Lovely Lumina

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with a new colour challenge, Color Hues! The palette is navy and turquoise.

I bought the gorgeous Lumina Layer die set by Birch Press Designs during lockdown and I finally played with it this weekend! Be warned, there will be more posts with this set coming soon!

I loved some of the designs created by Birch Press Design’s Design Team, especially Ardyth’s creations! She created one stunning card using alcohol markers to colour just the middle layer and I used that technique for this card. I adhered the layered stack to some navy cardstock which is a little darker than the navy petals and the Ellen Hutson sentiment is stamped in an Altenew turquoise which is slightly lighter than the turquoise petals. Such a fun card to create!

Water Jug bouquet

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is grey, green. kraft and white – perfect for nature-based cards!

To start, smooshed a little Moss distress ink to the bottom of my card base and then applied texture paste using a stencil by My Favorite Things. While that was drying, I got die cutting with a brand new-to-me Marianne Designs Water Jug die set – seriously, it only landed on my doormat on Friday morning! Love it when I use my new goodies straight away!

The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Autumn Owl

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge. I love the autumnal combo!

I used a couple of Penny Black clear stamp sets – Delicate Flowers and Acorns and Animals and coloured the images using my beloved twinkling H2O paints. To complete my card, I splattered some paint and added a sentiment from a 2018 My Monthly Hero set.

Autumn Fractile Leaves

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with one the Color Throwdown! The palette this week looks like red, yellow, porcelain and brown – very autumnal!

I actually made a tree scene card using these colours yesterday. However, when I went to upload it, I felt that it wasn’t appropriate given the terrible fires engulfing the forests in the western USA. So, today I had a bit of free time and re-did my card using the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Fractile Leaves set plus a background die from The Stamp Market. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

AAA Cards One Third challenge with woodland twist

Hi there!

It’s time for the a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using up to one third of the card base only; our optional twist is ‘woodland animals’! Our sponsor is Craftyscrappers .

For my card, I used an older Cottage Cutz die which I coloured using distress inks. The sentiment is by Woodware.

 

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, Maria, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
