Color Throwdown 490

It’s pastels for Color Throwdown 490: I felt like making a girly card: I used a craftsmart stamp and die set from Michaels and craftsmart inks. There’s a bit of glitter on the bubbles to help them stand out. I added some to the starfish in her hair as well, but after I took photos…

CASology 297 – active

The cue card for CASology 297 is active: I really had to think about how I could do this one. This is what I came up with: I used my TCW mini tangled web stencil and an Inkadinkacling (Woodland Trail set). The sentiment is from Michaels, one of those small wooden ones they have near…

Less Is More 369

The theme for Less Is More 369 is bring something back.   I took out a Darice embossing folder I had sitting in my stash for a long time and some Studio G stamps from Michaels that were pretty lonely. With all the new stuff I have picked up lately, it was interesting to rifle…

Color Throwdown 489

The colours for Color Throwdown 489 are red, green and white: Kinda summery, or even Christmas-y. Continuing my clean and simple streak, this is what I made: I used the versatile Neat & Tangled Medallion Flower Builder stamp set. I want to play with that one some more one day. That wraps up my challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 333

This is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches 333: Here is my take on it: I also used the Pinkfresh Studio’s Little Love stamp set for this as well. The ink for the sentiment is Distress Oxide in Cracked Pistachio. Thanks for stopping by!   This card is available here. You can support A Bit…

CASology 296 – parent

The cue card for CASology 296 is parent: I considered a Mother’s Day card, but I decided to use another new stamp set (Pinkfresh Studio’s Little Love). I coloured the little bunny with Copics and added some clear Sakura glitter gel pen to the star balloon for a bit of sparkle. The congratulations stamp is…

Stamp Ink Paper 146 – food & drink

The theme for Stamp Ink Paper 146 is food and drink: There were so many options, but I decided to break out a stamp and die set I have not had a chance to use yet. I used Lawn Fawn Bun In The Oven here. I did some colouring with Copics on the die cuts…

Stamp Ink Paper 145 – ombre

After a hiatus, I am back in the challenge game. I am starting off with Stamp Ink Paper’s challenge 145 – ombre. I needed a birthday card, so that’s the direction I went in: There’s a bit of glitter (clear Sakura pen) on the flames of the candles. I used Sugar Pea Designs’ Celebrate All…

Valentine’s Day cards – love notes

I had a lot of Valentine’s Day cards left over from last year so I didn’t feel the need to make any for my shops. I still wanted to make something though, so I came up with these in an effort to also go through my stash of embellishments: I heat embossed the chipboard speech…

Celebrate!

Happy 2018! I hope the new year brings you much happiness. I have a super quick post to share a simple card with you.  The new year is a time of celebration for pretty much everyone, and although this card was made to mark an anniversary it feels appropriate for the beginning of this new…

quick Japanese-inspired card for the new year

I send both Christmas and New Year’s cards to my relatives in Japan. I try to make the New Year’s one post-card style and stick it in the card. The new year is a bigger deal than Christmas and I try to make it cute or clever. This year’s idea was pretty cut and dry….

I made so many card this year and haven’t shared any of them here. In fact, I haven’t posted to Instagram in about a week. So in an effort to start a 2018 resolution early, here is a blog post! This one is going to feature my favourite type of card that I made this…
