Welcome Baby - CAS on Sunday #65

22 August 2015

Welcome Baby

Welcome Baby

I made this card for my best friend's daughter who recently had the most beautiful baby girl.  I hope she likes it.

I watercoloured underneath the vellum piece I sewed on.  You can't see a lot of the watercolouring but I like the subtle look it gives.

I am going to put this in the CAS on Sunday challenge - Vellum.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Little Tangles Challenge #59 - Birthday

6 August 2015


Hi.  Our new challenge is a project relating to 'Birthday'.  I am always needing birthday cards so it was a great challenge for me.

I heat embossed the balloon images from the Just For You stamp set from Neat and Tangled, and watercoloured them using my distress ink pads.  After fussy cutting them I placed them around a MFT die cut, added some metallic thread and added the sentiment from the same set which I had also heat embossed and fussy cut.

I love the way the watercolour looks, I am waiting for a Kuretake Gansai Tambi set to arrive (yay!) but I must say I am pretty impressed with the look you can get from distress inks.

Well I hope you can join us.......... you can link your birthday project up here!

I am also going to join in the Seize the Birthday Challenge - Embossing.

Thanks so much for stopping by x

Little Tangles Challenge #58 - Die-Cutting

2 July 2015

Hello, your going to love the latest Little Tangles Challenge, it's Die-Cutting!

I used the Tiny Triangles die to cut out my panel which I then coloured with distress ink.  I added a splash of water at the end and I love how it turned out!  I added the die cut word and heart and that was about it finished.

If you love die-cutting as much as me then make sure you play along, you can link up here. Don't forget there is a Neat and Tangled stamp set to be won!


See you again soon!

Little Tangles Challenge #57 & The Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge

4 June 2015

Hi,  we are playing along with The Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge this month, how fun!  It is a great sketch too.  I decided to flip it around and haven't copied it completely but that's ok, I still used it as my inspiration.  I used one of my all time favourite stamps, Fresh Blooms from Neat and Tangled and added a sentiment from the Paper Cut Flowers Set.  I am not the best at water colouring but I love playing.  I do think I'm getting a bit better though.  I was also inspired by the colours that Debbie Hughes used in a card recently, I love her cards :)

Thinking of You LT

I hope you can join us this month, I can't wait to see what all the participants create :)  You can link up here & here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, it means so much to me.

Scrapbook Boutique - May Challenge

31 May 2015

Hi, just popping in quickly to post a card I made for the Scrapbook Boutique May Challenge.  I stuck very closely with colours from the challenge pic as you can see.  Not sure if I love my effort, might be a bit going on, but it was fun playing.

Happy Birthday SB
