One Card-lots of Loves!

 Hi All

At Time Out they are challenging us to be 'in love'.

I haven't been crafting much but thought this would be a good opportunity to make a valentine's card for hubby using all the things I love about card making:

-one layer


-stamping only and off the edge

-positioning in the right hand corner

-enamel dots

-black and white stripes

-and of course my linen embossing plate

So a card full of love for hubby and of my card making style-here it is:

So thank you Time Out for getting me crafting!
I would also like to enter it into:

Have a good day x

CASology #399

 Hi All

Time for our first challenge of 2022 at CASology and our cue word is 'Renew'

I went with renewing a friendship and what better way to do that than to send with the sentiment 'Let's chat'!!

Simple die cut bubble with a stamped sentiment all in one corner to keep the card as CAS as possible!

Our team have all come up with new some super inspiration-take a look here and then join us!

Gin Time!

 Hi All

A very Happy New Year.

I haven't bought new stamps for ages but just before Christmas I bought 2 sets from Visible Images-ones I knew would be used a lot!

My niece just got engaged on Christmas Day and I wanted to make her a card:

I didn't add a sentiment as I thought it looked just right as it was.
I haven't heat embossed for a while so it took a few attempts!

I am going to enter this into:

Time Out and Crafty Friends Inspire!

 Hi All

Hope you had a very peaceful Christmas.

I actually made some cards yesterday and am hoping this is a good sign that my mojo is returning!

As soon as I saw the challenge at Time Out-Inspiration I knew what I wanted to make!

I had seen a card by Hanniele back in June and asked her if I could CASE it and she kindly said yes! Have a peak at her card here-normally I would have made the card a one layer as well but wanted to choose the option at Time Out and add shock the DT!!

Here is my version:

I have always loved cream and white in card making and yellow just seemed fun to brighten up a dull Winter's day. I placed the sentiment to tuck in the curve of the yellow swirl.
I enjoyed making this and a huge thank you to Hanniele for inspiring me!

Have a fun day!

CASology #398

 Hi All

Time for our last challenge of 2021 at CASology and our cue word is 'Above'.

Here is my take:

I went through a few ideas for this and after looking through my dies came up with the idea of layering dies on top if each other-one 'above' the other!

I have used used an open die 'above' the solid die and cut it in vellum-vellum really is a great idea when making CAS cards!

Our Design Team have come up with some great inspiration for you-pop on over to our blog and have a look!
Then enjoy playing along!!

Time Out-Precious!

Hi All

Been a while since I have been crafty but I needed a card for my Mum and Dad's 59th Wedding Anniversary so got to it!

My craft buddy Anushree makes some super gifts and she made one for my Mum and Dad-have a look below and I based my card on this. You can see Anushree's super collection of gifts here

As you can see I got the woodgrain in using an embossing plate and the gold in by gold embossing some splatter stamps then layered up with the die cuts. I really love the card and was so pleased I did after so long not crafting!

Here is Anushree's super gift:

I am popping this off to Time Out-cue word-Precious...nothing more precious than 'love'-they also have a DT call, check it out.

Have a good day x

CASology #397

 Hi All

We have a new challenge at CASology and our cue word is 'Type'.

I did have a few ideas for this but decided to go the obvious route and use a typewriter set but I bet you can think of many other ideas for this word!

This sweet typewriter stamp set and die are both from Newton's Nook Designs
I stamped and die cut the image deciding to go with these fun colours as I thought it could be used for lots of occasions and either a guy or gal! Who wouldn't love a green typewriter!
I grounded the image with some strips of coloured card.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Claire. I am a long time admirer of Claire's cards and have followed her for years. Pop on over to her blog here and you will see why!

Pop on over to CASology and see what the fab Design Team and Claire have made to inspire you.

I will enter this into Fusion-inspired by the photo!
