Layered Wreath Card

Thursday, October 12, 2017
Hi everyone.
Sharing a card with you today that I have made for my next card class at Create on Ormond. I have used the Tim Holtz Alterations Layered Holiday Wreath die and for the background which is inked with Distress Oxide Inks - I have used the Taylored Expressions "Brick" embossing folder. The sentiments I have used are from Altenew - Halftone Holidays set, stamped on kraft cardstock and coloured with Copics, then used the Halftone Holidays die set to cut the word out. 

Thanks for looking.

Crafty Creations Challenge

Hi Everyone. I have had a bit of a posting lapse with so many things going on in my personal life, that although I have been making cards, I have not been prioritising sharing them on my blog. I get as far as putting them on Instagram and that is about all. Sometimes you fall into a bit of a slump in motivation I suppose :(

Anyhoooooo - I did want to share with you  the card I made for the last Crafty Creations Challenge and to make sure I gave a shout out to our great sponsor - Cute as a Button Stamps!
As usual I am trying to build up my Christmas card stash (not long to go now!!) so I chose the lovely image - Reindeer Bells to play with. The image is coloured with copic markers, and the sentiment I used was from Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking.

Tuesday, July 25, 2017
Hi Everyone, time for my spotlight post over at Scrap 'n' Dipity. For my card this month I am giving you a sneak peak of a gorgeous image that will be available in August - Introducing....FENNA. 

I have coloured the image with Copic markers. Then teamed the image up with a few layers of patterned paper, then pulled out my new Best Wishes die which I have cut in purple and black, then put on some sparkle with a gelly roll stardust clear glitter pen. I also added some glossy accents to the glasses, which is a bit hard to see on the photo but looks good in real life.

Hop over to the Scrap 'n' Dipity Store to pick up some great digi images and get colouring!
