CAS Stencil – Monoprint heart

Hi there!

I am so delighted to be a Guest Designer for this month’s CAS Stencil Challenge.  The host this month is Linda and the technique that she is introducing is stencil monoprinting. You can see the first card I made for this month’s challenge here and I also shared this card using the same technique.

For today’s card, I used the lovely Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart stencil with one of my favourite distress ink combos (abandoned coral, spiced marmalade and seedless preserves) and I’m happy to say that I got an impression that I liked at only my second attempt this time! I trimmed down my panel and added a Simon Says Stamp die cut sentiment before adhering the panel to a card base.

This is the second time I’ve used this stencil for the CAS Stencil challenge. The first time I used it, I was really concerned that the stencil was too big for a CAS card so I came up with what I thought was a creative use of the stencil for a CAS challenge!

The CAS Stencil DT has come up with some amazing inspiration over on the challenge blog. I hope you can play along!

Thanks 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 8 – 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!

Picket Fence Studio was the Day 8 sponsor – although I don’t have any of the festive products, I absolutely loved Tracey’s inspiration so I adapted the design for use with the products I have. I used a Tim Holtz stencil, a deer die by Simon Says Stamp and little tree by Flora & Fauna. The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Day 5 – 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 5 was Reverse Confetti. I absolutely LOVE Jen Mitchell’s inspiration and happily pulled out my Reverse Confetti Triangle Trees and got to work! I used some Cosmic Shimmer sparkle paste, a My Favorite Things stencil and some patterned paper for the background.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 3 – 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!

Newton’s Nook was the sponsor for Day 3 – I LOVE Newton so I had a hard time trying to choose an inspiration tag and image! In the end, I chose the tag made by Ellen H as my inspiration and used the sweet Purr-fect Present stamp and coordinating die. I created the base using various distress inks and the Ornament stencil by Newton’s Nook.
