Blended eggs

Hi everyone!

Happy Hump day! Can’t believe it’s Wednesday already, can you?

March is really busy for me with lots of birthdays, but I also enjoy making Easter cards as my Easter supplies get very little love during the rest of the year.

For this card, I used the Poppystamps Ribbon and Bow Egg die that I’ve had for ages, but never used, together with some smaller eggs from the Egg Cetera set.

I actually thought this card idea would be really quick but it ended up being anything but that! I didn’t like my first few ink blended eggs, and then after I had stuck everything down, I decided I didn’t like the background I’d chosen. Luckily everything peeled off easily!

I ended up using a background embossed with a fun folder from Carabelle Studio and I added a sentiment from Woodware.

I’m entering this into the current Time Out challenge (bold) and also the Poppystamps challenge (clean and simple).

Bubble birthday

Hi everyone!

I have a LOT of birthdays in March, so I am busy replenishing my birthday cards! Here’s one that I made with the new Chunky Greetings set from Woodware. It reminds me so much of the bubble writing that I used to do at school!

I stamped, embossed and coloured the greeting using Distress Oxide inks and then added a little Simply Graphic die to complete the card. I actually added the bow from another present die as I felt the die cut needed a little more height. I added a glitter dot to hide the join.

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

Gilded Flower

Hello everyone!

I bought a couple of new Woodware stamps at the start of the year and have been wanting to use this beautiful big bloom for a while. It’s a large image and I thought it would be perfect to use with this week’s sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

This was very quick to make – less than 15 minutes! I stamped the image and embossed it with Ranger sticky embossing powder. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Leaves gilding flakes. I die cut the image and stuck it on top of the two strips of glitter paper that I had stuck to the card base.

Very easy, but effective! Love the shimmer so much!

Owls Line Up!

Hi everyone!

I’m participating in the ‘Work your stash Wednesdays’ challenge on Instagram and thought I’d also share this week’s card here.

The challenge theme was ‘happy birthday’ and I used a fabulous owl stamp from Woodware that I bought last year but hadn’t managed to use.

To be honest, I’m not sure about this card. Maybe it’s because I generally prefer smaller images… or maybe it’s my colouring. Not sure…..

The sentiment is a die cut from Lawn Fawn.

Go Wild

Hi there!

The theme for this fortnight’s Less is More challenge is ‘cute/one layer card’ and I immediately thought of this gorgeous Woodware lion that I had bought on pre-order. He arrived yesterday and I couldn’t wait to ink him up and get colouring.

The image is MUCH bigger than I was expecting, so I stamped it on a 7×5 card base as I wanted to still have a good amount of white space on my card. I used my prisma coloured pencils to colour it in – I still have a lot to learn with these pencils, but this was a great image to practice with!

I edged the image with a light green pencil and added a sentiment from the stamp set to finish it off.

A bunny Easter egg!

Hi there!

I finally got round to using this cute Avery Elle Easter image that I have had for a couple of years! Such fun to colour with my Twinkling H2Os! I added a Woodware sentiment and used Lawn Fawn dies to add interest to the background.

I’m entering this into the Seven Hills monthly challenge, the Color Throwdown challenge and also the current AAA challenge (shiny spring).

Thanks for stopping by!
