Potted Plant hugs

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This CAS card came together very quickly! I used the beautiful Penny Black Potted Plant die together with a sentiment from The Ton and an embossing folder by Taylored Expressions.

Day 8 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 8 was Avery Elle. I love Avery Elle stamps and dies and as soon as I saw that Maria Peters had used the Snow Globe set, I knew I had to ink my set up again!!

I decided to use a different colour palette for the night sky – I’ve been seeing the picked raspberry/seedless preserves combo a lot on instagram this year and I really love that vibrant colour!

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant and carefully hides a poorly stamped sentiment on the base of the globe!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ghost Hugs

Happy Halloween everyone!

Here’s a quick card I made with the My Favorite Things Fab-boo-lous Friends stamp set and a wonderful background die by Winnie & Walter. I’ve been very drawn to cards with bright pink backgrounds recently so I HAD to do one of my own!

Thanks for stopping by!

Monster Boo!

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I played along with a Case This Sketch challenge and so I decided to hop back into the challenge this week!

I used the brand new Whittle Monsters by Poppystamps. You see that little green monster? He is the whole reason I bought this die set! The set contains a cat as well, but I felt a ghost would be better in my scene here so I added one from my Whittle Ghost set. I created the background using distress oxide inks and a Hero Arts background stamp spritzed with water and the wooded frame is by Memory Box.

Merry Everything baubles

Hi there!

Happy Saturday from a wet and windy London! Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

When I saw the sketch, I thought of so many possibilities for those five columns! In the end I opted for a festive theme, but I really must remember to use this sketch again one day and put those other ideas to use!

I used three baubles from a wonderful Simply Graphic retro ornament set that I got a few years ago. I decided to use some of my 6×6 patterned paper mountain – the wood planks background is by My Mind’s Eye and I think the other papers are by Basic Grey. Once I die cut the ornaments I ‘strung’ them with an older Memory Box die and then added a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my take on the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Roses

Hi there!

It’s been a long time since I played along with a My Favorite Things challenge.. I used to play a lot, but I find myself drawn more to die cutting at the moment and I don’t have many MFT dies… or so I thought.

I was reminded of the weekly sketch challenges when I saw one of my friends, Lisa Tilson, was a guest designer this month, so I decided to play along.

First stop, my Die-namics container. It turns out that I do indeed have A LOT of MFT dies, including some that would perfectly with the current MFT Sketch challenge.

I used one of my favourite MFT background stamps (Lined Up Dots) which I covered lightly and unevenly with Pumice Stone distress oxide ink to give it that distressed effect. I used the Flower Vase die with some Basic Grey patterned paper and cut the Roses in Bloom dies from some distress ink panels. I adhered a coordinating strip to my card base first and then added all the elements. Finally I added a sentiment from the ANCIENT GP Wildflowers set!
