This week I’m participating in the “As You See It” Challenge. These weekly challenges are meant to inspire creativity and encourage participants to interpret the theme as they wish. Anyone is welcome to participate!

This week’s theme is “Elements of Three”, meaning that all participants need to have three of “something” on their card. And to make it more fun, it’s a speed challenge, with only ten minutes to complete the card! No time to go back and re-create anything if it doesn’t turn out the way you imagined … just COMMIT and keep moving forward!

For my card, I knew I wanted to use the Forever Fern stamp set (my first time inking up this set!), and I knew I wanted to use bright, unexpected colours. I got my inkpads and cardstock ready, then started the timer and hoped for the best … and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!

I just love the textured look of these Distinktive stamps, don’t you? And I had just enough time to add some speckles on the card front and the sentiment, after punching it out with my Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch. My time to complete this card was 9:39 (whew!).

I hope you enjoyed my project! Don’t forget to click on the image below so you can visit the other blogs and see their “elements of three” projects. If you like my project, you can see the products I used in the shopping list at the bottom of the post.

I’m so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight event for September 2019. The theme is Encouragement.

This card is for my dad. When I was growing up, we spent a lot of time in a beautiful, relaxing location just like this. I hope this card reminds him of those good memories we built together!

I used a few different stamps to create my card. The Birch background stamp is one of my recent favourites – it’s so quick and easy to create a striking background on any project. Then I created the lakeside scene using the Waterfront stamp set. This is such a beautifully versatile stamp set, where you can create any scene you can imagine! Finally, I added an image from A Good Man, coloured in with my Blends markers and then cut out to attach to the card.

I hope you like my project and Vote for my card! You can do so here:


At the end of the voting the top ten winners will get the chance to be part of an international blog hop that will happen at the end of September. I would love to take part in the hop, so I would really appreciate it if you would visit the gallery and vote for my card. Have a look at all the amazing creations in the gallery, because you’ll get to vote for your favourite five projects. I hope mine is one of them!
