Life Is Tough,But So Are You

Image
I'm sharing another colourful card today...this one is an encouragement card and in this card I have used an MFT striped background panel die to create the front panel..the little tiger was a last minute addition, but I think it was just perfect for my card...

Alcohol Inks Rainbow Background - Happy Birthday Wishes

Image
Last week we and our city suffered the after effects of almost record breaking downpour and really bad weather...one of our rooms got flooded too and my home has been a mess ever since...and it's quite cold too..so I thought that a rainbow card was just what I needed to cheer me up...!!

Pretty Pink Flowers For Scrapbook Boutique May Challenge

Image
I was inspired by one of the pictures in this month's mood board for the Scrapbook Boutique challenge.....but I did not have any stamps that were long stems with flowers....that would have been so easy....but this is a challenge..and the reason why I love such challenges is that they make you think creatively...so I masked the images and extended them to get the look that I wanted...

If Friends Were Flowers - Time Out Challenge #109

Image
For 'Inspired By Words' challenge #109 at the Time Out Challenges blog, my first idea was to make a flowery card with or without the friend theme...but the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I should make something one of my friends would have a good laugh at....so I chose this funny looking cow stamp from Katzelkraft and made this card...(can you tell I'm a big fan of comedy??)

Ornamental Flowers For Altenew May Inspiration Challenge

Image
I have had so much fun creating this card for the Altenew May 2018 Inspiration Challenge...I got very inspired by the three colours for the challenge and wanted to create a dark background for the gold embossed flowers and leaves...swapping the colours for the leaf and flowers was a very last minute idea and I think it works...what do you think..??

Happy Mother's Day!!

Image
It's Mother's Day in Australia on Sunday the 13th of May so here's wishing all the mums a very happy mother's day...may your kids always give you a reason to smile..!!
Today I'm sharing a cute card with adorable mama n baby elephants...and I was super happy with myself when I got the idea to put a crown on the mama's head...also I tried out an ink extracting technique I learnt from a tutorial recently shared by Chanin where she used a chamois cloth to create a pattern on a distress/oxide ink blended background...so easy...

Vellum Embossed Flowers For The Flower Challenge #20 - Sending Love

Image
While planning today's card, I wanted to use border stamps and at the same time I wanted the background to be subtle as my vellum flowers and die cut sentiment were going to be quite bright...I usually go for bright and colourful backgrounds for my cards, so this was a good challenge for me..

Wreath Turnabout - 2 Cards

Image
I have tried out a couple of turnabout stamps for creating easy and wonderful backgrounds for my cards,but this new wreath turnabout set(Concord & 9th) has a much smaller pattern and there are two of them in the set...my first thought was to create something with copper embossing and that's what I did for one of my cards...while on the other card I have simply used various Oxide inks to stamp the pattern...
