TO - Purple Angel - CASual Fridays

Image
Hello everyone,
26th March was Epilepsy Awareness day and we want to help raise awareness of this condition. Purple is the colour for Epilepsy and a purple ribbon represents Epilepsy and that's why we want to use Lots or a little purple. Epilepsy is a complicated condition that is often misunderstood. Many see seizures in the media as convulsive seizures but there are many types of seizures-many are silent and you wouldn't even know they were happening! You can take a look at this link to find out more. 

Also Sandie, our team leader, has epilepsy and she tells you her experience of living with this condition-so visit her blog if you want to know more.

Plus there is a hop going on to raise awareness of Epilepsy with some super Guest Designer and some prizes along the way. Friketa is organising this-pop on over and hop along! We have 'friendship' as our 'optional twist' as we thought it would be nice to send a purple card to a friend to make them smile!

CIC - Sweet bunnies - MFT

Hello everyone,
Hope you are all well! We have a new challenge up at Cupcake Inspirations and we have a color challenge! We are playing with Pink, Yellow and blue, this fortnight.

For my card I have an old stamp set by MFT - Somebunny for my card. I used Zig markers to color these cuties and sentiment and streamers from Sending sweet celebration wishes stamp set .

I made my card base with MFT's Water colour stripes background stamp by stamping Soft pink over a blush pink cardstock.

I hope you will join us with your take on these colors.
Also, I am part of the Save the You tuber video hop! Have you checked it out yet? If you are one of those who have some time in hand, you could check this fabulous hop organised by Justine Hovey! - Who was a DT at AAA Cards :)

AAA - Plant a garden - Funky fossil

Hello dear friends,
Hope you all are doing fine and are staying in and practicing social distancing. This new challenge at AAA cards has come at the right time. Even though I had plans for these hard times, my day gets over sooner than it used to earlier. Everyone home, endless chores, a kid to keep entertained, I have to use those few free minutes in hand for making cards.
Our new game is made in minutes with optional twist of use a stencil.  We are sponsored byFunky Fossil for this challenge and they are giving away £15.00 store credit to our winner.
I must tell you that even though I made this card in minutes , I had been planning it in my head all the time I was cooking :D I have seen cards with that torn edge look and I have been waiting to try it and I was so glad I could use it for this card. I didn't even use a masking paper. I used a copy paper I had on my desk, tore it into two and kept on my cardstock and put a stencil over it for sponging with two colors of green ink.

Spring beauty - Newton's Nook

Hello crafty friends,
I have been wanting to play with my new goodies and this stamp set by Newton's Nook Loads of blooms. This was my first card with the set and now this is the second. I love this set, love it!

I used the colours of the Inky Paws challenge for this Pastel card and took out my Pastel Tombow set for getting the colours as closest as in the challenge.  I stenciled soft clouds and fussy cut the flowers to look as if they were flying off the cycle. For the centre of the flowers I used Ivory seashell Nuvo drops.
I hope you like my spring inspired card.  Don't forget to check out the awesome Save the craft You tuber video hop that is going on. Here's my video that you can check out.

Everyone who plays and uses our optional twist of die cutting/fussy cutting will be entered into a random drawing to win a $40 gift voucher to the Stamplorations online store!

I used one of the flowers from Trendy spring bloom dies for my card. I sponged the petals with pink ink and leaves with greens and inlaid them back. And although I had plans to do heat embossing, we are experiencing power cut and I didnt want to wait until the power was restored, so I stamped my sentiment in black.

Hello everyone,
I am delighted and so honoured to be a Guest designer for Jane's doodles challenges . 
There is a new challenge at Jane's Doodles challenges - Embossing and I have used my first stamp by Jane's Doodles  - Cake stamp .
I chose to make a Clean and simple card with soft colours. I heat embossed my cake image  in gold and colored with Copics. For the background I have used the stars and hearts from To the moon set and sentiment from the Cake stamp

The cakes in this set are so beautiful, it is one of my most used and the most loved stamp.

I hope you like my card and will join in at the Embossing challenge.

I would also love to remind you to check theInternational Women's day celebrations   , I have used STAMPlorations stencil formy project, hope you will join in to celebrate womanhood.

CIC - Sending inlaid butterfly - STAMPlorations

Image
Hello and welcome,
There is a new challenge up at Cupcake Inspiration challenges and we are playing with Butterflies.
I chose a gorgeous die by STAMPlorations Flutter Zen for my card and a sentiment by SSS. I have done inlaid technique and achived a partial die cut look with the butterfly die. The upper butterfly is cut from vellum and the blue portion is some Brushos on water color paper. I had initially cut a white butterfly but then after sleeping over this card, in the morning I decided to add vellum. I added wink of stella on the blue butterfly panel and stuck the vellum butterfly.

I hope you like the card and will join us at Cupcake inspirations challenge.
Also, did you check the International Women's day celebrations ? I have used STAMPlorations stencil for my project, hope you will join in to celebrate womanhood.
