Hi everyone,

Well it's been a while since my last post. Have been working on the kitchen, had a mini vacation and just enjoying the summer although the weather has not been very nice at all. As a matter of fact there is a lovely thunder shower going on right now. The tile guy is in the kitchen installing the backsplash (which is the final touch in my complete new kitchen) so hubby has gone to pick up some lunch.

In the meantime I have a card to share using some new Lawn Fawn products.

Watercolured the background piece in 2 different colours and added some Pearl shimmer. I then used an embossing folder to add a little texture. I think it looks like waves.
Die cut the Aloha 3 times and the palm tree top and layered the whole panel on to some patterned paper.
Added some finishing touches with Nuvo accents.

Hi everyone,

Today's card was created using a SSS stencil for the background and 2 different Altenew stamp and die sets.

I started by creating my background using the Diagonal stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp and 2 different distress inks.
I taped the stencil to my work surface and applied one colour first then turned the stencil once and created the other colour of stripes going in the opposite direction. Die cut the whole panel with a wonky rectangle die.

Stamped and die cut the leafs with different green inks. Stamped and die cut the flower and coloured with Copics. I then added some little white dots to the flower with a gel pen.

The sentiment was stamped and die cut. Added some green accents with Nuvo crystal drops to my card and Wink of Stella to the flower.

Well that's it for today.

Birthday wishes

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card for the current SSS challenge to add a Bit of Sparkle here.

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and blended the background using 2 distress inks overlapping the colours and then die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die. For my sentiment I used some double sided tape and added some copper glitter to that and rubbed it in with my fingers. I used a SSS die to cut out the sentiment and added it to my card. Added some Nuvo crystal drops and popped up the whole panel with some foam tape and added that to an orange piece of cardstock.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,

Floral thanks

Hi everyone,

I've been a little absent from my craft room lately as we have been working on our kitchen remodel which has been taking up a considerable amount of our time. I'm probably a little rusty in the card creating world.
And now that the weather is nice it'll be time to get out and get some planting done. Off to buy flowers this afternoon.

I did manage to squeeze in some time last night though to create this card for the current SSSflickrchallenge#71 where the theme is to use a 'Favorite Technique'. I chose ink blending using a stencil.

I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil to create my background using 3 of their ink colours.

Once I was happy with the blending I die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle scallop die. Die cut the flowers in black, the sentiment in both black and white cardstock and the black frame using the same stitched rectangle scallop die.

I then added some Nuvo crystal drops and popped up the whole striped panel using foam tape.

Bicycle ride

Hi everyone,

I have a card to share that I created using the Lawn Fawn Bicycle Built For You stamp and die set.
Such a sweet set!

I started by creating my background using the Hillside border die masking each section and blending the two colours.
Ran this through my die cut machine using a Stitched Rectangle Scallop frame die.
Stamped all the other elements to the card on tan cardstock and coloured using Prismacolor Premier pencils. The bicyle was embossed with white embossing powder.

Popped the background up with some foam tape and add all the other pieces using foam tape too.
Stamped the sentiment and mounted the whole card on a background of patterned paper.
Added glossy accents to the balloons.

Well that's it for my card and thanks for stopping by.
