Clean and Simple Your next Stamp!

Hello folks,

Can't resist a clean and simple challenge and that's the theme for Your Next Stamp's Fun Friday Challenge:

I've used the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch for the layout - I thought it would fit perfectly with the sweet little spaceman from Blast Off!

Happy stamping!

FMS - Winter Wishes

Hi bloggers!

Time for a quick card for Freshly Made Sketches:

The sweet little penguin is from Penguin's Winter Adventure by Whimsy Stamps.  I've created the snowy background using CAS-ual Friday's Snowy Sayings so I'm also popping it over to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge to create your own patterned paper.

Happy stamping!

Ombre...or Maybe Not

Hello, hope you're having a good week!

Addicted to CAS has another code word to inspire which is 'ombre.' I used 3 similar shades of distress inks but two of them look almost identical so I'm afraid it's not very ombre-ish!

I also used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch - I found the sentiment placement quite difficult so ended up stamping on the diagonal with an Altenew sentiment.

Happy stamping!

FMS #382

Morning bloggers!

I coloured a second one of these sweet, Pure Innocence girls from MFT for this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

She was originally wearing a yellow dress but when I went to put the dots on,  the ink from the Copic marker splodged all over it, so I had to blend it in as best I could and turn it orange. You can see where I haven't blended properly as there was just too much ink - looks as though she's spilt something, messy girl!

The blue background was done using Colorburst and MFT's Bundles of Blossoms. I didn't put the sentiment on the flag as it was way too long! 

Enjoy the weekend!

MFT Sketch and Colour Challenges

Hello folks,

Here's a card I made combining the colours from My Favourite Things' Colour Challenge and their latest sketch:


I used Pure Innocence Butterfly Kisses - the background is Happy Birthday Background white embossed over yellow Colorburst. 

Thanks for stopping!

Fusion - Take 2

Hello fellow inkers!

I enjoyed the Fusion challenge so much that I thought I'd have a second go at it. This time I looked at the picture with my glasses on - and realised that there isn't actually any orange on it.  You can see my previous, incorrect take on it if you look at the previous post!  Note to self: keep my specs on when crafting! I used the latest sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout:

The second card is for Time Out - I thought there was so much to draw from - the striped cushion, the butterfly and the way the wall has the subtle detail which almost looks like it's embossed:

Have a fabulous week!
