BOUQUET OF THANKS

 Morning Everyone,

This is a card made with a Simon Says stamp set called Bouquet of Thanks.


I have heat embossed in gold onto watercolour paper and then coloured the flowers with my Zig markers in brights.  It was a bit of an experiment trying out different colours. The sentiment is also heat embossed and from a Stampin Up set.  I found a snippet of orange paper to match and layered everything onto gold pearlescent card.

I would like to enter:

Passion for Markers - Use rubber or Clear stamps
Rabisco Challenge - Anything Goes
Snippets Playground - snippets used were the orange paper and sentiment
The Corrosive challenge - Anything Goes

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a good day.

METALLIC OR GLITTER CARD STOCK

Morning Everyone,

There is a new challenge starting over at As You Like It and we are asking you to showcase a project using your favourite of either Metallic or Glitter card stock. 



I use a lot more metallic than glitter, mainly because I tend to use glitter card only on Christmas cards, but when I heat emboss something mirror card goes so well with it.

For my DT card I have used a Stampin Up Magnolia stamp heat embossed in gold and coloured very lightly in pink and green.  Gold mirri card has been used for the mats and I've just added 6 glitter dots in the same colours.  Very simple, but I am pleased with how it turned out.

I haven't added a sentiment as not yet decided what to use it for.

FAVOURITE SHAPE OF CARD

Good Morning Everyone,

Today is the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and we are asking you to share cards using your favourite shape.  This can be square, rectangle or any other shape.

 


I normally use ready made card blanks for my square and rectangular cards, which are the shapes I use the most, but when I want a change this Go Kreate die is my favourite.  I think it makes a card that little bit different and special.  

I have used an image kindly provided by our sponsor, Amanda Jayne Designs, called Daisy Sitting Among Flowers.  I have coloured with copics and used old papers from LOTV.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will be able to join us with this easy theme.

For my card I have used a stamp from Whipper Snapper called Prescott coloured with copics and fussy cut  to add to the little snowy scene.  Glitter has been added to his hat  and skate and to the snow and trees.  Finished off with a die cut sentiment and silver mirri card for the mat.

There's still plenty of time to enter until Sept 13th when the challenge finishes.

CAS CHRISTMAS

 Morning All,

I've made a CAS Christmas card featuring a Penny Black stamp called Pinecone Perch.


It has been stamped on copic friendly paper and coloured with copics, cut out with a mini scalloped die and added the heat embossed sentiment which also comes with the stamp.  I placed it directly onto the white hammered base, but it didn't look quite right so I added a red mat for a bit of colour.  I would have rounded the edges, but I seemed to have lost my corner punch somewhere!  Searched high and low, but can't find it.  I'm sure it'll turn up somewhere unexpected.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for visiting, have a good week and I will be back on Wednesday.

FAVOURITE DOMESTIC ANIMAL

Morning All,

It's the start of a new challenge at As You Like It and this time we are asking you to share a project containing your favourite domestic animal. 


My fave is definitely a dog.  We have two of them and they are so loving and loyal.  For my card I have used an old LOTV stamp called Buckets of Love, I think.  I have coloured him with copics on a snippet of copic friendly paper and used checked paper to match.  The Sending die has been cut 3 times and is from Simon Says Stamp.   A few little bubbles have been added and glossy accents to the water, which you can't really see in the photo.

The sponsor for the challenge is:
