I inked up a stamp set from Altenew called ‘Main squeeze’ using inks from Catherine Pooler Designs. I think the yellows give the card a lovely sunshiny feel and this will go to a friend who always has a sunny outlook on life for her birthday!
I created a Wedding card for a wedding I went to on the 1st of July. For my card I used a new set from Stampin Up called ‘Butterfly wishes’ which I inked up in Catherine Pooler inks – midnight and bellini. This is a gorgeous stamp set with gives great shade to the stamps. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions ‘Simply Strips’.
I just love how this card came out and hope my friend does too.

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Sweet Stampin’ Christmas challenge blog with an optional twist to create a Christmas in the Sun project.
This is a usual type of Christmas here in Australia. I used and modified a set from MFT called ‘ Jingle all the way’ and coloured Santa in with my Stampin Blends; I used a sentiment from Stampin Up ‘So Santa’ and sponged the beach background with my Distress Oxide Inks and added a frame.
Come join in our fun and add to your Christmas card stash. Visit the challenge blog to check out the inspiration the other CaSSettes have made. Link up your card by 3am 14th August (Melbourne time) or 6pm 13th August (UK time).
I was on a roll with my AIs and tried the lift technique again but with a stencil rather than a stamp this time. The lift pad wasn’t working so well, so I used the lift re-inker and dabbed drops onto the panel in the stencil gaps and then lifted the ink off. I added a bit of gold thread for that party glitz feel. Thanks for the layout inspiration Kreative Kristie.
Well that’s it for today – thanks for looking and have a great day.
For my card I used a retired die set from Stampin up to create the rainbow, clouds, lightening and sun. The sentiment is from another SU set called ‘Sprinkles of Life’. With the negative space from die cutting the clouds I sponged my background with some Pool Party ink.
I hope this card cheers you up as much as it has me. Thanks for looking and enjoy your day.
I made this card for my Mother-in-laws birthday. I created an alcohol ink background and then placed a die cut panel on top with an embossed sentiment and a few matt layers.
I just love how this project came out.

Well hello there – it’s the start of school holidays here and I’ve got a bit of time to myself while Miss K is catching up on her sleep. I’m playing along with 8 challenges today – yep – you read right – but there are only 5 cards!
I had an alcohol ink background panel in my stash, so i decided to use it for this card with a floral die that covers the whole card. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions ‘Simple Strips Background’.
A used a stamp set from Uniko called ‘Happy Succulents’ which I water coloured and fussy cut out. I added another sentiment from Taylored Expressions ‘Simple Strips Background’ which I cut apart and added some diagonal stripe DSP onto a coral card base.
I did a bit of masking on this card to create the circle at the top and then stamped 3 sizes of dots from the MFT ‘Bokeh builder’ stamp set in the SU inks of So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I then rounded 2 corners for the finishing touch.
I recently cup up all my SU DSP so that I would start to use it and not hoard it, so these 2 challenges came at the perfect time! I used the matching DSP and stamp set from SU called ‘Geared up garage’. I did a little bit of surgery on my car image (after it was stamped) to turn it into a convertible. I used 3 DSP layers and created my sentiment on my PC. I added a bit of crystal effects to the windscreen to make it look like glass.
Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
