Cardmaking joy

Hi there!

As you’ve probably seen, I usually make cards for challenges, so I often have a starting point like a sketch or colour combo. Yesterday, I wanted to just play with my supplies. So I pulled out my Penny Black supplies and had so much fun!

I started with the bouquet from the Enliven mini stamp set (30-705) and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and Prisma pencils before fussy cutting around the image. That took AGES, but it was worth it. I decided to add some die cut foliage using dies from the Leaflets set (51-129), the Hanging Planters set (51-501) and the Autumn Decor set (51-653).

As I couldn’t see a piece of white card on my table at the time, I was using some black card to collect all my die cut images but I ended up really liking how the black card made the bouquet and die cuts pop! Quite dramatic! So I stepped outside my comfort zone and went with the black card base!

The sentiment is also from the Enliven mini set. I actually cut the stems so that they appear a little longer on my card – the sentiment hides that very nicely!

I REALLY enjoyed making this card. It was so much to to just PLAY and see where I ended up! Cardmaking brings me so much joy!

I decided to link this card up to a couple of challenges with a flower theme – Seize the Birthday (make it a bouquet) and Moving Along with the Times (a bouquet of flowers).

Thanks for stopping by!
