Day 25 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 25’s inspiration is Day 18, 2017. Here’s the tag I made then!

I love Avery Elle, but I also really wanted to finish off my tags quickly! So I chose Brianna’s tag as inspiration for my design but replaced the foliage with Avery Elle snowflakes!

And that concludes my own tag challenge this year. While I really missed Tracey’s event, I was so grateful that she has so much inspiration from the past decade and I loved how her style evolved as the challenge got bigger and bigger. The only downside for me really was that I started too late and so this challenge really cut into my December crafting. I will certainly try to start on 1 November next year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Eggs

 

Hi there!

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

As I’m still on my Easter card drive, I just had to play with my new Pretty Pink Posh Spring Eggs! I decided to use the wonderful Sunny Studios basket stamp to corral the eggs – and then at the last minute, I added a little fun chick (by Simon Says Stamp). The sentiment is also by SSS.

Day 1 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

Last year, I played along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags for the third year in a row. I was pretty busy with work and travel so didn’t manage to create 26 tags, but I made 20 which was still enough for my 2019 gifts!

I’m so happy to see the event is back again this year! Once again, each day has a sponsor and I am going to try to use products from each sponsor wherever I can.

Sunny Studio was the sponsor for Day 1. I really like their layering stamps and once their Christmas layering stamps are back in stock at my UK retailer, I’m going to buy them!

For my first tag, I decided to use Cheryl Nutti‘s inspiration. The stamps I used are by Sunny Studio and by Hero Arts.

Day 8 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

I was so pleased to see that the Day 8 sponsor was Sunny Studio. I got their layered bell set last year and I absolutely love it. In fact, I love all their layering stamps – I find them so easy to line up! Anyway, when I looked at the DT designs, I really like how Francesca Vignoli had used a couple of stamps and a bold sentiment in her tags and that served as my inspiration!

I inked up my beloved bell – and then added the pine branch and bold sentiment from the same Sunny Studios set. To finish off the tag, I added some stickle for a bit of sparkle!

Thanks for stopping by!

I Heart Summer!

Hi Everyone!

The theme for this month’s Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday is ‘Summer’ and so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to use my Sunny Studios layered popsicles. I find their layering stamps super easy to line up – and the popsicles are no exception!

Once I stamped the images several times using Altenew inks, I felt I needed ‘something’ to anchor the collection. I did a little controlled ink smooshing and then added a border die from Poppystamps – I think it almost looks like some sort of quirky popsicle holder! I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to complete the card

Thanks for looking!

Blast from the past – Neapolitan ice cream!

 

Hi everyone!

I’ve been having fun playing with my new Sunny Studios ‘Two Scoops’ layering stamps today! I found them really easy to line up and the images are amazing! Love them!

Anyway, this week’s Less is More Challenge has the theme of ‘Neapolitan’ and of course I had to use my new stamps set and create a Neapolitan ice cream cone! I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and stuck the image onto a background I created with some (controlled) ink smooshing.

I’m also entering this card into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (summer fun) and the CAS Challenge (smoosh).

Right, I am off to get a bowl of ice cream!

Thanks for stopping by!
