I have used a couple of Simon Says Stamp products on my card today along with some ink blending. 

 

I wanted to do something slightly different with the Corbel Border die so I used it on a diagonal and die cut it twice. 

The ink blending underneath was done using some Hero Arts Dye inks and I used the same pink on the thanks sentiment. 

 
To add a little something more I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to add some bling.


So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

 I decided to make a Happy 2017 card for this weeks challenge and I did some ink smooshing using my Spectrum Aqua Markers.

 This is such a fun technique….I even got Mr Inky doing it with me. If you haven’t tried it then I highly recommend it.

I used my Aqua Markers but it can be done with with Distress Inks and watercolour paints.

I created several panels but decided to use this one which I due cut using Stitched Rectangle die.

The Happy sentiment I die cut from some black card and then when over it with my Spectrum Noir Sterling Silver Sparkle Pen.

I then die cut the numbers from some Silver Glitter card.

 I adhered everything to the panel using some Multi Medium Matte, and once it was dry I added some shadows to the numbers using a black gel pen. 
I then added some sequins and adhered to a black A2 note card. 
 This picture shows some of the sparkle on the Happy Die cut. 

I really had lots of fun getting inky with this card.   

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Spectrum Noir September challenge- Kraft

Hey lovelies, I hope you are all well ? 
Today I am sharing my DT card  for the Spectrum Noir September Challenge. The theme is Kraft, you can using it anywhere, colour on it, die cut it, use kraft card just as long as Kraft is featured somewhere on your project and if you win you will get $30/£30 worth of Spectrum Noir Goodies ! 
 https://www.facebook.com/SpectrumNoir/app/600469859988196/
I went for a thankful card using my Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils on some Kraft card. 
If you have never coloured on Kraft card then I highly recommend it, especially with pencils. 
 I have used Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest Stamp set (all supplies are listed and linked below) and I have stamped the wagon with pumpkins and some of the pumpkins using Archival Potting Soil as I thought black with be too harsh. I then coloured them using my Colourblend pencils and cut out using the co ordinating dies. 
The paper has been in my stash for ages and was a loose sheet that someone gifted me so I have no idea where it is from sorry, but I die cut the window using some rectangle dies and then created a Kraft card base and i marked out where the window will be. 
I then put the paper to one side and stamped up the corn and leaves using Archival – Dandelion, LEaf Green & Orange Blossom. 
I then heat embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing powder. 
I die cut the frame die from the same Kraft card and started to adhere everything to the base. 
I foam mounted the main part, the wagon and one of the pumpkins to give some dimension. 
The twine is a thicker twine I had and i preferred it on this card to the thinner twine I normally use. 
And that was the card done.
