Retro background

Hello friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current Time Out challenge where the theme is ‘retro’.

I had LOTS of ideas for this one, but as I’m using wood mounted stamps this month, I pulled out my old ‘Retro Background’ stamp from Woodware. I stamped it in teal Stazon and then coloured it with rust and grey Twinkling H2Os. Soooo shimmery!

I added a sentiment from a very old (and rather sticky!) clear set to finish off my card.

Deco roses

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday!

I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. I decided to use some older Poppystamps Deco Roses corner dies that I’ve had for eons! To die cut the roses, I used some mirror card and a left over background that I had created using Ken Oliver Colour Bursts and some Cosmic Shimmer pixie powder. I really must get inky and create some new backgrounds soon – it’s so much fun to just get inky at times, isn’t it?

Anyway, I embossed a Deco sentiment from Woodware and then assembled my card. Think this one took me longer to photograph than create! It’s so difficult to capture that pixie Powder shimmer!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed winter berries

Hello There!

There’s a cool colour combo over at the Color Throwdown this week – coral, red, green and grey. Not necessarily the most traditional festive combo, but I knew I wanted to create a festive card with them, so I pulled out an older Woodware stamp and got to work.

I used a light grey card base to stamp the image in green ink; I added some clear embossing powder on top to give the image a little more ‘body’. Then I coloured each dot using my prismacolor pencils before I added some Nuvo Jewel drops on top. To finish off the card I added a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp/Gina K Stamptember collaboration set.

Spots and Butterflies

Hi there everyone

I’m back with another guest post for CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

This week, the team has come up with a great sketch which is perfect for CAS cards.

I’ve recently reorganised my craft room a bit and came across my old punches which I still can’t bear to part with. So I was delighted when I saw this sketch as it gave me the perfect opportunity to use them again! I cut the circles from some old rainbow backgrounds that I created with distress inks and adhered them to my base card. I then cut a selection of butterflies (from Penny Black, Poppystamps and Simon Says Stamp) from some glitter card and stuck them to the larger circles.

To  finish off the card, I added a sentiment from Woodware.

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).

Thanks for stopping by!

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
