To create my castle tower and turrets I used the

Sneak Peek! Eclectic Expressions Thank You Card TGIFC#146

Today I'm playing along with the TGIF challenge 146 with a sneak peek of the new Sale-a-bration stamp set coming this Friday called Eclectic Expressions. This is the sketch challenge:

To create my card I have first stamped the little circle from the stamp set and then I have die cut a heart shape using the Sweet and Sassy framelits. I have used a larger framelit to die cut a large heart shape :

I used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Dapper Denim inks and used a stamped-off technique to vary the colour on the Thank You sentiment. I then used my Classic Label punch. Finally I took a Melon Mambo card base and stamped the dashes from the sentiment in the background for a tone on tone look. Finally my card was finished with a Sale-a-bration shimmer ribbon in Basic Grey.

Thanks for joining me,



GDP#124 Blossoming Basket Bundle

You're a Fox ! 2 masculine cards

Having shared some pink and glitter cards for Valentines it's only fair to create some masculine cards because not all boys want pink and glitter !

So today I am combining the Foxy Friends, Hedgehugs and Truly Tailored stamp sets:

Beautiful Peacock with vellum

This is definitely a favourite technique - using vellum with your embossing folders. I just love the soft effect that it gives to cards.

Valentines Day Ideas

Sharing some fun ideas for Valentines!

First up, pink and glitter - no surprises there really as these are my favourite colours. Used my sewing machine again to secure the vellum shaker pocket to the card to ensure none of those flakes escape!

Pretty ? I hope my husband thinks so too ;)

Next up is a card inspired by my fellow Artisan Design Team member Jenni Pauli. She showed an amazing card on Instagram for her team's blog hop and I just had to CASE her!

I just love the creativity of this word search.

I hope you have fun creating one of your own !

And my final card today is a card that makes a big impact:

First you will need to watercolour a panel and let it dry. Then using the Large Letter framelits die cut your word from the panel and then from your DSP. I'm working with the beautiful Painted with Love DSP from the Spring:Summer catalogue.

The great thing about this process is that you now have some watercoloured letters waiting to be used on another creation :)

Remember to complete any stamping before you start putting your card together ;)

I hope these cards gave you some ideas, until next time,
