Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #54

Hi There

I’m back again tonight with this week’s Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge.

This week we have a sketch and/or photo inspiration challenge for you all to play along with.

As you can see by my card below, I played along with the gorgeous inspiration photo for this week’s challenge. I absolutely love the colours of fall so knew I had to play along with the photo this week and create a fall themed thank you card using the gorgeous Fresh Florals stamp set.

To create my card I began by stamping my sentiment onto my card base before stamping and die cutting the flowers from the Fresh Florals set. The inks I used for them were Cherry Pop, Pumpkin and Candy Corn and they work together so beautifully. Next I arranged them around my sentiment using adhesive foam before finally finishing off the card with some sequins from the Wedding sequin mix.

Anyway, that’s all from me for today but be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out some more gorgeous inspiration from the DT.

Have a wonderful night and happy crafting!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week so far? It feels like a while since I’ve popped in to share a post just for fun, but tonight I managed to find free time to create an entry for the MFT Stamps 2016 Card Design Superstar contest!

I chose to play with some of my favourite MFT products to create a CAS congratulations card perfect for an Engagement or Wedding, using the fun Modern Blooms stamp set.

To create my card I started off by die cutting a circle from the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax die set, and stamping my sentiment onto from the LJD Beautiful Baby stamp set.  Next I stamp my leaves and flowers onto a spare piece of white cardstock before die cutting the images out.  I then arranged them onto my wonky circle die cut and stuck them down with adhesive and foam.  Finally I stuck the wonky circle down onto my card base using adhesive foam, and embellished it with some clear droplets.

I absolutely love how this turned out and I love layering those gorgeous flowers!  It’s easy to tell why this is one of my favourite stamp sets!

Anyway, wish me luck and thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful night.

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #53

Hi Friends

Today is the day we have a new Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions for you all to play along with!

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

sjc53

This week for my card, I chose to play along with the colour challenge and create a CAS card for a baby shower I have coming up.

To create this card I started off by stamping my sentiment for the In & Out Wedding stamp set, onto my card base. Next I die cut the Little Bits: Rocking Horse from some Granny Smith cardstock and some toffee coloured glitter cardstock. I then assembled the horse and stuck it down onto my card using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some sequins from the Rainbow Brights and Wedding Sequin Mixes. I also added two adhesive rhinestone hearts.

I hope this card inspires you to create along with us this week.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #52

Hi Everyone

How has your week been so far? Today we have a fun new Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge for you all to play along with.

This week’s challenge is a sketch and/or CAS challenge.

For my card I played along with both the sketch and CAS challenge to create a fun Halloween card using the super cute new Batty for You stamp and die set!

This set is so much fun to create with! I started off by paper piecing the bats using some patterned paper from the new Haunted paper pack before aligning them onto my card base like the banner on the sketch. Next I stamped on my sentiment and embellished the card with some sequins from the Build a Scene: Halloween mix.

I love how this turned out and I can’t wait to play with this cute set again!

Be sure to stop by the challenge blog for all of this week’s challenge details.

Have a wonderful night.

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #51

Hi Everyone

Welcome back to another fun Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions!

This week we have an awesome sketch and/or Tic Tac Toe challenge for you all to play along with.

SJC51

I used the sketch for my card and created a sweet and simple congratulations card for a friend of mine who has a wedding coming up.

To create this card I layered up some die cut flowers from both the Friendship Blooms and Fresh Florals sets which I stuck down on top of a vellum Leafy Branch die cut.  Next I stamped my sentiment onto my card from the In & Out Wedding stamp set before embellishing the card with some sequins from the Wedding sequin mix, and an adhesive rhinestone.

I really love how simple but striking this card turned out.   I would love to see your interpretations of this great sketch.  For more details on how to play along visit the challenge blog here.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful night!
