The Heat Is On!

Wow, I can't believe it's August already! This summer has just flown by.

A new month means a new challenge over at Poppystamps. The theme this month is The Heat Is On. We're looking for projects having to do with the heat of summer and/or incorporating the colours of red, orange and yellow.

I made a fun card with my fox ready to take a dive into the water to cool off!


I watercoloured everything on my card and love how vibrant the background came out!


I used a couple of new dies on this card, the Celebration Balloons and the whimsical Scribble Clouds.

You have all month to play along with the challenge and there will be some goodies up for grabs. Please check out all the details here.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving me comments!

Runway Inspired

I managed to find some time to play along with the current Runway Inspired Challenge. It's been ages since I've joined in and I had a blast with the inspiration photo.

I was inspired by the geometric pattern and that you could see through the dress.


For the background I applied Squeezed Lemonade and Abandonned Coral Distress Inks through the Heidi Swapp Fence Stencil. I cleaned off the stencil, placed it back on the design and applied Translucent Embossing Paste on top. This paste dries clear so the colours beneath are still visible.



I die cut Paper Smooches Roses Die and Leaves from black card stock and backed them with vellum so the background design would still be visible.

I finished off with a sentiment from the Altenew Label Love set and a few enamel dots.

You can see the shine and texture from the embossing paste in this photo.



I'm also entering this card in Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes Challenge.

Sparkle & Shine

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
I have a wedding card today for the Simon Says Stamp Sparkle and Shine Challenge.


I used the Penny Black Alluring Stencil with Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes in Aurora Lights for the background. Just sponge the Cosmic Shimmer Glue through the stencil, let it get tacky and apply the Gilding Flakes on top.  It's easy and elegant and I love the metallic shine!


The frame is from Paper Smooches Fancy Frames Icons and was cut from gold glitter paper.


The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and was heat embossed with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder and I used silk ribbon to attach the frame to the background.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
