I included some stamping, stencilling and die-cuts in my card...


I smooshed some Distress Oxides and Cosmic Shimmer Powder to make a background. I then added some subtle stencilling and splatter for interest. When dry, I die-cut the panel and added some sweet fish die-cuts with seqin bubbles. To finish I added the sentiment.

Embossed Orchid

 Hi there! I've been so busy making cards for my new Design Teams, that I haven't had time to play in many challenges, but I couldn't resist joining in at The Flower Challenge.


I stamped the flowers with Zig Markers and clear embossed, before die-cutting. The background was embossed with a die.

Stamps:- Altenew Orchid, Altenew Thinking of You
Dies: Altenew Orchid, Altenew Striped Leaf Cover-plate

CAS Colours & Sketches #403

  Hi there! It's time for the second challenge of the year for CAS Colours & Sketches. This week is a colour challenge.  Jeanne is our host and has created a pretty colour combo for us.

I thought Spring when I saw these colours, so I decided to created a big colourful bloom!

I stamped and white heat-embossed the Poppy on plain white card and again on watercolour for the flower head.  The image was coloured with Zig Markers and an Aquabrush.  The sentemint and butterfly were stamped with Zig Markers.
Stamps: Poppy (Penny Black); Butterfly (Darkroom Door)

Snowman Christmas Sketch

 Hi there. I had some time today to make a card for the current 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge.

I thought it was time to use some patterned paper and I love the grey papers as they are fairly neutral.
I smooshed some Distress Oxides on the oval panel, die-cut a second oval die-cut for the snow.  The snowman die-cut was shaded and coloured with DO inks and Zig Markers.
Die: Hello Bluebird Winter Woods Overlay Die; Uniquely Creative Stitched Hillsides; Papertrey Ink (oval)
Stamp: SSS sentiment
Paper: DCWV
