I used a stencil!

 Hi All

Most of you know I am not so good a using stencils but I have here!
I used one from Funky Fossil Designs. I was having a go and it didn't go that great but not too bad. So I decided to die cut part of it and thought it looked quite good like this.
Here you are:

Have a good day x

Time Out #145

Hi All

Time for our yearly special challenge at Time Out Challenge where we are helping raise awareness of Breast Cancer. October is 'Breast Cancer Awareness' month so what better time for this challenge.

Breast Cancer has touched most of us in some way-either ourselves or Family and Friends-we all have our own stories. Early detection is the key and we should all be doing self breast cancer tests monthly-check here for how to do this-then tell your friends to do the same!

As 'Pink' is the colour to represent Breast Cancer, I made this card:

And here is the challenge:

Take a look at that optional twist-one layer with pink!!

We want to see cards that let people know you are thinking of them, sending them a hug, inspiring them....any card like this will fit our challenge.

I have used CAS-ual Fridays Ruffled Ribbon die and CAS-ual Frridays Supercalifragilistic stamp

CAS-ual Fridays is our sponsor for this challenge and if you check out there amazing store here you will be ready to shop!

Also you could win a $25 gift voucher, chosen randomly, if you twist with is a hard one this layer with pink!! But worth a go if you want to get some goodies from CAS-ual Fridays!!

Sidan is our fabulous Guest Designer for this challenge and we are over the moon she is joining us. Check out her blog here and you will love what you see.

Pop on over to Time Out and you will see a wonderful set of cards from Sidan and our Design Team.

Inkspirational #196

Hi There,

Time for a new challenge at Inkspirational

We have our Designer's choice and today Shauna has chosen the 'paper piercing' technique.

You can use any type of paper piercing-traditional, sewing etc. Here I used an embossed panel that pierced the paper for me!

That gorgeous embossed background was a gift from the lovely Joyce and when I saw it I knew it had to be used this year!

Our team have all made super inspirations for you-take a look here and join in the fun!

Have a good day x

Inkspiational #195

Hi All

We have our word prompt at Inkspirational and this time the word is:


Here is what I made:

I took the word 'crop' to be harvesting grapes to make wine!!
Sentiment and bottle die from My Favorite Things

Yes, I know the sentiment is a bit blurry but I decided to leave it this way! Yes it wasn't meant to be like this but it amused me-isn't this the way you see things after 'barrels of wine'!!

All our DT have made amazing cards-pop on over to Inkspirational and have a look!

Enjoy your day

I will enter this into:

CASology-LOL-think barrels of wine will make you LOL and a little more!!

Creativity out of Chaos!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I made this card inspired by a few challenges:

I white heat embossed the image from Visible Image (sentiment from same set) and then water coloured this in purple. I used a stamp set from PaperArtsy in pink to add the splatters mixed in with a few paint splashes.

This was inspired by all these challenges-they just all fell into place!

Addicted to CAS-pink and purple-you knew you would see me!

Have a good day x

Christmas Angel!

Hi All

A card today inspired by the  'metallics' challenge at Less is More 

I used the new set Folksy Christmas from Funky Fossil Designs.

The Angel is gold embossed onto the die from STAMPlorations. I then used this gold metallic card to cut another die from this set.

I did play around with adding in a sentiment but it seemed too much, so decided to leave it as it is.
