Wishing you Peace...

I've surprised myself -I'm back! 
I do love this challenge at Festive Friday -I'm building up my store for Christmas. 

Here is another card for the week with the theme peace. 
I've gone with the same colours and the idea of hands holding something. 
I've used washi tape at the side ( and it's coming off. Ill have to fix that). 

The angel is stamped and paper pieced. 
I used a background stamp and then stamped the angel and cut the gown out.
The angel is from Whimsical wishes-Taylored Expressions
The sentiment is PTI- Happiest of Holidays.. 

Thanks for looking!

Hello everyone, it's taken me some time to post again. 
I do find time to make the cards but  I delay the posting and I'm not sure why.
 This card was quick but I like it.
The challenge on Festive Friday is for a card with the word peace as the theme. 
 The text and the heart are both from Annabelle stamps. 
I drew a freehand line to hold the heart and it was finished. The card is 4 x 4 inches. 
The words are straight - for some reason they look slanted in the photo and blurry...maybe that's why I put  off posting!. 


I've added this photo because it's not so blurry!

 Thanks for looking!
I'll be around soon to take a look at all the lovely creations!

Candy Canes

Good afternoon everyone,
I enjoyed the pink white and silver card for the last Festive Friday challenge and I definitely need more Christmas cards so I'm back again. The challenge this time is for a card with Candy Canes.

This stamp is from Inkadinkado . 
I've heat embossed the stocking with gold and the top with glitter on craft card..
The candy canes are inked with fired brick distress ink and clear embossed. 
The sentiment at the top is from PTI.
The background is a Julie Nutting Tag Pad - so the card was quick to put together.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking.

Pink, Silver and White Christmas

Hello everyone,
I found a new challenge at Festive Friday and thought I'd like to join in!
Darnell suggested I enter this in the Addicted to CAS challenge as well.
The cue is glitter so I guess that makes sense . I've edited this post to do just that . Thanks Darnell!
I've had this card made for a few days now but I've had trouble taking a photo.
The colours seem to show grey and it actually has quite a bit of pink - but it's hard to tell on the photo. 
The  Christmas tree is from Annabelle stamps - it's an Australian company. 

I've used pale pink sequins on some of the circles but they're hard to see so I added a few hot pink as well. There is pink glitter in other circles and  Copic marker around the circles to add to the silver look!
 It sure sparkles in real life. 
The Merry Christmas is a Smooches stamp. 

Thanks for looking.

RED shoes

I had to try this Prima stamp as well for the Less is More challenge. 
The inspiration is a Pinterest  photo of some high heeled shoes. 
I've been thinking... and red shoes and clicking heels came to mind! So I've made another card.
The skirt is layered once again and the shoes have  glossy accents  applied- they look good I think.
I've printed  the words as I have no shoe themed sentiments. 

Thanks for looking!

More shoes...

"Here's another card for  this weeks "Less is More"challenge .

Week 130 A Pinterest Picture Inspiration

I've had these JustRite-Just Keep Calm stamps for some time and haven't used them.
I was just waiting for an idea and who knew it would be shoes!
 I heat embossed the stamped images and cut around the frame with the scissors.
I'm happy with the result!

Thanks for looking.

put on your dancing shoes

Hello again.... it's been a few months once again!
I don't know what happens really.
 I have been making cards I just haven't gotten around to posting them.
Anyway- here are some cards I made today made for the new "Less is More" challenge.

Week 130 A Pinterest Picture Inspiration

and the picture is FAB shoes.

I made the second card first  and decided  it may be too busy for "Less is More".
So, I made another  ( although I think I like the busy one more).
The figure is a Prima Doll stamp which I've paper pieced.
 I decided to show only the skirt and the legs because it gave more emphasis to the SHOES.
The sentiment is one I made up and printed. I cut up the words and coloured  with distress ink.
The cards look great in real life because the skirt and petticoat are layered!
The orange skirt isn't black on the right side- it's the shadow on the layered sections.
I hope you like them.

I enjoyed the paper I might be back sooner rather than later!
Cheers for now and thanks for looking!

Happy Easter

Here is my take on the CASalogy challenge- the cue is BUNNY.

 My stamp is from Kazzaz.
I've stamped it twice and then coloured and cut one bunny  to layer on the other. 
Thanks for looking!

Warm ( hot) hello

I saw the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays (CFC92: Wall Paper) and decided to have a go!
 I love vibrant wallpaper! So my card is bright- sorry! 

I've clear embossed a large Hero Arts Stamp and then applied distress ink direct to the card. 
The sentiment ( I can't remember the company) is attached with ribbon.

Thanks for looking!

It's a glorious autumn afternoon here and I've just come inside to post this card for the CASology challenge. 
The word to work by is CIRCLES.

I've decided to use a stamp that I love and have not managed to use yet.
 I love this saying from Gandhi. It's not the easiest to use though and because of the circle theme I thought it was a good opportunity. 

The stamp is from a quote bundle pack by Unity Stamps. 

I've heat embossed it and added a few jewels.
I'm not too sure of the sketch but I think it works. 

Sweet Baby

Love the colour challenge at Simply Less is More ( week 109)! 
The soft pinks and creams made me think of sweet babies and this is what I come up with.

I've used a Memory Box die for the pram and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
The little hearts are iridescent- lovely in real life. 

Thanks for looking!

Paper piercing

Hello again, things are looking up. This is my second card in two days!
 Here is a card with paper piercing that I've made for the Simply Less is More challenge this week. 

I've used a Cuttlebug folder and the stamp is Papertrey Inc. 
The colour is more teal - it must be the night light that has altered it. 
Thanks for looking. I'll be around tomorrow to take a look at the other cards.
 It's almost 2.00 am so I'm off to bed.
 Goodnight for now!
