Viva La Verve September Challenge

Sunday, September 17, 2017

It feels like forever sine I have been into my little crafting area and just relaxed and made a card. Finally I managed to do just that and I was so keen to join in with the Verve Viva La Verve Challenge which I am delighted to see back in action. Here is the sketch for this month.........

I loved the opportunity I saw here to indulge in some of my much treasured and hoarded patterned papers :). These papers are from Kaiser Craft and while I lived in Australia it was so fun to drive to there outlet not too far from me and splurge on a few goodies. I do miss being able to do that!

Thanks for dropping in :)

Sketch Saturday Card

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Sketch Saturday are being sponsored by AMB illustrations and I just could not resist the Floral Frames and Tags Clip Art. The oval frame was perfect for this challenge, this set is one I will use again and again so very happy with my purchase.
Here is this weeks Sketch and I had lots of fun making a card for this challenge. Also as a bonus I have discovered AMB illustrations and I will be back there to check out some of the beautiful background papers for sure.

And here is my card based on the Sketch. Thanks so much for dropping by and I will be around some of the other bloggers sites to check out the lovely cards that have been posted for this sketch.

Reverse Confetti SFYTT

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

I finally got a beautiful paper pad and some inks from Reverse Confetti and went straight to work on a card with my new goodies. Here is the sketch for this month.

I used one of my favourite stamps sets Love Blooms for the flowers and the sentiment comes from the Walk by Faith set. I hope you like my card for the challenge, I enjoyed putting it together and using my new Paper pad from Reverse Confetti. I have to say I wanted to just hoard it but the challenge saw me using a few sheets.

Color Throwdown Challenge

Friday, June 9, 2017

Awesome colours this week and I had the brand new Dotty turnabout from Concord and 9th sitting on my desk so had to play along. Check out the Challenge board created by Lisa

Sadly for some reason I cannot take a photo that shows my yellow as it really is here it is looking orange but it is definitely yellow, a beautiful Pineapple Yellow from MFT <3

I used Coral Crush cardstock and ink along with Pineaple and Green Room Inks from MFT. The stamp is the new turnaround dotty stamp from Concord and 9th and finished off with a die cut Happy Birthday from Simon Says. Love mixing up my goodies! 

Curtain Call Succulent Challenge

Monday, June 5, 2017

I was so excited to see the beautiful inspiration photo for this month and it inspired me to reach for a beautiful succulent set that I purchased from Papertrey Ink a while ago. Oh this pic is so inspiring I think I could make so many cards with this as inspiration and love the added pinks in there too!. I went all glittery with this card and used one of my favourite stencils from MFT for the background with a beautiful silver glitter paste. Thanks so much for stopping by today, it was lovely to get time to craft as life has been super busy with work and home of late. I think I may print this picture and tuck it into my inspiration folder.

Make it Monday Background Stamping with Sentiments

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Oh how I loved Melissa's beautiful creations this week! I was fortunate to have a very free Sunday afternoon so I was able to create a card for this week. Sadly I missed last week with all the business of life. I recently purchased the Paper Doll Basics and two add on packs......the birthday stamps and some Christmas ones. I love all the inspiration out there for these two cute characters and decided to make a birthday card today using Birthday basics 2 for my background. I decided to emboss my sentiment and then sponged over it with Lovely Lady (Pink) and Orange Zest. Then I coloured my Paper doll and balloons and added another sentiment from the Skinny's set. That is it all done and now I am going to send it off to a friend who is always sending out birthday cards :).
 Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there today............One of the hardest jobs I think but also the most rewarding as well.

Thanks for dropping by today, looking forward to seeing what the next challenge is going to be. Also drooling over the new release and I especially love the new die frames that an be swapped out, Cant wait to see examples of this months tomorrow.

Was lots of fun playing with this sketch and one that really lends itself to some patterned paper I think

I needed to make a few Baby cards so this was the perfect time to use my stamp set "Cute as a Button"
