Technique – Stamping

Featuring stamping

Have a cupcake or two!

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is sweet things/one layer card. A perfect opportunity for me to use my Altenew cupcake layering stamps. They line up so easily. I had a lot of fun playing with different colour combos before deciding on this one for my card!

Anyway, I added a few splatters from my Twinkling H2Os and also added shimmer to the cupcake using my trusty Nuvo aqua shimmer pen!

Thanks for looking!


Happy Owl

Hi everyone!

I love participating in sketch challenges as they often push me beyond my CAS comfort zone… and I also find that I can use up some of my very neglected patterned paper mountain at the same time!

Today’s card is for the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge – I’ve paired MFT stamps with dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box on this card. And I’ve been able to use some of my patterned paper (from My Mind’s Eye). Woo hoo indeed!

Thanks for looking!


A floral hello

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been practising my no-lines colouring today. I stamped the gorgeous floral bouquet image from Avery Elle in Antique Linen distress ink and then used my Twinkling H2Os to colour the image.

I cut a frame using a die from My Favorite Things and added a sentiment die from Avery Elle and a smattering of gold stickles to finish off the card.

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (coral, green and yellow) and the Flower challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for looking!


Aloha parrot

Aloha cousins!

(I heard that phrase A LOT during my trip to Hawaii some years ago and always think of it when I hear/see ‘aloha’!)

Anyway, when Hero Arts released their latest stamps, I fell in love with the colour layering koala, but soon realised I had overlooked the fabulous parrot set! I used it to make today’s very quick and simple card – and of course I had to use the ‘aloha’ sentiment!

Have a great weekend!


Blast from the past – Neapolitan ice cream!


Hi everyone!

I’ve been having fun playing with my new Sunny Studios ‘Two Scoops’ layering stamps today! I found them really easy to line up and the images are amazing! Love them!

Anyway, this week’s Less is More Challenge has the theme of ‘Neapolitan’ and of course I had to use my new stamps set and create a Neapolitan ice cream cone! I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and stuck the image onto a background I created with some (controlled) ink smooshing.

I’m also entering this card into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (summer fun) and the CAS Challenge (smoosh).

Right, I am off to get a bowl of ice cream!

Thanks for stopping by!
