Got another one-layer card for you, this time a slimline one ...


I used Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Weathered Wood Distress Oxides in combination with my Triangles Flexi-Template for the background to which I added a few water splatters. The rose and sentiment are simply stamped.

Dydd Santes Dwynwen Hapus

Hi Friends!

Happy St Dwynwen's Day! As you've probably guessed by now, I really love Wales and have started to learn Welsh.

During one of my more recent lessons I came across St Dwynwen's Day (Dydd Santes Dwynwen), a day dedicated to the Welsh parton saint of love. I looked up her story, decided to celebrate it this year and surprise my hubby.

This is the card I made ...


I used the Originally Organic Additions stamp and die set by Uniko for my heart shaped wreath. A little bit of script (Large Background French Script also by Uniko) in the background, some sequins and my hand written sentiment finished my card off.

That's it from me for now. Wishing you a lovely day!

AAA Cards Challenge Guest Designer

Hi Crafty Friends!

I've been asked to guest design over at AAA Cards Challenge for their CAS Game #182 which starts today. Here is my project ...


As you can see from the graphic below, the request is fro a one-layer card with the optional twist of silhouettes. My card includes both.



To keep with the CAS look, I decided to align the Triangles Flexi-Template as shown in the photo below. This would allow me to add colour for the background while at the same time highlighting the white space and contributing to a bright and airy feel.

 

I finished off with a silhouette and sentiment by Uniko.


Fancy playing along at the AAA Cards Challenge, pop over to their blog to check out the fabulous projects their team created and to link up your one-layer card too.

Here is what I used in my card:

- Stamp sets: Just Because for the silhouette and Pure Florals: Peony for the sentiment by Uniko
Trinagles Flexi-Template, MonikaSkinner Designs by STAMPlorations {link is an affiliate link}
- Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant inks by Sampin'Up!

That's it from me for today. Wishing you a lovely Sunday!
hugs
Monika ❤

Cheeky Birthday Card

Hi Friends!

Ooops, this posted without me finishing the post, if you get what I mean. My sincere apologies.

Today I got a little birthday card with a punchy sentiment. Here it is ...



The stamps I used were from this month's Monthly Make Box by Crafty Roo Designs. Keeping it short and sweet as it was just a little bit of stamping with Aurore, Miel and Cire Izink Dye inks that brought my card together. The sentiment was stamped with black Versafine.

Back tomorrow with a little CAS make. See you then.
hugs
Monika 💕

Just Because ...

Hi Friends!

Sharing another card today made with stamps from December's Monthly Make Box by Crafty Roo Designs ...



I used Izink inks for both the watercolour effect background stamping and for watercolouring the flower.

Keeping it short and sweet again. Wishing you a lovely day!
