A Little Monochrome … And Some Watercolouring

Hello … bonjour!  Hope your weekend has been a great one … and that you’ve had chance to spend some of it creating.  I had a bit of time to play … and have four cards to share … first up, something rather crisp and clean …

A panel stamped with Papertrey‘s Doodlie-Do flowers and leaves and coloured with Promarkers … all in various grey tones.  The sentiment is also from Papertrey, the happy was embossed, the birthday was die cut twice and stacked.  I might add some bling or shine to the panel … it seems a little naked as is!

I’m playing along at (all the badges are at the bottom) …

SSS Monday – Happy Birthday … congratulations to the SSSM team on seven fabulous years!

Next, something with a little more colour …

This is a panel from my Lake House stash (thanks to Ardyth I think) … masked/stamped with the Mondo Peony from Essentials By Ellen.  I watercoloured it with my Zigs, stamped a sentiment from Avery Elle, did a little Black Soot DI splattering, scattered on some Lucy’s Little Jewels and adhered it flat to a card base.

Finally this evening, you’ve probably seen the Simply Graphic die delights that Maria has been showcasing … if not, go, right now … I’ll wait till you get back … they’re here, here and here.  Told ya … now, wasn’t that worth the detour?  So, I happened to mention in a comment that I share Maria’s love of this stylish company … and how the SG page in my wish book includes practically the whole line … and she promptly sent me a whole selection of delicious cuts.  Merci mille fois, encore, Maria!  This is the second card I’ve made with them (you’ll notice it has some similarities to one of those you’ve just seen over at Maria’s place) … not posted the first yet …

A panel of smooshed-with-Zigs watercolour paper, trimmed to size, acting as a bright backdrop for those swoonable SG abstract flowers.  The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter (I used a white gel pen for the ‘i’ as it fell perfectly over the stem) … and the frame is another of the goodies from my SG envelope (slightly reduced in size).

This little pretty is joining in the fun at (all the badges are at the bottom)  …

A Shower of Love … Over Scribbled Blooms

Hello … bonjour!  A mid week post that isn’t for Time Out (though some of my talented team mates have cards to show you today, so why not pop over!) … yep, it’s unusual.  I wanted to play along with the delightful and lovely Darnell‘s GD spot at Just Us Girls (among others), and Mr Linky will be closing his doors today.  So, here’s my card …

A stitched rectangle (thanks to Claire who sent me a yummy heap), sponged with a delicate meadow of gently splattered soft green, and stamped with a little cloud, heart drops and a sentiment from WPlus9 (I think now retired).  Just look at the way those little drops fell on the meadow … right into the form of a Winnie & Walter love die!  The hearts and die were coated with lashings of Spectrum Noir sparkle and a layer of Glossy Accents … here’s a closer shot so you can see it better …

While I’m here, here’s another CAS little pretty …

A white card panel, stamped with a row of WPlus9 leaves and stems, flower heads (masked off where it was needed) made with Circle Scribbles from Papertrey, and a sweet sentiment from Avery Elle.  A scattering of clear drops act as dew, as does Glossy Accents in the centre of each bloom.  The panel is popped up on craft foam on the card base.

A French Hen, Two Happy Bears And A Rainbow Village

Hello … bonjour!  I’m finishing the weekend with a trio of cards that are bright, colourful, happy and fun … here’s the first …

A little French hen from Essentials by Ellen, who came to roost at my house after a long trip across the pond (thanks Michele!) … coloured with Promarkers … perched on a rainbow backed Studio Calico die cut with a Waltzingmouse stamped sentiment … and carrying a trio of W&W shimmery balloons.

She’s off to play at …

A Trio of Cards

Hello … bonjour!  Hope your Sunday is going along wonderfully.  I have a trio of cards to share today, so will keep the chatter short and sweet … you may wish to grab a something long and cool and a snack before embarking!  First up, a wild flower, summer meadow-y sort of card …

Papertrey blooms, stamped onto a white panel and blinged up with some Stickles.  The sentiment (also Papertrey) was cut into the panel, popped up on craft foam and pieced back in.  The panel was popped up over a sponged-edged base card.  As it was for a special birthday celebration, I stamped a matching envelope too …

I’m playing along at …

Next, a clean and simple, slightly graphic card …

This was really quick to make … I used the Hero Arts Just For You by Lia stamp set, exactly as it’s laid out on the acetate carry sheet … stamped it onto a Winnie & Walter scalloped pierced panel and coloured it with alcohol markers.  The images were given some shimmer and shine with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents and the panel was adhered to the base with craft foam.

This is heading to …

A Blog Named Hero – Florals (with Winnie & Walter)

A2Z Scrapbooking – Anything Goes (Hero Arts)

          

Finally, a bright, smooshy little number …

Another Winnie & Walter scalloped pierced panel, cut from a piece of Distress Ink smooshed card … with a touch of gold thrown in for a bit of shimmer.  The gold isn’t too obvious here … you’ll see it better if you go in closer.  The Clearly Besotted dandelions were heat embossed in white, I added the simple sentiment (also CB), dotted over the piercings with a black fine liner and mounted the panel onto the card base with craft foam.

It’s joining in the fun at …

Time Out DT #87, Addicted to Stamps & More #249, Happy Little Stampers CAS – July, Virginia’s Summer Blog Party

Hello … bonjour!  We have a delicious new challenge for you at Time Out this fortnight … our theme is CASE the Designer … and we get to CASE one of the amazing and super creative talents in this wonderful community … my lovely friend, Cornelia from Stempel Spass.  Cornelia’s fun, fabulous card is a little further down … here’s my take on it …  Time Out          

and here’s Cornelia’s creative cutie …

I didn’t stray too far from the original … a couple of Technique Tuesday Chickadees standing on an SSS sentiment … a stamped line from Papertrey and some die cut hugs and kisses from Winnie & Walter.  The chickadees were coloured with Zigs, coated with copious amounts of Wink of Stella and topped off with a layer of Glossy Accents each.  They’re positioned so that one can give the other a great big birthday mwah … or maybe whisper something about a surprise party!  Want to see a close up …

What will your creative imagination make of Cornelia’s card?  There’s so much to play with … the fun image, those vibrant greens, the wood slice background, that encouraging sentiment, the layout … what do you see?  Whatever it is, we’d love to see what you create in our gallery!  This time round, we’re sponsored by Happy Little Stampers who are offering a $15 GC to our winner (voted for by the DT) … and as usual, our winner will also be invited to design with us in a future challenge.  All the details are over at Time Out, along with lots of delicious inspiration from our wonderful DT … and from our talented Guest Designer, Pooja from Reusing Cards & Quilling.  I’m pretty certain you’ll have come across and enjoyed visits with Cornelia and Pooja in blogland … if your haven’t (or even if you have), do go over and explore, say hello while you’re there … and enjoy every wonderful moment!

I’m playing along at …
