Happy Birthday Kylie, CTS 83, Uniko 11, Stamplorations July, SSSM 30-6

Honourable Mention

I stamped the Uniko Studio gerbera onto watercolour card and (as Shirley would say), sloshed some colour over it.  Once it was dry, it was trimmed out, coated with Wink of Stella, and had Stickles added to the centre.  I stamped an Annabelle Stamps sentiment onto a watercolour card base, popped up the gerbera on foam dots, added a little bling and rounded the corners.

I’m entering Kylie’s card into these challenges …

CAS(E) This Sketch (where I’ve not played forever … see below for Gayatri’s fabulous sketch)

Uniko Studio – Birthday and Purple Hues (see below)

Stamplorations – Stamps and Glitter (you can’t see the WoS but the glitter’s pretty full on!)

SSS Monday – W Is For White (all but the flower)

Thank you so much for all your good wishes, healing thoughts and prayers after the epic hand v hot baking tray battle … it’s much, much better (the hand!) and I’m back to (gingerly) doing things two handed.  Whilst I’m not a quick card maker at the best of times, at the moment I’m even slower than usual (is that the hand or is that Monsieur Mojo playing up, I wonder) … so I’ve come up with a cunning plan to keep posting.  I’m going to post a couple of cards made a while ago that I never shared … they’re already in the hands of the sweet friends to whom they were sent, so I won’t be ruining any surprises!

See you a little later.  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Hi Anita! Brilliant card-a sparkling beauty. Beautiful sentiment and scale. Great takes on ALL of these challenges too. Wishing you continued healing with your hand and looking forward to your future cards. Have a great day!

    Oh my goodness Anita! You have done it again…this is amazing. What a gorgeous flower and the way you colored it is simply stunning. Hoping your hand and fingers are feeling much better, take care and sending hugs!

  3. Bev

    Another stunner, my friend! LOVE it. Simply GORGEOUS! So glad to hear your boo-boo is getting better. And when you are completely healed, Monsieur Mojo better be ready for some serious, two-handed card making time! Can’t imagine how you made this without full use of both hands…blows my mind. Did I mention that I LOVE it?????!!!

  4. Brenda

    Oh Anita, I am loving this card! The flower is so pretty and I love how you have colored it. You finished it off with such pretty bling and the sentiment. Yes, a beautiful card indeed! Hugs, Brenda

    Your Gerbera daisy is absolutely gorgeous, Anita! I know Kylie is going to love it, too!
    So glad you’re starting to feel a lot better! Sending you my best wishes!

  6. Kylie

    LOVE it, Anita. Just wow!! Thank you so very much. What a wonderful surprise party I am having. Words cannot express…. thank you!! xx

    Very pretty card, the flower is lovely as is the colour. I love the touches of gems too. Thanks so much for joining in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Tracy x

    Nothing like a good ‘sloshing’, its very cathartic I think!! This card is beautiful and love the colour and watercolouring effect. And so glad to hear your hand is gradually healing. It really puts you out when your hands can’t be used, that quite literally are very ‘handy’!! Max tried to make his first pikelet today and caught his finger on the side of the frypan. Lots of cold water and tears and decision made to leave the cooking to me a bit longer. Look forward to seeing your new (old) cards too!

  9. Petra

    WOW, you are a master at ‘sloshing’, Anita!!! You have given that beautiful gerbera such a lot of dimension!!! The purple looks great and the WOS and stickles just adds to the loveliness!!! The sentiment stamp goes so nicely with the gerbera and of cause the perfectly placed bling and the rounded corners finishes off this card as a stunner!!!!
    Glad that hand of yours’ is better!!! Now you be careful in future with hot trays, hey!!!
    Looking at the three cards you have posted, I can tell that Monsieur Mojo is back where he belongs – close at your side and inspiring you to inspire us with your beautiful cards!!!
    Have a super week!!!

    Such an eyecatcher, Anita! And sorry to hear about your hand (see, it’s a good thing your boys have gone home so you don’t have to do too much World Cup clapping ;))

  11. Geri G

    You are truly gifted with a natural ‘slosher’ ability! The bloom looks awesome! The wee bits of strategically placed bling the flower image perfectly! Love the subtle ink color of the sentiment too!


  12. Kelly Griglione

    Oh no, I didn’t realize your hand was injured! I sure hope it’s feeling better by now. A great way to use purple here … with lots of white! What a beautiful flower!!

  13. Beverley

    Stunning Anita, simply stunning! Love the dimension & use of the Uniko Studio Challenge colours. Thank you SO much for joining in 🙂 Hugs Bev x

    Ahhh…the beautiful gerbera Uniko stamp that, in your hands, comes to vivid, beautiful life! Ever so pretty! Stunning colours and dimension; your sloshing is outstanding (and, did I not read at some point that a C plate for your cuttlebug made an appearance? Isn’t there also a die for this gem? I’ll take a die over fussy cutting…my already dwindled eyesight further dwindles…any day!) In any event, your fussy cutting adds more ‘impressive’ to the already off-the-scale impressive of this delight!
