Best Dad Ever....STOP!

Hi All

A quick card for you today.
Well I say 'quick' but it took 4 days to come up with this idea! It may look simple but trying to mask that sentiment took so many try outs. Plus then coming up with a design took me ages.
So...not so quick but I was pleased with the end result!

This is for the 'Punctuation' challenge at CASology. I thought this was such a creative cue word and wanted to play. However I have no stamps or dies that suited it. Then one morning I remembered this sentiment stamp from Avery Elle-where the punctuation 'full stop' is a word not a sign!. I knew then this was what I wanted to use...but how???

A few days later this card was made!

I was just pleased I had thought of this idea. It was a huge challenge!

This is obviously for my Dad-who is the best Dad ever-always there for me through thick and thin-I love you Dad x

Peace on Earth!

Hi All

Happy weekend to everyone.

My card for today:

The lay out is from the latest sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch

I really like this sketch and was going to go for a flower card until I saw this card by blogging friend Pia. As soon as I saw Pia's card it gave me the idea to use my reindeer die for this sketch-thanks Pia for the inspiration! The reindeer is cut from glitter fun foam and IRL really does sparkle!

I was also going to go more whites until I saw the photo at Inspired by. I love all the warm colours in it and the wood grain. So went with this.

The snowflake has been stamped and is from my fav snowflake set this year-Let It Snow-Happy Little Stampers.

As well as the challenges mentioned I will enter it into:

Enjoy your weekend

Hi All

My card today for a few challenges:

The lay out was inspired by Rebecca's amazing card. Check it out here or below.

I went with dies all the way this time using the 'love' die from Winnie and Walter. This was cut from card that was already water coloured and had some gold spray added to it. I just added dimension using white fun foam.

The hearts are from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps-the second one and the tiny little one, I have added dimension by using that fun foam again!

I used a cream card to place these hearts on as they seemed to get lost on white card. Plus I do like to use white and cream together!

I will also enter this into:

AAA Card Challenge-inspired by a TV Show. This time I used a more modern show-Love-on Netflix, we just finished the last series and are hoping it comes back soon!

Enjoy your day x

CASE at Less is More

Hi All,

Popping in with a CASE of Rebecca's card at Less is More.

I loved Rebecca's card and come up with my take on this:

Here is Rebecca's card:

Keeping the same layout but using a stamped image instead of the die. But using the die for a sentiment. Here I have used fun foam in a reddish colour and used black card behind it to give a slight shadow.

The die is from STAMPlorations.

Hi All

I don't normally post 2 cards in one day but just realised that the My Favourite Things-Clean and Simple Challenge ends today-I thought I had a few more days! This got me motivated as I also had an idea for a card for the latest AAA Card Challenge-inspired by a TV show.

Here it is:

Are any of you old enough to remember the comedy show 'Cheers' with the actor Ted Danson? I watched this in my teenage years and loved it. So this card is a nudge to that show. I also have another....more up to date idea for this challenge but lets see if the idea turns into a you know, they don't always!

I made this card as CAS as I could, even for me....I wanted to add some of my enamel dots but stopped myself!

I have used MFT uncorked stamp set for the sentiment and the MFT die-namics wine service for the wine glasses cut in fun foam.

This goes off to my very dear niece who just got a new job!

Enjoy the rest of your day xx


Silent Night!

Hi All

I hope your weekend is going well

Here is quick card for you:

This was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. At first I had no ideas but then DT member Jen's take on the I thought was so creative-I hadn't thought of flipping it over- and an idea popped into my head-thanks Jen for the inspiration-check out her card here

The dies were a pressie from the lovely Kylie and I used glitter card to cut them out. The snowflakes were simply stamped and the sentiment heat embossed in gold-both these are from Winnie and Walter. There is lots of dimension here, with lots of different sections popped up on foam pads-although hard to see in the photo
