Hello Spring Blossoms

Hi everyone!

There’s a feeling of spring in the air today – I can see buds appearing across the garden!

So I felt it was right to pull out my Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms stamps and dies for my take on the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I coloured the flowers with Twinkly H2Os and Prismacolour pencils and arranged them on a rectangle of Basic Grey paper.

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Stencilled birthday roses

Hello everyone!

I’m back with another challenge entry – this time for the current sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

In addition to my dies, I have also been neglecting my stencils due to my wood stamp challenge so as soon as I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for stencilling! I used a Time Holtz stencil plus regular distress inks with a detail blending tool.

The die cut sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

I’m also entering this into the current Just Us Girls challenge where the theme is ‘birthday’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Basket

Hello there!

The theme over at the Allsorts challenge this week is ‘Spring Flowers and I immediately thought of my large ‘Birch Bouquet’ stamp from Stampendous. It’s another one of those big images that I hadn’t used, but I happily inked it up and stamped away! It also stamped beautifully!

Once I had coloured all the flowers, I cut around the image using a Penny Black die and layered it onto some coloured card stock – it’s actually lighter in real life than it appears here! Honest!

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from an older Simon Says Stamp set.

Hey there, flower!

Hello everyone!

I’m back with my entry for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I used another older wood stamp (Tigress by Penny Black) that I stamped a couple of times at the base of my card. Once the ink was dry, I blended a little distress ink into the background before colouring the image with my Twinkling H2Os. Can you see that shimmer?

I added a few dots of stickles and a die cut sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending love and flowers

Hello everyone!

I’m determined to catch up with the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge so here is my Day 18 colouring! I used an older stamp from Stampendous which I coloured with my Twinkling H2Os.

I added it to a base that I had embossed with a Crafts-Too folder and then added a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp and a few pearls as a finishing touch.

I’m entering this into the CAS on Friday challenge where the theme is ‘use a tag’. I’m so happy to find a CAS challenge that allows dry embossing – one of my favourite techniques!

Thanks for stopping by!

Melle Papillion

Bonjour!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge which has the most amazing sketch this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use a triangle as a focal point and thought I’d probably end up using a tree. But, as I was going through my wood-mounted stamps I unearthed the sweet ‘Melle Papillon’ stamp from Penny Black. I got it in 2013 and haven’t used it much at all.

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out using a triangular die. I then embossed a sentiment from my favourite things and added die cut butterflies from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!
