SG Anything Goes


Sharing with you my card created for the new challenge at Southern Girls and
if you get a chance please join us!

Our theme: Anything Goes
Our sponsor: Three Button Studio


I have recently been playing with some Alcohol Inks.  I had forgotten how much fun it is just getting messy and trying different colour combinations.

So for my card I have used one of the pieces I created and made a birthday card for my sister.

Here is my card: 



Not only have I used the Alcohol Inks but I also brought out my heating tool and heat embossed the sentiment something I haven't done for ages.

The beautiful die is from the SU Delicate Lace die set.

Here is another look at the card: 


The colours of  the inks is dark but I really like the touch of lighter colours and metallic silver.

The sentiment is from the SU Magnolia Blooms stamp set.

 Have a super day!

Team Blog Hop #7



Hello and welcome to our team blog hop.

You may have arrived at my blog from Nikki's blog where we are starting our blog hop this month.

If not please feel free to have a look at what the team has created, all the links are below.

Our challenge this month is a colour challenge using some of the new In Colors.


I was limited when creating my card as I do not have the new In Color ink pads but I just adore the dies in the Delicate Lace collection, so this is what I used.  

Here is my card:


Lots of layers and a little bling.

I had die cut each layer from a piece of  the In Color cardstock (Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray) and Whisper White.  The layers were adhered to Whisper White cardstock.
The base layer of the card is Pretty Peacock.

The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and I used the Pretty Peacock marker to ink up the words.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White cardstock and layered with some more Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Both pieces have been punched out with the Tailored Tag punch.

Hope you like this little creation.


Please continue on our blog hop by stopping by Melissa's blog and see her inspiration.

Meighan - you are here!


Have a wonderful day!
