I wanted to get the chance to play along with Less Is More this week where the challenge is to use a silhouette and I have just managed to get a card made. 

I created a bit of an inky background for the Penny Black die cut bird and added a sentiment from Stamplorations.

I will also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes.

I can't stay and chat today but hope to be back again soon :)

Crystal Clear


Finally I have had the chance to make a card and thought I would share it with you :)  I was inspired by this week's cue card at CASology - Clear.  I immediately thought of crystal clear which caused me to use my new MFT diamond die:

I die cut the diamond out of silver glitter paper and cut a window out of white card to create my shaker.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle and is silver embossed.  A few strips of silver glitter tape at the top and bottom of the card add some extra bling!

I hope you like my simple shaker :)

Thanks for stopping by!

A Burst of Colour


I am just popping in with a few cards that I made over the Christmas break playing with the colour bursts that I was given as a gift.  I used them with a few of my lovely Clarity stencils and was pleased with the vibrant results:

This first card features one of Clarity's word chain words embossed in white on black and the second has a sentiment from Stamplorations.

I had held off getting the colour bursts for ages because I thought they would be too messy and unpredictable but they are a lot of fun!  Maybe my new year's card making resolution should be to loosen up a little :)
I shall link up at Clarity's Challenge which is Say It With Flowers - I hope the stencil is classed as flowers!  I will also play along with Simon's Wednesday Challenge for using my new colour bursts and at Simon's Monday's Challenge which is also Something New.  Finally I will also link up at Word Art Wednesday which is Anything Goes.
Thank you for stopping by - I appreciate your visits!

Simple and Neutral


A very quick post today with a card that I have made using Altenew's Lacy Scrolls.  This subdued card works for Less Is More's current challenge to use neutral tones and CASology's cue card which is Simple:


I simply stamped the lovely images in dark and light grey at the top of the card and attached a strip of grey cardstock.  I am hoping not to have to use this card any time soon but it is worth having one prepared.

As these stamps are new to me I shall also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is Something New.

Sorry it is a quickie - must dash!

Welcome to my first post of 2016 and I am delighted to be playing along as guest designer at Happy Little Stampers first Christmas Challenge of the year :)  Are you ready to get started on your Christmas cards?! 

The theme for the challenge is Jingle:

I decided to use a white and gold colour scheme and one of my favourite sentiments from Uniko.  The sentiment is embossed in gold and I die cut two bells from Lil Inkers in mirri and white card stock and tied them together with some gold twine.  It is a simple, CAS card.

Do head over to the Happy Little Stampers Blog where the DT will have lots more fabulous inspiration to get you started!

Thanks for stopping by,
