Using Stencils!

 Hi All

Long time since I crafted but today I needed a little distraction and decided to play along with some challenges and made this using 

I was inspired by:
Time Out-easy to see the word-'tree' is what I used!
Freshly Made Sketches-used the sketch for my lay out
Just Add Ink-Timber and Twine

Goodness another card!

 Hi All

My goodness I haven't crafted in ages and then suddenly I started to stamp.

There is a lot going on in my life at the moment and I need a distraction-usually I walk but with the thunderstorms here I decided to just have a go at stamping and have enjoyed it.

This card was inspired by the photo at Less is More-think it is easy to see what inspired me when you look at the photo below!

A bit of a dark photo but as I said-thunderstorms!
And a shame the sentiment is hard to see!

Monochromatic Flowers!

 Hi There,

I have been doing a bit of stamping and today have a card inspired by a few 'monochromatic' challenges out there-

Time Out

AAA Cards

Here's my sunshine card!

I used Visible Image stamps and then used various copics to colour adding just one black gem to finish.

A Card at Last!

 Hi All

It has been a long time since I have made a card but today I was looking through my stash and found a die that would make a quick card for a male Birthday coming up.

Photo not so great but I wanted to get it done as it should be in the post!

I was helped with the inspiration from the following challenges:

Spring is in the Air!

 Hello Again!

I am here to share a card inspired by the mood board at Inkspirational-quite a lot inspired me-the colours, the leaves and the butterfly. I also just loved Carol's card here and basically CASed it!

I used platter stamps to all the colours then stamped the butterfly from Uniko and fussy cut this out.

I popped this up on a leaf stitched die and used a lovely Spring yellow as my base card.

I love how it turned out!

And here it is:

I will also enter the 'Spring' challenge at Less is More

For Dad xx

 Hi All

A card for Father's Day.

This one has taken me ages to finish-found it fiddly cutting up pieces of card stash to make my rainbows! When I thought I had, I realised I had missed one colour-indigo- of the rainbow so added in indigo enamel dots!

For Time Out-using the words 'rainbow' and 'gold'-the splash is delicta gold ink

CAS on Sunday-stripes

Back with the Purple!

 Hi All

Popping in with a very CAS card inspired by a few challenges:

I just used a few mini die cuts-actually out of a big heart die!-and layered them up to make a mini flower. Hunted down some tiny gems as enamel dots were too big as I wanted to make it all mini to enter the challenge at Inkspirational
Sentiment heat embossed.
All monochrome for the challenge at Addicted to CAS
I will also enter Tic-Tac-Toe-it fits 2 lines-purple, embossing and die cuts and the line-die cuts, free and birthday.


Fun to make

2 cards-one day!

 Hi again,

Not often you see me-then twice in one day!

To be honest my last card was made a long time ago but this one was made today and I realised I needed to post as the challenge is soon closing.

This is for my Dad and it took me ages to come up with the design. I knew I wanted to use the colours at Color Throwdown but just had no idea on the design. I played around for ages and came up with this:

The leaves from Funky Fossil saved the day for me, they finished off the card to fir in with the layered dies and it just looked right to my eye.

Have a good day x

AAA Guest Designer

Hello crafty friends,

I am very excited to be joining the fabulous team of designers at the AAA Card Challenge 

The challenge is to create a fake/torn edge using masking on your card somewhere.

Now masking is not my thing but I came up with the idea of using the torn edge die from Penny Black as my outside mask and just sponging in the centre.

I actually really like how it turned out!

The flower is from Uniko

The team have made amazing cards so pop on over to the blog for a look here and then have a play!

Time Out Inspired-at last!!

 Hi All

And a Happy Easter to those of you who are celebrating.

I loved the photo at Time Out this challenge as soon as I saw it. There is so much to inspire you I just couldn't focus on one thing so I went through my stash and found some pretty flower dies that look like the lilac flowers in the right hand corner of the has taken me a week to finally come up with an idea. I actually enlarged the photo near these flowers and noticed they are positioned right next to the tyre of the bicycle and this is where I took my inspiration from to make this. I do love photo inspired challenges but sometimes you really have to focus down on just one thing-a challenge but fun!


Do you see my tyre??

HB2U Neighbour!

 Hi All

I made this card the other day based on the sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches, which I really like.

I flipped the sketch. The bike stamp turned out to be bigger than I thought so it didn't work quite like how I wanted it to but I hope you can still see what I was trying to do.

This is for my neighbour who rides everywhere on his yellow bike!
