Guest Designer for Less is More

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I am so excited to be Guest Designing over at the Less is More challenge blog today.  This is one of my favourite challenge blogs so I was honoured to be chosen as the October winner and invited to guest design for this weeks challenge.  The theme is birds/feathers so I have used the beautiful stamp from Papertrey Ink Feather Finery on my card.  I inked up the feather with Kaleidacolor - caribbean sea ink, gave it a light spritz with water and stamped onto some water color card stock.  I used the matching die to cut the feather out and mounted it onto my top folding card base.

CAS-ual Fridays Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello and happy Friday!  This is the last CAS-ual Fridays challenge for the year and today we are Dreaming of a white Christmas. I can only dream of a white Christmas considering I live down under in Australia.  I hope one day to visit my sister who lives in the UK at Christmas time, hopefully that day will come soon enough!  But in the meantime I will dream LOL.  My Winter Christmas stamps are limited but I managed to come up with this card using the CAS-ual Fridays Christmas Sparkle stamp set.  I have white heat embossed my sentiment and stars onto a piece of navy blue card stock and tied a piece of silver twine around the top before adhering onto a white card base.

Fushion Challenge - Blue Gift


Hello and happy Friday!  Today I am entering a new to me challenge over at the Fushion Card Challenge blog.

I love the inspiration photo and the sketch so I chose to create FUSHION and used both!  I love blue and silver together!  I wrapped my blue ribbon around my card stock and added some silver twine, then I stamped my sentiment onto a little tag and tied it onto the bows with another piece of silver twine.  I adhered my panel onto a top folding card base with foam squares and called it a day.



Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #188


No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  It's time for a new challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog and this week our theme is "Winter Blues".  It is the first day of Summer here in Australia and we have had a long spell of hot weather  so I am dreaming of a cold winters day.  I made a birthday card since I don't have the need for wintery Christmas cards down here.  I used my Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad and the smooshing technique to make my background then stamped the sentiment from the Whole Shebang stamp set.

Let it Shine #356 LIM



Hello and happy Monday!  Today's card is for the challenge over at Less is More and the theme is "Let it shine".  I have used one of my newer sets from Uniko called Christmas Sparkle and I thought it was perfect for this challenge.  For my first card, I stamped the bauble with Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink and then with Versamark and clear sparkle embossing powder to make it "shine".  It is hard to pick up all the sparkly beauty in the photo.  For my second card I used the same ink pad but instead of using the sparkly embossing powder, I used my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen.  It doesn't show up very well in the photo but it is pretty in real life!  Click here to take you to the Less is More challenge blog.




Thanks for looking and I will be back on Friday with another CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

Less is More #355



Hello and happy Sunday from sunny Melbourne!  My card today is for the challenge over at Less is More and it is CASEing Susan.  Happy birthday Susan!  I have chosen to colour this gorgeous "Reindeer Peeker" digi from Bugaboo Stamps. I used my Prisma pencils, fussy cut him out and adhered him to my card base with foam squares to add a bit of dimension.  I drew a frame around him with a Zig pure black marker, stamped my sentiment and drew some holly and berries in the top corner.




I made a second card using a bigger reindeer image,  die cut a rectangular stitched panel and adhered it to my card base with foam squares.  Click here to check out the Less is More challenge.


Thanks for looking and have a great week!
