Berry collage

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with two challenges – the Color Throwdown (red, light blue, kraft and ivory) and the sketch  from  Freshly Made Sketches.

This card came together very quickly – I cut a Simply Graphic berry die from kraft cardstock and then used Festive Berries distress oxide ink to colour the berries. I die cut different squares from coloured cardstock and layered all the  die cuts on to my card base.

The sentiment is from a Sugar Pea Designs set.

Smiles and Hugs

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches using products from Penny Black.

When I saw the colour combo, I immediately thought of using the greys with one of my favourite Penny Black dies – the Wonky Squares background die (51-424). I created two background panels with different grey inks and cut them both with the die, using the frame/outline from the darker panel and inlaying the shapes from the lighter panel.

I then die cut a couple of other inky panels with the Delicate Wings butterfly dies (51-010) and adhered it to my card. I cut the body section again using grey cardstock.  The stamped sentiment is from the Banner Sentiments set (30-423).

Peach Blossom

Hello friends!

Next today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has another stunning colour palette this week – pink, peach and green.

To start, I lightly blended some distress ink on my card base and then lifted some ink through a butterfly stencil. Next, I coloured the Frame Builder Botanical Oval die set from Pinkfresh using my Twinkling H2O paints and adhered it to my card base. I adhered a Mama Elephant sentiment to an Avery Elle banner and finally added some Studio Katia gems to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Leafy Best wishes

Happy Friyay Friends!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches using products from Penny Black.

This simple CAS card came together so quickly! I cut the fabulous Viridescent leaf die (51-650) from some patterned paper and adhered some of the leaf centre elements back into the leaves using sticky tape. To give my leaf a little more solidity, I adhered it to a second leaf that I’d cut from white card. I then die cut three strips using the wonderful  Geometric Borders (51-196) and adhered them to my card base. I chose to cut them from white cardstock as I wanted to keep the card very clean.

I stamped a sentiment from the Snippets set (30-283) and then die cut it using a tag die from the Tagged dies set (51-007) – I actually shortened the length of the tag using the partial die cutting technique.

Thanks for stopping by!
