Reverse Confetti SFYTT

Was lots of fun playing with this sketch and one that really lends itself to some patterned paper I think

I needed to make a few Baby cards so this was the perfect time to use my stamp set "Cute as a Button"

April 2017 Blog Hop PTI

This is the most organised I have been for a hop, I had my card ready to go five days ago and then forgot to take the photos and blog...............Now just five hours before closing I am blogging!
I have been quite active with the PTI challenges in the last few weeks and what I love is that I am getting joy from sets that have been sitting on my shelf for quite some time now. Wowser Painted Petals is such a beautiful set and I had a lovely time creating with it for this challenge. I took inspiration on the colours and did the smooching technique for my background for the very first was fun and one I plan on using more often as I love the look.

Thanks so much for dropping by today, I hope you have some crafting time to enjoy!

Patterns behind die cut windows was the challenge for this week and I think cards always look cool with the windows. I thought I would set myself a challenge for this one as I would gravitate towards florals...........Papertrey's florals are so lovely and very hard to resist stamping. So I was looking through my sets and spotted a pattern stamp that is used for like bookmark ends from the Half and Half set. So I embossed this and then went over it with some of the delish Stormy Seas ink.
I then used Enjoy the Ride Stamp set to finish my card making it good to go for my Uncles birthday, great when I can play the challenge and get ahead  on cards that are on the menu!

Release Week Challenge

Thursday, April 13, 2017

What an awesome week of new goodies so far! I am so in love with all the products but know that I am going to have to trim my list down to just a few. I had my order from the last release arrive on Monday and knew I wanted to use my new Butterfly hope stamp set as just adore these new butterflies. Given this I chose this adorable card for my inspiration...........

How beautiful is this card!

For my card I choose to work with Berry Sorbet and Lemon Tart in the card stock and inks. Thanks for visiting, may your Easter break be blessed.

Loved this weeks challenge by Lexi and will be making more cards with this design idea in mind.
The challenge was stamping outside the box, I think this would be one of the most CAS type cards I have ever made :) and the possibilities are endless really.
I used one of my stamps from the Woodblock Prints stamp set to create my background and then used the typewriter from Be Mine Valentine. Going to try and play along each week as time allows. I really need to get some of these awesome stamps inked and onto paper!
