Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea and MFT Blueprints 33 birthday card




Hello everyone, and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More, where we have our Make Your Mark challenge. As a reminder:-
your entry MUST contain the use of anything that can make a mark - Stampin' Write, Copics, Promarkers, Painting, Chalks, Watercolours, Sponges, Stencils, Masks etc etc




I came up with this card 


A set that has long been on my wishlist is the Paper Smooches Vegtastic stamp set but I have never seen it for sale in the UK, so I was thrilled when I saw this Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea stamp set at Dies to Die For. Those cute peas make me sooo hap-pea!


I stamped the My Favorite Things All Lined Up Background stamp on a die cut stitched rectangle and then cut the MFT Blueprints 33 shape to lay over it after inking up the edges and stamping the birthday sentiment. The peas and pods were stamped, die cut and coloured with Copics before being arranged on the card. Finally, the hap-pea sentiment was die cut twice and stacked to give it a bit more structure.

I hope you will pop over to the ATSM blog to see some more inspiration from our lovely design team, and you can link your entry up over there too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Papertrey Ink and Inkylicious Galaxy graduation/ celebration card




Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. This time we have a wonderful set of photos to inspire you and I can't wait to see what you come up with.






I came up with this galaxy card which uses a favourite ink blending technique


I created the galaxy background using a variety of colours of distress oxide inks and spattered some water over it. Once it was dry, I used a circle stencil and sponged white pigment ink through to create the moon. I had to do this a few times to cover up the dark background but leave some colour showing so it didn't look too stark.


Once the moon was dry, I stamped an Inkylicious moon stamp over the top with blue ink. A white embossed Papertrey Ink sentiment and some paint spatters finished it off. I thought this would be a good masculine or unisex card and I can personalise the occasion by adding a congratulations/graduation/new job greeting on the inside.

I hope you will drop by the ATSM blog to see some great inspiration from my team buddies and you can link up your entry to the gallery over there.

Papertrey Ink Scene It: Bethlehem Christmas card





Hello everyone and I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend if you are based in the UK. We are staying close to home and have friends visiting because we hate all the time spent in traffic jams whenever we go anywhere on BH weekends. Anyway, welcome to the May Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge and this time, our fun twist is circles.




I came up with this Christmas card 


I used an MFT Stencil to create the ray background and the Papertrey Ink Scene it: Bethlehem to create the circular centre. I cut all the pieces in white and coloured them with ink.


Our talented DT has some great inspiration over on the blog and they would love you to visit. You can link up your entry there too if you decide to join us.

Papertrey Ink Bells and Boughs Christmas Card




Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenges.
 

We had some fabulous entries last month and if you would like to see if you are a winner of one of the fabulous prizes from Lynda, head over to blog and scroll down.


This time our themes are 

J for Jingle
and
K for Kids


Our host this time is the wonderful Dorte and she has a lovely prize for the winner.

I went with J for jingle and came up with this card



I used the Papertrey Ink Bells and Boughs stamp and die set, and a leaf die from My Favorite Things. I coloured the bells using Copic markers to give the bells a dimensional feel and then shaped them to add to this effect. I filled each bell with silicone gel so it would set and keep the bells in shape through the post.


The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I stacked it a couple of times. To finish off, I framed the card with a scalloped frame from a My Favorite Things set.

I do hope you will join in with us this time, and head over to the blog to see some great inspiration from my talented teammates.

Thanks for stopping by.

Nellie Snellen Poinsettia Corner and SSS Merry Christmas card




Hello everyone,

Well, that last fortnight whizzed by and the time has come for another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. I hope you had a wonderful Easter break and the spring weather and colours are bringing you some joy. It seems strange to be thinking of Christmas at this time of year, but my resolution to keep on top of making my Christmas cards throughout the year is coming along nicely, (unlike the one for losing weight lol!), and taking part in this challenge is one of the reasons for that.


I'm slowly getting better with layered stamp sets and I used my NBUS Nellie Snellen Poinsettia Corner stamps to make this card using traditional Christmas colours.



I used my misti to stamp up the layers on a stitched rectangle of card and used a glaze pen on the berries to add some shine.


The die cut sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and I cut 3 layers and stacked them. All that was left, was to use some mats and add them to the base card.

I hope you will stop by the ATSM blog to see my talented teamies inspiration, and join in with us this time.

Lawn Fawn Plus One and Papertrey Ink Stitched Sentiments new baby card



Hello everyone and welcome to our ever popular anything goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.


Lots of my daughter's friends have been having babies lately so my stash of baby cards has been raided by her and needs replenishing.


I used the Lawn Fawn Plus one stamp set for the stork (fussy cut), and the leaf spray is from a Papertrey Ink set called Stitched Sentiments. I went over the leaves with a glue pen and added some very fine glitter which sparkles nicely irl, but hasn't been picked up very well by the camera.



A stitched frame and a scattering of some tiny hearts finished it off.

As always, you can find some great inspiration from my talented teammates over on the ATSM blog, and I look forward to seeing your entry in the gallery.

Altenew Build a Flower: Peruvian Lily get well card


Hello everyone and welcome to the next challenge over at Simply Create Too, and this time we don't have a twist for you so you can go bananas with anything you like!



No photo description available.


I came up with this CAS design card


 


I was lucky enough to get the Altenew Build a Flower: Peruvian Lily stamp and ink set when a friend of mine visited the US. I know this flower as alstroemeria and we have it growing in our garden. It's a great flower for picking because it lasts for ages in a vase and the colours are just beautiful. The best bit is that the more you pick them, the more you seem to get!




I used the accompanying inks and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

As usual, the Design Team have some great inspiration over on the blog, and if you decide to play along with us this time, you can link up your entry there.
