Four Feathers!

After making my card for the Just Add Ink challenge, l decided, while l  had everything out still, l would have a play with a pink and gold version.
I stamped the feather images onto Vellum using Encore Gold ink and a couple onto the panel, using Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink in various strengths.
I love how well the brushed gold cardstock matches the Encore gold ink, both have a softer matt look.

Little Letters Love!

Hey there!....I've been having another play with the partial die cutting technique and thought it would be cute in a "Love & Heart" theme.
I used Naturals White cardstock, with Crumbcake and Champagne Shimmer Paper. I also created a matching gift box, using the Curvy Keepsake die and the heart framelits with some window sheet.

Just Add Ink #236....Inspiration!

Happy Friday peeps!...It's Just Add Ink  challenge time and this week we have some inspiration of the "Feathery" kind...
These colours are so vibrant and pretty and teamed with a hint of gold, they really are lovely together.
Initially l had intended using the gorgeous "Perfect Peacock" stamp, but then l totally went off in a different direction..:0)
I'm enjoying adding Washi to my cards of late and l had colours that worked with the inspiration, plus l wanted to play with my "Four Feathers" bundle again, so it kind of evolved from there.

Colourful Four Feathers!

Colourful is certainly an understatement for this one. I was in the mood for colours and patterns and this was the result. 
I don't love it, but then again I'm sharing, so l guess l don't dislike it either..:0)
It started with wanting to have a play with the "Four Feathers" dies and dsp and l needed a card with a younger appeal...It's kinda bright & fun!

Festival of Trees!

Hey there!...I'm back to share the 3rd card in the "Black/Vanilla" combo. This one uses the very cute "Festival of Trees" bundle.
I came across This stunning card from Georgeann Manning and just had to case..:0) It's a perfect fit for the colours I've been using for Christmas. I added some Washi Tape, but pretty much cased her gorgeous card design, as is.

Flower Shop Garden Wall.....

Happy Sunday to you!....My project for today, is a birthday card l made for a sweet friend that was celebrating her "60th" Birthday.....
I wanted to create something a little more detailed than my normal and incorporate some blue tones.
I started with a cardbase, cut on a diagonal, using the length of a piece of A4 cardstock. The measurements l used are 5-1/2" at the top & 3-1/2" at the bottom.
I scored the A4 length @ 3-7/8" & 7-3/4" to create even panels. I used the current Hardwood background stamp on all but the inner center panel....You can see in the pics below that I've decorated both sides, as you need to do that for when it's folded.
The colours l used are Calypso Coral-Crisp Cantaloupe-Crumbcake-Wild Wasabi & Lost Lagoon. I've coloured the rhinestones with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities.

Just Add Ink #235...Colour!

Whoohoo!...Friday has arrived..:0) And that means it's Just Add Ink challenge time. Kim has provided us with a beautiful colour palette this week, it's so pretty!
I normally wouldn't have thought to put these colours together, but, l love them and will definitely use them again.
I really wanted to keep this one soft, so l stamped off the first (middle) layer of Strawberry Slush and the base layer of Soft Sky and think it worked pretty well to get the look l was after.
Don't forget to pop over and check out the design team samples....Lot's of inspiration using these lovely colours.

Jingle # 2....

A short & sweet post from me today and another simple Christmas card...It uses the "Little Letters" positive diecuts leftover from Mondays Jingle card.
I used a variety of current and retired SU star punches and Silver foil cardstock, to create the embellishments and some of last years DSP stack that l'd been hoarding..:0)
