Butterfly Wreath Hello

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! They have a super colour palette this week – blue, pink and green! The inspiration photo uses bright colours, but I chose a more pastel palette for my take.

I inked up the beautiful Reverse Confetti Butterfly Wreath and coloured it using my Twinkling H20 paints. I cut it out using the coordinating die and adhered a couple of die cut wreaths under my image to provide some depth. I added a few single butterflies from the set and a Mama Elephant die cut to complete my take.

If you enlarge the photos you can make out a very lightly stencilled background. I’m in the throes of organising my stencil mountain and I’m going to try to use more stencils in my designs. I chose a very subtle design here as I didn’t want to overpower that beautiful wreath!

Day 22 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 22 was Erin Lee.  I loved the elegant tag created by Jennifer so I pulled out a Penny Black set for my own take! The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 9 was Pink & Main – they have some super cute stamps but sadly this is another brand which is under represented in my festive supplies!

The inspiration tags were wonderful and Lindsey L’s striking tag really caught my eye. As soon as I saw that blinged-out edging, I knew I had to give it a go! Let me tell you, it was VERY fiddly, but I’m glad I spent the time on this, I just love how sparkly it is!

The llama stamp is by Neat & Tangled and I used another Mama Elephant sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 8 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 8 was Avery Elle. I love Avery Elle stamps and dies and as soon as I saw that Maria Peters had used the Snow Globe set, I knew I had to ink my set up again!!

I decided to use a different colour palette for the night sky – I’ve been seeing the picked raspberry/seedless preserves combo a lot on instagram this year and I really love that vibrant colour!

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant and carefully hides a poorly stamped sentiment on the base of the globe!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 7 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year.

The sponsor for Day 7 was Uniko – they have some fabulous stamps and stencils and the inspiration tags were fabulous! I loved Lindsey L’s stencilled inspiration and used the same stencil, with a smaller colour palette for my tag.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant

Colourful Tall Trees

Happy Friyay everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is kraft, red, green and chartreuse.

I immediately thought of the chartreuse colour burst and knew I had to create a card using that! I created a few inky backgrounds and used the Tall Tree dies from the Stamp Market to cut a few trees. I LOVE this die and was stalking my UK retailer until the die went live on the site and snapped it up straightaway!

I added a few splashes of kraft paint at the tree bases and die cut some kraft stars and dots to add to the sky. The sentiment is stamped in Frayed Burlap distress oxide and is by Mama Elephant.

Thanks for stopping by!
