Joy to You

Today I thought that I would share one of the card designs which I made for the Caring Hearts Christmas Card drive 2017 which features the Concord & 9th Joyful Noel die set. I have decided to post the card on the Concord & 9th #15 card challenge, Christmas.


I had fun creating a sparkling embossing paste background, watercoloured letters and lots of sparkle with die cut glitter card, Studio Katia sparkling crystals and Wink of Stella clear brush pen.

Concord & 9th Grateful for You

Today I am delighted to be back in my studio after what seems a very long absence dealing with some significant personal challenges. I have been so inspired by the Concord & 9th Challenge #14, Shades of Concord & 9th.


Firstly, their corporate colours so remind me of my “tropical beach happy place”- azure blue skies and aqua tropical waters, secondly I received this gorgeous grateful for you stamp thank you gift with my purchases in their store last month. Here’s what I created.


I used Tim Holtz distress oxides for my background, gold heat embossing of the Concord & 9th Grateful for You stamp, some colouring of the flowers and leaves with gel pens and of course some sequins to add some sparkle.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you find many things to be grateful for in your life today.
