Oceans of Love

We're joining forces with Dies to Die For for our 5th birthday celebrations at In The Pink Challenge with an Anything Goes challenge.  I've used some cute little mermaids and one of the sentiments from the same set.  The stamps are available from Dies to Die For.

Nine Lives

This is another cutie from the MFT Cool Cat Stamp Set.  I've masked the stamps to create a little pile of cushions for the kitty to sit on and the sentiment is from the same set.

Congrats

I've been in quite a CAS mood lately, but today's card is all about the embellishments! 
We're wanting to know what your favourite embellies are at 
As You Like It Challenge this week, and I couldn't decide between pearls (which I add to almost everything), my beloved satin ribbons (which I have in a whole rainbow of colours) or flowers (again lots of colours and sizes).  Since I couldn't decide, I opted for all three plus a few die cuts for good measure!


I much prefer pearls to gemstone because i like the sheen rather than the bling, and they're so easy to add without overpowering an image. I also love my double bows in a satin ribbon to match the colours on my card. When it comes to the flowers, I like adding them in little rows of 3 or 5 around the outside of my image panel with the little green stem spirals from curling them around my paintbrush handle.

From Meow to You

Things don't come much more CAS than today's card featuring an image from MFT's Cool Cat Stamp Set.  

Those of you who have been adopted as servants to a kitty may recognise this pose which is very well practised by my own furry feline disposal unit.

Robin Red Breast

I know it's August and this is a Christmas card, but I'm showcasing another of the recent release from Lili of the Valley today. This one's called Christmas Robin.  I made a bit of a mistake stamping a sentiment onto the green papers, which looked awful, so I ended up covering it up with a poinsettia and stamping a different sentiment onto the image panel instead.

You can leave your hat on!

Today's image is from the newly released festive set from Lili of the Valley called Christmas Snowman.  I love the Lili mice and this one's no exception as he's leaning to perch the hat on his fun snowman friend.

I'm usually a bit of an OCD freak with it comes to neat lines - I can't seem to bring myself to tear papers for a vintage look or place my panels at quirky angles (at least not on purpose!) - so I braved some doodling and I actually surprised myself because I quite liked the result.  It certainly seemed to frame the image quite well but I may need to lie down in a dark room to recover!

Make a Monster Wish

I've been playing with a couple of my monster images from Gerda Steiner.  That cake looks a little on the small size to me though! It's more like a muffin!  :0)

Christmouse Pudding

I'm rather in love with these sweet meecies from the new release at Lili of the Valley.  I think I will be using this image a fair bit as they're simply adorable! I hope you like it too. :0)

Daffy

As soon as I saw this little lady, I loved her sassy pose. Isn't she just FABULOUS!  I imagine her saying 'taa-daa!' :0)  Even her little shoes are daffodils. I've teamed her with a sentiment from another Stamping Bella image, Brittany the Birthday Girl, both from Dies to Die For.

Summer Holidays

I used this Tilda image a fortnight ago but was so uninspired by the yellow (it's not my favourite colour by a long shot) that I really didn't like my finished project.  To rejuvenate my feelings for this image, I've had another attempt at a card using her which is more matched to my usual style.  She's in much warmer reds and her ice cream is now chocolate (mmm, my favourite!).  The papers are also some that I've been saving for a while (almost too nice to use) so I'm much happier with this version.  

She's perfect for the Summer Fun theme at Squirrel's Random Challenge which starts today so please pop over to see the samples by my fabulously talented teamies and to enter your own Summer themed creation. I look forward to seeing your projects.






Card Recipe:

  • Tilda with Dripping Ice Cream
  • Versafine Ink Pad
  • Watercoloured with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers
  • The Langton Watercolour paper
  • Tim Holtz Stitched Oval nesting die
  • Sue Wilson Nasturtium Die set
  • 15mm Satin Ribbon
  • 3mm flat backed pearls
