Mother’s Day Card 2

Another card I made for the Altenew May inspiration challenge. The background was made using embossing paste and the flower was fussy cut and added with dimensional foam. Some splatters of white paint were added to complete the card! I’m also adding this to SImon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  - For a Special Lady.
Happy Mother’s Day!!

Mother's Day Card 1

I'm back with a couple of quick Mother's Day cards made from the one set of die cuts from Altenew. I prefer to use the A6 card size and most coverplates come in the American size which is a bit wider and shorter and does not fit into the A6 envelopes. So I decided to cut this die cut down and made two cards with them instead! I’m adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - For a Special Lady. Thanks for dropping by!

Always there

It’s been a while since I’ve crafted. I recently attended an Altenew workshop in Melbourne with Tasnim and Therese! Yes, it was in Melbourne!! I purchased this set whilst I was there. The inks were part of a set that was given to us as part of the workshop. I based the card on the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge (there are three score lines behind the flowers which is hard to photograph). Thanks for dropping by!

First Post for 2019!

It’s been a really busy and crazy two months for me and I’m so glad to finally find time and energy to make a couple of cards. As all my followers know, I usually make at least two cards every time I have to make one. Why not? When you have all the materials out! I’ve decided to use the current CAS(E) this Sketch sketch and the wonderful Washi tapes from Altenew to make these cards. So they were quick to make!

Peace and Joy

These are the last  of my Christmas cards and I've started giving them out on the weekend. I've use the Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz Stamptember set to make this series of cards. They were so easy to make in production line with the Misti! I'm adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes. Thanks for dropping by!

Baby it’s cold outside

We are at the start of Summer in Melbourne and just in the last two weeks, we’ve had a cold snap with lots of rain and windy days! I’ve had fun in mass producing some really easy Christmas cards using the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember release of the Tim Holtz stamps. The huge Glorious Gatherings stamp is so large, I’ve managed to create two cards with the one stamp. I also love all the Christmas sentiments which came with the set. I’m adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Baby it’s cold outside!

CTS 297

I had fun making these really quick Christmas cards. The first one was based on a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. I decided to use my new Tim Holtz stamps for this challenge. I stamped the image around 3-4 times using my Misti with two shades of inks. The sentiment was gold embossed and background splatters were made with the same ink and gold watercolour ink. The second card was made with the image cut out, mounted on gold card stock and dimensional foam added. I ended up making 6 of the second card! Thanks for dropping by!
