Inksiprational #150

Hi All

A new challenge starts today at Inkspirational and this time it is our word prompt challenge and the word is:


I thought this sentiment from Verve was perfect for this challenge:

I made another bauble card using my Nativity Die from Penny Black. This time using glitter card to back the bauble and cut the die from glitter card also. I used some clear acetate to make it look more like a real bauble.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Valentyna. Her blog is full of creative and inspiring projects. Take a look here and you will see what I mean.

All the DT have made amazing projects to inspire you to join in.

Have A Beautiful Day!

Hi There,

Popping in to wish you all a Beautiful Day with this card I made for you all!

I love using grey in card making and so the 'grey' challenge at CASology was perfect for me.

This flower from Altenew is heat embossed on a brusho sheet from my stash and then die cut. I popped it up on some foam pads for dimension. Then heat embossed the Altenew sentiment onto the grey stitched base.

The latest Altenew challenge is to choose a previous month's inspiration. I went with the September photo using the grey background, the purple flowers and the blue of the jug.

Rejoice in The Season

Hello There,

I hope you are all having a fun weekend?

I have been wanting to enter the 'round' challenge at CASology all week and finally got to make the card that came into my head as soon as I saw the challenge.

Here it is:

Pretty easy to see all my round elements here!
The Nativity scene is actually cut from glitter card but it is hard to show that at the moment as it is very dull here in London!

The die is from Penny Black and the sentiment from Uniko

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Inkspirational #149

Hi All

A new photo challenge starts at Inkspirational today.

The dies and sentiment are all from My Favourite Things.

And here is the photo:

Pretty easy to see what inspired me here!

I actually made this card way back in August for my Brother's 50th...he enjoys a glass of wine!
The cork here is actually real cork with a sticky back given to me a while ago by Loll and I hand wrote '50 today'

The team have all been inspired in amazing ways by this photo.
Take a look here and then get inky.

Enjoy x

Real Friends!

Hi There,

Yesterday when I saw the 'let it shine' challenge at Less is More, I looked around my craft desk and saw the sprakly wine glass dies I had used to make this card. This challenge gave me the perfect way to use up some stash and I made this:

I just embossed the white card with a fabric folder-love the texture this gives. And white heat embossed the sentiment on black card and popped it up on foam pads. These wine glasses are cut from glitter card.
The sentiment and dies are both from My Favourite Things
