Time to Celebrate

Time to Celebrate

When I first saw these stamps I knew exactly what was to be the first Christmas Card I was going to make with them.

The MFT Christmas Cardinals were such cute stamps. I coloured using Copic Markers (must practice more) then layered on to red cardstock and stamp the sentiment from the Christmas Cardinals stamp set.

I am entering the card in the My Favourite Things 2020 Superstar Card Design: Clean and Simple Genius category.

dotty about you


Today I am happy to share with you a card made for my Sister-in-Law’s birthday.

Using the Dalmatian stamp from Stampingbella, I stamped the Dalmatian on white card stock, coloured spots using Promarker Cool Grey5 and the scarf with Maroon colour. The Dalmation was fussy cut and placed on the grass.

I used a dotty stamp on white card stock and cut the frame to place on the card, which was layered on to black card stock. To complete the card I stamped the sentiments using black ink.

I will be entering the card into the following challenges

A Little Bit of Flower

Today I would like to share a card made just for fun, which I thought could fit in to some of the card challenges out there.

This one was made using Gina K Designs Petals and Wings and layering on to the Fabulous Frame set. This was stamped, then cut out to fit on to the card. The insert was die cut and stamped with the sentiment Wishing you Sunshine and Love from the Petals and Wings stamp set.

To give an antique look, the base of the card was coloured using Distress Ink Vintage Photo, while the flowers were stamped in subtle colours to compliment the brown, then die cut and assembled on to the frame.

I would like to enter it in the Gina K Design June Monthly Mix Challenge – Vintage Floral

So Long and Farewell Retirement

So Long and Farewell Retirement

I have a colleague who I have worked with over a long period of time. When she announced a few months ago that she was going to retire, but undertake small consultancy jobs, I thought this was a great opportunity to make a lucky clover, but use stamps I have already – Stampin’ Up Heart Happiness. They are so versatile. I stamped the clover in green, cut out with the punch and layered on to a card, coloured the frame and background with the inkpad as I don’t have co-ordinating paper. The sentiment was a combination of two from Lili of the Valley.
