Purple 18th

Hello there. The Festive Friday Challenge is on once again and this time I have remembered to post.

This was a card that I had to whip up near enough on the spot as my son wanted a card for his friend. His friend's favourite colour is purple so I tried to incorporate as much of it as I could. I used oxides for inking and stamping. The stamps are mostly from Andy Skinner sets and some others from magazine freebies.
The number is 3 die-cuts stacked together. The top ones are inked and went over with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents on top.

So now it is over to you to join us over at the Festive Friday Challenge. See you on the other side, Theresa xx.

Mother's day card

Hello again. It is time for another Festive Fridays Challenge over at the Outlawz. As usual, I'm late to the parade as the challenge went out on Friday 30th.

Without further ado let me get to today's offering. This is the card I made for my mum on Mother's day. I used Altenew rose stamps and Altenew ink to stamp the flowers and then using large dies, I die cut the word Mama out of the card. I die cut Mama 2 more times and stacked the letters up to give them height. I matted the card and then put the letters in their relevant spaces. I stamped the sentiment underneath and finished off with some sequins.

So now it is over to you. There are a number of themes that you can find on the blog. See you on the other side, Hugs Theresa xx

Special birthday

Hello there. I know it's been a while since my last post. Today starts another Festive Fridays Challenge over at the Outlawz.
It was my turn to choose the themes and one of them was a Special birthday.

I decided to go with this card that my son asked me to make for one of his friends using her favourite colours. It is a simple card made by using an Allandcreate stencil and distress oxides.

The rest is die cuts, sequins and glossy accents. I used the same stencil and inks to decorate the envelope to match. I made 2 similar cards so the envelope is from the other one I think as the colours are darker 😅.
So why don't you join us over at FFC on Outlawz? Take care, crafty hugs, Theresa xx

Arum lilies

Hello, my friends and welcome back to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. I am late once again but this time in my defence my back was playing up so I only finished the card this morning before I went to work. Once back I had to cook tea for my boys before I could get to posting anything.
Anyway enough of that. This week we are sponsored by Beccy's place and I chose to work with these beautiful Arum lilies.

I printed the flowers on smooth card and coloured them using spectrum noir alcohol markers. The sentiment is from Altenew stamps called sentiments 2. and the sequins are also by Altenew. 
So now it is over to you. See you on the other side, stay safe Theresa xx

gone fishing

So once again I am late with my posting. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge.
This week our sponsor is Hetty Clare.

I chose to work with this adorable image called Gone fishing. I enjoyed colouring it in with promarkers and then attached it on the inside of the card creating a window on the front to peep through.

So now it is over to you. See you on the other side and stay safe, Theresa xx
