WWC291 – Fifth Week Anything Goes Challenge

Thanks so much to everyone over at Allsorts Challenge for selecting my card in their Top 5! I really appreciate it!

In our Top 5 ?

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  is the 5th week of the month, so it’s Fifth Week – Anything Goes Challenge.

This week, I have created a CAS card using Autumn colours.

A stitched circle die was embossed into the corner of the watercolour paper panel.

The little leaf from Hero Arts – Leaf Prints stamp was used to stamp using Distress ink, to get the leaves to cascade out of the circle. This was one of my first stamp sets which I haven’t used in years! 😦 I used a waterbrush to move some of the colour and add a little more in some areas. ( A little red, brown and yellow)

The sentiment from Hero Arts – Special Note of Thanks (another oldie) in Brilliance Lightning Black.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Just for You (Leaves) Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hello and welcome

I’m back to remind you about the  Penny Black Saturday September Challenge! This month the theme is  Anything Goes (Optional ‘Your Favourite Colour’).  I hope you have a chance to join in the fun!

I decided to do something different this time and not use any stamps. I have a couple of PB dies and stencils I love and decided to bring some of them out. I started by die cutting PB Flower Frolic die once in white, once in black and finally in gold making sure the die fitted along the paper cut to the card front.

Once I was happy with the copic colouring on the white die cut, I added some Gelly Roll pen along the leaves on all the die cuts, and some Wink of Stella to the flowers on the coloured piece.

The negative piece of gold card was trimmed to shape and the right side removed. It was then trimmed to fit the kraft card front.

PB Verdant stencil was used with Versamark ink to add a subtle background to the kraft card, before the gold piece was attached. I love using this stencil as it works so well with these die cut leaves. They are not the same size, but work beautifully together! Here they add the extra layer of interest to the leaves.

The black die cut was glued in place, then the gold offset and finally, the coloured piece in the middle.

The sentiment is from PB – Just for You die cut was cut in black and added at the bottom.

It is very different but was fun to play with.

I hope my card brings you a smile! 🙂

Please head over to our blog to  check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!

WWC289 – Heidi’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_1413-2.jpg

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for our new challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday! This week it is Heidi’s Challenge –Anything with a Masculine Twist.

This week, I decided to make a one layer CAS card using another image from The Cat’s Pajamas – Swanky Stamps stamps.

I just loved this image and decided to make it fun and hope it brings a smile!

After stamping the cat and Distress ink watercolouring, I added a balloon from another TCP set along with the 2 sentiments.

I couldn’t help myself and added some Wink of Stella to the balloon and Glossy Accents to his nose and mug.

I felt it needed something and so I went for a hand drawn frame.

I hope he brought you a smile.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

WWC288 – Kath’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  Kath is hosting the Challenge: All About Occasions.

This week, my card features Julie Nutting’s – Pricilla cling stamp, copic coloured and fussy cut. I love these images and haven’t pulled them out for ages. I think she’s very special.

The background die is SSS – Circle Border with gold glitter card behind.

I felt that Winnie & Walter’s large ‘cheers’ cut from black glitter card, finished it off perfectly.

I look forward to seeing what you create this week!

It’s Your Special Day (Penny Black Saturday Challenge)

IMG_1365 (2)

Hello and welcome

I’m back to remind you about the  Penny Black Saturday September Challenge! This month the theme is  Anything Goes (Optional ‘Your Favourite Colour’).  I hope you have a chance to join in the fun!

My card features  PB Stamp image – Soft Whisper stamped on watercolour paper in Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, spritzed with water), using my Misti.

Once I was happy with the colour and the panel was dry, I used a Wow embossing pen to add some random additions which were then gold embossed.

The sentiment is from PB – Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set and gold embossed on vellum. Altnew Fine Frames Dies were cut from gold card. The smallest was glued to the vellum to frame the sentiment, and then the vellum was trimmed.

The main panel was attached to the card front, with gold card addition, with fun foam.  The sentiment was then added.

I was happy with the way it turned out.  The pink branches reminds me of the flowers falling from the branches in spring and the gold makes me think of the sun flinting between the leaves

Hello and welcome

Today it’s time for the next challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday!  This week  I am hosting the Challenge: Anything Goes with a Feminine Twist.

Today’s card features MFT – Stitched Peek-a-Boo Window & Edge cut from white card.

AI – Garden Circlet MTF images were stamped on the circle cut outs and Distress watercoloured.

The garden pot from AI – Potting Shed MFT set was also coloured and fussy cut.

I added some DP as the base along with a sentiment from a very old favourite set – There She Goes – Sentiments.

It came together so quickly with so little colouring!!!

This cute card is perfect for Spring! I love the way my garden is starting to change.
