Artsy Daisy

Playing with the Color Throwdown Challenge #631 and the AAA Cards Game #184 Sketch + optional twist Watercolour. Having fun with some watercolour smooshing, modelling paste and Pink Fresh Floral Square Dies. A turquoise rhinestone to finish 😉 !

Hope you are well, thank you so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna


This design has been popular, but I tried to put my style into the layout, …trying to keep it CAS. Playing with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #408 and the Happy Little Stampers: HLS February Anything Goes with Dies Challenge. Vanilla card stock was used since it’s friends in their 60’s renewing their wedding vows.

Stay SAFE & take care, thank you so much for stopping by, Joanna

Je suis là…

A dimensional OLC for the Less is More flower challenge #437. I debossed the front panel with a rectangle die cut. Then I added a little stencil ink blending and a little embossing paste with some silver embossing powder. I made two 😀 but the second I used only embossing paste with EP over the debossed center. The sentiment “Je suis là…” (I am there…) was stamped and also silver heat embossed.

Supplies: Simply Graphic dies, Liquitex texture paste, DOX ink & WOW embossing powder, Simple à Souhait stamp

Split leaves

Playing along with Sunday Stamps SSC250 – Split it Up and the Color Hues Challenge #12 – Peach and Green. I cut in thirds an Altenew burlap die cut and added some watercolored leaves from Simply Graphic. The sentiment stamped in dark brown on vellum “je pense à toi” means thinking of you.

Take care and thank you so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna


That’s the name of this cute Penny Black branch die cut of hearts. The gorgeous yummy heart photo over at TIME OUT Challenge #181 inspired me to play. The Color Throwdown Challenge #629 palette along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #472 by Narelle made it come together. So pleased with the outcome.

Wishing you a very special Valentine’s Day filled with love and health in these very special times. Thank you so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna

Hearts & Stencils

Combining those two elements is always fun. Some embossing paste through, both, a flower and heart stencil. Adding two different types of gold embossing powder, then blasting it with my heat gun. The gold “Merci d’être là” means Thank you for being there. So appropriate right now, don’t you think?

Playing with the Inkspirational Challenge #232Hearts; Just Us Girls Challenge #570Valentine; Perfectly CAS Challenge #11Stencils; and, of course, CAS Mix Up FebruaryStencil & heat embossing! Happy Little Stamper also has the Stencil Challenge “Anything Goes” 😀

Thank YOU for being there, Happy Valentine’s, HUGz, Joanna

LIM – Chocolate

It’s a yummy chocolate BD theme over at the Less is More Challenge #436. Oups I spilled my chocolate…. LOL, …I have granules of walnut stain which I sprinkled onto 110 lb card stock and spritzed with some water. Once dry I used a border die and added a Bonne Fête (Happy Birthday) word die out of brown glitter cardstock.

Stay safe and make cards 😀 , thank you so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna

OLC Amore

Yup a OLC for two challenges Color Throwdown #628 and Freshly Made Sketches #471. Just lots of stamping with a box of old candy heart wooden stamps. I had lots of fun and remembered Jennifer McGuire’s You-Tube, our favourite card Queen, on repeat stamping. A little glitter embossing and Nuvo drops for some bling.

Hope you are SAFE and WELL, thank you so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna
