Find Your Happy

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday! Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge plus the Time Out Challenge where the theme is ‘free’!

I immediately thought of the ‘Beautiful You’ set from Stampin Up! for the Time Out Challenge. This image just screams freedom to me! I coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and added it to a Basic Grey panel which I had cut using a My Favorite Things die. To complete my take, I added a sentiment from an older Simon Says Stamp set.

A Flowery Hello

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge  This is one of my favourite challenges and this week they have a gorgeous colour combo… possibly my most favourite to date: plum, pink, peach and white. I must confess, I was a little nervous about creating something which would properly show off that gorgeous combo!

I didn’t like my first attempt, so I decided to try again with a different stamp and design! I embossed the beautiful Altenew Delicate Flowers Background stamp onto some plum cardstock and them coloured it in using my prismacolour pencils. To complete my card, I added a Winnie & Walter die cut and a few sequins!

Thank for stopping by!

Hello Friend card

Hi Everyone!

I’m playing along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

I spent a long time tidying my craft room over the festive break and enjoyed seeing some supplies that haven’t been used for a while. One of the background dies I know I wanted to use again very soon was the Simon Says Stamp Outline Floral Frame die. I thought it would be perfect for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

As you can see, I actually strayed away from my usual Twinkling H2O/pastel go-to combos and used some Nuvo alcohol markers and Prismacolor pencils to colour the flowers and leaves.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant and I also used one of the butterflies from the Memory Box Pinpoint Butterfly Trio die set.

Thank for stopping by!

Berry Happy Wishes

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has another super combo – purple, lavender and green.

Now you know I always struggle with lavender – the colours I use never really turn out the right way and never look like lavender should…. Today I just decided to use my new Milled Lavender oxide spray and a Bright Rosa stencil and hoped for the best – it’s still not as deep as I’d like BUT I do think it looks quite lavender-esque!!

I cut the largest stem from the Bright Rosa Foliage Sprigs die set and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and then added a ton of Tonic Nuvo glitter drops. I layered the die cut onto two other die cuts to give it a bit of extra dimension and adhered it to my stencilled panel. To complete my card, I added a sentiment from W Plus 9.

Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

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

Pink & Main was the Day 9 sponsor. I don’t have any of their festive stamps  but I decided to use the cute owl tags by Zsofi as my inspiration. The owl is by Stampendous and I also used a My Favorite Things sentiment plus some Lawn Fawn die cut snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 7 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 7 was Sunny Studio Stamps. I don’t have many of their products and when I saw the tag that Joyce made, I decided to substitute the little lights for a fabulous ornament string by Penny Black. I kept the same colour combo and used my Twinkling H2o paints to colour the ornaments.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!
