The Stamp Market

Colourful Tall Trees

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is kraft, red, green and chartreuse.

I immediately thought of the chartreuse colour burst and knew I had to create a card using that! I created a few inky backgrounds and used the Tall Tree dies from the Stamp Market to cut a few trees. I LOVE this die and was stalking my UK retailer until the die went live on the site and snapped it up straightaway!

I added a few splashes of kraft paint at the tree bases and die cut some kraft stars and dots to add to the sky. The sentiment is stamped in Frayed Burlap distress oxide and is by Mama Elephant.

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.

Thanks for stopping by!

Belated birthday vase

Hi Everyone!

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

I pulled out my newest die set (Altenew Vases) and a few Simply Graphic dies and got to work. I had originally planned to emboss a frame using a Stamp Market die but I still haven’t mastered embossing with dies in my Gemini and ended up cutting the whole shape out instead! So frustrating but I added a piece of acetate and made the card anyway. I’m happy with how it turned out in the end.

The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

Thank for stopping by!
