Christmas in July 2021 – Day 16

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 16 of  Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at The Paper Players .

First I created a hill at the bottom of my card using a Simon Says Stamp die. Next, I inked up the beautiful Enchanted Forest stamps by Papertrey in distress oxide inks and arranged them on my card base. I added a sentiment by Hero Arts to complete my take.

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 10

Happy Saturday everyone!

Welcome to Day 10 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has a palette of yellow, grey, black and white.

I was quite short on time today but I managed to grab a few moments this evening to make this card with the beautiful Memory Box Flowering Christmas Tree which I coloured with distress inks. I seriously can’t believe this tree is from 2011! Anyway, I added a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp, a pot from an Altenew die set and some gems to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 9

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 9 of Christmas in July 2021! I had one of those days today – a troublesome task which took MUCH longer than hoped and which will drag on due to a few technical hitches. Ugh!

So I wasn’t really in the most creative frame of mind this evening… but I had to make a Christmas in July card. So, this is just for fun, no challenges today – just a super quick die cut card using the Memory Box Antique Pine Label die, the Poppystamps Winterberries die and a couple of smaller Simply Graphic dies. All coloured with distress oxides inks! The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Oh Hello There

Hi there everyone!

Today I’m using my brand new Poppystamps Fern and Daisy Pop up Easel die set that I bought last week. This was quite a splurge so I wanted to make sure I used it straightaway! I thought that it would be perfect for the colour combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (pink, orange, green and purple).

I coloured the die cuts with various distress inks and then added a glittery Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello again!

Next up is my entry into one of my favourite sketch challenges, Freshly Made Sketches.

I’ve always loved dry embossing but haven’t used my folders much since I switched to the Gemini Junior die cutting machine. I could never get the plate/sandwich quite right. Last week, I decided to get my old manual die cutting machine out again, so I cleared some space in my craft room and set it up. So far, so good! The Gemini will continue to be my favourite machine for die cutting but it was so good to get a decent first impression with an embossing folder again!

So the reason for this little back story is that I was able to quickly emboss this sweet flowery scene with my new set up using an older Couture Creations folder. I added some die cut butterflies (Stampin Up, Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp) and a sentiment by Clearly Besotted.

Thanks for stopping by!

Let’s Sail Away

Hello again everyone!

After a lovely day yesterday celebrating a dear friend’s special birthday, I finally got to my craft table this weekend to make my entry into the current Color Throwdown which has a nautical palette of light grey, aqua and navy.

I paired a brand new Memory Box die set (Marina Sailboats) with an older die (Silent Snowfall) that I  repurposed to represent water! The sentiment is from an older Simon Says Stamp set called Sailing.

I’m also entering this into the current Memory Box challenge where the theme is ‘feeling blue’.

Thanks for stopping by!
