WWC207 – Helen’s Feminine Anything Goes Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Helen is our lovely hostess this week with a Feminine Anything Goes Challenge.

My card this week is using a new set by Stampin Up called ‘Wonderful Romance’ which I stamped the leaves and heat embossed in white on a Calypso Coral card panel. I then stamped the sentiment on some Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the oval die that matches the stamp set, added a bit of twine and mounted it all onto a Whisper Whie card base.

Come join in the fun and make a feminine card. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created then take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Tuesday, 12th February at 10:00 Melbourne Time or Tuesday 5pm Mountain Time to link up your project.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Get Creative Challenge #77 – anything goes optional twist lots of red.

Well hello and welcome to today’s post. I’ve joined the design team over at Get Creative Challenges and they have a new challenge for this month – Anything Goes with an optional twist to use lots of Red!

Our sponsors for this challenge are: Charlie’s Stamps, Scribbles Designs and Sheepski Designs.

I have used a digital stamp from Scribbles Designs called ‘Santa’ which I printed and then coloured with my Stampin Blends and added some puffy paint for the fur parts of his hat, jacket and pants. I then used the sun ray stencil from MFT in Catherine Pooler Desings Limoncello ink and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp called ‘Festive Trees’.

He’s such a jolly fellow and colouring him made me feel happy.

Check out the Get Creative Challenge blog for details on the sponsor prizes and links to the other fabulous projects from the DT and come join in our fun and share you anything goes card with an optional twist to use lots of red by 3pm Friday 1st March (Melbourne time) or 11pm Thursday 28th February (US Eastern Standard time)

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Card for my Valentine

With Valentines Day fast approaching, I thought I should get cracking on a card for my hubby who has been a pillar of support this past month with my mum becoming terminal and then passing and I want to let him know how much I love him.

I’ve been inspired by a number of challenges when making my card:

I used a stencil from Tim Holtz called ‘Scribbles’ which I roughly sponged Distress Oxides in Candied Apple and Picked Raspberry and then lightly spritzed them with water to get a bit of mixing happening. I cut the panel into a diagonal, added a little bit of black and white paper to make the panel pop and stamped my sentiment from the Power Poppy called ‘Big Scripts’ in the bottom corner.

I love how this colour combo worked out. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
