Favourites of 2017

We've reached the end of another crafty year. 
In terms of my style, not much has changed since last year. 

I still love my blues and greens


And I still love a rainbow






I still love flowers and leaves











 I still love using background stamps





 And I still love using stencils and masks


And this year, I have fallen in love with my Zig clean color real brush markers!

 I always love making Christmas cards










And some cards I like just because!


Thanks for your kind comments and support and, as always, thanks for visiting :)

Guest Designer Week 4

Hello! I'm excited today to be playing along one more time with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge as a guest designer!

The challenge this week is Anything Goes, and we're playing with products from Lawn Fawn!

My cousin, Julie and her husband, Nick, are expecting their first baby in the new year, so I made this card for them.
I used the Small Stitched Circles Stackables dies to create the windows, then added Distress Oxide blending behind the windows. I stamped, die cut and coloured the little animals from Lawn Fawn's "Hello Baby" with the matching dies.

Happy birthday flowers

I made this birthday card for my sister, whose birthday was last month.
I used the Floral Fantasy background stamp from My Favorite things, white embossed onto watercolour paper, then coloured with Zig clean color real brush markers and a spray of water. I cut the panel in half on an angle and attached it to a white card base with a strip of glitter paper and a sentiment from Wplus9.

Using up more Christmassy leftovers

I had a piece of Yupo with alcohol ink on it from a card I made in November - I couldn't let it go to waste - so I made a card with the opposite layout to the first one!
I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted along with a strip of gold cardstock and some Hero Arts sequins.

Congratulations

My aunt and uncle recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, and two friends of my parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, so I made two copies of this card:


Can you see?  NO STAMPS. NO INK. Just die cuts. (I must be unwell!) 

I used a stitched rectangle from Lil' Inkers, the heart is from Hero Arts, and the congratulations is from Avery Elle.

Thanks for visiting :)

1 design, 4 colours

I  made a bunch of Christmas cards back in November in four different colour schemes: I used Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio.

 I'm still not sure which one is my favourite - which is yours?
