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.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 22

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 22 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

It took me a little while to work out what I wanted to do with this sketch – I toyed with panels of patterned paper and embossed cardstock but in the end, I created my own card front, cutting out three frames and added my homemade patterned paper behind the frame. I created the paper with some unpatterned Basic Grey paper and Picket Fence Studios’ Falling Pinecones stamp. It was a tricky stamp to use – couldn’t get it to stamp consistently. I looked at the image online – it doesn’t look as if the cones are supposed to have a weathered or distress look when stamped but after 4 layers (thank goodness for the MISTI), I called it good enough!

I added a couple of the Poppystamps Mistletoe branches and Nuvo drops plus a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
