CASology #249 – warm

CASology #249‘s cue card was particularly inspiring: Here is where I went with it: I used a punch for the circle in the middle (forgetting I had just bought circle dies… :D). Some extra sprays of yellow/orange spray ink made it darker and warmer, but maybe a bit too dark cause the sun stamp needed…

CASology #244 – strong

NOTE: A big thanks to Rachel for the honourable mention last week for CASology #243 – icing! ❤ The cue card for  CASology #244 is strong: I am on a Mother’s Day card kick right now, and this cue card is a great prompt for one of those! Just one spritz of spray ink, one…

C.T.S. #208

Hey there! I finally had some time to make a card. This one is for CAS(E) This Sketch #208: I had a lot of fun thinking about this one, and here is the card I came up with: I used Art-C stamps for the Happy Birthday sentiment (24667 R6). I used Hero Arts Origami Animals…

VENTURE greeting cards

Hello! I have some cards to share that aren’t for a challenge for once 🙂 I had these on the back burner for a while and recently sat down to make them: Some airplane and globe die cuts and metal travel-themed embellishments enhance the map background panels. The sentiment panels were spray inked and stamped…

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…

SIP 82 – natural elements

Challenge 82 at Stamp Ink Paper is natural elements, a refreshing prompt that makes me think of the warmer seasons to come. I used a wood grain embossing folder for the background panel to start the natural elements right away. I added some twine and some spray inked, die cut feathers. Finally, I kept the…

Halloween greeting card – eyeball shaker

Hey there! I am excited to show you this shaker card I made with Jillibean Soup mason jar shaker card pieces. I am a big fan of shaker cards but these are the first ones I have made. On some of them, I coloured the back of the googly eyes with a red permanent marker…

Halloween cards – graveyard dance

Hello. I am here with a greeting card post! I have many made, which is maybe why I have less time to write blog posts about them? 😉 There is a layer of patterned paper on the card stock (Recollections). The next layer is spray inked and embossed with a gravestones and rats (Heidi Swapp,…

Back To School Album (and update)

Hi there! It has been a while but I have lots to show you! Shall we start with this back to school album? I cut some kraft paper to fit journaling cards. I spray inked both sides with a Heidi Swapp green to add some shimmer. Washi tape was used for binding, inspired by  these…

S.I.P. 56 -Christmas In July

The Hallowe’en decorations are slowly starting to fill the shelves of our favourite stores, but Stamp Ink Paper took it one step further this week: I opened up my Christmas supply box and got to work: I used some Hero Arts stamps for the ornament and stamped sentiments. Beside it is a jewel die cut…

CASology 202 – masculine

It’s a timely masculine challenge over at CASology this week: Here is my interpretation: I put down a couple of spritzes of spray ink , then stamped, heat embossed and die cut the images and sentiment (Tim Holtz). And voila, I am one card closer to nailing down CAS standards! 😀 Thanks for stopping by!…

SIP 49 – burlap flowers

It’s a floral challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week: In my ongoing effort to go through older supplies, I took out the last of my burlap flower stickers. I used spray ink to colour them. The back panel is dry embossed and had punched corners and inked edges. The sentiment (Art-C) is stamped….
