I used a really sweet stamp set called Owls on a Branch to create my card for this weeks challenge. 

I water coloured the image using my Spectrum Aqua Markers and wanted the image to be the main focal point so I just added a Stitched frame border and mounted the piece onto some Plaid paper that I was gifted a few years ago, I thought it went perfectly with the image. 

The sentiment I stamped in Simon’s Cobblestone ink (the same i used to stamp the image) this is a lovely ink if you want something softer than black. 

I added some white dots to the hats, stockings and owls along with some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle. The card was finished off with some May Arts Twine. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.

 I decided to create some gift wrap and matching gift tag using the Twinkle Towns Die set. 

I created a stamp using the Oh Jo die and stamped over some kraft gift wrap in Simon’s Clear Ink and then heat embossed using Simon’s Fine Detail gold powder. 
I then die cut the bauble from Kraft card & Vellum and die cut the sentiment which I then heat embossed. 
I also added some embossing powder to the top of the vellum piece and punched a hole for the twine. 
This was really fun to do and a great way to stretch your supplies. 

 So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #396- A Christmas To Die For.

And here is my card for the challenge. 


This card was a nightmare to photograph I cannot tell you how many different angles, or lighting I tried, the sequins really are a lot more crystal like. 
I have used Ring Wreath Die (all are linked below) and I triple die cut it out of Neenah and then adhered them all together to give some dimension. 
I then took Simons Crystal Sequins and just randomally stuck them down using some Ranger Multi Medium Matt. 
For the Sentiment I used the Merry & Bright Die from Simon and coloured it with my Spectrum Noirs and added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen and glossy accents
Once that was dry I adhered it to the wreath. 
I wanted to go for something bright and fun, but this card would look beautiful with just clear sequins or gems. The great thing about this die is that it is so versatile. 

I did have a video for this week but something went wrong in editing and I ended up with half a video ! So I will recreate this card using different sequins soon. 

 So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Spectrum Noir November Challenge

Hey lovelies, I hope you are all having a great week 🙂 
Today I wanted to share with you my cards for this months Spectrum Noir challenge.
In case you hadn’t seen we have changed the challenge up a bit and the theme is always Anything Goes, but in order to win a Spectrum Noir prize package you need to follow the optional theme, which this month is Christmas. 
http://a.pgtb.me/nTsF1h
I made not one card, but 3 for the challenge…well they are all similar just some different colours 🙂 
I couldn’t resist this set when Clearly Besotted released it and have used it on most of my cards for close friends and family, I really do love him and so much fun to colour. 
I used my Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils to colour all 3 and my IG1 & IG2 markers to draw a snowy ground (show up better in real life). 
I coloured each image the same other than their saddles and scarfs and then I matched the trims down the side of the card to that colour. 
I added some glitter detailing using my Quicky Glue pen and Elizabeth Crafts Diamond Glitter to this one, but I dont like the purple tone it gave so I would miss that out in future, for the others I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen which looks better. 
For the sentiments I used the Basic Banner 3 set and matching die and stamped using Ranger dye ink. 
For the background I used a snow stamp from last months Hero Arts kit with some silver pigment ink to give some shimmer, really like how this turned out. 
The paper I used is sadly not in stock anywhere ( I am guessing it has been discontinued), it is Lawn Fawn 12 x 12 Peace Joy Love. 
I resisted adding any sequins etc to these as I thought they didn’t really need it.
I hope you all like the cards, I really do highly recommend the set to everyone. 
Don’t forget to check out the challenge
Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting
