Inspired by Little Things

Hi All

I hope your week goes well.

Today I am here with a card I made that was inspired by the photo this week at Inspired by Little Things-the photo captured my eye immediately. Here is what I created from all the little things that inspired me:

Here is the photo:

I was inspired by so many little things:

-the chalk board as the focus
-the love ornament
-the red glitter
-the white background
-the all over colour scheme

I do love photo challenges but think this is the first time I have played in this one-must add it to my list.

Have fun this week x

Dare To Be Fabulous!

I hope your weekend is going well,

I have been not so well over the last week and been staying in but it has helped me get some crafty projects in.

My card today dares you to be Fabulous...I know you all are!

I wanted to play along with the 'Everything Turns Gold' challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. I was inspired by Channin's card here. The purple and gold attracted my eye immediately. No surprise there! I also wanted to have another play with the fab sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch-

These stamps are super old from PTI and I only came across them when I was looking for another stamp. Then 'ping' the idea arrived. The Mendhi was heat embossed in gold and then the sentiment heat embossed in white and popped up. I know this card looks super CAS but it took me ages to decide what card base to use and what colour enamel dots. I messed about for ages until I was happy with the look.
 This will be entered into:

Enjoy the rest of your day x

Inkspirational #126

A very Happy Weekend to you all,

Our first challenge at Inkspirational starts today. We have a word prompt for you:


I went with the obvious fluttering of the wings but I am sure you can think of many other ways to interpret this word:

I loved making this card-the colours, off the edge image, big, bold sentiment and my fav enamel dots.

Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Gina. Her blog is so very creative, take a look here

Especially for You

Hello There,

I love the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch

Here is what I came up with:

Had one of those light bulb moments and knew the stamp I wanted to use immediately. That was the easy bit but I wasn't sure what colours to use. I knew I didn't want to make a spring coloured card. I wanted to go more dramatic and Cupcake inspirations helped me out here with the black, silver and white combo.

The flower (from Visable Images) is stamped with silver delicata ink and covered with WOS which IRL looks lovely and shimmery. Then I heat embossed the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers in white and popped it up on foam pads for dimension. A few enamel gems to finish. I really like this dramatic look and I had a lot of fun making this.

I will also enter it into the CAS challenge at STAMPlorations-using the silver twist.

Have a fun day and hope you all have a good weekend.

Happy Little Stampers January CAS Challenge

Hello All

Today is my first post as a Design Team Member Happy Little Stampers.  I am so excited to be on their 'Clean and Simple' team. This month our challenge is to create and 'CAS' card using a stencil.

Here is my card:

I have used a stamp from the Happy Little Stampers Butterfly Birthday set. I heat embossed it on vellum and then fussy cut it out. I used a star stencil and distress ink, just lightly behind the butterfly. The sentiment is from the same set. These enamel dots are also from Accessories shop at Happy Little Stampers

The winner of this challenge will get $15 discount at the store.

I am very much looking forward to seeing your cards but before you start creating take a look at what the DT have made to inspire you here

Enjoy x
