Christmas in July 2022 – Day 17

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 17 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along with this month’s CAS Christmas card challenge where the theme is ‘Santa’.

Originally I wasn’t going to play along with this challenge because I don’t really have any Santa supplies… Then I remembered my Santa’s Snowy Hills die from Picket Fence Studios so got crafty! I used a section of the die and cut that die cut with a circle die. I added a little Victorian Velvet distress ink to my card base and adhered the card.

I added a few stars and a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!


New Home Heart

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with clean and simple challenge at The Paper Players where the theme is ‘house’.

I started by embossing a heart to my card base using a die from the Pinpoint Hearts set by Poppystamps. I then cut a section of the Sugar Pea Designs Homescape die, adhered it to a strip of glitter card and added it to the card base.

Finally I stamped a Taylored Expressions sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!


Playful Petals

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge  which has a fabulous combo of navy, blue, green and orange) as well as the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

For my card, I used uneven square dies from Marianne Design plus the beautiful Playful Petals Bundle die from Memory Box. The sentiment is from my go-to set my Sugar Pea Designs.

Butterfly cookie inspiration

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m using some brand new Birch Press Design dies that landed on my door mat yesterday. Look at that beautiful Eloquent Butterfly layering die! Isn’t it fabulous? I already have a layering butterfly die but I couldn’t resist adding another one to my collection!

I used the inspiration photo from the June If you give a crafter a cookie challenge. I loved the colour combo and designs! I paired the butterfly with a stem from the beautiful Sugar Pea Designs Botanical Branches die set

The background is also by Birch Press Deisgn – the Pinpoint Radial Plate.

Paper Players Sketch challenge

Hello friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players . I used dies from the fabulous new Sue Wilson/Creative Expressions Elegant Arrangements, coloured with distress inks. I cut the vase from some of my patterned paper mountain. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

For my CAS card, I used candle dies by Open Studio/Memory Box to cut an inky panel I made some time ago. I really like this set because it has separate flame dies to add on. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

And for those of you looking… here is my chosen emoji!
