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.

Bright Chinese Lanterns

Happy Sunday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of blue, orange, cream and kraft.

I’ve noticed that I have been using blue/aqua backgrounds a LOT recently so I was determined that my background would not be blue – instead I sponged some Antique Linen distress ink on my card base and lifted some ink using water droplets. Next, I cut my Poppystamps Chinese Lantern die from some kraft card and coloured the lanterns using distress oxide ink and Prismacolour pencils. I used the mason jar from the My Favorite Things Farmhouse Foundations die set to cut some blue patterned paper and adhered my die cuts to the card base. Finally I added a Hero Arts sentiment.

Fern and Daisy Card

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge where the palette this week is pink, coral, dark purple and green.

I had fun getting inky and creating a few distress oxide panels for this combo! I also used a colour burst shimmer powder for the purple accents.

All the images are from the beautiful Poppystamps Fern and Daisy die set and the sentiment is by Creative Expressions.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 24

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 24 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Once again this month, I’m doing something I rarely seem to do – sharing a card that I created without a challenge in mind!

I started by using the fabulous Sizzix 3D Christmas Trees folder. I think this is one of my favourite Christmas folders! I love the detail and all the quirky little trees!

For the focal point tree, I used an older Poppystamps die to cut the tree from white cardstock and then embossed it using a folder that I’d brayered with Rustic Wilderness distress oxide ink. I added some stickles over the white embossing.

The sentiment is from a set by My Favorite Things.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 23

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 23 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Add Ink sketch challenge.

I picked up a few 3D embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp a few weeks ago and they arrived yesterday – I couldn’t wait to play with them! The thing is, they are just so beautiful, I can never bring myself to cover up the embossing! So today’s card is pretty simple – the Christmas Floral embossing folder is the star and die cuts by Poppystamps, Savvy Stamps and Simply Graphic make up the supporting cast!

Thanks for stopping by!
