Hi there everyone! It's my turn to provide you some inspiration today over on the karleigh sue inspiration blog, and apologies in advance for a slightly less in depth post than usual- i'm really poorly at the moment awaiting tooth extraction (ewww) and doped up on some serious painkillers!

Therefore i've gone with a CAS layout using 1984 throwback - but I have used the 1987 version which cheri did for me at my pleading... if you would like to buy the version I have used please contact cheri !

I used:

amy tangerine DSP
papermania plain coloured paper in pink
MME washi tape
and some chippie embellishments (heart and arrow)
sentiment is stamped with Lawn Fawn Milo alphabet stamps

I hope you enjoy my card and see you all soon when I'm feeling a little more human!

Santa Selfie

Santa Selfie 

Hi there guys! I've been so, soooooooo busy recently, making a range of christmas cards which will be going to stand at a fair in Norway next month. It has been super fun working with sentiments in a different language, and putting together a lot of cards! I do have to admit, I'm a little christmassed out already though! 

the first of these cards to be showcased here on my blog is this one- using the paper shelter's 'Santa Selfie' 

which is a very fun image!

I coloured the image using copics,

I teamed it with some bright christmas papers,
(docrafts and a couple of scraps from my scraps box)

baked brown sugar stampin up cardstock
red and white twine 
a tiny snowflake diecut
tiny diamante gems
docrafts shimmer dome stickers

Bubblegum heart - karleigh sue

Hi everyone, if all has gone well this is my second post today!
I'm bringing you 'Bubblegum heart' from Karleigh Sue as part of a group inspirational post.

Whilst cheri was mega busy drawing up new images from the store we decided this month to showcase some of the releases that got sneaked into the store between official releases! and there was a few ;)

I chose to use Bubblegum heart to make my card
and the colour sceme? bubble gum pink , of course!

I coloured the image using copics-

BG05,BG07, BG09

I also used My minds eye papers,
spellbinders heart squares nestabilities
and spun sugar distress ink.

the heart embellishments at the corners are some of the negative spaces from the die cuts.

Hope you like my card!
