Inkspirational #178

Hi All

And welcome to our first challenge at Inksprational for 2019.

This challenge has been chosen by our fabulous teamie Anila.

She wants us to make a card using:


Here is what I came up with:

I used the background full floral stamp by CAS-ual Fridays-heat embossed onto the the kraft card. I die cut the 'smile' sentiment from this-also CAS-ual Fridays. Then die cut the sentiment again in fun foam to add dimension and used a burghaundy card base before the kraft base.

Have a look at the amazing DT kraft projects here and then get crafty and join us.

Let is Snow!

Hi There

Snow is forecast here so here is my card today inspired by a few challenges and I decided to go with my 'one layer, stamp and go' card-you know these are my fav cards to make:

I have added texture here using my linen embossing plate but it is hard to see in the photo-a little dull here in London!

All these stamps are from Happy Little Stamper and stamped with my now favourite inks from Catherine Pooler 

The layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches

I used the blues so it really fitted the 'Frozen' challenge at CASology

And the 'Snowflake' challenge at Addicted to CAS

Have a fun day x

WWC203 Karen's ''All About Occasions' Challenge

Hi All

This is my second Guest Design card for Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. This time it is Karen's ''All About Occasions' Challenge.

I made this card that could be used for so many Occasions.

This is actually a CASE of blogging friend Jeanne-she sent me this die from Poppy Stamps for Christmas and the Xmas card she made inspired me to make this card. I don't usually make cards with such detail but loved her Xmas card and this idea for my card just wouldn't go away-so I gave it a go and love how it turned out-so thank you Jeanne!

All the Design Team have made amazing cards-check them out here and then join in the fun!

I will enter this into:
