Sweetest die cut bundle

 

 

Hi Everyone!

Happy Thursday! Today I’m playing along with the Case This Sketch Challenge

I adhered three Simply Graphic die cuts to a panel I had embossed with a Taylored Expressions embossing folder and then added a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my take.

AAA One Layer Butterfly and Bud

Hi there!

A new challenge starts today over at the AAA Cards challenge blog – this fortnight, we’re challenging you to create a CAS one-layer card. We’ve included a wonderful photo which you could use as inspiration. Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

One layer to me equals stamping. When I looked at the photo, my immediate thought was AMAZING BUTTERFLY… and then I saw how he had landed on an opening flower. I loved the idea of creating a card with a bud and butterfly. My Altenew Botanical Garden set had both, so I got to work. I used a Taylored Expressions mask to create the oval window and added a sentiment from Altenew.

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, Joanna, who has some lovely cards on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Peony Delight

Hi Everyone!

Happy Saturday! It’s raining here today which is a great excuse to get crafty and ignore absolutely all my chores, not just the garden ones! I decided to play along with the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and combine it with the current Color Throwdown challenge (red, orange and green).

I used a couple of older dies from Poppystamps releases in 2016 – the Peony Delight die (coloured with Twinkling H2Os) and the Daphne Butterfly (cut from vellum). The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

I’m also adding this to the June Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘clean and simple’.

Thank for stopping by!

With Love Bird

Hello Everyone!

I can’t believe it’s June already can you? Sometimes the days are very slow, but actually the weeks seem to fly by!

I had a little bit of spare time today so decided to play along with the current Color Throwdown challenge (turquoise, black and white) and the fabulous sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I used a bird die from My Favorite Things Birds of a Feather set and paired it with a MFT rose die and a Simply Graphic branch die. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Thank for stopping by!

Winged Things

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with another challenge by a favourite company, Poppystamps.

The theme for the May Poppystamps Challenge is ‘winged things’, so I went through all my butterfly dies before finally settling on the Emelia Butterfly trio set. I cut the butterflies from an ink blended panel I created a few weeks ago and added them to a card base I created from another inked background panel and a background die from Frantic Stamper. I added a sentiment by Clearly Besotted to complete my card.

Thank for stopping by!
