Less is More - CASE Card

Hello folks,

Not a card in sight in this household, just a very heavy workload and no time to get inky unfortunately. This little card for Less is More took all of 2 weeks, 10 minutes here and there amidst all the chaos:

The challenge is to CASe Sharon's beautiful card. I wanted to go with a masculine version so coloured some fishing themed images with some Copics and distress inked a watery strip to set them against. The sentiment's from Mama Elephant. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Time Out - Breast Cancer Awareness

Hello, hello,

It's Breast Cancer Awareness month so Time Out's challenge is to create a card of encouragement:


What could be more encouraging than telling someone you love them, especially if they're going through something as horrendous as breast cancer? 

I've used the colours from MFT's colour challenge, using their Heart Tree Die-namics with some patterned papers from the now retired Sweet Celebrations paper pad.  The Grout Gray background has been embossed with Circle Celebration Background and the image has been framed using Stitched Rectangle Frames Die-namics. The sentiment isn't MFT - it's Taylored Expressions.

I've also used Jen Timko's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, adding a little wooden heart for embellishment to finish it off.

Happy stamping!

Autumn Inspired...

Hello inkers, hope you're having a great start to the week!

I've made an Autumn inspired card using Jen's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I stamped PTI's Lovely Layers using the colours at The Color Throwdown:

I also used The Card Concept's image for a bit of inspiration again - the leaves,  Autumn colours and the grout grey background. I think it's in the Classy and Elegant style!

Thanks for popping by,

CAS on Friday - Guest Designer

Hello folks,

I'm chuffed to bits to be Guest Designer over at CAS on Friday today. They have another great clean and simple challenge for you with the theme of 'Autumn':


I used some Autumn inspired distress inks for my card, sponging them over a Funky Fossil leaf stencil, with a sentiment from Tailored Expressions. The Stamplorations butterfly die cut has been embossed with gold embossing powder. 

Hope you get time to get the inks out over the weekend!
