Sweetest die cut bundle

 

 

Hi Everyone!

Happy Thursday! Today I’m playing along with the Case This Sketch Challenge

I adhered three Simply Graphic die cuts to a panel I had embossed with a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and then added a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my take.

Thank for stopping by!

Color Throwdown Fairytale Flower Card

Good morning everyone!

This week, I have the honour of being the Guest Designer over at one of my favourite challenges – the Color Throwdown Challenge.

The palette for this challenge is blue, purple, light blue and green, another fabulous combination, don’t you think?

I’m currently challenging myself to use some of my older, little used dies. I always struggle a bit with border dies – I have MANY pretty ones, but I get stuck trying to incorporate them into different card designs. This card is actually made from the pretty Memory Box Fairytale Flower Border die that I cut and coloured three times and then cut up and arranged to cover half of my card base. The sentiment is by Your Next Stamp.

There’s some amazing inspiration from the Color Throwdown DT over on the challenge blog – I do hope you can play along this week!

I’m also entering this into the current Memory Box challenge where the theme is birthdays.

Thanks for stopping by!

AAA One Layer Butterfly and Bud

Hi there!

A new challenge starts today over at the AAA Cards challenge blog – this fortnight, we’re challenging you to create a CAS one-layer card. We’ve included a wonderful photo which you could use as inspiration. Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

One layer to me equals stamping. When I looked at the photo, my immediate thought was AMAZING BUTTERFLY… and then I saw how he had landed on an opening flower. I loved the idea of creating a card with a bud and butterfly. My Altenew Botanical Garden set had both, so I got to work. I used a Taylored Expressions mask to create the oval window and added a sentiment from Altenew.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Joanna, who has some lovely cards on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Peony Delight

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday! It’s raining here today which is a great excuse to get crafty and ignore absolutely all my chores, not just the garden ones! I decided to play along with the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and combine it with the current Color Throwdown challenge (red, orange and green).

I used a couple of older dies from Poppystamps releases in 2016 – the Peony Delight die (coloured with Twinkling H2Os) and the Daphne Butterfly (cut from vellum). The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

I’m also adding this to the June Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘clean and simple’.

Thank for stopping by!
