LOVE tune

Time Out Challenge
Freshly Made Sketches

I’ve been practising some die embossing and I decided to do this for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #447 by Kim. The TIME OUT Challenge #167 inspiration is “Your love starts a dance party in my Heart”.

This is an IO word die, dry embossed and partially gold embossed. Some Zig gray for shadowing was added and a strip of a Hero Arts music score stamped to the left and silver pearl heat embossed.

Stay SAFE, thanks for dancing to my LOVE tune, HUGz, Joanna

Off the edge

AAA Cards Challenge

Off the edge is the theme over at AAA Cards Challenge #171. Three Memory Box seagull die cut masking and some DOX ink blending off the corner and top edge to play along with the optional twist “beach” view. The sentiment “Que la vie te soit douce” (May your life be sweet) was stamped in the same DOX colours and then WOW clear glitz heat embossed.

Hope you are well, stay safe, HUGz, Joanna

Summer flowers

Rainy Sundays are for crafting so I’m playing with the Less is More Summer flowers Challenge #425 along with the CAS(E) this Sketche Challenge #383.

Some BoBunny stitches stamping and pearl gold heat embossing for the frame. The black matted square die cuts are from IO stamps Spring Squares. The sentiment “Une petite note…” (A little note…) is from Simple à Souhait.

Hope you are all safe and well, thanks for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna

August CAS Mix Up 2020

Welcome back to a new challenge, Loll is getting our brushes out with the BEACH theme.  Please head over to the CAS Mix Up Blog and see what the Design Team and our special guest Brenda have created for your inspiration. I hope you’ll play along with us and share your creations in our gallery. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple.

For this card I stamped an Art Expressions Beach Babes with Memento Desert Sand Ink. I also added some Versamark + Sticky EP to the Sunglasses since I wanted to apply some gilding flakes. Then I watercoloured these Babes using Daniel Smith paints. I die cut a Spellbinders Speach Bubble die cut to stamp “life is a beach”.

Hope you’ll join in on the fun, thanks for stopping by, HUGs,

July CAS Mix Up 2020

My good friend Loll sent me a stencil a while back, made from a SSS Birch Tree Window die. The July CAS Mix Up, hosted by Nancy, is challenging us to do some stencil tracing. I ink blended some DOX inks over some Bristol paper in the tones of Broken China, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint. I removed the stencil and hand drew, with a black Micron pen one side of the birch trees. Some grey water colours were added to the same edge. A Spellbinder tag was tinted in Broken China and stamped with a Technique Tuesday stamp in Versafine black ink.

I hope you’ll check out the CAS Mix Up blog to see some amazing cards from our Designers, Guest Designers, and, of course YOU 😀 . Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,
