Mischievous Hello

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I just received the fun Tim Holtz Mischievous cat die set on Friday so I really wanted to use at least one of them this weekend! And I did for this card! I love the silhouette dies but decided to add some eyes and a nose from another cat die for this card.

I created the wall from an ink blended panel cut with a My Favorite Things background die. The sentiment is also by MFT

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 24

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 24 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Once again this month, I’m doing something I rarely seem to do – sharing a card that I created without a challenge in mind!

I started by using the fabulous Sizzix 3D Christmas Trees folder. I think this is one of my favourite Christmas folders! I love the detail and all the quirky little trees!

For the focal point tree, I used an older Poppystamps die to cut the tree from white cardstock and then embossed it using a folder that I’d brayered with Rustic Wilderness distress oxide ink. I added some stickles over the white embossing.

The sentiment is from a set by My Favorite Things.

Layered Chick and Speckled Egg

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

To start, I created a stencil from a Memory Box egg die and blended some Speckled Egg distress ink before adding some brown speckles. Next, I finally got round to using my Tim Holtz/Sizzix chick dies! I was a little apprehensive at first as some layering die sets can be quite fiddly but as soon as I started cutting the pieces, I realise how super easy this set is! I really liked Jenn Shurkus’s inspiration card where I think she used some smooshed panels to create her chicks so I decided to use some of my smooshed backgrounds. I when through my Big Background Box and was quite surprised that I have created quite a few yellow panels! Nice to actually use some of them today!

After adhering the chick, I added a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp to complete my card.

Honeysuckle Bowl

Hello again everyone!

Next today is my card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

For my take, I used Paper Rose Studio’s Honeysuckle Plant and a bowl from a Sizzix die set, all coloured with distress inks. The sentiment is my Whimsy Stamps.

This was a really interesting sketch to play with and at first I used the die cut bowl to represent the middle strip in the sketch, but I didn’t really like how it looked, but I was much happier when I added that third yellow strip!

AAA Cards One Corner with Boo twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!¬† This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using one corner of your card base only. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘boo’!

I didn’t have much crafty time ahead of our submission deadline this week so pulled together a very quick CAS card using a purple cardbase, a smidge of white ink, a fun Sizzix ghost die and a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Helen, who has lovely cards on her blog!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Summer Flower box

Hello again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches and this week it’s a slimline card sketch!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m so glad I was able to hold on to all my old pre-creased slimline card bases. I used these so much a decade ago and the card is still beautifully white!

I decided to use a few of my older Memory Box dies (Summer Border die and Grape Vine die) together with a newer Sizzix die. The sentiment is from a Pretty Pink Posh set.

Thanks for stopping by!
