First Challenge of 2017

with 3 Comments

Welcome to the first challenge of 2017 at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog! This challenge is an “Anything Goes” theme, so be sure to create whatever your heart desires. This week I created a winter scene and kept all of the fun on the inside of the card, and wanted it to appear like a Pop-up card. The stamp set I featured is the “Joy to the Woods” set by Lawn Fawn.


Some other items that I used to create this card include Distress Inks, and blending tools. I splattered some white watercolour paint overtop to appear like snow. I also used the Lawn Fawn “Bah Humbug” stamp set for my “warm winter wishes” sentiment, and “Let it Snow” is from Pretty Pink and Posh’s “Winter Bird Friend”. The colouring of the critters was done with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Sweet little baby card

with No Comments

Welcome! I am here with a adorable and super colourful baby shower card! I love that I didn’t have to do very much colouring with this card (since I am not very talented in that department). The only thing coloured is the little bear. I used the Wplus9 stamp set “Going Places” and the coordinating die set. The balloons are a die from Mama Elephant and I used a different shade of blue cardstock, along with the same green that I used for the grass. For the grass hill I used a die from My Favorite Things called “Snow Drifts“. The stamped words are from Altenew Baby Zoo stamp set.

I dressed up the envelope as well, and I just love this colour scheme! So cute for a boy!

New Years Celebration Shaker Card

with 1 Comment


Happy New Year !

Thank you to everyone who has supported me this year! 2016 Has been such a great year! This was my first year having a blog, which was definitely an interesting experience, and I can’t wait for what 2017 has in store! Now onto my New Years Shaker Card!

This card was actually very simple to make with only a few ‘ingredients’ needed. The New Years Eve confetti I found at a local Dollarama, and then I used some gold glitter paper from American Crafts, and some Simon Says Stamp cardstock.

I cut out my shaker window with My Favorite Things Scalloped Circle Dies, and I used scalloped border die to cut out the navy cardstock. A clear piece of acetate was placed behind the gold glitter paper to act as a window, and foam adhesive was placed all around the outside border of the circle. I doubled up the foam adhesive so I had a nice big space for the confetti inside the window. Once the confetti was placed inside, all that was left was to glue it all together, and decorate the front!

I heat embossed 2017 with Ranger gold heat embossing powder, and the 2017 stamp is from Altenew Calligraphy Alpha set.



Thank you for checking out my celebration card! I wish everyone a Happy New Year’s Eve, and a fabulous 2017!!

I have entered this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ‘Anything Goes’

Getting holiday ready!

Hi! I am a little late posting this card for the Aud Sentiments challenge, but better late than never! This weeks sponsor is the Paper Shelter! 

I love the cute little Santa with his reindeer, and I am so glad I got to use this digital stamp! Here is the card that I made :



I used my red distress ink to create the red cardstock, and out that overtop of my image to create a circle frame. Gold glitter tape down the left side of the card really added some fun, along with the gold sequins. I used Spectrum Noir markers to colour my image.

Christmas is definitely a busy time of year, hopefully everyone can have some time to themselves to craft!

Happy Halloween!

with No Comments

Hey everyone! I am wishing you all a happy Halloween filled with lots of chocolate and candy! For this week’s challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog, we made a ‘Cute’ card using images from our sponsor at Bugaboo Stamps.

I used the ‘Sillouette – happy halloween cat’ stamp and you can find it here.


To create this card, I cut out a stitched circle as near to the inside border of the stamp as I could. I used the Simon Says Stamp stitched border circle dies. I then did some Distress Ink Blending using orange and black on the outside top layer, and some blue and black on that inside circle. The fence was cut from black card stock using a Pretty Pink and Posh fence die cut. The two little bats and the BOO! are confetti that I had bought from Michaels last Halloween! They come in handy and allowed the card to look a little bit more fun!

This was a quick and easy card, which is super reproducible. These digital stamps from Bugaboo stamps are so versatile and easy to use. I highly recommend them! Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check out the challenge blog for all of the inspiration!


Halloween is near!!

with No Comments





Hello all! I have created a card for the Lawnscaping Challenge! The ‘happy halloween’ stamp is a Digital Stamp from Bugaboo Stamps. I have created a shaker card and filled it with black and purple bats! I used black, and purple distress inks and blended them together. Sooo creepy! But to top it off, I used a kitty from MY Favorite Things. The mask I found on the internet and shrunk it to fit my cats face, and added some googly eyes over top to really make those eyes POP! The pumpkins were some clip art from the internet. Who knew all the cool images you could use from the internet!

Isn’t it boo-ti-ful!


Here is a closer look!

New Challenge #166 ‘Vintage’ plus a Sentiment

with No Comments

Hello everyone, this is a post for the new challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. The theme this week is to create a ‘Vintage card plus a sentiment’. I hope you join in on the fun!



The sponsor for this weeks’ challenge is My Artistic Adventure. The image that I used is called Beautiful Vintage Framed Woman and you can get it here.

I made a few different designs this week, and I wasn’t sure which one I loved more, so I decided to share them all!


The digital paper comes with four different framed women. To make this card I enlarged the size of the frames, and printed it onto some heavy weight cardstock. I fussy cut around the edges and then used some distress inks to try to remove any white showing on the edge of the frame. The distressed vintage paper background was created with Distress inks in walnut stain, antique linen and vintage photo. The roses are from Altenew called ‘Vintage Roses’ and they were stamped with three color theory inks called Poppy, Well Red, and Brick House. The thank you sentiment is from the digital paper pack, from My Artistic Adventure.


This image shows exactly how the four framed women come on the paper without any manipulation. This was easy to print off, and die cut with a stitched border and apply distress inks. The sentiment paper this time I also blended the inks on to make sure all of the papers matched.


For my last vintage card I went in search of a doily to really add some texture. All I had on hand were heart shaped doilies, so I had to cut it and attach it together, which I am hoping you cannot tell on the card! This card might be my favourite because of how feminine it looks. I used the same vintage rose stamp from Altenew, and the same three Distress Inks.

I hope you enjoyed my cards for the challenge today, and be sure to check out the challenge blog here, and My Artistic Adventures here.

See you in a few weeks for another challenge!
