Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's CAS week and Laurie has chosen a great theme for us: I played around with a couple of sets, but in the end decided to go with florals. I chose a digital image (trying to remember where I got it!). I printed the image out onto X-Press IT paper and colored it using my Copic Markers, finishing up with a little pencil. I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Label Love onto a piece of Neenah Solar White and added a... Read more →


Hi Everyone Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's color week: Now,, I have to be honest... these colors scared me! They are such bright colors - and I didn't have two of them in my stash! So, I had to make do. I had this image in my head using two old SU favorites - Beautiful You and Mediterranean Moments. I stamped out the lady onto Neenah Solar White card stock and then again onto two different pieces of old SU DSP that I had. I then fussy cut them all... Read more →


HI Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Toni's turn to host our Addicted to CAS Challenge and this is her code word: Once I saw the challenge, I immediately knew that I wanted to use the Hero Arts Safari set that was first released as a monthly kit - I think back in 2017.

He loved them so much that... Read more →


Hi Everyone Happy Monday. I made a card for the challenge across at Time Out - I loved the idea of the playful theme: I decided to have a little fun with a Penny Black set called Joyful Holidays. I stamped the deer - carrying an envelope - onto Neenah Solar White card stock and colored it with my Prismas. I then took the British postbox stamp from the same set and added that to the left of the deer. I decided not to color the post box because the bright red box would have completely pulled the eye away... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week - and it's theme week. I really wanted to use a quote that is in the Casual Fridays Big Treble set. It really is a great sentiment. Originally I was going to do a very clean and simple card and not put anything on the card other than the sentiment. However, I went through my paper stash and found this gorgeous piece of paper. It was originally 6x6, so I had to do some manipulation of the cutting to get it to fit my 4.25... Read more →
