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…

Fusion – Easter

The Fusion card challenge theme is Easter, but I chose to go with just the sketch… …and I flipped it horizontally: I needed a birthday card, and went for it. I used a We R Memory Keepers journaling card from a big set of 4×6 and 3×4 cards. I love the set and wish I…

Freshly Made Sketches #282

I absolutely love Cecile’s sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #282: How adorable is that!? Once again, I used the opportunity to make a Mother’s Day card: I know it’s a holiday of flowers, but moms are made of all sorts of women and not all women like flowers or pink. Here I went with stars,…

CASology #239 – landmark

The cue card for CASology #239 is: With all the great stamps that came out recently focused on big cities and landmarks, this could be a fun one! Here is my card: I don’t have any of the aforementioned stamp sets, but luckily I had a small Eiffel Tower stamp. It inspired me to make…

Color Throwdown #432

It’s a bright and bold combination for Color Throwdown #432: Here is my card:   The background is stenciled with ink and the stars are JilliBean Soup stamps. My favourite thing about this card is the offset HOORAY 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

S.I.P. #88 -anything but a card

This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a bit of a shake up: I went with a tag: The background is stenciled in yellow ink. I went with other bright colours (almost keeping them all primary). I dig the HOORAY die cut letters filled in with other colours 🙂 This tag is so cheery! As a…

CASology 236 – romance

CASology 236 is keeping the love vibes of February going with this week’s cue card: I took things a bit literally because I had a wooden embellishment that fit the bill:I inked the wooden embellishment with some gold. I die cut some hearts around the heart and arrow stamp and placed some gold vellum behind…

CASology 233 – glisten

GLISTEN is the cue card for CASology 233: I loved this as a cue card. It has so many possibilities!  I wish I had thought of stars, but I went with water: I have been hoarding this DoCrafts paper and use it sparingly. I felt the rain drops would work here. I think it’s so…

CTD 426 – grey, red & kraft

The colour combination for Color Throwdown 426 is grey, red and kraft: It’s a versatile and exciting combination. I considered a Valentine’s Day card, but went for something different instead: I hadn’t had a chance to use the bow dies yet, and I wanted to take them for a spin. Pretty cute I think! I…

Fusion card challenge – 3rd anniversary

I had been meaning to take part in the Fusion card challenge for a while now, and it happened to be their third anniversary! challenge that I took the plunge: Here is what I came up with: I chose both the sketch and the photo. The elements I went with were the brown from the…

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…

CYCI 143 – sketch challenge

I am keeping up with my “back to challenges” streak with the three week-long challenge at Can You Case It? I have been meaning to start my Valentine’s Day cards and thought this sketch might get me in the mood. It certainly did, but my cold says that one card is enough for now 😀…
