Simply Graphic

A challenging combo

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with¬†the Color Throwdown ! Now I have to confess that the palette was very challenging to me. I’m not sure why… maybe the graphic… maybe just the combo… I really struggled with the aqua as I usually choose a lighter shade when using that colour… but in the end, I stopped overthinking it and just used Peacock Feathers which looked close to the colour in the graphic!

I didn’t like the card I made yesterday so I redid something more ‘me’ after work this evening – I’m glad the challenge doesn’t close until 11pm UK time! I used a vase stamp by Stampin’ Up, stems from Simply Graphic and a frame by Reverse Confetti. The sentiment is 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!

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 21

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 21 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! It’s the third Thursday of the month and time for Jenn Shurkus’s ‘Get Cracking on Christmas’.

I have to say that the colour challenges are really challenging me this month! Today’ I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge but the palette of yellow, green, aqua and kraft isn’t overly festive….

In the end, I smooshed some Squeezed Lemonade distress ink onto my card base and coloured some Simply Graphic die cuts with distress oxide ink for my non-traditional Christmas card!

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Birthday circle

Hello Everyone!

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

When I saw the sketch, I decided it would be perfect for the die fleur double by Simply Graphic! So I chose a couple of pieces of card and got crafty! I stencilled some Nuvo Moonstone paste on my card base and added a Memory Box sentiment plus a few gems to complete my take.

Les Fleurs Rondes

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at Just Add Ink.

I finally used a stamp from my Sentimentally Yours/Phill Martin textured stamp set that I got last year. The stamps were slightly smaller than i was expecting, but they worked well here I think.

I added a die cut by Simply Graphic (Die Fleurs Rondes) which I coloured with Distress Inks and Twinkling H2O paints. I added some glitter card that went perfectly with my coloured die!

Finally I added a Memory Box sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
