AAA Birthday Challenge

 Hello!

We are here with the start of the AAA Birthday Challenge for October and it is a fab photo inspiration this month full of beautiful colours and autumnal imagery....


Simply create a birthday card which is inspired by some aspect of this picture to play along with us!

I decided to create a card based on the pumpkin tucked at the back and used our pumpkin trio stencil to make this:


I simply inked through the stencil and added some pencil shading before adding some gold splatters.

I hope that you like it and check out the rest of ideas from the DT - there are so many directions that you can go in with this photo!

You have until 1 November to join in.




Thanks as always for stopping by,

National Coffee Day Blog Hop!

 Hello!

Thank you for joining us on this fab hop to celebrate national coffee day :)  The hop starts at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers page and you won't want to miss any of the fun stops along the way!  

As one of the hop sponsors, Funky Fossil is offering a £25 voucher to our store to one comment left on this post which will be picked at random when the hop closes at midnight on Tuesday, 6 October.

We are also offering 10% off everything in store while the hop is live when you use the code FFCOFFEE10 at checkout :)

We have recently released a stamp set called Time for Tea which features doodle style tea and coffee pots and cups so that seemed like the perfect set to go to for National Coffee Day.....


I have simply stamped and masked the two coffee pots before adding some coffee bean stencilling behind them.  The sentiment is from Altenew.


I have added one of the cute snails from our Snail Mail stamp set to one of the tea cups for this sweet card :)


I added our Confetti Hearts stencil to the cardbase and to the tea on this fun design.

Here is our Time for Tea stamp set:

September Stamp Release - Introducing Time for Tea

 Hello!

We are on to our second day of introducing the five new stamp sets that will be released for sale on Saturday this week!  Today is an A6 stamp set featuring quirky teapots and tea cups which will be great for all of those tea and coffee lovers out there!

Here are a few examples of what I have made with them:


I've created a stack of cups with a bit of masking and combined the stamps with our Knitted Background stencil.


I used our Floral Background stencil to create the heart on this card. 

I do love these stamps - they are so cute to work with :) The rest of the DT have also got great designs to share with you using this set:


Here is the stamp set:



I hope you will stop by again tomorrow when we introduce our third set from the release :)

September Stamp Release - Introducing Silly Snowmen

 Hello!

I am always excited (and a bit nervous) to share our new stamps with you :)  We have five fab new stamp sets which will be available to buy from Saturday this week and I will be sharing a new set with you each day this week.  Today's stamp set is christmas themed and features fun snowmen illustrations by Natalya Skripko.

Here are a couple of cards that I have made with the set:


Of course I had to put one of the snowmen in our snowglobe stencil and make a shaker card!  The scandi snowflakes are in the background and one of our mdf snowflake embellishments was added to complete the design.

I shall link this card up at Time Out where the theme is Season :)


I combined each of our snowmen with our Let It Snow paper pad to create this slimline card.

I hope you like these cheeky characters!  They are sure to make you smile :)  The lovely DT also have been busy making designs with the new stamps - check out their inspiration on their blogs, insta and Facebook:

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope that you come back tomorrow when I will have another set to show you.

Have a great day!

AAA Birthday Challenge #17

 Hello!

It is time for our next monthly challenge over at AAA Birthday!  This month's challenge theme is lots of fun ......


As we are in September and it feels as if autumn is just around the corner I decided to create an autumnal card with our Quick Brown Fox stamp set and new Pumpkin Trio stencil.



I simply stamped and masked the fox before inking up the large pumpkin.  The foliage comes from our Meadow Flowers stamp set.

What critters will you use to create birthday cards this month?  The fab DT over at AAA Birthday Challenge have lots of inspiration to get you started.

I will also link up at Time Out where the theme is Season - I haven't played along for ages but this autumnal card works so well :)

Thanks for stopping by,

AAA Birthday Challenge

Hello!

We are already in to August....it has been such a topsy turvy year that I am losing track of time :)  However, a new month brings a new AAA Birthday Challenge and this month we have a Tic Tac Toe challenge to get you inspired:



I have gone for the top line - Bright, Embossing and Masculine to make this card:


I have used our new Gamer Stamp set - heat embossing the headphones, along with our Distressed Elements stamps and Splatters stencil.  I went with a colour scheme of Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Mermaid Lagoon to keep the card zingy!

Which of the rows will you go for to create your birthday card this month?

Thank you for stopping by,

Sarah x
