Colourful crocus card

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along the Color Throwdown which has a fabulous palette of mustard, pink and green! Perfect for a flowery card.

After playing around with daisies, I landed on The Greetery’s crocus die set which I coloured with regular distress inks. I cut a circle from a panel using a die by Penny Black adhered it to a card base that I’d inked up. To complete my card I added a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment and a few Memory Box butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by!

You have my heart

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using products by Penny Black.

I used a few distress inks to create a blended rainbow panel which I cut three times with the Heart String die (51-022). The sentiment is from the Warm My Heart mini set (30-895)*.

All you need is… smiles and hugs

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with some old and newer products from Penny Black. I started by heat embossing the All you need…. cling stamp (40-092) and blending Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky distress ink over it. I then cut the heart frame using a die from the Lovely Border die set (51-484). I added a butterfly from the Flourish and Butterflies set (51-198) and little birds from the Nestlings set (51-755)*. The sentiment is from the Banner sentiments (30-423)*.

Snowflake Josefina Butterfly

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘let it snow’.¬† Can you believe I started working on this card at the beginning of January and only just got round to assembling it! This month has flown by!

I took a slightly different approach to my card and used the Snowflake Screen with the Josefina Butterfly dies to create a snowflake butterfly! I used an old inky panel for the snowflakes and cut the butterfly from vellum before adhering and then trimming the snowflake screen to size. The butterfly body is from Birch Press Design’s Butterfly Basics set.

I wanted to use this fabulous Memory Box embossing folder for my card base but felt that the butterfly needed a little something to ground it so added some silvery thread and a few sequins. The sentiment is by Memory Box.

Distress watercolour flower garden

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

All older Hero Arts products today! I used the beautiful Flower Garden Fancy die which I coloured using my brand new distress watercolour pencils. I definitely need to practice more with them!

For the strip, I used a stamp from one of my older wood-mounted sets. I had to join up the stamped ribbon to make the strip a little longer. I’ll admit it took me a couple of attempts, but I got there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello with stitched burst background

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along the Color Throwdown which has a fabulous palette of is grey. navy and white.

I didn’t own any stitching dies until a few weeks ago when I spotted this beautiful background die in the Spellbinders sale. When I saw the combo, I just had to try it out – luckily I had some grey thread to hand!

I adhered the stitched panel to a white card base and chose a shadow sentiment to add a bit more white to my creation! The die is by Birch Press Design.

Thanks for stopping by!
