Happy Heart Day 2021


Happy Heart Day everyone!

I’m back and playing along with two challenges with this card today – the CAS on Friday challenge where the theme is ‘love’ and the Addicted to CAS Challenge where the theme is ‘Hearts’.

First of all I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the pretty Potted Passion stamp by Penny Black, Then I started on the background. I was originally planning to have an ink-blended circle in the centre but BOTH of my circle stencils have gone AWOL. So annoying! Instead, I decided to die cut a frame using the Penny Black Happy Heart Day Lovely Border dies. These are rectangular, but I just moved the die and partically cut it twice to create a square which I felt would give me more space for that lovely bold sentiment.

I adhered some patterned paper that was already on my table – I was so chuffed that it matched the colours of the leaves of my image so beautifully! I then stamped the sentiment – this is one of my absolute favourites! It’s from a 2006 Stampendous set and has really stood the test of time.

Finally I adhered the image and a few die cut hearts to complete my card.

Deco Rose Hello

Hello Everyone!

I was flicking through my flower dies yesterday and spotted the Poppystamps Deco Roses die set and made a mental note to use it again soon, then I thought it would be perfect to use with one of my older Stampendous stamps for my take on the fabulous sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I heat embossed the deco image and coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints I also coloured the die cut roses with the same colour before adhering them all to the card base. To complete my card, I added a sentiment by Sugar Pea Designs which I stamped in Peeled Paint distress oxide ink – it seemed to match the green I used for the leaves perfectly!

Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

Pink & Main was the Day 9 sponsor. I don’t have any of their festive stamps  but I decided to use the cute owl tags by Zsofi as my inspiration. The owl is by Stampendous and I also used a My Favorite Things sentiment plus some Lawn Fawn die cut snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by!


Christmas in July – Day 14

Happy Sunday!

Christmas in July Day 14 and the final Day of the 30 day colouring challenge!

For today’s card, I used one of my favourite festive stamps – the wonderful Stampendous Kitty Claws. I LOVE this stamp so much! My mum bought it first, over a decade or so ago, but I kept borrowing it, so I was very happy to pick one up for myself about five years ago! The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!



Christmas in July – Day 4

Happy Saturday everyone!

Here’s my card for Christmas in July Day 4 (Day 20 of the colouring challenge) using another older Hero Arts stamp, Whimsical Snow People! Can we just take a moment to look at that snowbaby?! Isn’t he the cutest?!

I decided to play along with the current Case This Sketch challenge and while I was looking through my patterned paper, I found some paper that actually replicated some of the layers in the sketch – even the sentiment strip was in the right place! Isn’t that amazing!

Thanks for stopping by!


Christmas in July – Day 2

Hello everyone!

Christmas in July Day 2 (Day 18 of the colouring challenge) and today I inked up another older Stampendous stamp, Chickadee!

I coloured it using the fab, non-festive palette over at CAS Colours & Sketches this week, although I did have to use a drop of yellow for his beak!!

I added a sentiment from Penny Black complete my very simple card!
