Backyard floral stems

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

I ordered a few dies from Bumbleberrys last week as soon as they received the latest release from the Memory Box family. I really loved the new Backyard Floral Stems die and it was so much fun to play with today. I added it to a background that I had embossed with a bargain Spellbinders folder that I picked up in their sale a few weeks ago.

Good vibes butterfly

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

I decided to go with a butterfly theme for my take on the sketch. I started off with some stamped butterflies, but I couldn’t get them to work in the way I’d envisaged. So I pivoted! I decided that the beautiful Memory Box Butterfly Vine die would be the focal point and used a circle of patterned paper for the second shape.

I masked off a section of my card base and used the Penny Black Script stamp (40-470) * for the horizontal strip and added the die cuts on top. Finally I added a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp set to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Snowflake Josefina Butterfly

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘let it snow’.¬† Can you believe I started working on this card at the beginning of January and only just got round to assembling it! This month has flown by!

I took a slightly different approach to my card and used the Snowflake Screen with the Josefina Butterfly dies to create a snowflake butterfly! I used an old inky panel for the snowflakes and cut the butterfly from vellum before adhering and then trimming the snowflake screen to size. The butterfly body is from Birch Press Design’s Butterfly Basics set.

I wanted to use this fabulous Memory Box embossing folder for my card base but felt that the butterfly needed a little something to ground it so added some silvery thread and a few sequins. The sentiment is by Memory Box.

Warmest wishes flourish

 

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!

As I get back into a cardmaking routine, I knew I wanted to make time to play along with the 500th challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. Congrats to the team for such an amazing milestone – and thank you to the various DT members for a decade of inspiration, encouragement and support!

We could choose any past challenge and add a seasonal twist. So, I made a wintery card with the sketch from Challenge Number 497!

First of all, I applied some distress collage medium to my card base and then added several different glitters. While that dried, I cut the beautiful Elegant Snowflake Flourish die by Memory Box from glitter card and white card and stuck the layers together. Once the glitter background was dry, I adhered the die cut to my card base and added a sentiment by My Favorite Things.

Copper snow

Happy Monday everyone!

I had a couple of hours free this evening so I finally got round to joining a couple of challenges again! I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using the unusual colour combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.

I knew I wanted to use a copper and black background and originally planned to stencil some copper paste onto my card base. As time was not on my side, I decided that using a background die may be quicker – and it was! I chose an older background die by Hero Arts which I stuck onto some copper cardstock. I decided to use the Antique Pine Label die by Memory box as my focal image which I coloured with bundled sage distress ink. The green looks so light in the photos, but it’s darker in real life! Sometimes I find taking the photos so stressful!

Anyway, to complete my card, I stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment onto some kraft card and added a few kraft snowflakes and dots.

A Mustard Sunflower

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using the fab colour combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.

I chose some Stampin Up paper from my patterned paper mountain and added a flower and leaves from The Greetery’s Sunflower Botanicuts die set, which I cut from some panels I’d made from distress spray stains some time ago. You would not believe how long I spent playing with the position of the leaves!! Anyway, I still felt it needed a little something extra so I added some Memory Box stems cut from vellum.

Finally I added a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
