Luscious Lavender

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of celery green, sage green, pale pink and plum.

I’ve been wanting to use the Picket Fence Studios Lavender Cover Plate die for some time now and today was the day! I got inky with a couple of dstress oxides to create the background – I used Shabby Shutters and Spun Sugar, but both the colours ended up looking a lot more yellowy tham I had anticipated. I wonder if I should have used Caracked Pistacho and Kitsch Flamingo instead… may play with that combo at some point!

I coloured the foliage with Bundle Sage distress ink and blended Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord for the plum colour.

The sentiment is by Pretty Pink Posh.

Day 3 – 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 3’s inspiration is Day 5, 2015.

For my tag, I decided to use Archana’s inspiration. The stamps I used are by Hero Arts and Penny Black. The pine branches are by Pretty Pink Posh.

Pretty Eggs

 

Hi there!

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

As I’m still on my Easter card drive, I just had to play with my new Pretty Pink Posh Spring Eggs! I decided to use the wonderful Sunny Studios basket stamp to corral the eggs – and then at the last minute, I added a little fun chick (by Simon Says Stamp). The sentiment is also by SSS.

A host of golden daffodils

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown (yellow, salmon/orange, green and white).

Of course when I saw the palette and the inspiration photo, I knew I had to do another daffodil card. This was a labour of love! I used the daffodil border stamp from the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Days set and fussy cut the images. Then I coloured them all in… which took forever! Finally the colouring was done and I was able to layer my images on the card base. I used a Memory Box sentiment to complete my card.

I have had the beautiful Wordsworth poem in my head all weekend, so I wanted to share it here:

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Thanks for stopping by!

Simply Just for you

Hi everyone!

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

I had such fun with this CAS sketch! I used an image from the Pinkfresh Studio Fleur 1 set which I coloured using my Twinkling H2Os. I then die cut a glitter strip, together with a heart strip using a Sugar Pea Designs die.

I added a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
