Awesome die cuts

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

Cecile has created a fabulous sketch for a square card – as I don’t seem to make many square cards, I decided I would stick to the shape of the base card, although I did tweak the shape of the elements!

I used products from so many companies for my take – the die cut frame is from the new Stylish Frame Trio set by Memory Box, the leaves are from Simply Graphic and the sentiment is from the Big Dots sentiments set by Waffle Flower.

Thank for stopping by!

Hi Everyone!

just a quick post today – I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the deadline is looming!

I used Basic Grey papers and die from My Favorite Things and Simply Graphic to create my take on the sketch. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Christmas in July – Day 20

Happy Saturday Everyone!

It’s Christmas in July Day 20 and guess what! It’s another die cut card from me! I reckon it’s a reaction to the past month of just stamping and colouring!

Anyway, I chose to flip the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to make a landscape card. I used a window die from My Favorite Things together with an ornament die from Simply Graphic. The front of the card is adhered by foam tape and I was originally planning to just attach the ornaments to the top of each window but they ended up looking really weird, so they are all adhered to the base using the tiniest slivers of foam tape!

The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

Christmas in July – Day 18

Hi Everyone

Day 18 of Christmas in July and my pile of Christmas cards is growing nicely!

Today I used a Simply Graphic tree die and the colour palette from this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge .

I always have a problem with navy, especially photographing it. It either looks black or too light! So I decided to try something different today and used some blue cardstock which I darkened using Chipped Sapphire distress ink. I like how it turned out as it meant I could lift some ink to create a snowy effect around the trees.

I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to finish off this card.

All white thank you

Hi friends!

I am back with my entry into the current CAS on Friday challenge which has the theme of white on white.

I love white on white but I rarely create all white cards unless it’s for a challenge. I must rectify that! Anyway, after a LOT of dithering and die cutting, I finally used one of my favourite dies from Simply Graphic – the die étamines which was the die of the month in April 2018 .

I die cut a circle in my base card and a white panel. After adhering some acetate over the circle on my base card, I stuck on the white panel using some foam tape before adhering the die cut image. I then die cut a Savvy Stamps sentiment three times before sticking them all together and on to my card.

Vase of birthday wishes

Hi friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I used a die from an Impression Obsession vase die set that I picked up during the Dies-to-Die For Easter sale. I’m really looking forward to using all of those dies over the next few weeks! The funky stems are all from Simply Graphic.

Once I’d assembled my card, I added a small tag with a stamped Hero Arts sentiment and a few of my new Nuvo Summer Sunrise glitter drops. The glitter drops are a lovely subtle warm orange, but a little too subtle for this card as I really wanted to coordinate with the orange die cut. To get the deeper colour, I just added a dot of coloured pencil where I wanted to position each Nuvo drop – that gave me just the extra splash of colour that I was after!

Thanks for stopping by!
