Can You Handle The Pressure?

Well, what a very apt title !!!!

I first started creating cards way back in 2010 and did so for several years making wonderful friends along the way. I took a break for a few years due to ill health, life, and lack of time. I continued to make cards but just didn’t post them. I recently looked back at those early days through my blog there were so many wonderful memories and loads and loads of my terrible cards !! What really stood out were the friendships and laughter shared with crafty friends so……. I have decided to give it another go and Can You Handle the Pressure just so happens to be the name of the challenge blog !!!!!! so let’s see if I can.

Anything Goes Embossing With A Twist of THINK SPRING

A simple card using the Fabulous Altenew 3d embossing folder Decorative Florals. I ran it through my Spellbinders Platinum and used Distress Oxide inks to colour the image which is also beautiful left as is but as the challenge has the twist Think Spring I decided to add some colour. I finished it off with a hot foil sentiment by Yana Smakula which unfortunately doesn’t show up well in the photo,a little gem a Spellbinders frame and there it is!

Do pop over to Can You Handle The Pressure and check out the DT and their fantastic creations,I’m so glad I’ve found a challenge for embossing folders I’ve got loads of the blighters !

Till then ,take care.

Anything Goes With Dies

Well it’s been an absolute age since I entered a challenge but after seeing what’s going on over at Happy Little Stampers I decided to take the plunge.

I chose to use one of my most favourite die sets by birch press designs called Regal Peacock.

There are four layers plus the body which means the possibilities are endless and I’ve made many a card using different colours and textures.

For this particular one I used mirror card and glitter foam.

For the background I used a variety of distress oxides and made a frame using spellbinder dies.

There are some amazing cards in the gallery at Happy Little stampers and the Design team have outdone themselves.

I do hope you are all keeping well during these difficult times and look forward to popping by and seeing your creations.

Take care

Marie
