Thanks with a splash

Hi everyone!

I’m loving the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – black and white with a splash of colour. Here’s another entry using the Painted Thanks die from Simon Says Stamp plus the gorgeous Grands Cercles embossing folder from Studio Carabelle! I added a couple of Doodlebug enamel dots for the splash of colour.

The ‘thanks’ is cut from black glitter paper (but you can’t really see it from these pictures unfortunately!) and layered on a couple of black die cuts for added depth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!

There’s another great sketch for this week’s Case This Sketch challenge and for my entry, I used Simon Says Stamps dies together with a brick embossing folder from Taylored Expressions.

I’m also entering this card in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – Black and White and a splash of colour.

Thanks for stopping by!

Belated Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone

For today’s quick card, I used a gorgeous die from Simon Says Stamp which I cut twice – once in glitter paper and once in vellum.

I offset the glitter die cut to expose just a thin shadow of vellum. I added some Hero Arts Metallic Décor and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to complete the card.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – ‘birthday bash’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Glitzy Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone!

I turned to my sadly-neglected distress stains for today’s card and used them to create a soft background. I then used Cosmic Shimmer Paste and a Simon Says Stamp stencil to add the sparkle.

When the paste was dry, I added a simple sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly, which I’ve had for years and years!

Today’s card is for threechallenges – the Case this Sketch challenge,  the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (Birthday Bash) and also the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (Touchy Feely).

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!

Blast from the past – Neapolitan ice cream!

 

Hi everyone!

I’ve been having fun playing with my new Sunny Studios ‘Two Scoops’ layering stamps today! I found them really easy to line up and the images are amazing! Love them!

Anyway, this week’s Less is More Challenge has the theme of ‘Neapolitan’ and of course I had to use my new stamps set and create a Neapolitan ice cream cone! I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and stuck the image onto a background I created with some (controlled) ink smooshing.

I’m also entering this card into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (summer fun) and the CAS Challenge (smoosh).

Right, I am off to get a bowl of ice cream!

Thanks for stopping by!
