Christmas in March a bit late

I am still working on my March Christmas cards for CCCMar19 at Splitcoaststampers. Our March theme is Bundle up!! It’s cold outside! Let’s see mittens, warmth, etc.!
Some of my cards have not met the brief but I think these 3 do. 

The first card uses a digital image from Connie Fong

The following cards both use LOTV images which are available as stamps or digis. 

All the cards were coloured with Copics and use papers, dies and punches from my stash.

Farewell Ryan

Our nephew has flown to Spain today for a time, and this was the card I made him to wish him safe travels.

The image is from Sassy Cheryl and is called A Wing and a Prayer. Hopefully the flight was not that and he has arrived safely. I coloured it with Copics and created a message on the PC. I sponged the clouds in the background with Memento ink.

Thanks for looking

Guest Designer for Splitcoaststamper Color Challenge - Last Week

My final week as a guest designer for the colour challenge at Splitcoaststampers.

This week our colors are:


which translates into,


AND for dessert, a Touch of LACE!

I skipped the dessert but I have 3 cards to share. The first two with alcohol inks and the alcohol lift ink and then the last one stamped and coloured with Copics. I used an inked embossing folding on the background of the first one.

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the challenges at Splitcoaststampers

Guest Designer for Splitcoaststamper Color Challenge - Week 3

Tuesday was a busy day and the rest of the week has been the same. Today, I remembered I hadn't posted here the cards made for this week's colour challenge at Splitcoaststampers.

I actually made two cards using the colours (Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Calypso Coral) as I wasn't sure the first one was a great example, but it seems to have been quite popular.

2nd Card

Guest Designer for Splitcoaststamper Color Challenge - Week 2

My 2nd week with the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge and I went for a colourful and slightly crazy card using a flower stamp from Chocolate Baroque.

I chose to incorporate the grey with just the ink I stamped it and used the other colours to the max.

This weeks colours are Granite, Mango and Razzleberry.

Hope you find time to play along

Guest Designer for Splitcoaststamper Color Challenge

For the remainder of January I get to be a guest designer for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge.

You can find this weeks challenge here

As the colours this week are silver, powder pink and red and the dessert option is hearts I decided it would be a good time to make a valentine card. My image is a digital one from Graciellie Designs and my valentine sentiment is from Power Poppy. 

Thanks for looking and have a great week

1st 2019 Christmas Card

I combined a few challenges and made my first 2019 Christmas card.

I used CC720 this week's colour challenge, TLC723 this week's technique challenge to stamp with an embossing folder and CCC19Jan to add some bling to our January Christmas cards - pearlescent paper and gems!

Happy New Year and here's to a healthy and creative one.
