiration on her blog – you must check it out!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
