Paper Rose

Honeysuckle Bowl

Hello again everyone!

Next today is my card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

For my take, I used Paper Rose Studio’s Honeysuckle Plant and a bowl from a Sizzix die set, all coloured with distress inks. The sentiment is my Whimsy Stamps.

This was a really interesting sketch to play with and at first I used the die cut bowl to represent the middle strip in the sketch, but I didn’t really like how it looked, but I was much happier when I added that third yellow strip!

Older Simons die cuts

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the sketch challenge hosted by Sunday Stamps.

For my take on the sketch, I started by cutting some patterned paper with a die from Paper Rose’s Track Circle frame set. I then cut two older Simon Says Stamp dies – the Adeline Butterfly and the Calliope Flourish and coloured them with distress inks.

I added a few Nuvo drops to the flower centres, a Sugar Pea Designs sentiment and a few sequins to complete my take.

Day 5 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 5’s inspiration is Day 5, 2019. Click here to see the tag I made then!

This time, I decided to use Amy’s inspiration. The stamps I used are by Reverse Confetti and I used a circle die from Paper Rose.

Little Foliage Circle in Purple

Hi there!

I was struck down with a migraine over the weekend so I haven’t been able to play in all the challenges that I wanted to enter this week. Luckily I was able to squeeze in a bit of crafty time this evening to play along with the beautiful colour challenge over at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I haven’t been able to find a UK supplier for Paper Rose dies, which is so disappointing as they are gorgeous! I managed to pop this fabulous Little Foliage Circle die in my last Simon Says Stamp order a few months ago and today I finally got round to using it. I coloured the die cut with my Twinkling H2Os and layered it onto piece of coloured cardstock – this is much lighter in real life but I can’t quite get the true colour to show up properly in my photo.

The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.
