Flora and Fauna

The Double challenge

Hi everyone!

For my second card of the day, I’m playing along with the ‘double’ challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. This challenge combines colours AND a sketch… and can be quite tricky… but hey, that’s why they are called challenges, isn’t it?

For my card, I used the beautiful Cherry Blossom Wreath by Memory Box, together with a sentiment from the Ton and a stencil by Funky Fossil Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bunny basket

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

Of course, I’m still making Easter cards… I really need to stop making and get them into the post now! For today’s card, I used a sweet bunny from Flora and Fauna, together with the Poppystamps Decorated Folk Eggs and Memory Box Kempsey Basket which I stuck to an oval cut from an ink blended panel. For the background stripes, I used a die from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Chains 1 dies set. The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bottle Brush Tree Trio

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a beautiful colour palette again this week – it has a retro Christmas vibe to me – red, aqua and silver!

I always struggle a bit with aqua and often feel I go either too green or too blue. Today I have ended up on the bluer end of that spectrum, but it still looks aqua to me, what do you think?

I used my brand new Flora and Fauna Bottle Brush tree die for my card. Yep ANOTHER new tree die, I definitely have a problem with tree dies… no self control! Anyway, I haven’t been able to find this anywhere in the UK so I bought it from Impress Cards and Crafts in Seattle and crossed my fingers! It actually arrived very quickly, which was such a relief!

The tree holders are from a Penny Black set and the sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!
