Another Christmas card!

Hi All

I had my set FA-LA-LA from Funky Fossil Designs still out on my desk from the card I made the other day plus this kraft stitched die so decided to make another Xmas card!

All the burgandy has been heat embossed and then the 2 green pines stamped.

Guest Designer at AAA Cards!

Hi All

I am very excited today to be Guest Designer at AAA Cards. I was so honoured to be asked.

I went super CAS with this card:

The challenge is:

Here is the colour palette that you can use if you want:

I love using just one corner for cards and went with optional colours picking out black, green and red! Perfect for a one layer Christmas card that uses Funky Fossils-fa-la-la stamp set.

The design Team have all made amazing cards-check them out here and then get inky!

Folksy Christmas

Hi All

Popping in with a card I made for a few challenges:

I was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and the colours at color Throwdown-red, yellow and brown

I used a bauble stamp and sentiments from Funky Fossil Designs-Floksy Christmas. I stamped the baubles and then die cut the 'JOY' from Winnie and Walter. I die cut 'JOY' again in some brown fun foam and re-added the bauble-adding lots of sparkle to the 'JOY' but hard to see in this photo (London is rainy and dull!). The sentiments are also stamped in brown.

Another Xmas card done!

Enjoy your day x

Time Out #146

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Time Out.

This time we are challengeing you to be 'Encouraging'

I actually sent this as a Birthday card but to one of my dear blogging friends who has always encouraged thought it suitable for this challenge. I chose the dancer's colour as I know she loves bright colours in her own card making!

Using the sentiment from our wonderful sponsors Newton's Nook-from the set Uplifting Wishes

The dancer is from Visible Image

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the amazing Shawna. Her blog is a delight to visit-check it out here, you will see how inspiring she is and come back ready to get crafty with us!

Check out here what Shawna and the Desgin Team have created to inspire you.
Then time for some Time Out and get 'Encouraging'!!

I am going to enter this into:

CASology-Feather-this dancer is playing Swan Lake and her tutu is made of we all know dancer's are as 'light as a feather'!

Always and Forever!

Hi All

Quick hello today for a card for the challenge at Less is More-we pick-you pick. I picked the sparkle and gloss and came up with this using gloss card, mirri gloss card and glitter card:

This card may look CAS but took me forever to make. The die from Simon Says was a pressie from a very dear crafty friend-not been used and was sat on my desk waiting. Wow I love it but hard for me. I made an inlaid die and had to cut out so mnay times to get it right! But I love it.

Decided to channel my inner Marlena who makes making cards using layers and angles look so easy....well not for me!

After making this card-I do love it-but I remembered why I am a lover of just good old stamps and ink!!

Sentiment from Uniko

Have a fun day x
