Peach Blossom

Hello friends!

Next today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has another stunning colour palette this week – pink, peach and green.

To start, I lightly blended some distress ink on my card base and then lifted some ink through a butterfly stencil. Next, I coloured the Frame Builder Botanical Oval die set from Pinkfresh using my Twinkling H2O paints and adhered it to my card base. I adhered a Mama Elephant sentiment to an Avery Elle banner and finally added some Studio Katia gems to complete my card.

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 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.

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

Thanks for stopping by!
