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 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!

Double Flower

Hello everyone!

Today I’m using the colour palette from this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

I knew I wanted to us my new ‘Die Fleur Double’ by Simply Graphic as my focal point so I started with that and adhered it to a die cut circle. I was going to add some foliage in the soft suede challenge colour but everything I tried detracted from the beautiful flower die. So in the end, I die cut the background with another Simply Graphic die and added some card to the back of my card base to fill in the dots!

I added a few gems and a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
