Here’s to YOU!

Hello and welcome

I had lots of fun creating this fun celebration card featuring Newton’s Nook – Cocktail Mixer stamp set. I am playing along with Newton’s Nook Inky Paws colour challenge using pink, orange, green and yellow!

After stamping the drinks and Distress watercolouring them, they were masked ready for ink blending the circles.

Next was stamping the sentiments using Brilliance – Lightning Black ink for some added shine.

More shine came from Wink of Stella, Gelly Roll pen and some coloured gems.

Such a bright happy card for lots of occasions!

Today’s card features PB – Winsome Wreath, a new to me stamp. So I loved colouring it.

After gold heat embossing, I watercoloured using a mix of Distress Inks and Tombow pens.

The sentiment is from PB – Special Thoughts stamp set.

I loved the way it looked. It was so soft and feminine, perfect for Mum or any special lady.

Happy Saturday everyone. It’s time for a new challenge over at LIM. The challenge is to create using the theme: Use a Tag.

My card uses some fun sets from Newton’s Nook – ‘Newton’s Donut’ and ‘Cat Treats’.

The sentiments and small images were stamped on a strip of white card and watercoloured before being added to the side of the card front.

The large donut image was stamped on the tag, watercoloured and the icing covered with Glossy Accents to add some fun!! The birthday sentiment is from the ‘Cocktail Mixer’ set. The edges had distress ink added as well as a scrap of hot pink ribbon for the bow. It was added to the front with raised tape.

Lace Cover Die (HLS – Dies)

Hello and welcome

We’re back with a new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers –  Anything Goes with Dies – May .   As always, anything goes in this challenge. So, I hope you’ll find time in  your busy life to join in the fun this month!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 8ff64-hls2bag2bbadge.png

My card features Altnew – Doodled Lace Die cut from kraft cardstock. This was one of my first Cover Dies I ever bought as I just loved as it’s so different with it’s obvious floral lacy design.

The panel was coloured using Prismacolor pencils before being added to black card front.

I have always loved this pretty die and at the end I had a time deciding whether to use back or white for the background.

I decided not to add a sentiment but wait to see how I wanted to use it.

Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!

I look forward to seeing what you create this month!

My card features another of my favourite PB images – For Goodness Sake stamp . Looking at this little scene it could be used for many occasions including Easter. I just love Penny Black’s sweet images as well as watercolouring, so this card is perfect. Even though I love floral and cute, I like to change it up. This time I decided to go with Cute!

The sentiment is from PB – Sprinkles and Smiles set. This stamp is sooo cute. I love f
