Final card for the Love Fest Event ! :-)

Hi all :-) It has been a marathon week of crafting for me and I have really enjoyed it ,,, lots of fun ! :-)


The final challenge is hosted by The Greeting Farm and they have asked us to use a  die and make a love themed card.


I decided to make a Christmas card using the Simon Exclusives ‘Falling Stars’ die. I used some navy card, die cut it and then popped it on the card using pop dots, I love the way shadows are created doing this :-)  I tore strips of white card and embossed one using a Sizzix Dots Embossing Folder and glittered another with Hero Arts Prisma Glitter, and I added a strip of Washi Tape across the bottom.


I used a stamp set from The Greeting Farm, called ‘Warm and Cozy’, I coloured the snowpeople with Copics and cut them out, popping them on the snow drifts with pop dots. I added glossy accents to their nosed and black diamond stickles to their buttons. The sentiment is from a Wild Rose Studio sentiment set.

Thanks for looking :-)

Hello Spring !! :-)

Hi all :-) Happy Tuesday !! I hope you’re all well and looking forward to joining in with our new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

This week Dawny has made us a fab sketch to follow but if you’re not keen on that one you can choose any previous one ,,, just let us know which one you used ! :)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 voucher on offer for one lucky player :-)


I followed the sketch but made it rectangular instead :-)


I used the fabulous Simon Says StampMarch Card Kit. I stamped the stems using Hero Arts Grass Chalk Ink. I then stamped, coloured with Copics and fussy cut the flowers. I inked the edges with stormy sky distress ink and then stitched them all on my machine, I  wrapped some twine around the card ( in keeping with the elements on the sketch ,, sort of :)) and popped the whole panel up on pop dots.  The cute little bee is a new die from Memory Box ‘Jolly Bumblebees, and the sentiment is from the stamp set in the kit :-)


Thanks for looking :-) the girls have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the PTW to see them :-)
