Muse Challenge #288

Hello again!  I managed to make another card for the Muse Challenge 288.  Laurel Beard is this weeks Muse with this beautiful watercolour floral card.

                                                                   Laurel's card.

I used the same method as Laurel and inked up my CP Designs floral stamps with CP Ink and sprayed with a light mist of water before stamping onto water colour card stock.  I stamped the layering stamp over the top once it had dried for some more detail in the same colour ink.  I die cut the "Happy" from my stamped panel and stacked it with two other die cuts and inlaid it back onto my panel. I stamped the "birthday" onto a strip of Bristol card stock to match my card panel and adhered it with some foam tape.
Here's my card, and you can click HERE to take you over to the Muse Challenge blog.


Thanks for looking and have a great week!

Christmas Challenges

Hello, today I am playing along in two challenges!  They are both Christmas themed so I made a card that fits both.  

Muse Christmas Visions 111.  This weeks Muse is Lindsey with this beautiful card.
                                                              Lindsey's card.

I stamped a tree from Stamp It three times with Kaleidacolor Ink and added some glitter using a glue pen.  It's pretty much a direct CASE of Lindsey's card!

The second challenge is Watercooler Wednesday where Tristan is hosting "All about Holidays" WWC 193.



Thanks for looking and hopefully I will get some time today to make a some more cards and enter a few more challenges.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #211

Image may contain: text

Hello and happy Friday!   We have another new challenge up on the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog today.  Aren't the weeks flying by!!  It will be Christmas before we know it.  I am just back from a trip up north to the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.   We got to see some whales in the distance from our balcony  frolicking in the ocean! It was so relaxing up there even though the weather was a bit unseasonal!  We had lots of rain, some sunshine and some storms but the whales made up for it!

 This week we have a photo to inspire you. I took my inspiration from the wood grain and pulled out an old embossing folder.  I stamped the leaves from Pretty Posies stamp set and heat embossed them using rose gold embossing powder.  I used my scan n cut to cut them all out.  I do have the coordinating dies for this set but because I stamped so many of them, I find the scan n cut nice and quick for multiples. I stamped the sentiment from the Foxy stamp set and heat embossed it with the same rose gold embossing powder.


Thanks for looking and I would love to see your card in the gallery over at the Challenge Blog.  All you have to do is make a card using the photo as inspiration and link it up here for the chance to win a US$25 gift voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop.  If you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card, Michele will double the prize to US$50.  Good luck!

Pinks and Greys - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #210

No automatic alt text available.

Hello and happy Friday!  We have a fun colour challenge over at the CAS-ual Fridays Inspiration Blog today.  We challenge you to make a card using Pinks and Greys!  Two of my favourite colour combinations!  I have used the "Bushy Tailed" stamp set for my card today.  I coloured him in with alcohol markers,  cut him out using my scan n cut and popped him up onto a stencilled background.  The sentiment is from the same Bushy Tailed stamp set.


If you would like the chance to win a $25 voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays shop, all you have to do is make a card using pink and greys and link it up on the challenge blog here.  Michele will double the prize to $50 if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps as the main focus of your card!  Good luck!


Thanks for looking!

Muse Challenge #285

Hello and happy Monday!  My card today is for the current Muse challenge and I'm doing an Aileen and entering at the last minute! LOL  I had a busy weekend with lots of visitors so my card making took a back seat.  

The Muse this week is Anita with this beautiful card.


I was inspired by the leaves and the white frame.  After I stencilled with Distress inks, I sprayed my card panel with perfect pearls which doesn't really show up in the photo but it is very shimmery in real life!


                                             Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Muse Christmas Challenge

Hello and happy Friday.  My card today is for the Muse Christmas Visions 110 challenge.  Cornelia is the Muse with this beautiful card.  


I was inspired by the trees and the beautiful sky on Cornelia's card.  I pulled out another old stamp set of mine from Hero Arts called Winter Trees and inked it up with my Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad.  I used a quickie glue pen on the branches and sprinkled with diamond glitter.  The sentiment is from a set I got with a magazine.


Do you like my new Shell Logo?   My very talented friend Tristan from Tinstar Designs made it for me.

Thanks for looking!
