i always have my colour wheel nearby so that was my inspiration for the rainbow coloured snail from the lawn fawn gleeful gardens set; a bit of artistic license because i added gold. fussy cutting is something i don’t do very often due to my RA, but i cut this little cutie out and painted everything with twinkling H2Os and albrecht durer watercolour pencils. the sentiment and banners are from the  lawn fawn birthday tags set.

i’d also like to submit this to simon says work it wednesday challenge: wafer thin dies.

Birthday Prezzie

this little taylored expression present die is so cute that i created another birthday card with it; i used the taylored expressions’ share joy challenge 44: a sketch and clean and simple theme.

i painted the prezzie with twinkling H2Os, added stickles to the dots and bow and popped it on foam tape; i used the sketch on the tag which was then attached to the card and the little flower from the little bits flip flop die fit nicely inside.

U R Fabulous

i won’t finish my set of hello cards to make the deadline, but i finished a card i started earlier for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 289:

this was a quick and easy card; i altered the u and r from the MFT fabulous word die, added some pretty pink posh gold stars and sanded the embossed stripes on the designer paper. thanks for popping by.

i made another masculine card for this month’s penny black and more challenge; this month’s theme is quite an easy one – it’s anything goes with a stamp so you still have plenty of time to join us!

i watercoloured this sweet teddy image from the penny black clear stamp set ‘a bear of all trades’ 30-108 with twinkling H2Os.

i hope you’ll come and play along – remember, you can use any company’s stamp for your focal point, just no digis please; a future guest designer will be selected from those who use a PB image and as always, there are some fabulous prizes to be won from: Penny Black, Sizzix, Stamp Addicts, Crafty Ribbons.

i’m playing along with the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 289:

i love my new MFT hello die; i’m working on creating a set of cards with it and i thought it would work perfectly with this week’s sketch. i attached the purple glitter die cut to a piece of watercolour paper that i scored, splattered and distressed with twinkling H2Os; the two butterflies were punched from coordinating paper. thanks for popping by.

Ombre Christmas Card

the current prompt at the jingle belles is Ombre Colors of Christmas and this beautiful inspiration photo:

i started off by painting ombre die cut presents, but decided they were better suited to a birthday card, so that’s what it ended up as. i experimented with a few colour combinations and my twinkling H2Os until i was happy with my choices for a christmas card. as usual, i used my twinks on this penny black die that i inlaid against the snowflake embossed background.

i’d also like to submit this to:
ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is ‘N is for No Rules!’
Simon Says work it wednesday challenge: wafer thin dies.

Presents For You

since caring for a family member, i’ve not had much time to create, other than scheduled posts, so i had fun making this birthday card for my daughter. i’m playing  along with the taylored expressions’ share joy challenge 42:

i sponged distress inks onto a pre-embossed sheet of paper, added the white dots around the scrolls, added more colour to the butterflies with coloured pencils, attached the MFT Die-namics Hello There and used permanent markers to colour some clear hologram dot stickers green.

i hope you’ll come and play along! different groups will have their creative cards showcased on the challenge blog every five days, so check back for a variety of styles by the rest of the design team.

MFT Camp Create Day 5

it’s very rare for me to post so often, but i managed to make it to day 5 of the my favorite things camp create challenge – the best kind of camping: staying indoors and creating.

the theme for the last day is Camp Create – Spectacular Shakers. it was a good learning experience since i don’t make shaker cards very often; i should’ve used more colourful seed beads against a white background instead of mostly clear sequins against the purple, which barely shows. i used the MFT Die-namics Hello There and it was a fun card to make and i have another card for my stash. thanks for popping by.

MFT Camp Create Day 4

this was a fun card to make that came together very quickly for day 4 of the my favorite things Camp Create – Delightful Die Cutting challenge.

MFT Camp Create Day 3

this is my favourite camp challenge because i love watercolouring images and backgrounds; it’s so relaxing.

i used another of the cute images from the MFT Snuggle Bunnies clear stamp set to create this card for day 3 of the my favorite things Camp Create – Wonderful Watercolor challenge. as of this writing, this adorable stamp set is out of stock, but you can sign up for email notification when it’s back in.

as usual, i watercoloured the background and images with twinkling H2Os and, since i was short on time, kept the card simple. thanks for popping by.
