Sue Wilson, Happy Little Stampers and Crafter's Companion Christmas card

Hello everyone,

I'm afraid it's short and sweet today but I wanted to let you know that it's Holiday week over at ATSM

and I came up with this card:-

For the background, I used Crafter's Companion snowflake paper which I tinted with blue ink. The Sue Wilson snowflake border was cut with blue glitter card and the central panel, again from Sue Wilson was cut from blue mirror card. The sentiment is from the Happy Little Stampers Let it Snow stamp set.

Papertrey Ink With All My Heart 1st Anniversary card

Hello everyone, I'm guest designing over at The Joy of SetsChallenge this month, which is a tic tac toe challenge, and Fiona created this grid for us to choose from

I opted for the top row, love, heart and numbers to come up with this card

I used the Papertrey Ink With All My Heart stamp and Limitless Layers Heart die set to create the heart.

The 1st bit comes from a very old Hero Arts stamp set called Number 1 which I love, but of course, the number can be changed or even left out to make it suitable for any old anniversary. The sentiment is from a mix of Happy Little Stampers sets and I added glossy accents to a little red heart to finish it off.

Thanks, Fiona, for inviting me to join in this month - I really enjoyed it! You can join in the challenge too if you visit the Joy of Sets tic tac toe challenge blog.

MFT Santa's Elves and Bright Rosa Christmas card

Hello everyone, and welcome to another Christmas Challenge at Happy Little Stampers. How did we get to September so fast!!! Although you can make any Christmas project for our challenge, we do have a fun twist to get your creative juices flowing and this time our theme is 'elf'.

I came up with this card

I used the new elongated hexagon dies from Bright Rosa to create the card shape and just trimmed off the ends to give this shape. The die set includes the inset snowflake die and I really like how it looks with blue paper behind it.

The other elements are from the My Favorite Things Santas Elves set and I coloured the elf with Copic markers.

You will find lots of Christmas inspiration over on the blog and I hope my Teamies and I can tempt you to get on with some Christmas makes now that the year is whooshing by so fast.

Sue Wilson Stained Glass - Poinsettia Christmas card

Hello and welcome to another challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges 

Our challenges this time are

S for Sparkle


T for Texture

I went for S for Sparkle but the glitter also gives texture so I think this one covers both.

I started by cutting a stitched rectangle from white card before cutting the die from Sue Wilson's Festive Collection Stained Glass - Poinsettia from the centre. I then cut the die again from red card before colouring the leaves and flower centres with Copic markers. I used adhesive film behind the die cut and paper pieced the pieces back in before coating the negative space with blue glitter.

I embossed the red panel with the Creative Expression Falling Snow e/f and die cut a frame using the Sue Wilson Stitched rectangle dies. The sentiment is a Papertrey Ink one and I embossed it with white embossing powder.

If you go to the ABC Christmas Challenges blog you will find lots to inspire you from my talented teammates, and you have until 30th September to link up your entries. I hope to see you in the gallery.

Woodware Into the Woods sympathy card

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. I hope you had a good Bank Holiday weekend if you are in the UK. They reckon it was a record for sunshine and heat, and it certainly felt like it! It was good to catch up with friends and family and I always try to make the most of it because it's the last BH until Christmas. A scary thought!

Anyway, our challenge this time is the ever-popular 'anything goes', so you can pull out anything you fancy and go to town. Sadly, I had need of a sympathy card, so I came up with this one

I blended distress oxide inks and then stamped the Woodware Into the Woods silhouette stamp on top of it. I cut the panel with one of the MFT Blueprints 33 dies.

The stacked die-cut sentiment is from Simpon Says Stamp, and the stamped one is from Clearly Besotted. I finished off by adding splatters in the same colours. I'm sorry the lighting on the photo isn't very good today!

The DT has lots to inspire you over on the blog and I hope you will decide to join us this time.

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.
