T is for Technique

Hi crafty people, how are you today? I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend! I’m here today as a guest designer for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge as I was crowned the Queen of Snark for their M is for Magic challenge with my witchy Stella project.

Part of my royal duties (well all of them really!) is to be a guest designer for a challenge so here is my post for the brand new challenge….. T is for Technique!

I decided to use die cutting and stamping as they are my most used techniques. I chose to use the Life Happens stamp set from Hot off the Press and the chocolate squares die from Tattered Lace.

I used centura pearl card in chocolate brown and a cadburys purple colours and added some nuvo glitter drops.

I hope it made you smile and that you have some chocolate today!

Autumn Leaves

Hi crafty people! How are you today?  I’ve been super busy with a couple of bulk orders of cards but I thought I would grab a quick break to make a new design for the October Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe challenge.  The grid is as follows and I chose to go for the top row across.


I really wanted to use this Hot Off the Press leaf die which I got before my holiday as a magazine gift.  I cut the detailed outline of the leaf from brown card stock.  The background for the leaf was created with the Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Catherine Wheel.  I scattered some of the powder onto white card and then spritzed it with water and then dried it off with my heat tool because I was impatient!


For the bronze I picked up some different textures of bronze coloured papers, from glitter to embossed and metallic.


I hope that you like my autumnal card, I liked bringing in the different textures from the natural burlap to some glitter card!  Thanks so much for visiting the blog, I always love when you take the time to say hello and leave a comment.  I hope to see you again soon!
