Floral Harmony

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge.

I recently bought a few older Pink Fresh Studio dies when they were on super sale so I decided to use them for this card. I started by creating a panel with Seedless Preserves distress ink which I cut with the Floral Harmony die. I cut it a second time from white cardstock. I coloured the individual elements with distress inks and inlaid them into the Seedless Preserves oval. I then cut the Ornate Oval Frame from white cardstock and adhered the Floral Harmony oval in the centre.

I used the Spellbinders Embossing Folder of the month (May I think) on my card base and adhered the oval frame on top. After playing with a few sentiments, I decided to leave my card blank. Quite honestly I didn’t want to cover that pretty Floral Harmony at all!

Thanks be bold blooms

Hello Everyone!

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

This card definitely evolved as I was making it and it’s very different from the card I had originally planned! In fact the only item that I kept the same was the panel that I’d embossed with the Spellbinders May 2022 Embossing Folder! I decided to adhere it to a piece of patterned paper and then found the fabulous Be Bold Blooms die cut image in my bits and pieces bowl – it matched the paper I’d chosen so well! I added a few Nuvo Jewel drops and a sentiment by Pretty Pink Posh to complete my card.

Pastel birthday wishes

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the ‘Can You Handle the Pressure‘ challenge where the twist is pastels.

I’ve been wanting to use my beautiful Cherry Blossom Darice folder again this spring but haven’t got around to it – until now! I created an inky panel using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink and embossed it. I added some stickles into the centre of the flowers.

I added a sprig from Spellbinders’ Be Bold Blooms die set and a Pretty Pink Posh sentiment to complete my card.

Be Bold Blooms Color Dare

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the six pack colour challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. I LOVE how this challenge asks you to use one of the colours for the card base – I’m really enjoying making cards with different colour backgrounds right now!

I spent ages matching Bazzill card stock to the challenge colours on my ipad. And then, of course they look so different in the photo. Especially the rosemary and toffee colours – I’m quite disappointed about that.

Anyway, all dies are from Spellbinders’ Be Bold Blooms die set and I added an Impress Cards & Crafts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweetest Jasper Leaves

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has an interesting combo of mint green, strawberry, light yellow and navy.

I have to say I found this a tough combo to work with, especially as the navy in the inspiration photo was much lighter than the shade I would ordinarily choose.

Eventually, I decided to watercolour the beautiful Memory Box Jasper Leaves die with Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks. Then I smooshed some Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide and used it to cut flowers from Spellbinders’ Mini Fall Blooms die set. I felt my leaves didn’t have enough yellow, so I added yellow centres to each flower.

I struggled with the background. My go-to navy Hero Arts cardstock was definitely too dark, so in the end I chose a lighter shade of navy from my cardstock mountain and added some Chipped Sapphire distress ink to darken it a little.

I added a My Favorite Things sentiment to complete my card.

Springtime be bold blooms

Hello Everyone!

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

My Spellbinders Be Bold Blooms die set was still on my table when I saw the challenge so of course I HAD to use that again this time – using flowers in place of the squares in the sketch. I applied distress ink to the flowers before adding a die cut flower centre. While the three flowers would have been enough, I just couldn’t help myself… I had to add a few sprigs from the set as well.

I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment and a few sequins to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
