Anything goes Southern Girls Challenge

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

First Challenge for 2019 and it is anything goes. I decided to use a stamp set from Neat and Tangled that I had bought and not used. I have made this card to send to a beautiful soul in England who is battling breast cancer. Inside the card is stamped You Rock which is just the right sentiment for this amazing woman. Despite all the challenges in her life Sue remains positive and is fighting like a champ. Love that we can make and send cards <3

Southern Girls Glitter Challenge

Was excited to see that the last challenge for this year was to add glitter to your creation. I adore sparkles and have some gorgeous glitter pastes in my stash that have been needing to be used :)
I decided to go with gold glitter paste and just had fun. Hope you like my card for today. I look forward to new challenges next year :)

Southern Girls Challenge

Tuesday, December 4, 2018

Yay this week is anything goes and I am happy as I have really enjoyed doing blended backgrounds so much and this gave me a very good excuse to do another. Please go and check the blog out as the team really did give some awesome inspiration and there are more than cards to check out.
I am so hoping to do a wedding album for me next year full of beautiful memories of the hubby I still love and miss so dearly. This weeks inspiration has spurred me on to stop thinking about it and start doing it!. Here is my card for this fortnights challenge. I so LOVE snowmen and this one just captured my heart. He is from Sweet n Sassy and I love him so. I cannot believe that this is the first time he has seen ink!

Thanks for stopping by!

Couldn't resist!

I so enjoyed ink splatters that I decided to have another play and here is my second card for the Southern Girls Challenge.  Check this blog out and it is super awesome as there is a good component of Kiwi and Aussie Cardmakers in this group. It would be lovely to get to know a few more local crafters!
I have had this set sitting in view for more time that I care to confess and thought it would look good with a oxide ink backdrop with splatters. I have lots of distress inks but only one oxide pad and was keen to try it out. LOVE how it blends onto the cardstock!
So here is my second card with oxide ink splatters and stamps coloured with distress ink pens.
Many thanks for dropping by.

Southern Girls Challenge

Saturday, November 17, 2018

This fortnight for the Southern Girls Challenge the theme is Inks and Sprays. I received a little parcel from Papertrey ink this week and had spoiled myself somewhat with the beautiful Botanical Bounty set so thought I would ink up those beautiful blossoms and throw a few ink splatters about :).
I also used a lovely die that is from a series being done this year called shape shifters............Love them to bits!. I used Papertrey Inks to colour my blossoms and the light blue is looking a little gray in my photo. So hard to get a true reflection of the colours :). Well here is my card, thanks for stopping by.  Check out this awesome Challenge,  would love to see you sharing there to!

Papertrey Create Along With Us

Monday, November 12, 2018

Yet again Papertrey ink are sharing peeks of another amazing release. I just keep loving everything and wish I had a Champagne pocket rather than a beer pocket :) but hey I am blessed to be able to purchase some of what I love. I am playing along with the Create along with us challenge and today I have been insprired by Betsy Veldman's beautiful Card. I have taken the inspiration of her beautiful sky background to make my card today
Here is the card I used for my inspiration, so beautiful!

This is the card I created after being so inspired by the talent of Betsy <3
