Autumn Leaves


Here is my Inspiration for the Autumn Colours challenge over at
Make my Monday challenge.

I've used items from one of my favourite companys Sweet Poppy stencils.
This is the Maple leaf stencil.


I have made the background using distress inks through the stencil and then another layer of ink after the stencil has been removed. Then I have used gold stencil  paste through the stencil and sprinkled glitter over the top. The sentiment is stamped in gold pearlesent ink. This was quite a quick card to make, but really pleased with the end result.

It's a wonderful town



This is my inspiration for the new challenge at  Make my Monday, where the theme this month is New York New York.


I have done a fairly simple card design. I have made the red, white and blue background using distress ink. then I have stenciled over the top using a Clarity stencil and Hickory smoke distress ink. I have added a bit of extra distressing with a embossing ink pen and clear powder. Also a bit of Wink of stellar glitter pen, but they don't show up very well on the photo. The sentiment is from a very famous song and was just typed up by hand and punched out.

Back to School


This is really late for the latest Make my Monday challenge, I have just been so busy covering holidays at work, this is the first chance I have had to put this on.

The theme this time is Back to School.  I think that is easy to see from the card.


I have done quite a simple design. I have used a piece of ordinary school book type paper for the background. I have use a stencil for the ink splats. The ruler is a stamp and coloured with a little distres ink Pumice Stone. I have cut out the stars from a piece of patterned paper. And the words are die cut. A nice quick card for a change for me.
