Penny Black Poppy Edger die birthday card



Hello everyone,

Just a quick post to let you know that the new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More starts today.



We'd like to see your Clean and Simple designs, and here is my card which luckily was very quick to make, given the time of year and limited time to craft:-


I used the Penny Black Poppy Edger die and coloured it with Copics, adding the sentiment from My Favorite Things Spring Tulips stamp set.

Crafter's Companion Edge'able merry stamp and die Christmas card





Hello, and wherever you are visiting from, I hope you are safe from all the adverse weather situations we've been having. It's time for the August challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.




As always, we are an anything goes as long as it's Christmas challenge but we have a fun twist each month that you can choose if you want a more specific challenge. This month our twist is jingle bells, and to tickle your fancy, I came up with this card.



I used a Gemini word edger die from Crafter's Companion and I offset and stacked it to give a bit more structure to the card. The little bells are from My Favorite Things Santa's Elves stamp and die set, and the paper is from my stash.

MFT Turntable dies birthday card





Hello and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too. This time you can throw caution to the wind because no twist is necessary to play along this month.


Simply Create Too Challenge Blog


My youngest son is a great collector of vinyl records and has been known to do a spot of DJ-ing from time to time, so when I saw this die set from My Favorite Things, I had to have it. This is the birthday card I made for him:-




I found some retro-looking double-sided card in my stash and made the card base with it. The whole thing folds flat, and the sentiment on the top is from the MFT Chalkboard Greeting stamp set which I embossed in white and cut out with an oval die.



I decided to make it a double-deck - DJ style, and cut the records from some glossy black card. I cut the arms from mirror card and used brads to anchor them so you can actually move the arms across the records (little things please me, sigh... )!



 I loved playing around with this card and it really took me back to my first record player. It was a second hand Dansette with a pink top and I loved it with all my heart. Sadly, the arm wouldn't actually touch the record and just hovered above it, so I had to tape a coin to the arm to weigh it down so it would make contact. Sometimes the tape would fail and send the coin jumping across the record leaving a scratch, but I thought it just added character to the sound! I was so easily pleased back then lol!

Anyway, if you pop over to the SCT Blog, you will find lots of inspiration from the team, and you can link up your entry over there too. I do hope you will join us this month.

WPlus9 Unforgettable new baby card





Hello and welcome to another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This time we want you to make your mark with any colouring medium you choose.




I was in need of a new baby card for a friend of my daughter who just had her second child, so I came up with this card




I used the WPlus9 Unforgettable stamp and die set and coloured the balloons and elephant with Copic markers.



I used oxide inks to make the sky background.

I hope you will pop over to the blog to see inspiration from my teammates, and if you decide to join us, you can link up your entry over there too.

Thank you card using MFT Rainbow of Happiness stamps



Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. I hope your summer is going well and that you are enjoying some sunshine. 

This time we have a photo inspiration montage


and I used the top left-hand corner picture as my inspiration to produce this card that would be ideal for a man.


I began by using oxide inks to produce the background and once it was dry, I used a Papertrey Ink embossing plate to give the impression of boards.

The anchor die was a give away with a magazine and I cut it four times from red card, stacked them together and then added glossy accents to it.


The frame is from My Favorite Things and the little red dots at each corner were the fall away from the anchor die.

How would you interpret the photo? If you would like more inspiration, you will find lots of interest from the DT over on the ATSM blog.

Stamps by Chloe and Papertrey Ink Christmas card




Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge




Our optional twist this month is sparkle if you'd like to play along, and I came up with this card



I used a border stamp from Chloe Stamps called Starry Sparkle and stamped it on opposite sides of a stitched square rectangle in blue ink. I added beads of glue to the stars and sprinkled glitter on them before they dried.


The central panel is cut with a My Favorite Things Blueprint die and I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Papertrey Ink. A few little hearts finished it off.

As always, our lovely DT has some great inspiration for you over on the blog.
