Birthday Candles

Plenty of candles ... with a masculine touch.

Here's the angle to catch the gold embossing ...

Framed Robin 2

Here is my second framed Robin (no 1 is here).

This time I made a vertical column of the embossing paste through the tiny dot stencil leaving room for the sentiment. I used the smaller deckle frame.

... Just Add Ink : Just add a technique.  I used embossing paste.

... The Paper Players : Sketch.  I hope it's ok that I turned it vertical.

... AAA Cards : Max white space + optional geometric. Hope the rectangle frame counts.

Hakuna Matata

I'm so lucky to be in my happy place ... Kwa Maritane in the Pilansberg Nature Reserve!

Oh the African Sky! A storm approaching ...

Close encounters ... beautiful ... and intimidating when they come close! Had a big momma within 2 meters of our car!

Then this morning we had a herd visit at the water hole in front of the hide.

Here's my card ...

Noël Dove

I have the lovely dove stamp in the A Blessed Christmas set from Paper Smooches ... and now I have the die that is based on the same stamp, but is larger. 

Wonderful design for CAS cards!

And you get two for one by using the inside cuts. I added a drop of white enamel accents to make the eye, and drew a stem for the leaves.

Peeking Rainbow

Taking a stroll down memory lane with folded corners and  buttons... and added the MFT rainbow die cut which is an oldie, but still never been used by me!

Framed Robin 1

When I made the "Cutest Trio" card, I stamped a second set of robins, and coloured them the same way.

Here is the first of my framed robin series ...

I've just received my first pot of Altenew white embossing paste and had to try it out.  I love it.  So smooth! So white!

Winter Flowers

Are you ready for a new challenge?

CASology starts a new one today! The cue word is FOG.

This certainly was a challenge for me.  But then the brain fog eased and I remembered that Simon Says Stamp has FOG cardstock.  Then I thought of vellum ... it has a foggy look, doesn't it?!

So here's my card. I coloured parts of the leaves and petals with Copics.

I wonder where this challenge will take you?

You have 3 weeks to enter this challenge ... the deadline is Monday November 4th at 9:00am CDT.

Come drift on over and check on the creations of the design team and be inspired. Looking forward to seeing your take on the cue word.

Happy Thoughts

I keep forgetting to use stencils - but I still buy them!

So here's the lovely NBUS Uniko Wonky Stripes stencil paired with Altenew's Handpicked Bouquet in 2 colour combinations.

First with a traditional pink.  Love the flow of this flower.

Added some paint splatters.

My second colour combo is a soft lavender. This time I did doodle dots which are more subtle and controllable!!

Bright Rainbow flowers

Inspired both by Angelica and the CAS(e) This Sketch.

I chose bright colours and used the different silhouette flowers in my stash. Added matching sequins along the way.

I loved the soft delicate feel to Leah's card but I didn't have her stamps.  Worked with what I have in my stash.

A close-up of the embossed background.  Love the subtle look.
