Something New

Happy New Year everyone! This is my first post for 2018! I've had a very hectic Festive period and had not had much time to make any cards. This is my first card this year. I had to attend a funeral yesterday and ran out of Sympathy cards. I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #253 and got out my new Distress Oxide inks for the background inking.
I'm adding this to
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Something New.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Something New
Less Is More Purples Challenge
Thanks for dropping by!

Materials:
Stencil - Hero Arts
Stamp - Altenew
Inks - Distress Oxides Wilted Violet and Faded Jeans

Winter Wishes

These are the last lot of Christmas cards I've made. I have used the background stamp from Hero Arts with wreath dies from Concord and 9th and MFT and the sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp to make two variations.  I'm adding this to the A Blog Named Hero's Winter Holiday challenge. Now that all the cards are done, I need to do tags next!!

Materials
Stamps - Hero Arts Picnic Blanket Bold Print
Dies - Concord and 9th, MFT, Simon Says Stamp
Inks - Hero Arts

Challenge me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton and Friends


I'm very excited to take part in Michelle Lupton's Christmas challenge this year! Michelle challenged me to make a 'Purple' Christmas card. Make sure you pop over to her blog to see what she made! Here is my interpretation of the challenge. I used the die from Concord and 9th to create a stencil and added some droplets of water and clear drops to decorate the tree. The sentiment was embossed with various embossing powders.

Thanks for dropping by!

A Winter's Greetings

Here's a card using patterned paper from the Kaisercraft Mint Wishes collection, a sillouhette stamp and a bit of inking around the ages. This was a really quick card to make and I used these Hero Arts stamps for the first time (they've been in my my stash for a while... shhh...) I'm adding this card to A Blog Named Hero's Winter Holiday Challenge. Anyway, thanks for dropping by!

Farewell card for Priti

I have a farewell card for a work colleague to share. The card is made to A4 size to allow plenty room for messages. When looking for a cardstock to use, I was going to use a watercolour card but decided against it when it looked too yellow next to the card base. So I decided to use the Tim Holtz Specialty Stamping Paper (this has been sitting there untouched for ages). I embossed the images and then proceeded to colour them in with distress inks. The last bit of touches were some gold paint splatters and some clear drops. I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Materials:
Card - Tim Holtz Specialty Stamping Paper, Neenah Solar White, Gold Card
Stamps - Altenew Beautiful Day, Hero Arts Alphabets, Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script
Inks - Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserve, Peeled Paint and Broken China, Kuretake Gansai Tambi gold paint
Others - Hero Arts Gold EP, Versamark, Versafine, Pretty Posh Pink Clear Drops
