MFT Sketch Challenge #564

Hello, hope you're having a great weekend!

Still playing with new goodies from MFT - this time SY Selfies with Santa for sketch challenge #564:


Needless to say I didn't find this the easiest sketch to work with but I like how it turned out in the end - I used a die from the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics and added some paper strips from various MFT paper pads. The heart die is from Blueprints 27. 

Happy stamping!

MFT Colour Challenge #175

Hello again,

I bought some new MFT goodies last week - another one of my favourite Pure Innocence images called Freezings Greetings:


I didn't immediately think 'Christmas' when I saw the colours but I do like a different Christmas combo instead of the traditional green and red. Its a more modern and fresh version, particularly with the lemon thrown in!

I've embossed the background with Christmas Background stamp and the dp is from the Very Merry Paper Pad. 

This one's also going over to Addicted to Stamps and More's Make Your Mark challenge. 

Happy stamping!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #110

Hello inkers,

We are officially out of lockdown here in Sydney - I'd like to say I've been partying up a storm but since I've been working, I actually haven't tasted freedom yet!

Anyway, here's a CAS card for the current Lawn Fanatics challenge  using an inspiration pic featuring pretty Autumnal colours against a blue sky:


No blue in this one - instead I focussed on the colours of the leaves and branches. Living in Australia, I miss the brilliant colours of a UK Autumn - the seasons here aren't as distinct and we just don't get beautiful reds, oranges and yellows on the trees.

I used the now retired Blissful Botanicals, coloured with Copics with a sentiment from A Birdie Told Me.

Thanks for popping by,

CAS Birthday

Hello again,

Here's a very CAS card for AAA Cards 200th birthday challenge using stamps from two different Winnie and Walter sets and a sentiment from Waltzingmouse.  

I used the gorgeous colours from Sunday Stamps - they always have such great colour combos - and the theme from CAS on Friday which is  Circles

It's such a simple design - I might use it for some Christmas cards too!

Happy stamping!

MFT Sketch Challenge #174

Hello again,

Another day, another card - a positive of lockdown is I'll have all my Christmas cards done and dusted by November. You have to look on the bright side don't you? This one's for MFT's latest sketch challenge:

I've used Christmas sELFies with dp from the Very Merry Paper Pad. The sentiment's from Bitty Holiday Wishes. 

Happy stamping!

Alex Syberia Blooms

Hello folks,

Only a week to go until 'Freedom Day' for Sydney - there's light at the end of the lockdown tunnel! It's the little things I've missed...just to go into a shop and browse, have a drink at a bar and catch up with friends. We take so much for granted!

Here's another card featuring one of Alex Syberia's pretty Digi stamps called Dog Rose:

I've used the colours from Colour Throwdown, coloured the blooms with Copics and stencilled a distress ink panel splashed with a little water. The sentiment's from Just Add Ink.  It's also going over to Time Out's Inspired by Words challenge and Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge where 'anything goes'.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
