Be Inspired Class Card 2

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

I am so glad I took this class as it has inspired me to do techniques that I have admired but never tried for myself. Today I blended distress inks again this time on smooth cardstock over a beautiful embossed background stamp from MFT. Thanks for dropping by!

Be Inspired Classes

Monday, July 27, 2015

I have been taking the Be Inspired Classes with Nicole for the latest release from MFT and this lesson was about creating night sky backgrounds. This is a technique I had not yet tried and it was done onto the textured side of water colour paper. I have to say Nicole makes it look so easy and her blending is perfect, mine not so much but it was fun and I am going to keep making a few of these backgrounds, next I will try it on smooth card stock. Thanks for dropping by today!.

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

I just recently purchased my very first Unity Stamps and love them to pieces <3 . I cannot resist playing along with the Challenge and who can blame me 1. it is fun to use these lovely stamps and 2. What a very awesome prize to be won by some lucky participant <3. I used the butterfly from the February Kit of the Month along with the sentiment out of the same kit. Thanks for dropping by today :) and happy stamping.

Viva la Verve Week 3

Sunday, July 19, 2015

Love this sketch and decided to make a Christmas card for this one as it would be awesome to make all my own this year instead of falling short and having to buy some :). I have used lovely Kaiser Craft Papers for this one that were released for Christmas two years ago but I hoard paper like Scrooge Mc Duck would hoard his money :). The stamp set used is Verve Pinecone Christmas I expect I will make a few cards with this awesome set this year. Thanks for dropping in, happy card making.

I love this sketch and will be putting it into my favorites to use again for sure. I have also made this card to enter into the July Inspiration Challenge and here is the inspiration pic. I din't use the colours but did incorporate the stripes :)

I love this new set to bits, it is called Sparkly bits and the fonts used are beautiful. I have also included the beautiful butterfly that is included in the set :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

MFT Challenge

Monday, July 6, 2015

It is only recently that I acquired this set LJD Celebrate You, but it has been on my wishlist since it first came out :). Thanks for your visit today, looking forward to the next Challenge and the new release just around the corner. I sure do love the new blueprints and those bears especially :)

Viva la Verve Week One

Saturday, July 4, 2015

For this weeks card I used two retired sets on my card. The first was the little flowers from the Feel the Sun set which I stamped as a background. Then I used the sweetest sentiment ever and really wish that this is how it could have been with my husband whom I am slowly learning to do life without. Making this card was like therapy and I think Pooh must have had the sweetest heart that ever was given :)
