P1060398 (2)Hi there

I’m here to share a birthday card I made recently for a friend who loves cats.

It features Penny Black Slapstick/Cling stamp ‘the lookout’ which I coloured using Copic  markers.  I then fussy cut the image and mounted in on a brick work embossing folder.

Luckily, it just happens to fit the Inspired by All the Little Things #61 Challenge, the Penny Black and More – June Challenge – Anything Goes and Wednesday’s Creative Inspiration Challenge #277 – Our Furry / Feather Friends.

Circle Birthday

P1060410Hi there

My card tonight came from playing around with the idea of the 3 circles in this challenge from Freshly Made Sketches 292.

I decided to make the largest circle a little abstract using some watercolour smooching with Distress Inks and adding a die cut ‘Birthday Circle’ from Simon Says Stamps. The smallest circle uses a small  Print Block stamp which I watercoloured using my Tombow pens.

The colours also allowed me to enter it in the challenges from Color Throwdown ctd447, Addicted to Stamps and More – Anything Goes and STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge – Anything CAS Goes – Twist – Masculine Colors.


See you next time


Sweet wishes


Today’s card is one I made some time ago.

It uses one of my earliest wooden stamps, Hearts Desire – The Boyds Collection which I water coloured using Tombow pens, then  fussy cut and  mounted on foam squares. I have such a soft spot for Bears! Lol!

The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up – Heard from the Heart set.

I finished it by adding a double layer of patterned paper with a layer of white in between.  They are edged with a Stampin’Up border punch and finished with a piece of ribbon.

It fits well with the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge, CF175 – Use those Pattern Papers.


Have a good week


It’s Party Time

P1060406 (2)This birthday card is for a friend’s special birthday.

It uses a very early stamp set from My Favorite Things, Martinis on Me which I copic coloured. I added Wink of Stella on the glass to give it a bit of sparkle.  After fussy cutting, I added them to a vellum heart which I attached to coloured tag made using My Favorite Things Abstract Background Stamp. It was  white heat embossed and ink blended with Distress Inks (Tumbles glass, Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord).  I then gave it a light spray with Perfect Pearls water to add some shimmer. It was cut with the MFT Jumbo Fishtail Banners.

Unfortunately, the shimmer doesn’t show up well in the photo.

It was made using the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge – #MFTWSC 336. I am also going to add it to the Addicted to Stamps and More  June Challenge – Leave a Little Sparkle.
