Christmas in July 2022 – Day 30

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 30 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Us Girls challenge to case a designer.

I chose to CASE this card by JJ Bolton – I love her style and this card caught my eye as it is such a fabulous way of showcasing the small ornaments dies by Waffle Flower Crafts that I bought recently. I chose a smaller colour palette and added silver mirror card behind each of by die cuts! This card was a labour of love! You would not believe how much time I spent arranging all those little ornaments.

I added a sentiment by Savvy Stamps plus a small holly sprig to complete my take on JJ’s card. Thanks for the inspiration JJ!

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 23

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 23 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Add Ink sketch challenge.

I picked up a few 3D embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago and they arrived yesterday – I couldn’t wait to play with them! The thing is, they are just so beautiful, I can never bring myself to cover up the embossing! So today’s card is pretty simple – the Christmas Floral embossing folder is the star and die cuts by Poppystamps, Savvy Stamps and Simply Graphic make up the supporting cast!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 15 – 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 15’s inspiration is Day 15, 2018. I was particularly drawn to the more intricate nature of the tags in this blog post. You can see what I created back in 2018 here and this time I’ve chosen Tanja’s tag. I just LOVE how she created that background and I’m very grateful that she included instructions.

I used my brand new Pinecone Plethora embossing folder from Gemini. You may remember that my original embossing folder met with a rather sad end. But thanks to a lovely IG friend, I located and won its replacement in an ebay auction! Phew!

The dies are by Simply Graphic and Savvy Stamps.

Playing with numbers

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the theme challenge at The Paper Players and the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

When I saw the Paper Players theme, I immediately thought of my WRMK numbered ‘next level’ embossing folder. Remember those next level sets? I loved them… I think WRMK was pretty much the first manufacturer to come out with 3D embossing folders. I couldn’t stop buying them. Luckily I have a bit more self restraint nowadays!

I kept the card very simple and just added a Savvy Stamps die cut sentiment plus a Hero Arts sentiment.

Hello there cherry blossoms

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the current¬†¬†Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I was really pleased to see the slimline card sketch this week as I thought I could finally use a die I bought at the start of the year thinking it was a LOT smaller than it turned out! Online shopping is tricky isn’t it? Anyway I was so glad to finally use a couple of dies from the Paper Discovery Cherry Blossoms and Lanterns die set!

The sentiment is by Savvy Stamps.

Merry Christmas Lights

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

For this card, I was inspired by Libby who created a beautiful card using a Hero Arts background/frame die! I immediately thought that my brand new Penny Black Looped Stackers dies could be coupled with the Concord & 9th ornaments from their Take a Bough Trimmings set. I coloured the baubles with my Tonic Nuvo markers and applied some Nuvo glaze on top of each of them. The sentiment is by Savvy Stamps.
