Simply Graphic

Nordic Trio

Hello everyone!

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

When I saw the sketch, I thought of some Marianne Designs dies that I got early last year – the set included a couple of test tube dies that I really wanted but somehow I never got round to using them!

Anyway, I cut the tubes from vellum and then came the challenge of choosing stems! My original planned flowers didn’t work – I think it’s because the tubes are close together. In the end, I used these wonderful Nordic Trio dies from Simply Graphic – I  think they work well with the layout of the tubes!

I added a sentiment by Memory Box and a few gems to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

You’re sealiously amazing

Hello  everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the CAS challenge at The Paper Players.

The theme is wildlife – I have a LOT of older Hero Arts animal colour layering stamps that would have been perfect for this challenge but I kept thinking of this beautiful Simply Graphic seal die so I HAD to use it! I paired it with an Ellen Hutson background die and slipped an ink blended background behind it.

To complete my take, I added a sentiment by Reverse Confetti and a few die cut stars.

Jeu de l’Avent 2021 – 24

Hello everyone!

My last post of the day is for my final Simply Graphic challenge card – made for Day 24 of their advent challenge,

Another colour combo challenge! The palette was kraft, pink and red and so I pulled out my SG dies and got busy! The sentiment is from Mama Elephant as I don’t have any Simply Graphic sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by!

Jeu de l’Avent 2021 – 14

Hello everyone!

Next up today is the card I made for Day 14 of Simply Graphic’s advent challenge!

A really interesting challenge this one – to include other material in the card! When I first started crafting, I bought a LOT of embellishments online and I still have quite a few of them, so I decided that my material would be metal as I wanted to include a metal Christmas tree. As I was getting said embellishment, I spotted an old packet of material from Junkitz (remember them??!!) so added that into my design. I chose a couple of SG die cuts as well and added a Penny Black sentiment to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!

Jeu de l’Avent 2021 – 02

Hello everyone!

Today I’m sharing the final four cards I made for Simply Graphic’s advent challenge. I completed 12 out of 24 challenges in the end and it became surprisingly difficult because I don’t have THAT many SG Christmas supplies. Anyway, first up today is the card I made for Day 2.

It was the first colour combo challenge – light grey, dark grey, red, black and white. I used my favourite SG Christmas tree and Bazzill Bling cardstock plus a little bit of glitter cardstock. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant as I don’t have any Simply Graphic sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by!
