Birthday

Birthday circle

Hello Everyone!

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

When I saw the sketch, I decided it would be perfect for the die fleur double by Simply Graphic! So I chose a couple of pieces of card and got crafty! I stencilled some Nuvo Moonstone paste on my card base and added a Memory Box sentiment plus a few gems to complete my take.

Blue and Tan Floating butterflies

Hi there!

Today is the day of butterflies I think! First up is a card that I made earlier in the week but I ran out of time to blog! Fortunately, I remembered it before the Color Hues challenge deadline!

I started by creating an inky panel using Prize Ribbon distress ink. I then cut it using Memory Box’s Floating Butterflies Background die. I adhered the Floating Butterflies outline die on top. Then I smooched some Brushed Corduroy distress ink onto my card base and stencilled some moonstone Nuvo glimmer paste on top. When it was dry, I adhered the butterflies and added some stickles to them. Finally I stamped a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pastel birthday wishes

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge where the twist is pastels.

I’ve been wanting to use my beautiful Cherry Blossom Darice folder again this spring but haven’t got around to it – until now! I created an inky panel using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink and embossed it. I added some stickles into the centre of the flowers.

I added a sprig from Spellbinders’ Be Bold Blooms die set and a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Embracing Plaid

Hello again Everyone!

So I wasn’t going to play along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge this past fortnight as the twist is plaid. I don’t have much plaid patterned paper and couldn’t think of a ‘LucieG’ way of using it! Then this evening inspiration struck! Luckily there were still a few hours before the challenge closed and this was a really quick make!

I used the Stampin’ Up Brick and Mortar embossing folder and added the Simon Says Stamp Stars Parade die cut. I inlaid plaid, green and glitter stars and then added a little My Favorite Things sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Branch

Hi there!

So, today’s card was intended for the Time Out Birthday challenge but sadly I got the closing time wrong!

I used my fabulous new Waffle Flower Crafts Geometric Cover Plate on the card base and added some Stickles.

The branch is from Altenew’s Weekend Doodle set  and coloured with my Twinkling H2Os.

The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs .

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Stars

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the CAS on Friday challenge where the theme is ‘male’.

I often use greens and blues for male cards, but today I decided to use a different colour palette and used an older Simon Says Stamp background die (called Stacked Stars) to cut a panel I’d created with Color Bursts.

I added a few extra die cut stars and a sentiment by Hero Arts to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
