A Christmas FUSION...


Hope you get a chance to play along with FUSION this fortnight, in our last challenge for the year. So much fabulous inspiration from this gorgeous Christmas interior, and super versatile sketch!

I kept my card simple, taking inspiration from the white on white layering and Christmas candles. Layered this gorgeous Memory Box Christmas Candles diecut in white glitter paper, over a cardstock background, over vellum stamped in silver tinsel embossing powder using this gorgeous Verve sentiment.

Love to see how you are inspired by FUSION photo, sketch or both!

Christmas Joy @ FUSION...


Time for more fun @ FUSION this fortnight! 
With inspiration from the fabulously versatile FUSION sketch and the colours (with an added pop of red!) and Christmas theme from the super Joyful inspiration photo, I combined this gorgeous poinsettia stamp from Uniko Studio, stamped heat embossed, fussy cut and layered, with this scripty sentiment from Mama Elephant, and a few rhinestones for a bit of extra Christmas sparkle. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I used rhinestones on a card - can you?

Too Cool for School @ FUSION


Had fun creating for this fortnights FUSION, combining inspiration from this super cute school snacks photo, and fabulous sketch. 

I think this sentiment from MFT Vertical Greetings is perfect for teachers, stamped in Versamark Watermark ink and embossed in Zing White to create a faux chalkboard look. Stamped this Paper Smooches Falling for You apple onto polka dotted paper and fussy cut the white insides, adding pips created using the Paper Smooches butterfly wings from the Welcome Spring stamp set.

Be-paws it's Christmas...

Discovered another new(ish) Christmas Challenge over at The Merry Christmas Challenge, and thought I'd join in their Add a Cat or Dog Challenge, with my Be-paws it's Christmas card! Perfect occasion for playing along with Less Is More's 300th Challenge - Celebrations and Festivals too!

Stamped part of the sentiment using Paper Smooches sentiments, added "Paws" for effect (lol), and Simon Says Stamp "Christmas" diecut sentiment to complete.

Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop & Inspiration...

It has been forever since I have played along with Papertrey Inks Blog Hop - mostly because I never seem to be able to get organised to play between family and work time! So I am extra happy to be able to play along today, inspired by this super gorgeous Challenge photo.
Inspired to create with Papertrey Ink Hello Foxy stamp set and Wet Paint "Always" together with this gorgeous Papertrey Ink die cut tree and sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate it... today and always!!!

CAS(E) this Sketch on a Merry Monday...


Stamped these gorgeous Mama Elephant deer and bird silhouette images in Momento ink onto Lawn Fawn patterned paper, only to find you could still see the background through the image. Not wanting to see my patterned paper go to waste, I stamped onto plain paper in Watermark ink and heat embossed with Copper for the deer, and clear over red Momento ink for the bird, fussy cut and adhered the heat embossed images over my original stamping - patterned paper crisis averted!

The circular shaker box was created using Lil Inkers Stitched Circle and Dienamics Circle diecuts, to create a sandwich of foam sheet, clear acetate, and inserting "snow" glitter before adhering to the stamped pattern paper base. Added snow drift created using Mama Elephant diecut, and topped with Simon Says Stamp "Merry" sentiment.

So glad you could stop by!
