Wonderful Fabulous You


Scored a bit of play time in my craft room yesterday. I made my background with one of my Christmas presents...Distress Oxides...cut a stitched frame out with another Christmas present, added my favourite die cut flowers and finished it off with a sentiment I haven't used before. I must say, I gravitate to blues and yellows, probably because they look so fresh and my poppy die cuts are a fav, probably because they are always 'just enough'with out being over the top. I am adding my card to the following challenges...

Birthday Bird


My card today is a fresh coloured card. I started off by masking off a section with painters tape, then stamped my flowers randomly. I then coloured them with DI + DO's and added my sentiment. I had to add the bird as I got ink in the wrong spot...gotta love that...not!! Anyway, I quite like him as he gives the card a bit more character.

Happy Birthday Bouquet


As 2018 rapidly approaches so do next years birthdays. For this card I have used a floral set from Altenew, these flowers are rapidly becoming a favourite. I stamped some flowers on the corners then pop dotted 3 of them to give the card some dimension, stamped a sentiment and added some bling. 

For today's card, I am adding it this challenge:



Peace Love Joy


It's been a while since I have posted and the irony is that I didn't make half the amount of Christmas cards that I usually make for Christmas this year and yet my first card in ages is a Christmas card for the 2018 Festive Season! My mojo is that low, I have been struggling to be creative for months now.Today I have cased Kim's card, Kim is one of the DT members at Freshly Made Sketches and I just loved her card, thanks for the inspiration Kim as I needed it. I hope you have all had a very Merry Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2018.

Squiggly Christmas


I really need to get my Christmas card stash growing, so I'm glad to be adding another one to it. In Australia we don't really 'do' Halloween so I took up the challenge to use those colours for another theme and this is what I came up with. I made the background with DI as well as the card that I cut the Christmas tree from.
I layered it onto some black card to give it a frame and then stamped my sentiment and added some sequins to finish.

Monochrome Many Messages


Another Christmas card for my stash. For todays card, I used a set of die cuts & stamps that came off a magazine. I really like them and can see me using them a lot more. I have gone with a monochrome of purples layered over an embossed panel.

Happy Thoughts


Another card for my stamping Saturday...I made this CAS card background using Alcohol Inks on photo paper. I then added a sentiment and finished it off with some tiny punched flowers with pearls in the centre. I'm adding this card to the following challenges...





Especially for You


This is my first card for about 6 weeks, I've really lost my mojo of late but I just loved Karen D's card (see here) so much so, I cased it. I taped off the edges of my main layer and sponged the background lightly with DI's 'Broken China' then stamped my image with the same DI, restamping it a couple of times to make it stand out, then I finished it off with a new sentiment. I'm adding my card to the following challenges:
