Hello there my crafty friends. You must be wondering what is going on. Blogged twice in as many weeks!!! Well, it so happens that over at TTCRD it was Team B's turn again to offer inspiration for this week.

Our sponsor this time are Gecko Galz Studio. I picked the image to work with this time and I went for a set of silhouettes called Charming silhouette stamps

This is a great set and really worth having as it caters for so many occasions. I really was inspired by it and went to town creating cards. I have 2 more in the making...

I printed the images on printable acetate and so the images here are flipped horizontally. I then used distress oxide inks to colour them from the back and assembled them in the ways shown below.

This card is different in that it is a shaker card. So I did not colour the image but instead put patterned paper behind the aperture. I then put some sequins in for the shaker element.

The sentiments have all been created in the same way. I die cut each sentiment 3 times and stacked them together so they sat proud on the card. I then went over them with a clear Wink of Stella pen and after sticking them down I added glossy accents for the added dimension.

For further inspiration as to what you can create with this set please visit TTCRD to see what my teamies have come up with. please remeber that our challenge is always anything goes, so get crafting. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.


  1. Silhouettes are always so versatile and these are no exception Theresa, and I love what you have done on each of the cards, especially using printable acetate and lovely bright alcohol inks to colour, and the sentiments layered up make them stand out beautifully. The shaker card works well too. x
