Reverse Confetti August Sketch

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

I am trying to get a few more masculine cards in my pile as I often fall short of them. I adore the seaside stamps and dies that were released prior to August and thought I would use them for the sketch this month..........Here is this months sketch

I love this set and know that I will be making more cards with it, especially since KaiserCraft just recently released some amazing nautical goodies which include the anchor embossing folder and paper used on this card

Viva la Verve August Sketch 2

Loving the second sketch for this month and I think it is another that I will come back to for future cards. I cannot wait for the new release to be available Friday, adore the new floral set and think it will be at the very top of my list :)
Here is the second sketch

Here is my card based on the above sketch, I love this set Poppy Birthday and often head to it especially for birthday cards. Thanks for stopping by today, may you be blessed with time to craft and good coffee :)

Verve August Diva Inspiration Challenge

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Gorgeous colours and lots of wonderful inspiration from the Diva's make playing this challenge fun. I went through my KaiserCraft paper stash and found some papers that line up with the Challenge colours. Having a Kaiser Craft outlet so close is not a good thing and I think even the best of paper hoarders would be shocked by the stash I have tucked away :). 
Thank for dropping by today and as always I wish your day full of crafting and good coffee

Essentials by Ellen August Mix it Up.......Winnie and Walter

Monday, August 15, 2016

I recently purchased the Winnie and Walter Kindness set with the matching dies and today I have used that set along with a beautiful die cut sentiment from Ellen Hutson 'Many Thanks'. I decided to get my Prisma Colour Pencils out as I have not used them in such a long time and this is the resulting card for the August Mix up. Thanks for dropping by today :)

Viva La Verve August Challenge

Saturday, August 13, 2016

I finally found some time to sit down and make a card :), that always makes me happy and I decided to base my card on this months Viva la Verve Sketch.
I did swap out the circle for an oval so that more of the gorgeous patterned paper behind was left showing. Thanks for visiting my blog today, hoping your day is full of crafting goodness and coffee

Verve July Inspiration Challenge

Sunday, July 31, 2016

Gorgeous inspiration for this months Challenge and I have been wanting to play along for a few weeks now and happy that I managed to play before the Challenge closed.
I got my sewing machine out for this one and was fun as I have not done any sewing on a card in quite a while. I love the beautiful fonts that Verve use and the lovely Verses <3 It is always fun to create with these beautiful stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by today, may your day be full of craft and good coffee :)

Color Throwdown 403

Saturday, July 30, 2016

Every week I so look forward to seeing the beautiful cards that the amazing team make and think I must play along. Well this week I finally got around to playing along and I am not sure why but I found the colours to be quite a challenge. It seems I just wanted to go bright orange rather than a more peach tone. Anyway that is what I love about a challenge and I am pleased with the finished card. Thanks for stopping by I hope your day is full of blessings and time to craft.
