Live! Laugh! Love!

Hello and Welcome to my post for Colour Week at
Just Us Girls hosted by Angie
I've been on a bit of a girly kick lately
and I thought the pastels would make
a nice Shabby Chic/Vintage card.

My SU Banners were cut from Vintage Floral Flower
Design Papers from Inspired by Stamping
 inking the edges so they would stand out
behind my pearlized paper.
Added some lace, ribbon and wool on the side.
My die cuts and stamp are from Kaisercraft,
popped with a Spellbinder Die added to the background.
Finished with pearls and some pretty flowers
again from Inspired by Stamping with some Nuvo shimmer.
Card base is the same pearlized paper only thicker.

Pop over and see what our January Guests
Cindy and Janet created with my Team Mates.
Hope to see you in  Our Gallery this week.

Going to pop this over to
The Flower Challenge for their
Pink/Grey Colour Challenge

A 'Little Reminder' for the January STAMPloration Challenges

It's the middle of the month and Reminder Time
for the current challenges at
Check them all out Here

This is what I made as my 'Reminder' for
the CUTplorations Challenge.
and a close up


I did go bold and bright with my card starting with 
my background stenciling with
ARTplorations Circles using
Nuvo Shimmer Powders.
Decided to add some crackle glaze to the background
 but can't see in the photo. I then inked up some of 
Tim's Oxide Inks in bright colours after I 
heated embossed the STAMPlorations One Cool Chick
and added a bit more of the Shimmer Powders.
Coloured my 'Chick' image then the
heat embossed sentiment from
cut on an angle with
and inking the edges in black.
Just wish I had done the same to my background.
Finished with the  CUTplorations Sweet Word Die
cutting twice in a white backing for the pink. 


If you get time to play, make sure you
include the graphic in your post
 and link back to the challenge post
in order to qualify for our prizes.

It's CAS Time at Addicted to Stamps and More

I'm back for my first 2019 post for Addicted to Stamps and More
and it is our Clean and Simple Challenge.

I will admit I made this card ages ago
just trying out my then new 
Finnebair Art Alchemy Metallic Paints
(Love the shimmer!)
I simply added them to my glass mat
sprayed with water and smooched my background.
I then inked up my stitched floral stamp
gifted to me by a friend in SU Rich Razzleberry
then heat embossed clear.
Did the same with my STAMPlorations sentiment.
This was cut from a stitched die and attached to
 Rich Razzleberry and white card stock 
finishing with the white base.
Attached a few matching pearls to complete.

Hope you can pop over To Our Blog
to see what my Team Mates created and 
add yours to our Gallery.
