Easter Greetings Chicks

Happy Good Friday!

Well I’m feeling very confused as it has felt like a Saturday to me all day today – nice to have a bonus tomorrow!

Anyway, today I’m playing along with theme challenge at The Paper Players.

As it’s almost Easter, I felt I had to choose either chicks or bunnies for the animal theme – and I ended up using Tim Holtz’s fabulous Colorize Chick die set.

The nest is by Memory Box and I added a Reverse Confetti frame and Pretty Pink Posh sentiment.

A challenging combo

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown ! Now I have to confess that the palette was very challenging to me. I’m not sure why… maybe the graphic… maybe just the combo… I really struggled with the aqua as I usually choose a lighter shade when using that colour… but in the end, I stopped overthinking it and just used Peacock Feathers which looked close to the colour in the graphic!

I didn’t like the card I made yesterday so I redid something more ‘me’ after work this evening – I’m glad the challenge doesn’t close until 11pm UK time! I used a vase stamp by Stampin’ Up, stems from Simply Graphic and a frame by Reverse Confetti. The sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

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.
