Happy Love Day 2019

Sorry for the post overload friends – I have just been inspired to create Valentine’s cards this year!

Anyway, what would you do if you had a layover in Seattle? Head downtown or go to Impress Cards and Crafts? Yep, you’ve guessed it! When I had a layover at SeaTac last year, I hopped on a bus and took the short trip to Tukwila and spent a lovely couple of hours in Impress’s fabulous store there! So many craft goodies there! I bought this sweet heart die and Savvy Stamps sentiment stamp there! Making this CAS card today bought back a lot of happy memories from my little trip there!

Purple and Green should never be seen…

Hello everyone!

Well I’m not sure about the title of my post… I recall hearing it as a saying from somewhere but I disagree with it – as would some British sporting institutions!!

Anyway, onto today’s card! I’m playing along with the current Case This Sketch challenge and used an old wood mounted stamp by a company called Inca Rubber Stamps. I’ve googled them, but it looks like they don’t exist any more.

I embossed the heart images and then coloured them to match the shades in my Basic Grey background paper.

To finish off the card I added a sentiment from Savvy Stamps.

O Christmas Tree

Hello everyone!

I seriously cannot believe how fast 2018 has flown by, can you? All my favourite challenges are starting to take their festive breaks, including the Color Throwdown challenge. The palette for their last challenge of the year is a classic Christmas combo – green, red, white and kraft.

I used a fabulous tree die from Simply Graphic and cut it several times in kraft and once in green glitter card and adhered all the die cuts to the kraft card base.

I added a red glitter die cut sentiment from Savvy Stamps and a small dot of Nuvo glitter drops to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friyay people!

My mojo appears to have gone AWOL. I’ve tried to craft so many times this week, and have failed miserably. But look! I finally finished a card today! Hurrah!

I decided to use the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (lime green, green, aqua and eggplant) to create another Christmas card. The tree die is one of my very first Simon Says Stamp dies. I think it’s retired now, but I still love it!

I cut the tree and Savvy Stamps sentiment from eggplant cardstock although it looks quite brown on screen. It actually looks much closer in colour to the small bits of eggplant ink I added to my background panel, but they look quite different here.

Anyway, I’m also entering this into the current CAS Christmas challenge (tree).

Happy Birthday, Lovely

Hi everyone!

For Day 2 of the Daily marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge, I coloured this beautiful Concord & 9th ‘Hello Lovely’ floral stamp. I just don’t use this beauty enough.

I used my new Prismacolor pencils again – I am loving the learning process! Colouring with them definitely takes me longer than when I use my Twinkling H2Os but I love the texture!

Once I had finished colouring, I decided to add some hidden die cutting. I always find this so nerve-wracking as I always worry I’ll mess up the beautiful image, but this one worked out! Phew!

Thanks for stopping  by!

Cattail Triptych

Hi everyone!

Why is it that when you’re super busy, you have tons of ideas, but when you finally have time to craft, your mojo disappears? So annoying!

This took much longer to create than it should have done… hope my mojo returns soon!

I used dies by Simon Says Stamp, Savvy Stamps and Memory Box and adhered the die cut panel to a background I created using Distress Inks and Color Bursts.

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – ‘animal kingdom’.

Thanks for stopping by!
