Christmas Wishes

Last card for the day for Merry Monday #257 challenge - Add a decorated card to your card using texture, bling and die cuts.... Also for the Christmas Card Throwdown colour challenge - Pink, Red and Green. 
For texture I embossed the back panel and smooched it with white ink to highlight the raised areas. I die cut my stitched tag and overstamped it with script stamp. Then Stamped my stocking twice.. on green card for the stocking and on white card for the top - used Brushos to colour my images and fussy cut. To finish I added some threads for the tie, a few pink gems and a stamped sentiment.  Thanks for taking a peek

Happy Birthday

I usually stamp my images in black but thought I might try using a colour of Distress Ink with my Gerbera stamp... I used Festive Berries... and then used it to water colour the image. I overstamped the image panel is a script stamp and layered the panel with green and dark pink.  I teamed this with a pretty floral designer paper for the background and to finish added a stamped sentiment.  I used the layout at Try Stamping on Tuesday #340 but turned it upside down. And was inspired by the  pretty Floral Teacup photo at Fusion challenge.  Thanks for taking a peek


Best Wishes to Someone Special

For this card I used the layout at Freshly Made Sketches #306 and the colour palette from Power Poppy - Hues to Use... Pink, Beige, Green.  I stamped and embossed my image with Pearl Gold - it didn't look too crash hot so I over stamped it with brown Distress Ink after I water coloured it with Brushos. Then I overstamped with a script stamp in Antique Linen Distress Ink. I framed the panel with beige card and used pale green and pink strips for the layout and attached these over a base panel of Designer Paper.  To finish I inked the edge of my stamped sentiment.  Thanks for taking a peek.


A Smile happens in a Flash....

With this card I was able to use some pieces from my stash... a lovely textured inked and embossed background and my gold embossed rose image - which I coloured with Distress Ink. I layered my panel on teal green onto a red card and to finish added a gold embossed sentiment.  I am posting to Double 'D' challenge : Sentiments/Quotes also The Flower Challenge #12 - Tic Tac Toe... using the top horizontal line - Embossing, Distress Inks, Sentiment. and finally to Just Add Ink challenge #378 - Add Texture.

Sprinkle Joy, Plant Kindness, Harvest Love

Harvest is the theme this week at The Paper Players PP362 - Clean and Simple challenge.  I stamped my country boy image in black on cream card and coloured the background with a waterwash technique, leaving a clear margin.  Framed my panel with burnt orange card and stamped my sentiment on a stitched die cut label. I sponged the edge and to finish added a die cut leaf.  Thanks for taking a peek

Honey is Sweet...

Playing along again with this months Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge - Shapes. I created the background with Distress Inks and sponging my Hexagon Shapes with a stencil.  Then I stamped and fussy cut the jar, watercolour washed in the 'honey' and hand printed the label.  I added some Dimensional Magic over some honey drips I drew in with a marker.  Stamped and fussy cut my spoon on silver card and to finish added a printed sentiment and a couple of little bees.  Thanks for taking a peek

Happy Birthday

For my card today I have used the colours at Power Poppy - Hues to Use (ongoing inspiration)... three shades of blue. I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to stamp my image 'off the edge' and also to colour the image.  I added some white highlights with gel pen and then cut and layered the two image panels to create a double fold card.  To finish I stamped and silver embossed my sentiment and added a few scattered gems.  I am also posting to Watercooler Wednesday challenge #WWC136 - All About Birthdays and The Flower Challenge #12 - Tic Tac Toe... I am playing the left vertical - Embossing, Gems, White.   Thanks for taking a peek


Merry Christmas

Now I do like a Wreath to celebrate the season... but I so have trouble with my wreath stamps, they just look awful or really I lack the creativeness to dress them up ...  SO when I saw this idea using a circle die, I had to try out this scribbly circle die and see if it could look like a wreath... I cut out the centers from the two different colour greens die cuts and dressed it up with a bow and few die cut flowers. To finish I stamped on my sentiment.  I like Tracey's modern feel to her wreath and white top panel framed in red... I am posting to Muse Card challenge #233, casing Tracey's card below and also to Addicted to Stamps and More #259 - Clean and Simple challenge.   Thanks for taking a peek
