Had fun today


Color Throwdown- CTD775-Hot Pink, bright Purple, Emerald Green

Sparkles Monthly Challenge- New Beginnings

Inspire Me Monday- Anything Goes

I started making more cards since Christmas and this was fun…how could it not be! I already had cut out this peacock in the emerald green,paired it with this purply paper and added the pink for the background. I glued them all down and added some pink glitter to the body of the peacock. I got these wooden flowers for Christmas h plus many more wooden pieces) and coloured them in the hot pink. I added the sentiment that I cut out using my sizzex and, finally, added a little bling. I included this in Inspire Me Monday which can include anything creative from cards to cooking, you name it.

12 Months of Christmas- Die Cuts/ Embossing

CCAYR- Snowflakes

The 4 Seasons- chose Bird in the snow from the picture 

I am enjoying this new technique, well, new to me, where I took an embossing folder, enclosed white cardstock and pushed this through my cuddlebug. Using my stencil brushes, I took my distress inks in green, brown and red and coloured the image that is inset. Afterwards, I took black ink and placed the ink pad down on the card stock and lightly spread it onto the card until it was completely inked up in black. I glued it to this red glitter cardstock, added the sticker corners I coloured in green and Voila!
