Thanks

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps by our very own Deepti under her label 'Dee's Artsy Impressions'.

I decided to work with the Smile and the Friends And Flowers stamp sets with a little help from the Square City ARTplorations Stencil and the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies to create a floral CAS card. Here it is ...


The background is one from my 'Brushos through stencil over inked background' experiment. I simply die-cut it to size, added some splatters and  finished off with a sentiment and fuzzy cut Calla Lily.



As mentioned earlier, this week we are showcasing stamps designed by Deepti under her label 'Dee's Artsy Impressions'. All her sets will be reduced by 10% apart from the Smile set I used in my card which will be 20% off.

Of course Shery will still draw a winner at random from all the comments left on this month's Inspiration Posts over on the STAMPlorations Blog. Pop over to see what my teamies created and to leave a comment for your entry into their prize draw.

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week!

Embossing With A Twist

Hello Crafty Friends!

I've been invited to join as Guest Designer over at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges for their Emboss It Challenge. I decided to make a little tag, here it is:


The bubbles in the background were dry embossed using a die-cut shape and the appropriate Grand Calibur sandwich, the flower is heat embossed using WOW and Stampin'Up! embossing powders.


The rest is just a bit of splattering with a die-cut sentiment, circles, sequins and a length of ribbon.

If you fancy a bit of embossing, pop over to the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges Blog to join the fun.


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

Dance Like No One Is Watching

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps by Becca under her label 'Big Grins By Becca Cruger'.

I decided to work with the Dino Things and Strong Women sets to create this little chirpy card ...


I tried to create the impression of little dino being in the limelight with celebratory confetti raining down.


As mentioned earlier, this week we are showcasing stamps designed by Becca under her label 'Big Grins By Becca Cruger'. All her sets will be reduced by 10% apart from the ... well I didn't quite know which one at the time of writing this post and I might not have had time to update it ... anyway one or two of Becca's sets will be 20% off.

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps by our very own Shirley under her label 'The Bee's Knees'.

I decided to work with the Rosebuds to create a watercolour CAS card with a slight country feel. Here it is ...


This was very straight forward, stamping, watercolouring and finishing off with a gingham ribbon bow for the country feel.
