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.

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.

Christmas in July – Day 17

Hi Everyone

Day 17 of Christmas in July and I’m still die cutting! Today I used an older Memory Box die, Dazzling Snowflake from 2014, with the sketch from the current Case This Sketch Challenge and the fabulous palette from this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge – pink, grey, white and silver. I used this die a lot for some mass-produced cards five years ago; this card is definitely NOT a design for speedy mass production – that inlaid die cutting took a while due to ALL THOSE TINY DOTS. Worth it though, I love the effect! The stamped sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

I’m also entering this into the current CAS Christmas challenge where the theme is snowflake.

Thank 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.

Loving Koala

Hi everyone!

When I saw the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog, I thought it would be a great way of using my new Simon Say Stamp/Sugar Pea Stamptember koala stamps. The set is so cute and I am so glad I managed to snag one before they sold out!

Anyway, for my card, I stamped and coloured the cute koala and then carefully cut just under the image so I could slip a strip of My Mind’s Eye paper underneath – so that it looked like he was sitting on the strip. Anyway, I then added a circle from that I cut from a distress oxide background I made a while back and added a sentiment from the set. I still felt like the card needed ‘something’, so I cut out two hearts to finish it off.

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by!
