Hi Stampers, just realised I have forgotten to post my card for the January's card swap for The Card Chain Challenge. This is the card I sent Sara in Missouri...nice colours and I just love using that embossing folder that I have used on the white card and adding pearls to it. If you would like to join in with the international card swap, just click on the link and you will get all the details.

Happy Birthday

I finished this card yesterday but haven't had a chance to post it until now...I made this card for a good friend who's birthday is this week and added a bit of black to it as she loves black. Again, I have used a masterboard that I made with assorted distress ink colours. I have had this card laying around for a while so I decided to use it as my background, which meant it influenced the colours I would use other than the using bits of card that I tend to have laying around. I swiped the text panel with DI Antique Linen and stamped some script onto it with the same colour than mounted it on black. Added the little pennants under it, layered my flowers that I cut out in two different colours then mounted the Happy Birthday on top.
I'm adding my card to the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge: #402 Hearts and/or Flowers

Forever Together

Today's card has been made for a young couple who are getting engaged soon. I had made this masterboard a few weeks ago and loved how it turned out so I thought I would use it for the main focal point of my card. I then die cut some hearts and forever which I mounted on a banner, then stamped a small sentiment under it and finished it off with some pearls. I just love the freshness of the colours and hopefully the young couple will to.

Feathery Birthday

My card today is for an upcoming special male birthday, I had this masterboard laying around that was a bit dark and murky, so I thought it might work for this card being that it was for a male. I got to use my feather die cuts for the first time as well as my new birthday die cut. I embossed across the top of my masterboard with an embossing folder, layered the die cuts then stamped wishes under the birthday sentiment. I also dabbed some Perfect Pearls Mist on just to give it a little bit of something else.

I'm adding my card to:

Monochromatic Birthday

I've made this card with my cousin who is having a birthday next week. As it is a male card, I have gone with monochromatic colours and used one of my new dies and a bit of bling to make it pop a bit.

Birthday Bubbles

A wet Saturday here in North Queensland, Australia but that's a good thing as we desperately need the rain and it makes it a perfect day to play in my craft room. I have a male 50th coming up next week and I really didn't know what to do for the card but after seeing the latest sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches, I thought this would work nicely. I had some premade master board laying around which I thought would look good framed in black so that's what I went with. I stamped the bubbles, highlighted a few with white gel pen and mounted the sentiment over the top. I'm adding my card to the following challenges....

Again, I have used a masterboard that I had laying around that I mounted on coloured card. For this card, I also got to use another new die,(the flowers) and a new stamp from a stamp set that I got for Christmas....loving using my new things! 😊

Happy Birthday...21 today!

Hello Stampers! Well it's been a while since I have posted on my blog but as we know it's been the 'silly season' where life just gets so hectic. In saying that, for me it was hectic leading up to Christmas but then it all came to a halt! We had a quiet Christmas with family and a very quiet New Year. DH had to work and DD - 19 & DS -20 went out with their friends to bring the new year in, so I ended up home alone...I could have gone to the neighbours but I just couldn't get motivated so actually happily stayed home and did a movie marathon, something that is a first for me. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and had fun bringing in the New Year and are all ready for a crafty 2017.
I made this card for DD's boyfriend who has just turned 21 and I got to use a new die, one of my Christmas presents to make it. I had the masterboard laying around and thought it looked good with die cut out in black. So I framed it in black, stamped the 21 and wrote today! on it by hand (something I really don't like doing) and mounted it on another die to finish it off. He liked it and made a point of telling me he really liked the card so I am very pleased.
I'm posting my card to....

White Christmas

I'm on a roll today...another Christmas card for my collection and for this card I used Bonnie's card from CAS Watercolour Card Challenge for inspiration which I think is just stunning! The DT from CAS Watercolour Card Challenge's latest challenge is to use Text other than your Sentiment and I'm also adding my card to Power & Spark who want Pink and Crafty Cardmakers who asked for Embossing. Well my day of stamping is sadly coming to an end...I hope your weekend is off to a good start with lots of stamping. Thanks for popping in...

Merry Everything

Another Christmas card for my stamping Saturday...for this card I have once again used a watercolour background and then stamped my Christmas lights. All of the Christmas stamps I used, I have used for the first time...always a good feeling. I then traced my Christmas light lead with glitter to jazz it up a bit. I'm adding my card to the latest Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge who want Watercolour and Christmas Card Challenge who asked for Glitter. Thanks for popping in...


Christmas Wishes

Well it's been a while since I have posted a card and of course Christmas is on everyone's mind as it is mine, so today's card is just that. I have used a watercolour background with a die cut Christmas tree and a gold punched star. I then stamped Christmas Wishes by using two different sets and added another little star to the sentiment. I'm entering my card to the Happy Little Stampers November challenge who want 'Watercolour' and to ABC Christmas Challenge who asked for 'Wish'. Thanks for stopping in...

From our Family

After the hectic week I have had, it was nice to sneak out to my craft room and have a bit of a play. Obviously Christmas cards are high on everyone list as well as mine and as I was going through my emails, I spotted a card that Therese Calvird made for the Altenew blog and I just loved the simplicity of it so much I had to case it. For my card I actually used 2 different trees and three different colours and took the plunge and used black as one of those colours, I also added a bit of bling to give it a bit of sparkle as it was a bit dark but overall I am really happy with the end result, thanks for the inspiration Therese. I'm adding my card to these blogs...Stamps & Stencils want an Element of Nature and Art Impressions are Prepping for Christmas. Thanks for stopping in, until next time, happy stamping.
