Meadow Rue

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with colour challenge at The Paper Players.

Unfortunately, I haven’t had much crafty time this week so I ended up putting this card together just before the challenge deadline! Just made it! Phew!

I used a beautiful older die called Meadow Rue by Simon Says Stamp which I coloured with Distress Oxides. I adhered it to a panel embossed with a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and added a sentiment by Memory Box.

Les fleurs graciles

Hello Everyone!

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

I just love what Cecile called the whimsical fuzzy background!! My interpretation uses a Taylored Expressions abstract stencil and Salvaged Patina ink that I blended and then smooshed onto my card base. I decided to use my new Fleurs Graciles die from Simply Graphic as the focal point for this card and added a little Simply Graphic bow as well.

The sentiment is by Pretty Pink Posh.

Easter Frames

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at The Paper Players.

Easter is fast approaching now, so time for me to get back to some seasonal cards! When I saw the sketch, I thought the You’ve been framed – Spring die set by Taylored Expressions would work well, so I pulled them out and got to work. I created a blended background using Distress Oxide inks, trimmed it into three rectangles and adhered three die cut frames. I inlaid aqua die cut pieces into the eggs and added a sentiment from the Mini Strips – Easter stamp set to complete my card.

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 28

Hi there!

Welcome to Day 28 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge hosted by The Paper Players .

I felt it was time to create another reindeer card and decided to use the Reindeer die by Impression Obsession. I just love those statement antlers! I coloured the deer with distress inks, added the antlers that I cut from glitter card and adhered the image to an ink-blended panel. I added the Taylored Expressions Mini Holiday Borders to my card base before adhering the deer panel. Finally I added a stamped sentiment using, yes, you’ve guess it! My go-to Mama Elephant sentiment set!

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 27

Hi there!

Welcome to Day 27 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the Christmas Card Throwdown challenge where the challenge is to use vellum on a window card.

I loved how DT member Rosi dry embossed the vellum on her card so I decided to do the same! I created a bold centre panel with distress oxide inks. I embossed some vellum using a Taylored Expressions folder and adhered it to a frame cut using the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frames die set. I then adhered the frame on top of the inky panel. I love that the bold colour still shows the vellum! Next I die cut the Forest Pine Branch and coloured it with distress inks before adhering it to the frame. I added two Poppystamps Winter berries die cuts and bows cut from the Crisps Bows set. Finally I added a sentiment from a Hunkydory/Moonstone set.

AAA Cards One Layer challenge with Hexagons twist

Hi there!

It’s time for the a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a one-layer CAS card; our optional twist is ‘hexagons’.

For my card, I created an ink-blended hexagon using a Taylored Expressions stencil and then stamped an image from an old Hero Arts set called Asian Frames. I was so chuffed that the stamp was a perfect fit with the ink-blended hexagon! I then added a few smaller hexagons using another Taylored Expressions stencil and a sentiment by Clearly Besotted.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Sue, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
