Hello everyone! First things first, you have just 22 hours left to participate in the Let’s Get Trendy Now! 3 workshop!! Deets HERE.

I thought I’d play along this week’s CASE Study challenge, Lisa’s card will totally get your creative juices flowing! Mine went through the roof I tell ya! LOL I feel very “artsy” and wanted to get inky ASAP!

Here is what I came up with:


I tried to take it up a notch and clear emboss the inked areas plus I added a few pearl dots. Here is a closeup:


This is a local stencil I have had since forever, I love the result it looks super cool! Thanks Lisa for the inspiration! Oh the sentiment is by Verve and it is heat embossed in Gold.

Let’s Get Trendy Now! 3 workshop post HERE – you have a whole month to play along!


Hiya everyone! I thought I’d play along Chupa’s this week’s sketch, I made a card for last challenge as well but never got around to post it.


I don’t usually use a lot of pattern paper on one card so this is a very different style for me, but I absolutely LOVED the sketch.. obviously because of the many layers. I hope you will like it!


Leave a bit of love and I will stop by your blogs. Don’t forget to check out my post of Let’s Get Trendy Now! 3 day 4!! (link at the beginning of the post)

Let’s Get Trendy Now! 3

Hello everyone and welcome to day 3 of Let’s Get Trendy Now! 3 Workshop! Our trend today is Textured Layers. I have something fun to show you today, my regular readers would know that I love texture and I have been itching to make faux mixed media kinda cards… I have done that once in the past but this time I added layers of diecuts (same colour, to add more depth).
Eekk! all that gooey, inky mess! I love it! LOL  You can use gesso or artist grade texture paste to achieve this look.
Here is a close shot of the gorgeous mess.
The shine comes from clear embossing powder, it gives a very finished look and also adds depth to the colour.
I am one of those people who look around the house for stuff to use as “craft supplies”. You can add added texture by using seeds, crushed dried mint leaves (adds a wonderful smell too) ANYTHING! And don’t worry about the ants, once you heat set everything… they wont be attracted to your almost edible project LOL, well no its not edible! Another way to add texture is by layering die cuts on top of another, in this card I have used four layers of dies.
I have one more thing to share with you… a made another series and it fits perfectly with our trend today!
The series here has a different meaning to textured layers! Here are the cards individually:
Well I hope you enjoyed the post, creative juices flowing and all plus I hope you have hit a light bulb moment! I would love to see what you guys come up with! If you have any other questions to ask, ask away!

CAS(E) This Sketch!

Hey everyone! I hope you guys are checking out and playing along at the Let’s Get Trendy Now! workshop. If you have not checked it out, you MUST!! A lot of crafters are sharing awesome tips and latest trends.
I thought I’d play along with the CAS(E) This Sketch.
Trust me when I say that I had to stop myself from adding stuff on the top half of the card! The white space was bothering me so much! I am absolutely not a “true” CAS card maker so this is an achievement. 
Leave a little love and I will stop by your blogs! Do not forget to stop by the Let’s Get Trendy Now blog! Workshop is from 2nd to 7th June!
I will be entering this over at SSS challenge as well.
