Day 23 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 23 was Penguin Palace. There was so much inspiration from the designers! I particularly loved Bobbi’s tags – all that texture!

For my tag, I created a base using my new Rustic Wilderness distress oxide and black soot oxide. I then applied Nuvo embellishment mousse using a Uniko stencil. Finally I added zillions of branches cut from a Poppystamps die and added a sentiment from a very old Hero Arts wood-mounted set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 17 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 17 was Picket Fence Studios – the team came up with some amazing inspiration but as soon as I saw the tags created by Lisa, I knew they would be my inspiration!

I used the Snowflake Trio dies by Reverse Confetti and a sentiment by Hero Arts for my tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Fractile Leaves

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with one the Color Throwdown! The palette this week looks like red, yellow, porcelain and brown – very autumnal!

I actually made a tree scene card using these colours yesterday. However, when I went to upload it, I felt that it wasn’t appropriate given the terrible fires engulfing the forests in the western USA. So, today I had a bit of free time and re-did my card using the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Fractile Leaves set plus a background die from The Stamp Market. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Christmas in July 2020 – Day 14

Hello again everyone!

So last Saturday, I was making a card for a sketch challenge, but couldn’t quite bring myself to cut up the background I coloured and I ended up going with something else. So, today, I used that background – with minimal cutting!

I heat embossed the pretty Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia background stamp and coloured it using my twinkling H2O paints. I splattered some gold dots and adhered it to a metallic gold panel. To complete my card, I added a die cut sentiment from Winnie & Walter.

I’m entering this into the current Inspirational challenge where the theme is painting or colouring.

Thanks for stopping by!
