Falling leaves

Hello friends!

It’s going to be a busy day on my blog today as I share some cards I made for challenges that all close today!

First up is my entry for the current Memory Box challenge where the theme is ‘falling leaves’. I used the fabulous palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week – red, yellow and brown to colour the beautiful Jasper Leave die from Memory Box which I cut in half so that the sentiment didn’t cover the leaves!

I wasn’t too sure about the background so simply added some splatters before adhering the die cut and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Bootiful!

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

When I saw the sketch, I thought of my Poppy Stamps Stick Frames die. It didn’t really work exactly with the sketch so I cut up the frames and arranged them separately on my card. The ghosts are from the Friendly Ghosts set by Memory Box and the sentiment is my My Favorite Things.

I embossed the background using a Creative Expressions folder.

Thank you bouquet

Hi Everyone!

I’m popping back with my last post of the day and a second entry in the current Memory Box challenge to use a frame.

I’ve had this idea to use the frame from the brand new Pine Tree Frame die set for a little while and when my Simon Says Stamp Stamptember order arrived on Wednesday, I knew exactly what I wanted to create!

Living outside the US means I generally only order a couple of the collaboration sets each Stamptember. This year, the one that stood out to me was the Memory Box Fresh Cut Bouquet stamp set and it was the only one I ended up buying! I knew it would be a big set but I was still a little surprised by the size of the main image! It was actually a bit daunting to colour but I pulled out my trusty Twinkling H2O paints and got to work.

I cut around a few petals and leaves to partially cut the image with the frame die. I then cut the frame from silver card and adhered it to the bouquet die cut with a foam panel, which I then stuck to my card base.

I added an older Memory Box sentiment and a few gems to finish off the card.

Thank for stopping by!

Awesome die cuts

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

Cecile has created a fabulous sketch for a square card – as I don’t seem to make many square cards, I decided I would stick to the shape of the base card, although I did tweak the shape of the elements!

I used products from so many companies for my take – the die cut frame is from the new Stylish Frame Trio set by Memory Box, the leaves are from Simply Graphic and the sentiment is from the Big Dots sentiments set by Waffle Flower.

I’m also entering this in the current Memory Box challenge to use a frame.

Butterfly mosaic

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge where their 400th anniversary celebrations continue!

I love this week’s 400th sketch…. so many possibilities! In the end, I decided to create a square focal point using the Penny Black Wonky Squares background die which I filled with lots of Nuvo drops. I added the Memory Box Flitter Side Butterfly die and a sentiment from My Favorite Things to complete my take on the sketch.

Thank for stopping by!

Antique leaf

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge where their 400th anniversary celebrations continue!

This week’s sketch was the one used for challenge number 300…. and when I saw it, I thought of a Clearly Besotted die that would work perfectly with the design. But the more I thought about it, the more it felt really familiar…. so I went back and checked – FMS challenge number 300 was in August 2017, after I started playing along with the challenge, and blogging! And of course, I had used that very die back then! My entry is here if you want to check it out!

So, for today’s take, I did something a bit different – controlled ink smooshing instead of two paper panels. Then I added a new die cut – this is the Antique Leaf Label die from Memory Box. I have loved this die for a long time and I’m glad I finally took the plunge and bought it this week! The sentiment is also by Memory Box.

Thank for stopping by!
