Inpire.Create.Challenge #082 - You Snailed It!...

 I loved this really simple sketch from the Inspire.Create.Challenge team this week.

I couldn't wait to get creating and here is what I came up with.

Snailed It


I started with a Real Red card base.  I cut a piece of the brilliant In Good Taste DSP and stamped the little heart from the Snailed It Stamp Set in Versamark ink and heat embossed them in clear embossing powder.  It's really subtle but looks really cute as it glistens.

I die cut a circle and sponged some Granny Apple Green ink at the bottom of the circle and balmy blue to the top section.

I stamped the snail in Memento ink on to some Basic White cardstock and coloured using Stampin' Blends before cutting out and sticking to the circle using dimensionals.  I added some faux stitching to the circle and added the greeting.

I hope you like my card, it was fun to create, why not give the challenge a go for yourself.

Good morning and welcome.  How is it Monday again?  Despite being in lockdown, the days just seem to fly by, so much creating to do and not enough time!

I am currently awaiting an order with some more new goodies so today I decided to dust off an old favourite, Daisy Lane.

Love Themed Blog Hop...


Good afternoon and welcome to this wonderful Love themed blog hop.  Today I am hopping with demonstrators from around the World for the Crafty Collaborations blog hop.

I am sharing a square card with you today.  I rarely make square cards but I thought it worked well for this project.

Lovely You

I wanted to create lots of layers for this card so I made my base card which measures 14cm square in Poppy Parade and I then cut various layers in Basic Black and Basic White cardstock.  The bottom two layers are stuck directly to the card front and the next two have been stuck together and raised using dimensionals.

I then cut out two hearts using the Stitched Be Mine Dies, one in Whisper White and one in Poppy Parade.  Using our amazing Stampin' Markers I added colour directly to the floral stamp, in Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green and stamped them randomly all over the Basic White heart.

Lovely You

I glued the heart to my card front and cut out the LOVE from the Always Dies in Basic Black cardstock.  The 'You More' was stamped in black Memento on to Basic White cardstock and cut out using the same dies.  I glued these to my card front before adding some faux stitching with a black maker and a few gems to complete.

Lovely You

I hope you like my nod to valentines today.  You can visit the other hoppers by clicking on the link below.
