    Clearly besotted floral CAS card

    Hiya Todays card is a very CAS card using a gorgeous bouquet of flowers by Clearly Besotted. I heat embossed these on vellum, fussy cut out and coloured the back with copics.  Next I took a side folding pink cardbase, painted the centre with gansai tambi white pearl I see paint with a minimum amount of water so that it wouldn’t warp.  I added some white and green paint splatters.  Next I heat embossed a congratulations sentiment on black cardstock and adhered everything together.  Voila! I had the Flower Challenge – Anything Goes in mind when making this card ( they have an open DT spot and I would love…

    Coffee OCD

    Hey everyone The sentiment in today’s card really speaks to me – These days Inlive for my coffee.  Do you have OCD? Obsessive Coffee Disorder?

    Week 1: The daily marker 30 challenge

    Hey everyone.  Kathy Racoosin hosts a 30 day marker challenge periodically to encourage us all to take 10 minutes a day to sit, relax and colour.  You can use pens, pencils, paints, anything at all.  This is my first time following along, it started July 5th and I thought in this post I would add my cards or images that I colour.  Some days it might just be a little, other days I may be able to make a card.  That’s what’s lovely about this challenge it’s supposed to be very easy and relaxing and you don’t have to enter every day either if you can’t manage.  Which is great…

    Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge card

    It’s another sss Wednesday challenge and this week it’s Anything Goes. I really tried to push myself out my comfort zone with this card – no flowers and using dies, trying to create a ‘scene’.  It was grey and raining here, we have had no sign of summer so I was sat wishing I had a warm log fire to sit in front of and this inspired my autumn (fall) feeling card with the red and orange colours.  I used the lovely stamp and die set by Simon says stamp called Make A Home and behind that is the birch background set by clearly besotted stamped in weathered wood distress…

    Clearly Besotted To You With Love card

    This is my first play with the beautiful Clearly Besotted TO YOU WITH LOVE Stamp Set.   I really need more practice with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. I stamped my flowers with hero arts black India ink which is a waterproof ink onto watercolour paper so that I didn’t need to worry about the ink bleeding.  I don’t have any masking paper yet so I stamped the images into normal paper and cut these out so that I could mask the flowers and make it look like there was a profusion of blooms in front and behind each other. The beautiful ‘For You’ sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Lovely Spring set.  I…
