CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #183

I love the challenges over at CAS-ual Fridays and who can pass up an opportunity to make a shaker card?

My ingredients for this card:

  • CAS-ual Fridays sentiment from the Frankly’isms set
  • Pretty Pink Posh die and sequins
  • Simon Says Stamp pig image from the Birthday Farm Animals set

This card came together really quickly as I have a whole container of already water coloured and fussy cut out critters that when the inspiration hit I’d be ready to roll!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

 

Addicted to CAS Challenge #120 Florals

Another day another challenge! Well not quote another day but you get what I mean – LOL

Today I created a card for the Addicted to CAS challenge #120 Florals. I am a CAS girl at heart and love a good floral card so this challenge was perfect for me.

ATCAS - code word florals

I used a stamp set called Mondo Magnolia by Ellen Hutson (borrowed from my friend Michelle) and coloured it with my Chameleon markers (V04 and PR4) which were a birthday gift from said friend. The sentiment is from Altenew called Label Love and my finishing touch is some purple twine from the Twinery.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Playing along with The Flower Challenge

I loved the current challenge over at The Flower Challenge which is a tic-tac-toe challenge. I love challenges that help me with the direction of my card, especially helpful when I might be lacking some mojo – LOL.

I chose the diagonal of embossing, watercolor and colour (blue) for my card.

I clear embossed the Dahlia Close up stamp from the Ton, then water coloured it with my Prima Confections Classics, which are the neatest little tins of water colour tints. I cut the image on an angle, layered it on some gold cardstock, then stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted called ‘Message Me’.

What do you think? I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking.

 

 

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I’ve been thinking about blogging for some time and I have decided to bite the bullet, so here it is!
Card making and paper crafting are my ways to chill and unwind from the stress of my day job  and this blog is somewhere to share my creations, a bit about my life and I’m hoping to enter some challenges along the way.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy my cards.

Here are 2 cards I made last weekend for a work colleague for Christmas. She asked for something sparkly and classy and I think I fulfilled her request. I’ve used 2 dies and a stamp from Stampin Up called Detailed Santa Thinlit, Merry Tags Framelits and Merriest Wishes. I had some super glittery silver and shiny gold card stock that I’d picked up recently from the Paperific Show in Melbourne.
