Happy Sunday! It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and its Tic-Tac-Toe week! Here's Ann's board: I also played along with the new Just Add Ink challenge - which is a masculine challenge: For my card, I decided to use some paper from the World of Good Memories and More pack. For my Tic-Tac-Toe - I went with the right hand side vertical - patterned paper, dots and wood. I choose a piece of wood paper from the In Good Taste DSP pack and paired that with two journal sized cards from World... Read more →

Happy Saturday! I have another card made using the Beauty Within set from Altenew. My last cards made with this set all featured the coloring stencils. This time, I went old-school and colored the flower with Copic markers. I was inspired by the sketch across at casethissketch this week. I stamped and colored the flower and leaf. I fussy cut them because I didn't want white edges from the die-cuts. That's because I colored behind the focal elements and the white border really would have popped too much. I added the script stamp from the Very Versailles set on top... Read more →

Happy Wednesday! It's hump day and we are coasting down to the weekend :-) I have a card for you tonight made using the sketch across at CasethisSketch and the theme from JustUsGirls.

So, i started with that and then got to work on my coffee cup. I had a... Read more →

Happy Tuesday. I have another card using the Altenew Beauty Within set for you today. I made this card inspired by the colors across at Just Add Ink. I didn't have the exact colors, but got as close as I could. This card really needed re-photographing as my new lighting set up is showing a little too warm and I can't quite get it right. So, the card is really bright white, and the colors not quite as insipid! I couldn't rephotograph it, as the card is already in the mail! Here are the colors from Just Add Ink: I... Read more →

Happy Sunday. Again :-) If you are looking for my Paper Players post - you can find it here. I created a card using a set from Altenew called Beauty Within. I haven't purchased anything from Altenew in quite a long time, but I fell in love with this set, especially as it comes with stencils for coloring. I love it, but was a little frustrated that they didn't provide stencils for all three flowers, just two! I love the sketch across at Freshly Made this week - it's really unusual. Cecile did say that we didn't have to use... Read more →
