I made a card!!

Hi All

It has been a while since I made a card but the idea for this card has been in my head all week after seeing the latest 'Earth' challenge at CASology

I really wanted to use this Globe image and sentiment and the 'Twilight' ink from Catherine Pooler.

A few other challenges gave me some extra ideas and the card came together finally!!

I cut out a die and stamped the image in this 'twilight' ink-I finally have found a grey ink I love-thanks Jenny for the tip on getting this ink!

I coloured in 3 flowers yellow and 3 grey with copics-even did some shading!!
Both if these so I could enter:

Less is More-3 of something
AAA Challenge-one plus 3 friends-my friends being-stamped image, copics and stitched die-oh and a matted layer-the top die is on foam pads!

I will also enter:

Inkspirational #182

Hi There,

Time for a new challenge at Inkspirational-my fav challenges-a photo challenge!

First up my card:

And now the photo that inspired my card:

There is so much here to inspire you!

I picked out the pink and blue in this card and then I based my card on the pattern of the gorgeous fun headboard-it just reminded me of medallion stamps. I used the Medallion mix set. This idea came to me after I remembered Lynn's card here on Instagram. I loved the way she combined the medallions and used the different colours-she very kindly said I could CASE her card-thank you Lynn.

I kept the base card and the label in grey to match the wallpaper grey base.

Our fabulous team made some stunning cards based on this photo-take a look here and then get crafting away!

Let's Bounce Some ideas!

Hi All

The 'Bounce' challenge at CASology got me thinking this week. I have no images of footballs etc, so I kept thinking how else could I approach this 'bounce' word?

Then pop....a light bulb moment!. I thought about when you 'Brainstorm' ideas with others-what is it you are doing....bouncing ideas until you get what you want...or just so many ideas you have bounced too much!!

Here is what I made:

It took me a while to think of a card that I would actually use until I came up with doing some stamp inside the card I stamped 'of you' I can send it!!

Plus I am entering to into AAA Card Challenge-3 plus one-no twist for me-I went with a die cut, 3 embellishments and one matted layer-my panel is popped up from the base and my middle speech bubble is popped up-although hard to see from photo!

And entering Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-AG-my speech bubbles are from Simon Says.

Have a fun day xx

Hi All

This was mean't to be a super quick card as my mojo has disappeared this week. 
I thought making a 'one layer, stamp and go' card might get it back for me.
Well no...this turned out taking ages...getting the stamps in the right place, turning into a 2 layer card-due to huge smudges everywhere on my one layer!
Still I got there in the end-slightly irritated but card made!

I made this for the Winnie and Walter 5th Birthday Bash-this is for Shay's challenge-use 5. I have used the same stamp 5 times and in 5 colours and 5 enamel dots.The stamp is-Dotty About You-from Winnie and Walter. The sentiment is also from Winnie and Walter-The Big, the Bold and Party

I used the colours from the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More-all new Carherine Pooler Inks

I liked these combo of colours as they can be used for a make or female card but I had more male cards in mind as I have a few male friends who will be celebration soon.

Have a fun Friday.

Inkspirational #181

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Inkspirational.

Our super teamie Carol has asked us to:


After a hunt through my stash box, here is what I made:

When I first began I had no idea what I was going to make. A hunt through and play around with some gorgeous stash goodies that had been sent to me from my teamies at Time Out....I came up with this.
I got the cluster of flowers from Stephnanie and the wooden centre dot and small card base from Jenny-you know these are stash that my Time Out teamies sent me 2 Birthdays ago...they all sent me so much I still have it and use it regularly-how fab is that!

So not strictly 'my stash' but kept in 'my stash' box and I consider it mine!!

We have the fabulous Lindsey joining us for this challenge and she has made an amazing card. Her blog Bashful Blogging is well worth a visit, it is full of inspiring projects.

Then pop on over to Inkspirational and see what the DT have made to inspire you.


I will enter this into:
The Card Concept-look at those background flowers, the colours and fan shapes-these are inspiration (my card is CAS and layered)
