Wednesday Words

Today I'm sharing a card I created to enter the challenge at Perfectly CAS.

One corner is a favourite card design of mine and here's what I came up with:

I masked off a corner on my card front and inked it up with three distress oxide colours. Whilst it was still masked off I placed the Dancing Dandelions stencil from T4TD over and inked through it with one of the oxides I used for the background - love th subtle look this tone on tone inking gives.

The cute little bunny with his pot of honey, the bees and the sentiment are all from T4TD All Occasion Critters.
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black; Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress oxide, tumbled glass, cracked pistachio, squeezed lemonade
Pens: Copic, C1, C3, B00, R20, Y38, YR68; Sakura black & white glaze

I'm so pleased that you stopped by my blog today, huge thanks.

Stay safe and keep crafting!

Monday Moment

Is the sun shining where you are? If not may be this card will bring a bit of brightness to you.

It's going into the challenge at Addicted to CAS.

As well as being super bright it's also a really quick make. I simply die cut the sun ray using the T4TD cover plate die, chopped it in half to fit the corner and backed it with a scrap of yellow card. 

The sentiment is from an old Pink & Main stamp set called Sunny Hello.

Stamps: Pink & Main, Sunny Hello
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne

Remember if you should wish to buy this die from T4TD you can use code T4TJANE10 to get 10% off.

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate you taking the time.

AAA Cards Challenge #193 Sketch + optional twist Critters

Time for the next challenge at AAA Cards.

Loving this sketch! 

I created a little pond scene across the bottom of my card using T4TD Lucky Ducks stamp set.

I coloured up the duck to look like a mallard as I think they are so pretty.

Stamps: T4TD, Lucky Ducks + matching dies - 10% off with code T4TJANE10
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black, danube blue, bahama blue, bamboo leaves, pear tart

Today I'm sharing a card I made that was inspired by the photo at Time Out Challenges.

Here's my card:

I used a scrap of stripy paper that was left over from a scrapbook page and still out on my desk - how opportune was that?

I then added in some of the Funky Fossil Ferns that I die cut from their gorgeous Mixed Media Kaleidoscope paper. They reminded me of the potted plants in the photo.

The sentiment is from Small Print and I matted the whole thing onto a dark blue card base to echo the floor from the photo.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Small Print
Ink: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Dies: Funky Fossil, Fern
Paper: Funky Fossil, Mixed Media Kaleidoscope; scrap from my stash

Thanks so much for dropping by today, it's been great to have your company.

Friday Focus

Feels like it's been ages and ages since I've shared a scrapbook page. And probably even longer since I've entered a scrapbook challenge. 

Time to put that right!


So White with 1 here I come.

And how amazing it has been to actually see and touch and watch my grandchildren again!

I pretty much followed the sketch exactly, just had to flip it because of the direction of the photo and substituted stars for the circles.

Papers: AC, kraft card + scraps from my stash
Dies: MFT Die-namics, Cute Cameras, Lucky Stars & Wow; Lawn Fawn, hearts

Thanks so much for stopping by today. It's been fun to have you visit.

Time For Tea Designs Challenge Reminder

Today I got to play with my favourite colours and T4TD Fairy Garden stamps to create a little scene. This is my final reminder post for the June challenge.

I started by creating a magical fairyland background using the Landscape Edges dies and I framed it with the Smile Inverted Scallop Frame die.

Then came my favourite bit - the fairies. They are just too cute!


And of course they needed their little toadstool house and a pile of presents to deliver. Oh and a sparkle too!

Stamps: T4TD, Fairy Garden + matching dies
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, BG10, BG11, BG32, R2O, R27, E00, E51, V01, V12, V15, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV04; Sakura glaze black & white; Wink of Stella, clear

I've a Christmas card to share today that's going into the CAS Christmas challenge.

It used one of Funky Fossil's Silly Snowmen and their new A7 background stamps Chevrons.

I started by inking up the chevrons across the bottom right corner using a Kaleidacolor ink pad.  I then added some falling snow and the greeting.

The snowman was stamped onto another piece of card and coloured to match the chevrons. I then popped him up on pads for dimension.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Silly Snowmen, Chevrons
Inks: Kaleidscolor, Caribbean Sea; Memento, tuxedo black
Pens: Copic, BG0000, BG10, BG49, C0, YR07, YG06, YG09
