Vases of sunshine and love

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown ! What a beautiful palette this week – yellow, light pink, cream and green!

I just bought the new Altenew Vases set – they arrived yesterday so I decided to use them straightaway.

I combined them with some foliage dies and the fabulous mid-century frame die which I really don’t use enough! The sentiment is also by Altenew.

Thanks for stopping by!


A Quick hello card

Hello everyone!

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

I didn’t have much time to make this card so I chose a very quick interpretation of the sketch using a die cut from the Altenew Itty Bitty Branches set and a couple of distress oxide inks. The sentiment is by Karen Burniston.

Easter Bunny in Foliage

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a palette of sage green, purple and cream.

After overthinking my card for this challenge last week, I found this one MUCH easier! Flora and Faura shared their cute bunny die on Instagram earlier this week and I knew that I just had to use him again so that was my starting point! I paired him with a Poppystamps egg frame, Altenew foliage and a few Spellbinders flowers coloured with distress inks! Plus a sentiment from Taylored Expressions! Lots of different brands here! It was so much fun to make!

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 .

Bag of Happy Thoughts

Happy Friyay from a VERY windy London!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of light blue, dark blue, forest green and brown.

Dies from lots of different companies on this one – all coloured with distress inks! I knew I wanted to use my brand new Flat Paper Bag die by Waffle Flower Crafts, and paired it with the Memory Box Flower Cluster die. Once I assembled the images, I knew I needed more greenery so I added a few extra branches from the Altenew Branches and Berries die set.

I then cut a piece of patterned paper using a die from The Greetery’s Nordic Circles and adhered it to my card base before adhering the flower bag image. Finally I added a few Nuvo drops and a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.
