Friday Fireworks

Happy Friyay people!

I’m very late with my entry for the Less is More challenge, but I should just scrape in before it closes.

It’s a colour challenge and the cue word is ‘fireworks’. I decided to use a fabulous Taylored Expressions embossing folder and then add some stickles and Tonic Nuvo drops to highlight a few fireworks.

I added a sentiment from Poppystamps to complete this super simple card – it’s actually cut from glitter paper but you can’t see that in the photo unfortunately!

Merry Making – Day 4 Holiday Die Cutting

Hi there!

I had been looking forward to Day 4 of Online Card Classes’ Merry Making class  – Holiday die cutting. And it did not disappoint!

First up is my take on Jennifer McGuire’s background die gatefold card. Rather than use a detailed cutting plate, I decided to make a scene using dies from memory Box, Taylored Expressions and Tim Holtz/Sizzix. I guess it ended up being a hybrid of Jennifer and Nicole Spohr’s card (100% die cutting!).

I must say the timing for this card idea is perfect as I just discovered a load of pre-scored gatefold cards which I’ve had for YEARS! Now I have a great way of using up that cardstock!

My second card for this post features the technique demonstrated by Julie Ebersole – hidden die cut! I first tried this technique in March and I love it!

I decided that the Simon Says Stamp/Avery Elle Stamptember set would be perfect for this. I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2Os and some white paint. The stamp is from an older Hero Arts set and the die is by Mama Elephant.

Yellow rose

Hi everyone!

There’s another cute sketch over at the Case This Sketch challenge this week and I decided to use my Altenew Bamboo Rose set for my take.

I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2Os and added it to a die cut – which I had embossed using one of my favourite Taylored Expressions embossing folders.

To finish the card, I added a small sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

I’m also entering this card into the current Color Throwdown challenge – green, yellow, red and aqua.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone!

There’s another great sketch for this week’s Case This Sketch challenge and for my entry, I used Simon Says Stamps dies together with a brick embossing folder from Taylored Expressions.

I’m also entering this card in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – Black and White and a splash of colour.

Thanks for stopping by!
