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.

Vase of Turquoise Berries

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge  where the combo is red, turquoise, green and grey) using Altenew products.

I cut the large berry branch from the Branches and Berries die set and as I wanted to do something a bit different with the combo, I decided to just colour the berries with my Twinkling H2O paints! Next I cut a vase from the Mantel Decor – Spring Die Set and coloured it with some distress ink. That just left green and grey to incorporate…. I used a circle mask and lightly blended mowed lawn distress ink and then added a couple of thin circle frames from the Fine Frames Circle die. The sentiment is from the Helftone Hearts stamp set.

I’m also going to share this on the Altenew Ultimate Challeng Blog Hop link up.
