Three Room Studio Challenge - Fall Colours

Hey lovelies, I hope you are all doing ok ? Happy World Cardmaking day. I hope you get to spend sometime creating today.

It's time for a new Three Room Studio Challenge and this weeks theme is Fall/Autumn Colours

The winner will win $15 CAD to spend at the Three Room Studio store. For all the details on the challenge and to check out my amazing teamies click on the image below. 


I really wanted to not do a typical fall colour card and show that the colours can be used all year round and are fab for birthday cards. 

For the main part I used the Rounded Checkerboard stencil with some Distress Oxides in - 

Mustard Seed

Fired Brick 

Carved Pumpkin

The thing I love about this stencil is that you can use it a couple of ways, I stenciled through once and then moved it over and stenciled again so that you have a closer knit pattern. 

I used the YAY! Die set and cut out several times in white card and then once in glitter card, I adhered these together so it gave some nice dimension. 

For the sentiment I used the Simple Sentiments stamp set and stamped the Happy Birthday with clear ink and heat embossed onto some black card. I then adhered this all together and mounted onto some cardstock and added some Studio Katia Gems. 


I really do hope you join us in this weeks challenge, we love seeing all your makes :) There is even some free digis on the Three Room Studio Store you could use


Have a great day and happy crafting.

Hey lovelies, I hope you are all doing ok ?

It's time for a new Three Room Studio Challenge and this weeks theme is Glitter

The winner will win $15 CAD to spend at the Three Room Studio store. For all the details on the challenge and to check out my amazing teamies click on the image below. 



I started off by stamping this beautiful girl from the Believe In Fairies Stamp set and then masking her off and using Distres inks did a lot of blending. 

Once it was dry I coloured her in using Arteza Everblend ultra markers and using white gel pen I added lots of fairy dust. I then added some glitter using a glue pen and Nuvo Glitter Dust. 



I used the welcome winter sentiment from the Welcome Winter stamp set and heat embossed it onto some black card and ofset the strip with some glitter card. I then added foam tape and adhered the whole piece to an A2 card base.

Three Room Studio Challenge - Vellum

 

 Hey lovelies, I hope you are all doing ok and staying safe ? 

It's time for a new Three Room Studio Challenge and this weeks theme is Vellum.

The winner will win $15 CAD to spend at the Three Room Studio store. For all the details on the challenge and to check out my amazing teamies click on the image below. 


For my card this week I did some stencil work using the new Star Ray Quarter Stencil

I used it off the page and rather than doing one corner I did two, and of course I had to use Distress Inks in rainbow colours :) 

I then used the Hooray Die from Yay Die set and cut out multiple times so I could layer them for dimension, for the top one I die cut glitter card for some sparkle. I love this die set because it also cuts a shadow piece which I die cut from vellum. 

To finish the card off I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the YAY stamp set and adhered along the bottom of the card.


I really do hope you join us in this weeks challenge, we love seeing all your makes :) 


Have a great day and happy crafting.

The winner will win $15 CAD to spend at the Three Room Studio store. For all the details on the challenge and to check out my amazing teamies click on the image below. 

Anyone that knows me knows I'm a autumn girl so For my card I have used the brilliant Let's Hygge stamp set  and coloured it with Polychromo pencils and distress inks.

I used an old paper pad for the paper piercing and added some shading to the chair using the pencils. 

I mean I cant wait to bring on the cosy :) 

I wanted to give a fire glow apperence so used Distress inks for that and hopefully thats what I acheived. 


I really do hope you join us in this weeks challenge, we love seeing all your makes :) 

Also the amazing Sandy has now added colour swatch/colouring pratice sheets to her store ! and whats even better is she has included men and woman YAY !

Three Room Studio Challenge Your Favourite Colour

 Hey lovelies, I hope you are all doing ok and staying safe ? 

It's time for a new Three Room Studio Challenge and this weeks theme is your favorite colour. 

The winner will win $15 CAD to spend at the Three Room Studio store. For all the details on the challenge and to check out my amazing teamies click on the image below. 

For my card I have used the brilliant Aww Thanks stamp set and coloured it with Ohuhu Brush Markers. 


 As you can tell I love purple, the strange thing is I hardly use it in card making....anyone else not use their fav colour in cardmaking much ? 

One of the things I love about this stamp set is the sentiments so I added them to the bottom circle and used SSS ink to stamp. 


And of course I couldnt resist using some purple sequins to finish the card off. I really enjoyed creating this card and loved using purple. 

Don't forget to join us in the challenge as we love seeing what you have created. 

Have an amazing day and happy crafting.

Three Room Studio Challenge - Anything Goes / Life update

 Hey lovelies, well it has been a while and I hope youre all doing ok ? 

I'm super excited to be sharing my first post as a design team member for Three Room Studio. IF you havent checked them out then please do, Sandy makes the most AMAZING stamps of all things, but she goes that extra mile to create some perfect scene stamps and also make sure her sets have fab sentiments too. You can check everything out at the store here

This weeks challenge is super easy as it is Anything Goes. The winner will win $15 to spend on the store. 

Please check out the blog for the main post and all the details from this weeks challenge host. 

For my card I just had to use the Awesome Coffee Stamp set. 


 I have used Ohuhu Alcohol markers to color in and just love the extra sparkle stamps in this set. And of course we all know Coffee makes us awesome 👐

I kept the card simplish and added some sequins for that something extra and used Clear Sparkle pen on the centre cup for some extra sparkle. 


The paper pad is one I have had for years and thought it went perfectly. The whole card is A2 sized. 

Please make sure you check out the blog and if youre on Facebook we have an awesome FB group too which can be found here


Just a little life update and why I havent posted so much. We moved home mid covid into our forever home, but it has needed lots of work so Mr Inky has been busy, whilst I supervised of course. But this also lead to me wanting to split my time a lot better. Some of you know that as well as being a crafter I also worked within the Craft Industry and honestly I found it drained my love for crafting so I've been spending sometime getting that love back and honestly I am so glad I did because I really do love crafting. 

I have a fantastic new craft room which is truely me and works so well for me and my needs and I MAY even start creating videos again sometime in the future :) but for now I am just glad to be fully back and creating. 

If anyone is reading this and has stuck around then thank you, it really does mean the world to me that people still visit my little corner of the internet. 

I hope you all have an amazing weekend and hope to see you enter the challenge. 

Take care and happy crafting

I simply love you

 Hey lovelies, how are you all ? I hope 2021 is being kind to you all   

Today I am sharing a card I created for the Studio Katia Blog 


Me and hubs don't tend to do valentines but I think this year we could all do some extra love. 
I created the background using my Mission Gold watercolours and Prima Metallic watercolours and just had lots of fun creating. 

Once fully dry I used the Shaker Heart die to die cut the heart out and also cut it out some Glitter Cardstock from Tonic Studios. 
I then added a sheet of adhesive behind the card and used the inlay technique. 
To finish off I die cut the main panel using Dotted Patterns Set 1 main die
I then adhered the panel to a slightly larger than A2 card and added a strip of glitter card along one side. 
For the sentiment I heat embossed this beautiful sentiment from the Lovely Bloom Stamp set and adhered it through the middle using foam tape. 
I then decided to add some Gold Crystals to add some extra bling and texture to the card. 
I hope you liked the card and I have inspired you to spread some love this Valentines. 
Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have an amazing day. 
Stay Safe and Happy Crafting.
