    You make my heart happy

    Hi my friends, Thanks for visiting today. The current MFT colour challenge has gorgeous colours: I was inspired by one of the designers Vika Salima’s card and the blooms she used, so I dug through my MFT stash and some patterned paper to create my entry: It’s very bold but I really quite like the graphic look – I would love to know what you think. I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes

    Watercolour altenew flowers

    Hey peeps! Todays card was super simple to make but I just loved the fresh spring colours.  I am using up some of my stash of coloured Simon Says Stamp card (which I love!) and I am really enjoying making car without a white base.  Simple designs really pop against the bright base. I used one if my favourite Altenew Stamp sets, Golden Garden and coloured the images with loose watercolour using distress inks.  The sentiment and die are both by MFT called Because You.  It’s great value because you get the Because die in with the stamp set!  I die cut it a few times, layered it with multi…

    Floral Background Stamping

    hey everyone! Can you believe it’s 2017 already? Today I’m sharing a card for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – anything goes. I created the floral panel using MFT pretty posies stamps and hero arts shadow inks.  The sentiment die is by SSS and covered with glossy accents.  I just love the pop of colour from the pink SSS cardstock!  A little (or a lot) of clear wink of Stella finishes it off. Hope you like today’s card.
