Day 10 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi there!

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

The sponsor for Day 10 was Winnie & Walter and the DT had come up with tons of amazing tags! I took the snowman tag that Tracey had made and used that as my inspiration for my little scene!

I stamped the images and then masked them before creating my Distress Oxide background. After I had applied a generous amount of water droplets to the background, I removed the mask and coloured the images with my Twinkling H2Os. This was another super quick tag to make – even thought the mask for the branch was rather fiddly!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Deer, I love you

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ink blending and Stamplorations is our sponsor.

I love ink blending especially with distress inks and distress oxides. I’ve been blending a lot of autumnal/Halloween colours recently so I wanted to use some different colours for this card. I ended up using Tattered Rose, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio. Don’t think I’ve ever used this combo before!

I used the Poppy Stamps Playful Deer Collage die to cut my card base and then stuck the blended background behind it. To finish off my card, I added a Winnie & Walter sentiment and a few hearts that I had cut from glitter cardstock.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Kaja from Kajcyika Crafts. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Spotlight on you

Hi there!

The theme for this month’s Seven Hills Crafts challenge is ‘spotlight it’ and here is my entry. Honestly, I had all month to come up with something and I only just made it before the challenge deadline!

Anyway, for my card, I used two products from Seven Hills Crafts – a stencil from Echo Park and a sentiment from Winnie & Walter. I masked off the heart as I was stencilling with grey shades of distress ink and then used the reverse of the mask when it was time to add the colour to the heart.

To finish off the card, I added the sentiment and a few clear sequins. A super simple card, but the technique is so effective, don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn in the air

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. The days are getting shorter and the weather is definitely crisper – yes, autumn is in air here in the UK so it seems apt that this fortnight’s theme is ‘Autumn Colours’. Uniko is our sponsor.

For my card, I used a stamp from my favourite Simon Says Stamp set (Fractile Leaves) plus a sentiment from Winnie & Walter which I inked up with Delicata brown shimmer ink which I covered in clear embossing powder.

Can we just take a moment to admire that Delicata ink? It is soooo shimmery! Absolutely gorgeous!

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencil and then blended with baby oil. First time doing that and I love the effect – will be using it again! Anyway, I resisted the urge to add some bling. I think this could make quite a good maculine card, do you?

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – clean and simple.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by our Guest Designer, the super-talented Hannelie from Desert Diva. I’m sure many of you already know her and her amazing creations – but for those of you who don’t, you should definitely drop by her site – you are in for a treat!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Gilded Hello

Hello!

I went to the Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace for the first time in a long time today! There were definitely far fewer exhibitors on site compared with the last time I went. I guess that reflects what’s happening to the industry here in the U.K…..but there were some fabulous companies there and I managed to buy a few goodies…..

I put some of them to use straightaway – I made this card using my new Clarity Stamp stencil. I applied Versamark ink using a sponge blending tool and then added some Ranger sticky embossing powder. It stays sticky for a decent amount of time after heating and so I applied some fabulous gilding flakes from Crafty Notions. Aren’t the flakes pretty? Such different colours too – but they were hard to photograph! Anyway, I finished off the card with a nice bold Winnie & Walter die.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rainbow Maker, Day 5 cards

Hello everyone!

Day 5 of Online Card Classes’ Rainbow Maker class was all about rainbow stencilling mediums! I had such fun playing with my inks, stencils and pastes today! Have made a lot of backgrounds, but not yet converted them into cards so I will add them to this post when I’ve done them.

Anyway, as you can see, I did manage to convert one background into a card. The background was created using the ‘heat embossed overlay technique’ with a Dutch Doobadoo stencil and some Hero Arts white satin pearl embossing powder. I love the effect of this technique – but it was so difficult to capture in a photo!

Anyway, I finished off the card with a sentiment from Walter and Winnie which I cut from some glitter paper, plus a few glittery stars!

Thanks for stopping by!
