With Love!

Sue is Hosting this week at Just Us Girls 
and is looking for Hearts!

You can never send too much Love can you?

I hadn't intended my heart to be so "redish' but 
the Lindy's Bougainvillea Fuchsia
 has a mix of red/pink and purple.
I die cut an old Cuttlebug heart, flowers
and heart heads from the mix.
There is also a white cut out heart in the background
and scored behind that for extra interest.
Die cut a few extra heart stems in white
and a flourish from Fancy That.
Sentiment from STAMPlorations,
a few splatters and tiny pearls to finish.
Head over and see how our Guest Jules
and the Team used their 'Hearts'
 perfect for those that create cards for
Valentine's Day coming up -
so come join in with yours to our Gallery.
We would love to see you there.

Sending this over to the  Romantic Challenge #229
Going with Middle Row Down
Hearts - Free - Shades of Red

Thanks for visiting.

Be True to You!

It's our first challenge for the New Year at
we are starting off with
  Something New!
With so many new craft items either bought
or gifted the fun of choosing could be hard.

My Something New is 
The stamp I used here bought 
late last year after seeing a card
made by our Sistah Annie.
It's Timeless Tulips from Dark Room Door.
Background is inked up with
Tim's Ox inks, stenciling (new) and stamping from
Fussy cut the tulips inked, heat embossed
and slightly popped.
Framed and adhered to white card base.

Showing off the whole stamp here - 
first time inking with Versafine Clair Nocturne 
and heat embossed onto a background
from my bits box. 
Added some splatters and a simple sentiment.
Framed and onto black card base.
Head over and see what my sistahs created.
We would love to see your
'Something New' in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in

Christmas Snippets

It's our first Challenge for 2023 at Christmas Craft Creations 
and one I am sure we all have lots of after 
our Christmas card making for last year.

Here's mine!

All dp used here are leftover bits (snippets).
Die cut five trees, adhered to white cardstock,
framed in red and corner rounded as is the 
one background piece. Both adhered to
white and red card base.
Merry die/sentiment is from Her Arts
and finished with a red bird.

After our recent DT call out we have 
New Talented Designers joining the fun.
Head over to Our Blog and check out
how creative the Team were with their snippets
and don't forget to leave some kind 
welcoming comments for our Newbies.
Looking to see lots of lovely creations.
Will yours be there?
Thanks for popping in

It's Gold! oh and Pink!

 I just HAD TO make another card for the
using 'real gold paper' and of course pink.

I got out two dies - Memory Box Loveland Corner 
cutting twice (pink and gold)
and CUTplorations Clustered Hearts a few (quite a few) more
as I was going to use them on another card but
didn't work out as planned so scattered a few spares for interest.
The Love Die was a gift.
This was all adhered to gold metallic paper
and on to metallic gold card base.
The Design Team and Newbies 
Jules Stef and Marcia so inspired us
with their amazing cards didn't they?
Thanks for visiting.
