S.I.P. 81 – black, white and…

Hey there! The colour challenge at Stamp Ink Paper this week is black, white and a bit of colour: As February is coming up and I have been seeing so many fantastic black, white and red Valentine’s Day cards, I chose red as my additional colour. I have been drawn to cards with embossed layers…

ctd 424 – black, green & hot pink

It’s black, green and hot pink for Color Throwdown 424: I admit I kinda dig those oven mitts in the inspiration image 🙂 Here’s my card: I used a Momenta Art-C stamp and die set for the the flags and stamps. The hexagonal and scalloped tags are Sizzix. Lots of the edges are inked in…

DeviantArt Holiday Card 2016

Hello! Just a quick post to share my card for this year’s DeviantArt Holiday Card Project 2016. It is the event’s tenth year! I wanted to keep it not too “Christmas-y” and tried for more of a wintery theme. The inside is stamped with “Happy Holidays”. I used pop dots for the tree die cuts…

Christmas shaker cards

Using the Recollections Shimmer Noel paper pad and Jillibean Soup small circle shakers I made a bunch of these sparkly, feminine Christmas cards: They all have a glittery silver snowflake die cut to bring in some more sparkle. I added some sentiment stickers from this year’s stuff at Michaels. I feel they really made the…

Christmas cards – batch #1

Hello! I am sure you have also been keeping busy with holiday makes. These are the first batch I made this year: Lots of die cuts, cut outs and sparkle. I was still getting in to the hang of things with this batch, so I like some more than others. These were an order, and…

Day Of The Dead greeting card

Hi there! Here is a lovely sugar skull-themed greeting card: I combined an Inkadinkadoo stamp with some Authentique paper to create a Day of the Dead themed greeting card. I chose “Celebrate” as my sentiment because the Day of the Dead is a day of celebration. Looking at this again, I think it needs an…

CASology 206 – art

I read this week (regarding writing) that one word prompts were ineffective and not challenging. Be it writing or paper crafting, I beg to differ. The cue card this week at CASology is art: Here is my interpretation: I was happy to use one of my newly acquired Darice embossing folders! The stars are Heidi…

CYCI 128 -Shine

It’s a sketch challenge at Can You Case It this week: I had a birthday card to make for my bestest friend so I used this as an opportunity to give her a reminder: The sentiment is stamped with some American Crafts metallic ink. The jewels are die cuts that I coloured with a silver…

C.T.D. 398 -raspberry, pink, green, yellow

The Color Throwdown challenge this week includes these colours: Here is what I made:   The lime green spray ink on the card and ink on the wooden embellishments does not show up well in the photo unfortunately, but it’s there! I used two different stamps for the sentiments and framed them with inked wooden…

CASology 203 – congratulations

The CASology cue card this week is congratulations: It’s that time of year where people are moving ahead in their lives and there are plenty out there who need some congratulations! I decided to go with an engagement themed card: I took about twenty photos of this card and none of them turned out, so I…

S.I.P. 53 – Case the DT!

Stamp Ink Paper‘s challenge this week is to case the design team! Pretty exciting! Each card was gorgeous and tempting, but I ended up choosing Justin’s: I chose this one because I loved the colour scheme and that the elements worked really well together. Full disclosure though, a part of why I chose this one…

C.Y.C.I. 125 – red, grey, white, black

It’s my favourite colour combination for the challenge at Can You Case It this week! I got some new dies and was happy to use a We R Memory Keepers Cut Outs for the chevrons on this card. I like all the sharp angles and the way the colours go so well together. I added…
