Celebrate Amazing You!

This week my featured stamp set is another Tier 1 Sale-a-Bration set Amazing You, plus the corresponding Tier 2 Thinlet set Celebrate You. Both are fabulous on their own or used together.

For this card I used one of the backgrounds I’ve made with the Brusho Crystal Colours available in the Occasions Catalog along with the couple of stamps from the Amazing You stamp Set.

The sketch I used for this card is that latest one from Freshly Made Sketches – Freshly Made Sketches 319.

Hope you’re all enjoying both the new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs as much as I certainly am.

Just when I thought I had my Studio all set-up, now I need to find more space for even more stamp sets… WAY MORE then I’d planned!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Hello Carnival Swirls (FMS307)

Rearranging my “stash” is the equivalent of buying new stuff. Product that has inadvertently been pushed to the back is suddenly front and centre once again.

Such was the case with this Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes and Carousels DSP. It might be sooo last season but I love that grunge-feel it has about it as you can see below.

The Swirly Scribbles Die-Cuts are currently a favourite of mine. In this instance I’ve covered the die-cut with Crystal Effect to give it some depth and character. Plus I finally used the SAB2017 Delicate Details Stamp Set. Seriously, it’s just like having new stuff!

This card was created for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #307. I’m so, so grateful for the wonderful “kick-starts” they give me each week. This is their current sketch.

Slowly but surely I’m getting my groove back. This is fortunate since we are now in October – it’s almost Christmas! Have you all the supplies you need for your Christmas creations yet?

Golden Lighthouse Ray (SIP Challenge #111)

What’s that saying? Plan your work then work your plan. Yeah sure. Whoever said that obviously never experienced a summer-staycation where all sense of time is lost!

This week’s challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper is… BEACH! Initially I wasn’t going to partake as I have no beachy stamps. Then as I was clearing my workbench I saw “High Tide” and thought, why not! Here is my card.

Please click on the link above if you’d like to join in with the weekly challenges or to simply see all the wonderful interpretations there are for each challenge.

Unbelievably, here it is Sunday and I’ve done BOTH of the new card challenges I’ve found this last week on the same day, today, instead of paced out during the week as planned. Dang it!

The silver-lining is of course is that today I’ve made two cards – that’s twice as many as last week so I’m more than happy, lol!

For All Things

A lovely stamp set if you celebrate Fall is the For All Things Stamp Set. I’ve seen some wild and wonderful things done with the set but when I looked at it today all I saw was clean and crisp.

For my first of my 2-4-Tuesday cards I went with tones of brown with Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede then some Always Artichoke just to break things up. All very Fall-like!

Grateful for You - Crumb Cake _ JIF

For the second card I really wanted to introduce some Blackberry Bliss into the card as it feel like FOREVER since I’ve used this color. The same with using the Gold Foil Paper as a border, I honestly can’t remember the last time I did this.

Thus giving me the perfect opportunity to try out one of the beautiful Gold Basic Metal Buttons from the Holiday Catalog. Which, as you can see, works very well with the 1/8″ Gold Ribbon!
