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!

AAA Cards Hugs, Kisses and Fairy Wishes!

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!¬† This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using our sketch. Our optional twist this time is ‘it flies’. Stamplorations is our sponsor.

What do you think of the optional twist? There are so many possibilities aren’t there? Butterflies, birds, planes, hot air balloons, the list is pretty long!

I was originally going to use a plane for my take but as I was looking for a particular sentiment I came across on old Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit which had the theme of fairies! I reckon I’ve had it 2 – 3 years and sadly, I’ve barely used it! Anyway, I thought that a fairy would be perfect for an alternative take on the twist.

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, Coni, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Hi there!

Happy Leap Day friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current Altenew Inspiration Challenge . I never usually play along with Altenew challenges but when I saw the inspiration colours, I thought they would work well with and idea I had for a freshly Made Sketches challenge. I started working on my card and suddenly my boiler broke down. Cue many days of just keeping warm, an very little crafting!

I finally picked up my half-made card again this morning. The sketch challenge is long over but I can still enter the Altenew challenge! So I finished off my card. I used the Leaf Canopy stamp set and coloured it with my Twinkling H2O paints. I added lots of splatters, not realising I’d also go them EVERYWHERE… including on my face! The patterned paper is from My Mind’s Eye and the sentiment is also by Altenew!

Thank for stopping by!

Super Day

Hi Everyone!

Next, I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

I started by stamping the My Favorite Things Romantic Script background on a kraft background which I then cut using a curved die.

I cut and coloured the Delightful Daisies image by Poppystamps before adhering it to the kraft background.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from Right At Home stamps and a few Nuvo drops.

Thank for stopping by!
