What part of Meow don’t you get?

Hi everyone!

I spent today sorting out all my old wood-mounted rubber stamps! I had such fun rediscovering them! I actually used one of them on today’s card – the sentiment is an older stamp from The Cat’s Pajamas! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing more of my older stamps over the next few weeks!

Anyway, I coloured a Tim Holtz Crazy Cat using my Twinkling H2Os and used my favourite stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to anchor the image.

I’m entering this card in the Timeout Challenge (CASE with your own twist) and the Color Throwdown challenge (dark pink, pale pink, green and white).

Thanks for stopping by!

Bright Anniversary

Hi Everyone

It’s still so hot and sunny here in London – I’m sure it can’t last much longer. My craft room is like an oven, so I was only in there for a short amount of time today!

Here is my card – inspired by the Ellen Hudson June Pinsights challenge. The dies and sentiment stamp are by Essentials by Ellen and I also used a Tim Holtz flower stencil on the hearts and base card.

I’m entering this into the Ellen Hudson challenge and also the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Thanks for looking!

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!

Hi Everyone!

I’m back in my craft room after being away and it feels so good!

The theme for this week’s Less is More challenge is ‘shadow’ so I used a shadow/stencilling technique that Shari Carroll shared at Simon Says Create in 2015.

I used SSS fog card as my base and applied SSS Smoke ink over a Tim Holtz stencil and then moved it slightly before applying Lawn Fawn yeti ink. I used SSS banner dies to cut the panel and cut a vellum banner using the same die set, cutting it twice to remove the fishtail portion of the banner.

I cut the MFT Cheers die and three times – once with DCWV glitzy paper (isn’t it fabulous?!) and twice with white cardstock and then stuck them together before adding it to my card. I’m also entering this into the current SSS Flickr challenge –‘anything goes’.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rainbow Flowers

Hi there!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is ‘rainbow’. I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies to cut the flowers and then stuck them to a distressed background (which has a generous coating of distress mica spray – gotta love that sparkle!). Sentiment is by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.

Thanks for stopping by!
