WWYS #112 Carousel Birthday WWYS #112 Carousel Birthday. Happy weekend to you all and I’m here with another challenge entry today for WWYS #112 Carousel Birthday. I just love this set from the current Occasions Catalogue and it is still available in Clear Mount or Wood Mount. I decided to create a bit of a scene with this set and used masking as a technique as well as some splattering with the Gold Wink of Stella.  I’ve also used my Blender… Read more »

WWYS #108 // Dragonfly Dreams  Time for another challenge post and this week I’m participating in What Will You Stamp’s Challenge #108 using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. I just love this set. It’s so versatile and who doesn’t like Dragonflies?  Now, I’ve tried a new technique today called Reinker Rainbow and I’ll have a video on how to do it tomorrow. I’ve used one of the pieces I made for a background for today’s card. The Dragonfly is cut… Read more »

Whoo hoo I’m back participating in this wonderful challenge blog again this week. I love challenges as they encourage you to work with stamp sets you may not have used for a while and sometimes they even get you out of your comfort zone. This is a great stamp set and so I’m glad it’s the WWYS Challenge #100 // Number of Years. I decided to team my card with the gorgeous 3/8: Metallic Ribbon from the Combo Pack in the… Read more »

Today I decided to participate in the WWYS Challenge #99 Sunshine Sayings challenge. It’s a great stamp set, which I have in clear mount. It has lots of sentiments and allows you to ‘play’ with the images to create different effects. There’s a pack of Sunshine Wishes Thinlit Dies which co-ordinates with the set and you can buy them as a bundle and save 10%. I had lots of fun creating this card and used a colour I don’t tend to use… Read more »

I shared a card yesterday and decided to make another using different colours. Here’s my card today: I’ve used Elegant Eggplant, Smoky Slate and Silver Glimmer Paper along with Whisper White.I’ve added a rhinestone to the centre of the stars. The background… Read more »

Saturday often means Challenge Day and today I’m participating in the WWYS Challenge #78 Sweet Cupcake Challenge. I was excited when I saw this challenge as I have the stamp set. However, it’s one which hasn’t seen any ink yet. It did today after the power was turned back on. The local electricity people were upgrading something and turned the power off at 9 am mid load of washing, but I did have coffee in hand. Now back to the card.  … Read more »

It’s Saturday and time for my blog post featuring a Challenge. This week it’s for the WWYS Challenge #73 Jar of Love Blog. I haven’t used this stamp set before so it was lovely to use a new set from the 2016 – 2017 Annual Catalogue. Here’s my card: I cut the inside of the jar out with Paper Snips (it was easy to do) and added Vellum to the back of the jar so you could still see some of the… Read more »

WWYS Challenge #71 // Falling Flowers. Isn’t this a lovely stamp set? You can bundle it with May Flowers Framelit Dies as a gorgeous bundle. I have done some Emboss Resist and watercolour today for this card. I really enjoyed making this card with Pear Pizzazz, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum on Shimmery White card. The Magnetic Platform ensures the dies stay in place while cutting, however one of my pieces of card was warped because of the water… Read more »
