Christmas in the Hills

My last card for my stamping Saturday, I painted this background with watery Distress Inks using a paper mask to make my hills. I then used a pine tree to create some interest to my scene. I then double cut my sentiment and off set the layers so it looks like snow on the sentiment as well. As you can see, the grass is starting to poke through as the snow melts which works beautifully with the latest prompt from CASology.

Mr & Mrs

The third card on my list of cards to make today...this one is for my cousin and her soon to be husband. I have part embossed my card then popdotted some flowers randomly of the embossing. I also scored the edge of the embossing just to neaten the edge and finished if off with some blue pearls (the colour of her bridesmaid) and put a small sentiment in the bottom corner. I'm adding my card to the following challenges....

Starry Birthday

Another 21st Birthday card but this time I didn't add a 21. I die cut the 'happy' and the stars then filled the cut outs with glittery DP cut from the same dies. I then stamped 'birthday' underneath to finish it off. I'm adding my card to the following challenges...

Woodgrain Birthday

It's good to be at my desk for a play day and as it so happens I have a list of cards that I need to make and this is my first card for the day. I have used some of my DP stash for my woodgrain background which I die cut the Happy Birthday out of. I also cut the top off to just give it a little something else, then I mounted a 21 to finish it off. No stamping today but that happens some days. Thanks for stopping in, I'm adding my card to the following challenges...

Seasons Greetings

Hi All, my card today was nice and easy...I decided to use some of my DP that is sitting there collecting dust and as it says it all, I just added my sentiment with a die cut banner and stamped sentiment. I like these sort of Christmas cards, nice, easy and quick. Thanks for taking a peek....I'm adding my card to the following challenges:

Joy to the World

My first Christmas card for 2017! For todays card I have used a stamp I haven't used in a long time and actually clear embossed it! I don't tend to emboss as much as I used to...I then die cut my joy and stamped the rest of the sentiment, edged my card with a cuttlebug embossing folder and added some dots to finish. I am adding my card to the following challenges...

Hi Stampers, just realised I have forgotten to post my card for the January's card swap for The Card Chain Challenge. This is the card I sent Sara in Missouri...nice colours and I just love using that embossing folder that I have used on the white card and adding pearls to it.

Happy Birthday

I finished this card yesterday but haven't had a chance to post it until now...I made this card for a good friend who's birthday is this week and added a bit of black to it as she loves black. Again, I have used a masterboard that I made with assorted distress ink colours. I have had this card laying around for a while so I decided to use it as my background, which meant it influenced the colours I would use other than the using bits of card that I tend to have laying around. I swiped the text panel with DI Antique Linen and stamped some script onto it with the same colour than mounted it on black. Added the little pennants under it, layered my flowers that I cut out in two different colours then mounted the Happy Birthday on top.

Forever Together

Today's card has been made for a young couple who are getting engaged soon. I had made this masterboard a few weeks ago and loved how it turned out so I thought I would use it for the main focal point of my card. I then die cut some hearts and forever which I mounted on a banner, then stamped a small sentiment under it and finished it off with some pearls. I just love the freshness of the colours and hopefully the young couple will to.

Feathery Birthday

My card today is for an upcoming special male birthday, I had this masterboard laying around that was a bit dark and murky, so I thought it might work for this card being that it was for a male. I got to use my feather die cuts for the first time as well as my new birthday die cut. I embossed across the top of my masterboard with an embossing folder, layered the die cuts then stamped wishes under the birthday sentiment. I also dabbed some Perfect Pearls Mist on just to give it a little bit of something else.

Monochromatic Birthday

I've made this card with my cousin who is having a birthday next week. As it is a male card, I have gone with monochromatic colours and used one of my new dies and a bit of bling to make it pop a bit.

Birthday Bubbles

A wet Saturday here in North Queensland, Australia but that's a good thing as we desperately need the rain and it makes it a perfect day to play in my craft room. I have a male 50th coming up next week and I really didn't know what to do for the card but after seeing the latest sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches, I thought this would work nicely. I had some premade master board laying around which I thought would look good framed in black so that's what I went with. I stamped the bubbles, highlighted a few with white gel pen and mounted the sentiment over the top. I'm adding my card to the following challenges....

Happy Birthday...21 today!

Hello Stampers! Well it's been a while since I have posted on my blog but as we know it's been the 'silly season' where life just gets so hectic. In saying that, for me it was hectic leading up to Christmas but then it all came to a halt! We had a quiet Christmas with family and a very quiet New Year. DH had to work and DD - 19 & DS -20 went out with their friends to bring the new year in, so I ended up home alone...I could have gone to the neighbours but I just couldn't get motivated so actually happily stayed home and did a movie marathon, something that is a first for me. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and had fun bringing in the New Year and are all ready for a crafty 2017.
I made this card for DD's boyfriend who has just turned 21 and I got to use a new die, one of my Christmas presents to make it. I had the masterboard laying around and thought it looked good with die cut out in black. So I framed it in black, stamped the 21 and wrote today! on it by hand (something I really don't like doing) and mounted it on another die to finish it off. He liked it and made a point of telling me he really liked the card so I am very pleased.
