Christmas in July 2020 – Day 2

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 2 of Christmas in July 2020!

Today I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players – I had so much fun with all these layers. I used the Deco Trees die by Memory Box. It’s difficult to see from the photos, but I have some slightly distressed silver cardstock which I used behind the trees – I am still reeling from the shock of finding this cardstock so quickly! That never normally happens, does it!

Thanks for stopping by!

With Love Bird

Hello Everyone!

I can’t believe it’s June already can you? Sometimes the days are very slow, but actually the weeks seem to fly by!

I had a little bit of spare time today so decided to play along with the current Color Throwdown challenge (turquoise, black and white) and the fabulous sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I used a bird die from My Favorite Things Birds of a Feather set and paired it with a MFT rose die and a Simply Graphic branch die. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Thank for stopping by!

Quirky Forest

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along with the current colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. This week, we have rose, slate and mint – what a beautiful combo!

I’ve been hunting for quirky tree dies for quite a while now and as soon as I saw the new tree die set from Marianne Designs, I knew I had to have them! I created a few background panels using Distress Oxide inks and sprays and cut out the trees. I then dry embossed a smaller white panel using a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and adhered the trees before sticking the whole panel to my card base. I added a Sugar Pea Designs sentiment and some stickles to complete my card.

Thank for stopping by!

Cosmic Shimmer butterflies

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I’ve had Cosmic Shimmer Luna paste for a while now, but I rarely use it. I almost bought some more Nuvo embellishment mousse at the weekend, but decided to try the Luna paste again before pressing that ‘Buy’ button and I’m glad I waited! I’d forgotten how shimmery the Luna paste is. And unlike my embellishment mousse, they were still in perfect condition!

I applied a mix of the paste to a card base and left it to dry overnight. I then cut out some Bright Rosa butterflies and arranged them as per the sketch before adding a few pearls for their ‘bodies’!

The embossed sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Thank for stopping by!

Fabulous Friend

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.

Thank for stopping by!
