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.

Day 20 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 20 was The Greetery. I LOVE their products! So innovative! I just wish they had a UK retailer! Anyway, having just bought the word slice dies, I was delighted to see that Lisa  had used them for her inspiration! I really would never have thought of using patterned paper with this die and I although I couldn’t quite use plaid paper, I did use a flowery pattern instead! I really like how this turned out! The pine branches are by Pretty Pink Posh and the sentiment is by Savvy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 18 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 18 was Gillian Vance. I don’t have any Gillian Vance products so I decided to adapt the tag made by Lindsey!

The tree die is by Savvy Stamps and I used a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 12 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 12 was Pinkfresh. I loved how Lindsey used leftover die cuts for some of her tags so I pulled out a bunch of my smaller dies to create my take! So many brands here! Taylored Expressions, Memory Box, Savvy Stamps and Simon Says Stamp! I loved creating this and it has given me a few card ideas!

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry and Bright deer

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge today. As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought of the Memory Box circular scene dies that I’ve acquired over the years and decided to use them for my card.

I wanted to use the Reindeer Circle and Countryside Circle dies, but the latter is bigger than the former so I had to get creative as I wanted the circles to be the same size. I started with the Reindeer Circle die and used this to cut to circles in a white panel. I then cut away one deer and replaced it with the scene from the Countryside Circle die. I adhered a little deer from the Savvy Stamps Woodland Meadow set and then positioned one of my rejected stencil monoprint backgrounds behind the circles before adhering the whole ensemble to a card base.

To complete my card, I used a sentiment from the My Favorite Things Merry Everything stamp set and added a few sequins and a drop of red stickles for Rudolph’s nose!

Thank for stopping by!

Pastel thank you

Hi everyone!

Popping in with a last minute entry into two challenges that close this evening – the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I used a Savvy Stamps die plus distress oxide and Altenew inks. The coloured strips were created using an Avery Elle frame die set.

Thanks for stopping by!
