Sending Hugs

 Hi All

I have a few cards I need to make so had a hunt around blogland to find some challenges to inspire me to get inky.

The 3 challenges you see below inspired me to create this:

Just Us Girls-photo-the flowers I loved and naturally the colours-I inked and coloured in with copics.

CAS on Friday-sketch-used for the design

AAA Cards-no layers and sending hugs-this is off abroad so one layer is perfect PLUS my fav kinda card!

Smile!

 A Happy Smile to you All,

A card for you today using some of my very first stamps and dies-I got them from Papertreyink.



This was inspired by the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches
I used some scrap card that had been previously sponged to die cut the leaf and just picked out the blue to stamp the water splash.

Have a fun day xx

CASology #395

 Hi All

A new challenge at CASology

And our cue word is 'One'

Here is my take:

I went for my fav 'one' layer card!

But there are so many ways you can interpret this word and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

The flower stamp is from Funky Fossil Designs and the sentiment from STAMPlorations

Pop on over to CASology and take a look at what our Design Team and Guest Designer have made to inspire you.

Enjoy!

Finally a card!

 Hi All

Popping in with a card that took me 3 days to make-just couldn't get it the way I wanted but finally got there!

It was inspired by the photo at Fusion-loved the rainbow line of crayons so made a watercolour background in rainbow colours!

I will also enter it into:

Poppy Stamps-AG-the flower die is from poppy stamps

Seize The Birthday-option not taken-this card is for a friend's Birthday.

Have a good day x

Time Out Guest Designer!

 Hi All

I have the honour of being the Guest Designer of my previous challenge Time Out.

And I am super excited to be joining the amazing team because this is a special challenge sponsored by our very own Kim. Kim is not only a card maker but so very creative in so many ways. And one of these is her amazing skill of sewing and she has her own Etsy store RunningStitchDesign-pop on over there and you will see a delight of goodies-I have quite a few!!

 And today, Kim and her store are our super sponsors!!

We have a photo of one of her gorgeous bags she made as our inspiration and here it is:

How wonderful is this-and this bag could be your's if you win!

You can be inspired by anything in the photo-the bag, the colours, the stitching (like me!), the mug, pencil, 'imagine'....anything!

So I went with a 'Kim' focused card-taking in all she loves in making her bags, the colours-the photo is quite dark but I wanted you to see the stitched white card as I thought this went with the theme!


This really was out of my comfort zone-using tiny images, fussy cutting and colouring but I quite liked the end result. And actually all these images and the stitched background are from team member Joyce who sent me them a while ago to help me with this challenge-thank you Joyce!

The other very Guest Designer for this challenge is Nathalie and you can find her on Instagram here. Nathalie is so very creative and you can find out more about her over on Time Out. I recommend visiting her Instagram account as you will love what you see!

Now pop on over to Time Out and see what the super Design Team have made to inspire you and then take some Time Out and play along!!

CASology 394

 Hi All

Time for a new challenge at CASology

And our cue word is 'Mask'

I went for masking my sentiment with sticky notes and then stamped the striped border stamp after.

You would think this was super quick but masking is something I do not find easy so it did take me a while to get it right.

This went to my Dad back in June for Father;s Day and he loves his garden and is always tending to it so I used green as a nod to this!

Our Guest Designer is Karen-this is her Instagram account and she has some fab cards-check it out!
Welcome Karen, we are so pleased you joined us.

Then pop on back to CASology and see what our wonderful Design Team have made to inspire you.
Enjoy!
