Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #46

Hi Again!

Welcome back to a new Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions. This week we have a great sketch and/or photo inspiration challenge for you to play along with.

SJC46

For my card I chose to play with the sketch and create a cute birthday card using the Pixie Dust stamp and die set.

I started off by stamping and paper piecing together the cute little princess from the set, using polka dot paper from the Rainbow Brights paper pack. Next I die cut a cloud panel for the bottom of my card, before stamping my sentiment onto a small panel of white cardstock. I then assembled the card together going by the sketch, and embellished it with some sequins from the Double the Joy sequin mix.

The cloud bottom to the card added a more whimsical feel to the princess and tied the card together perfectly.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week!

Enjoy the rest of your night.

Fairy Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone

Happy Wednesday! Can you believe we are already half way through another week. Only two more days and it’ll be the weekend again and hopefully I can sneak in some more craft time while the hubby looks after the kiddos!

Today I’m popping in to share a cute birthday card set I created last night using the super cute Pixie Dust stamps and dies by Avery Elle. Whimsical creatures seem to be the in thing at the moment so I could resist playing with this adorable set to create a couple of cards.

For my first card I went with a pink colour scheme for the fairy. I stamped and die cut the fairy from some plain white cardstock before stamping again onto patterned paper and glitter cardstock, to paper piece the fairy’s dress and wings.  Next I coloured the rest of the fairy in using my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers.  I’m not really a colourer, but thankfully it turned out ok! Lol

Finally I stamped my sentiment onto my card base, before sticking the fairy down with some adhesive foam, and embellishing the card with some die cut glitter stars and adhesive pearls.

For my second card I went with a purple colour scheme for the fairy. Again everything I did for this card was pretty much the same as the first, except I added some adhesive stars for embellishment.

Magical Birthday Wishes Card

I love how these two cards turned out. It’s definitely a fun stamp set to play with and I know two little girls in particular, who would LOVE these cards!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #45

Hello

Thursday is upon us again so that means it’s time for a new Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge!

SJC45

This week we have a fun sketch and/or colour challenge for you to play along with.

Simone_SJC45

I chose to play along with the colour challenge for my card and created a birthday card for a friend of mine.

Using the Graphic Greetings Birthday stamp, I started my card by using it as a background point on my card. I stamped the greeting onto my card base using Granny Smith ink.  Next I die cut two presents from Lemon Meringue, Lollipop and Cookie Monster cardstock using the Little Bits – Presents die.  To add some orange to my card as per the colour challenge, I then embellished the card with some sequins from the Double the Joy sequin mix.

I hope you will all have some time to play along with this week’s challenge.  For more challenge inspiration and full details on how to play along, visit the Share Joy Challenge blog.

Have a wonderful night!

Splitcoaststampers: This Land Is My Land

Hi Everyone

How is your Tuesday going so far? We’ve been having a very sunny couple of winter days here this week, , so my girls have been spending as much time as they can outside riding their bikes and enjoying the weather before the rain comes for the rest of the week!

Anyway, today I have some sneak peeks to share with you of some cards I created for this month’s Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Gallery Challenge.

Splitcoast July Sneak

Being July, this month’s theme is a very patriotic This Land Is My Land one where we ask you to get crafty and create cards that remind you of your home or where you live etc.

For some more Dirty Girl inspiration to get you creating for this challenge, visit the gallery here, and play along!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #44

Hello Friends

Hope your week has been going great so far. It has been freezing here this past week, so most of our time has been spent indoors with the heater on. I do love winter and am not looking forward to it ending!

Anyway, today marks the start of another Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions! This week we have a sketch and/or CAS challenge for you all to play along with.

SJC44

I went with CAS for my card as that is my main card making style, to create a sweet floral Thinking of You card. I really can’t seem to get enough of the gorgeous Fresh Florals stamp set!

Simone_SJC44

To create my card I started off by stamping a series of gold brush strokes from the Stroke of Genius stamp set onto my card base, before stamping my sentiment onto it. Next I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Fresh Florals set in Lollipop and Jelly Donut inks before die cutting them out and arranging them onto my card.  I then added some gold sequins from the Wedding sequin mix for extra embellishment.

I hope this card inspires you to play along with us this weekend.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
