I am still full with Joy and feel like I'm walking on air after finding out I am a Heartfelt Creations Design Team Semi-finalist.
So here's a card inspired by  the Fusion challenge blog
made with my Heartfelt Flowering Dogwood Stamps and Dies.
Spring is definitely in the air.

 I used Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz inks
from Stampin Up! to colour the flowers and leaves
And that fab embossing folder is from Crafters Companion Textures collection.

There's still time to vote for me if you like my work CLICK HERE PLEASE

Totally love this Rudolf

Another Merry Monday
And this week its stencils.

So I used my cosy Christmas stencil and O holy night
stencil from Hunkydory.
I used Soft Suede and Old Olive ink (Stampin Up!) to
create an inky background,
then stencilled some interest onto the card.

The star has been stencilled with stampin up embossing paste
-it really does set hard - 
which I covered in glitter.

A little tricky this week!!!!!!

I have no candles, no windows and no pine trees in my stash.
I don't even have a robin stamp!

I did find a Holly vine frame die from tonic and some lovely green ribbon though.
and this cute little dog - with his 2 robin friends!
All layered onto cream and kraft card.

I'm building up a nice little stash of cards ready for Christmas 2018!

Todays card is for the CAS watercolour card challenge
The theme? "HEART"

My kraft base card is 5" x 6.5"
I used a 3" x 4.25" piece of cream card for the image
Coloured the card with a moss green brusho wash
Added some stencilled diamonds
and 1 or 2 stamped hearts.
The sentiment is embossed in Stampin Up! early expresso
then I layered onto early expresso card
and wrapped some linen thread around it.

The main heart is made on cream card with the moss green brusho
its a punch I have in my stash.

I find CAS cards tricky - It takes me ages to decide what I'm doing!

This weeks Fusion  challenge is "Stained Glass Hearts"
I've given my Tonic Hello Beautiful verso die it's maiden voyage!
The embossing folder and stamp set fit so well together.

My red card is Rose Red from Stampin Up! 
the back of the hearts and the green heart -from my scrap box.
Sentiment from Hunkydory FTLOS - Birthday Wishes.

Perfect for an engagement card.

I entered this in a challenge -
To create a card inspired by this photo
Really pleased with how my little lass turned out.

I made this 7 x 7 card using Hunkydory papers from their
All Occasions Luxury paper pad.
The trees are made from Hunkydory Moonstone dies.
And the lovely little lass is a "Scruffy Little Kitten" from Crafters Companion - 
Coloured using kuretake water colour pens.
Kuretake pens used:- Persian Blue, Flesh, Green Gray, Light Gray, Gray Brown, Mid Gray, and Olive Green. For the brolly - Deep Violet, Light Carmine, and Bright Yellow.
Merry Monday soon comes around . . . . .
This week the theme is "pastel colours"
I found these papers in my stash
from Making Cards Magazine last Christmas -
and thought how well they fitted the theme.

I am also entering this card in The Merry Christmas Challenge

The coloured card is from Stampin Up! and I have used snowflake and sentiment dies
which have been lightly edged with ink.
I think these little decoupaged penguins are sooooo cute.
