Baby Congrats!

Tuesday means it's time for a new CASology Challenge, and the cue word this week is THRILL.

What can be more THRILLing than welcoming a little one?!


Focus on your image and sentiment by putting them on a tag.

Painted Rose

The cue word at CASology Challenge is Copper this week.


I stamped the outline stamp in Versamark and embossed in dark brown embossing powder. Then I used Distress Stains in Tarnished Brass (the closest thing I had to copper) to stamp the lightest layer stamps for the flower and leaves. I also used it to colour some white card so that I could die cut my words in the same colour. I love that it has a metallic shimmer.

Abstract Watercolour

I was so inspired by THIS pin, I decided to have some fun with a few stamps and some watercolour. I just swished some circles with different colours. And don't you love those wonky lines from the Ellen Hutson Wonky Background stamp set?!



This is my entry for ... 

... the Colours and Sketches Challenge #271 : Sketch. I inverted the sketch and replaced the one square with a bold sentiment.

Watercolour Wishes


Playing with a mix of old and new supplies ... don't you just love those dots?! I can see many more cards coming with them.

I touched each dot with the corner of a mini Distress Ink using 3 colours, and then spritzed with water.


Background stripes are from the Papertrey Ink borders.

Post from the Jungle

Having spent some time in South Africa in a game reserve, I thought it would be good to send some mail from "the jungle" for this week's CASology challenge #298 with the cue word JUNGLE.

Butterfly waterfall card

It's been quite a while since I made a waterfall card, but this week's CASology challenge inspired me to get inter-ACTIVE!




In order to keep it CAS, I kept it to white pages and a white embossed panel for the holding strip.

I would have made it the true 7 colours of the rainbow if I hadn't run out of yellow and purple dotted paper. Amazing that we can have so much paper, yet still not have what we need.

Just for You

I'm a tea lover ... so happy that so many companies have come out with tea themed stamps and dies. The die is the largest from the Hero Arts Teapot Infinity set, flowers also from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from MFT. I thought putting the sentiment on a tag like a tea bag tag would suit this perfectly.

[Note: I have a sneaky trick to get the handle die cut as it is solid on the original die. I use the bowl from the MFT Beside Comfort set! ;)  ]

Any other tea drinkers out there? What is your favourite?
Mine is Earl Grey and English Breakfast.


More watercolour wonders


Up until now, I have mostly played with the Altenew Watercolour Wonders with Distress Inks and creating watercolour effects. Time to use the layering stamps and dies.
