Reverse Confetti SFYTT

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Finally I have added the beautiful Butterfly Dreams stamps to my RC collection and this morning decided they needed to see ink :) . I also broke open a beautiful patterned paper pad that has been admired for too long and needs to grace some card stock.

Well not much more to say as worked a nightshift before coming home and making this card, but what better way to wind down than play with stampin goodies!

Day Two Altnew Color Your Day Class

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

So happy to have registered for this class as I have opened up stamps that have possibly intimidated me a little. There are so many beautiful cards out there using the Altenew stamps that I wondered if I could do them any justice. Yesteday I watched the Day 2 video and it was about using the color wheel and very helpful. I so need to pop out in the next few days and purchase a wheel. I did play it safe really using red and green but very happy with the combo as red flowers are among the most striking in my opinion. I inked up Lacy Scrolls for the very first time and now I wonder why I had not played with them earlier :) it is such a beautiful set.
Thanks for dropping in and hopefully I will sneak in a card for day three as I have the bug and cannot wait to roll my sleeves up and ink a little.

Hopefully today I will find the cords for my lightbox and my backgrounds will be a little less grey :)

Altenew Color Your Day Classes

Sunday, July 17, 2016

I am so delighted to see Therese Clavird teaching over at Altenew as I love her cards and the first lesson has been awesome. I loved the inspiration and it enabled me to create this card. I used a floral stamp from the botanical gardens set and used my Zig watercolor markers. This is the first time I have seriously used them and was really pleased that they were not difficult to use at all LOL.
So without further ado here is the card I created from day one.

Thanks for dropping by, it seems like forever sine I posted a card but thee is so much happening in my life and I have been working like a Trojan for the last six weeks. Cant wait to play with the inspiration from Day two :)

Reverse Confetti June Sketch

Thursday, June 9, 2016

I thought I would go back to one of the very first stamp sets that I purchased from Reverse Confetti for this sketch :) I love to revisit older stamp sets and challenge myself with them. This stamp set is called Forever Fall and it is one I often come back to especially to embellish cards with. Thanks for dropping by today.

Viva la Verve June Sketch

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

So hard to believe we are now into the middle of the year! I recently won a beautiful stamp set and matching dies for commenting during the latest release. These arrived yesterday and I decided to use them for this first challenge of the month. This set is called Beautiful Things  and at the moment it is discounted (awesome). I am a big fan of the beautiful sentiments and font styles used by Verve.

Here is the sketch for this fortnight

This is my take on the Sketch, the papers I used here are Kaisercraft papers from a pack called Secret Garden. This was my first use of the pad and I went to my local store today to purchase another one as there are so many papers in the set that I love. Thanks for stopping bye, I so appreciate your visit to my blog.

The Challenge #74

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Masculine cards are always a real challenge for me and when I saw this weeks photo at  The Challenge I knew I would enjoy the challenge of coming up with a card for the guys :)
I really don't have too many masculine type images but have one set from stampin up called Guy Greetings so out it came.

 That red really caught my eye as it is one of my very favourite colours and I think a pair of red shoes is a must have in everyone's wardrobe. So it was one feature I wanted to incorporate into my card.Thanks for dropping in, I love and appreciate your visits to my little blog.

Viva la Verve Sketch 2

What a gorgeous layout for week two and I love to add doily's to my cards. 

For this card I used a beautiful sentiment from the Stamp Set Blue Skies one of my very favourite sets from Verve :)
