We’re having a huge celebration over at Cupcake Inspirations because it is our 500th Challenge! In honour of the occasion we chose the theme of Birthday Celebration, so now is a great time to catch up on making birthday cards. Plus we have 13 sponsors offering 16 prizes between them for a total value of … More CIC 500 | Birthday Celebration – PRIZES | Rachel Vass Designs
School is still in session over at MFT. I’m racing to get my last couple of projects in before the school closes. This card is for day four, which is ‘ombre’. (You can see day one here, day two here, and day three here.) I had a few different ideas in mind when trying to … More Monochromatic Ombre Florals from Snippets | MFT Summer School Submission – Ombre
School is in session over at MFT and I wanted to join in! I’m a few days behind but still have time to play along. Day 1 is ‘visual triangle’, which is a great concept for making striking clean and simple designs. I decided to create a floral card.
We have a new challenge starting today at Cupcake Inspirations, and this time around it is a colour challenge. The colours we are using are blue, yellow and white, and how you use those colours is entirely up to you! I decided to make a floral card for my project. I actually started out with … More CIC 498 | Thankful Flowers | Blue, Yellow and White
I had so much fun playing with my pigment powders for yesterday’s projects that I decided to make use of them again for this card for the Cupcake Inspirations challenge reminder. The theme is flowers with pearls or sequins. We’re also partnering with Double Trouble for this challenge, and they’ve provided a fun tic-tac-toe board … More CIC 497 | Golden Hibiscus | Flowers with Pearls/Sequins
Ready for a new Cupcake Inspirations challenge? We have a theme challenge this week, and we’re looking for cards featuring flowers with the addition of sequins or pearls.

We have a colour challenge starting today at Cupcake Inspirations, with a lovely summery inspiration image. The colours are cyan, tangerine and pink, which lead to a bit of a discussion amongst the team about exactly what cyan looks like. Sometimes more specific colour names can get a bit confusing, right? But don’t worry, no … More CIC 496 | Birthday Sakura | Cyan, Tangerine and Pink
I’ve been all about sharing coffee cards lately, but now that the coffee hop is over I’m going back to other things instead. This evening (a bit later than planned – thanks for your patience!) I’m sharing a bright birthday card that I painted.
It’s crazy to think that I took a two month break from crafting, and now I’ve posted three days in a row – and twice today! Even before I got sick I hadn’t been posting regularly. I certainly seem to have got my mojo back, and I hope it lasts. Yesterday and the day before … More Make A Wish | Bright Lily | Uniko
I timed my return to card making pretty well – I’m just in time for the Coffee Lovers Hop! I always enjoy playing along with this hop. It’s always such a fun time, and Amy is a gem for all the work she puts in to organising it.
