Glitzy Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone!

I turned to my sadly-neglected distress stains for today’s card and used them to create a soft background. I then used Cosmic Shimmer Paste and a Simon Says Stamp stencil to add the sparkle.

When the paste was dry, I added a simple sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly, which I’ve had for years and years!

Today’s card is for three challenges – the Case this Sketch challenge, the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (Birthday Bash) and also the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (Touchy Feely).

Thanks for stopping by!


I Heart Dad!

Hi everyone!

Both the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges have a masculine theme this week. I pulled out my Tim Holtz products for my entry! I used a crazy bird stamp and the Distress Oxide inks to colour the image, background and balloons. I love those inks!

I used dies from My Favorite Things and part of a Hero Arts stamp to create the balloons.

I couldn’t resist a bit of shimmer so I added a drop or two from my Nuvo aqua shimmer pen!

I really enjoyed making this card, but it’ll probably stay in my craft room as my own dad definitely prefers my CAS cards and so that’s what I’ll be making for him this week!!

Thanks for looking!



I’m here for you

Hi everyone!

I’ve been playing with Distress Oxide inks today – they are such fun!

I created a smooshed background that I used for the butterflies and then added a strip of stencilled cardstock that I’d sprayed with water repeatedly.

I’m entering this into the current Case This Sketch challenge.

Thanks for looking!


Be Loud!

Happy Saturday!

The theme for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘Loud’ and I thought these wonderful stamps from Indigo Blu would be perfect.

I stamped the image and then masked it, before smooshing Distress Oxide Ink onto the background.

I think the image looks like it is raised off the background – it isn’t! The whole panel was mounted on funky foam before I stuck it onto a larger base card.

Thanks for looking!
