Mojo is back!

My crafting mojo has gone distinctly AWOL recently, but my eyes lit up when I saw this month's new release from Clearly Besotted. I ordered a fair few stamp sets with matching dies & due to the usual swift despatch they arrived in the post today. Here's a card I rustled up this afternoon ...

Thank you Stephanie, I think my mojo is back :)

I'm going to enter this card at Seize the Birthday where the challenge is to make a birthday project.

Reach for the stars

The card I'm sharing with you today is one I made for my sister who starts her new job next week.

I couldn't resist these star stamps & matching dies in the new release last week at Clearly Besotted; the 'reach for the stars' sentiment was just perfect for this card.


The colours were inspired by the Colour challenge at Clearly Besotted ...

... & the sketch at Mojo Monday ...

... with a final little addition from CAS-ual Fridays where the challenge is to include an element that goes over the edge:

Clearly Besotted stamps: Superstar, Geometric Style, Tag Along, Framed Sentiments
Clearly Besotted dies: Superstar, Tag Along
MFT Die-namics die: Tag You're It
Inks: Stampin' Up, Calypso Coral, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi
Cardstock: Craftwork Cards Premium Smooth white
Other: Ribbon - Calypso Coral SU; buttons

Thank you for popping by my blog. Take care x

Little cards of love

I'm back! After a few months absence from blogging I'm back to share some love with you :)
Valentines cards are everywhere in blogland & Pinterest at the moment. This card started out as a Valentine card but I decided to change the sentiment to make it an anniversary card.

Apologies for the photo, daylight had disappeared when I made the card.

I'm entering this card in this month's challenge with Clearly Besotted where the theme is 'Love'.
I'm also hoping it fits in with the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays where the challenge is to use 'blocks of color on your CAS creations' ...

I used a variety of Clearly Besotted's stamps for this card, including the repeat stamping of the small hearts stamp to make the banner across the top of the card. I made little cards for each of the LOVE letters, here's a close up ...

Supplies used:
Stamps: Happy anniversary sentiment from 'Basic Numbers', letters from 'Basic Alphabet', rounded corner square from 'Geometric Style', postage stamp & hearts from 'Post It: Love' - all from Clearly Besotted

Thanks for popping by & taking a look at my creations.
Take care x
