Try Stampin' sketch #142

Hi lovelies,

Today I am on time & have access to the internet (dh & family used up all our time last week).  So here is the latest sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesdays & my card.

The twist this week is to use orange.  For those of you that know me, know I don't do orange (very well).  Although I have been getting better at using it of late.  I really love this gorgeous sketch.  As it can be used for lots of different cards & themes.  Today I chose to make a "girly" card just because I had this image sitting on my desk with only her hair coloured in.  So I went with the teal/orange scheme &  put this card together.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Please stop by Try Stampin' to see what else the lovely DT members have come up with.  Happy crafting every one.

Wise old owls(s)

Hi Lovelies,

Today I have a share & a sneaky peek.  Firstly the sneaky Peek of my card I made for Die Cut Diva's latest challenge that can be found here.

I hope that you can pop over & check out all our entries & Divas' creations, they are amazing.

Now onto my share card.  I made it up in about 10 minutes the other day.

I brought some red felt the other day to try with my Die-namic rose dies.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  I used some leftover chicken wire die off cut just  for something different.  The clouds are washi tape that I matched up to make a wider strip.

Happy crafting every one

Try Stampin' on Tuesdays

Hi Lovelies,

I am back to being a DT member of Try Stampin' on Tuesdays again (I'm so happy about that!).  After a few months break I'm finally able to give Try Stampin' the time it deserves from me.  So here is the sketch -

What a fantastic sketch!  I love it.  Mind you I decided to flip it as the stamp I wanted to use went the other way.  I also used the theme "To give thanks" as well on this card.  

I used pp as my base & then clear embossed over it with one of my fav Hero Arts stamps.  Then applied some Distress inks.  I really like this effect, as it just gives the card some more interest.  

I hope you can join us this week & play along.  Don't forget to pop over to the TSOT blog & leave my fellow DT members some love.  Happy crafting everyone.

Colours of Autumn - Die Cut Divas

Hi Lovelies,

The gorgeous Hannah is our Diva of the month over at Die Cut Divas.  I am really enjoying this month's challenge & I am loving the entries so far.  

Today Hannah has provided us with a colour scheme to help get our creative juices flowing.  

I was so inspired I just had to make up a card to share with you all.  I've used every colour bar red!  How could I forget red.  What a great excuse to make another card ;P. Anyhoo here is my card inspired by the colours.

I used Distress inks to colour my "panel" then ran each side through my cuttlebug with a honeycomb embossing folder.  I then die cut a scrap of white c/s with my Die-namics Chicken wire Die.  Cutting out extra bits before inking it up.  I fussy cut around the stamped images before sticking them down.  Once again I was also inspired by some cards from Pinterest.  If you want you can check out my cards boards here, here, here & here.

Please pop over to Die Cut Divas to see what else the other Divas have created.  Happy crafting everyone.
