Creative Fingers challenge – anything goes

This week’s challenge at Creative fingers is sponsored by:

I have made a Christmas card, by duplicating and flipping the digistamp and using it to frame a sentiment typed out in Serif CraftArtist 2.  After being coloured with Promarkers, the topper was cut with a decorative Spellbinder die.  It was mounted up using free papers which came with one of the magazines from Intermediate Media last year.

I have a rubber stamp with this sentiment and I use it and reproduce it in so many of my cards as I love it.

Creative Moments DT Post – Flowers

For the latest Creative Moments challenge, I have joined two sweet digis from Just Inklined.  The theme this fortnight is flowers.

The heart shapes were cut out using Sizzix dies from a selection of odd papers from my stash.  The ribbons were also scraps and 3 short lengths were tied into a bow using a bow-maker.  All papers were dusted around the edge with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distressing ink.


Today I am entering these challenges: – the letter ‘H’ (heart/her) – lots of layers – in the garden – pastels – use die-cuts – die-cuts/punches – pink, scallops, border & bow

There are more details on the challenge here – hope you can join us!

Reason for the Season – Easter card

Happy Easter to you all. I normally  wouldn’t wish Happy Easter until Easter Sunday but had to post early to enter my cards into the challenges!  I send a lot of Easter cards and try to ensure most reflect the holiness of the resurrection of Christ.  This is a very special one for my sister – the one person who appreciates beautiful cards as much as I do. It is also for all of you – who clearly fall into the category too. 🙂

The cross was cut with a Sizzlits die, whilst all the other edges were cut with Spellbinders.   The patterned paper has spring pansies on it and is from the Grandma’s button Box paper line from a few years back.  The silver has an embossed linen effect.


This card will be entered ino the following challenges: – He is risen + pastels – clean and simple – Easter – hoarded suppies + spring – Easter – Easter – monchromatic pastels – Easter – Easter – colour challenge

Thank you so much for looking, I’d love to read any comments you might have.

Love heart CAS card

I do love a CAS card.  This one is beautifully simple made using Sizzix products to emboss the background and cut the hearts and letters.  Spun Sugar was the colour of the Tim Holtz ink pad used to ink around the shapes and colour the letters.


This is to be entered into the following challenges: – Valentines – Valentines/Love
