It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls

It's our Photo Week and what a Beauty
Maria as Host chose for us.
What caught your eye?
There are so many elements here but 
the bicycle is what I saw first
then the pretty flowers.

I love this Cherry Lynn Vintage Bicycle
which was cut from brown card stock - 
the same as the base.
My embossed Brick Wall is from Kaisercraft 
and inked with TH Frayed Burlap.
To go with the flowers I cut a Memory Box
Woodland Branch  and added a 
multitude of coloured flowers with Nuvo Drop centres
and a few leaves from Marianne Designs.
For the Gina K sentiment I cut a MFT circle
and heat embossed in white then
cut a smaller one for the back wheel.

Don't forget to pop over To Our Blog
to see what caught the eye of our
January Guest Cathy and the Team
and come join us this week.
Hope to see you in the Gallery.

Thanks for dropping in. 
Love reading your thoughts.

Hey There

Back Again - this time for the current challenge over at
Addicted to CAS and it is one of my favourites -  Ombre!

My card was reeeeeeealy easy to achieve that ombre look
because of Altenew's  Ink cubes
where you get 4 little colour coordinating pads.
This one is Cosmos - 
Image result for Altenew cosmos ink
I went with the darkest to lightest.
The background stamping is from 
changing the stamps direction each time.
The floral image is part of the
Kaisercraft Secret Bird Collection Stamp Set.
I stamped my sentiment  from 
Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler
then cut with Spellbinders Scalloped die.
Inked the edges but still was missing something
so lightly sponged inside.
Now I couldn't decide what card base to use.
Tried black - yuk! left it for a while and came back
and it hit me! Just use white and lightly ink
the background from the same stamp set. 
Here is what it looks like - 
I used the lightest ink and I was happy.
Popped it and my cas card is complete.

Check out the Details for this challenge  Here

Thanks for dropping back in again so quickly.

It's Black - White - and -

Hello there and Welcome!
I found this great blog called Daring Cardmakers recently 
and their current challenge really appealed to me so...
here is what I made - 
for their Black - White - Pop challenge.
There are so many colours that go perfectly
with black/white and I chose red.
My card base is basic black.
The lace background is from
SU Delicate Details (may be retired)
I love that it looks like real lace.
The black & white leaves behind my flower
are from Marianne Dies.
My red flower is from
STAMPlorations Trendy Spring Blooms
stamp and die set.
I cut the back part of the flower with red card stock
carefully keeping all the die cut bits in place
then again heat embossing in red
this time taking out all the petals.
The floral centre has been sprinkled with black glitter.
My Thank you is cut from a MFT stitched die
inked in red and from the same set.

That's all for now so -  till next time

A Tic Tac Toe 'Hello'

Hi there and Welcome. 
Today's post is for the Current Challenge

I have been having soooooooo much fun
with glad wrap these last few weeks I thought
I would use one for my cas card.
As you can see I chose
the Bottom Row from left to right
(sequins, watercolour, square.)
I spritzed water on glossy photo paper
then sprinkled Brusho's covering it
with glad wrap, moving it around
to create creases and patterns.
I added a frame to the front 
and popped it onto my square piece of
basic white card stock.
Added the sequins and a Hello die
from CUTplorations and my
cas card is done.

so will pop my card there too.

Thanks for dropping in
