Aqua Hollyhocks

Hello everyone!

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

I’ve been wanting to play with my new Hollyhocks Botanicuts dies set by The Greetery for a while – it came arrived just as I was getting into Christmas in July so has been sitting in my ‘new box’ since then. I don’t think I have ever seen aqua hollyhocks in real life but hey anything is possible in our little crafty world, eh!

I paired the die set with an older Tonic Studios sentiment die and added some sequins and Nuvo glitter drops to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good Vibes Butterfly

 

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Just Us Girls challenge – the word is ‘butterflies’.

I ended up using just one butterfly, but I figured that was allowed as a few DT members had done the same! I bought the fabulous Greetery Jumbo Curiosity Butterfly die and stencil set and I was keen to use it today! As you can see, I used very different colours for me – I was totally inspired by some of the colours used by the Greetery’s DT!

I used the Simon Says Stamp Floral Centrepiece embossing folder but then got a bit stuck with the positioning of the butterfly. In the end, I cut a heart from some ‘special vellum’ and used that to ground the butterfly. Can you see the pretty dots in the vellum? I bought this sheet MANY years ago, but knew it would be perfect to add very subtle interest to the heart!

To complete my card, I added a My Favorite Things sentiment and a few sequins.

Forget-me-not hello

Hello everyone!

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

When I started on this card, I knew I wanted to use an embossing folder for the bottom part of the sketch, but apart from that, I just let my recent supplies lead the way! I flicked through my recent purchases and decided that it was most definitely time to use the beautiful Forget-Me-Not botanicut die set from The Greetery that I finally got hold of last month. I used a stamp from the Taylored Expressions Abstract Accents set and a Simon Says Stamp embossing folder. It wasn’t the one that I had intended to use, but I actually don’t think I’ve bought the particular folder that I had in mind!! The sentiment is by Memory Box.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 29

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 29 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today’ I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has a peaceful palette of cream, kraft and powder blue.

For my card, I used The Greetery’s Rustic Wreath die set plus a few Waffle Flower ornaments. I’m a bit disappointed that the blue in the photos looks much deeper than real life!

The sentiment is by Creative Expressions.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 18

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 18 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Us Girls colour challenge.

I just received the fabulous diamond frame die by Waffle Flower Crafts and couldn’t wait to get crafty with it! In the end, I layered a few die cuts and inlaid the gold sections. The ornaments are from The Greetery’s Curio Attic Ornaments set and the sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 7

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 6 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m doing something I rarely seem to do – sharing a card that I created without a challenge in mind!

I wanted to use an absolutely gorgeous die set that I didn’t get round to using when I got it last December – the fabulous Christmas Time in the City die set by the Greetery. I coloured all the images using distress inks and used a Reverse Confetti frame die to ground the images. The frame is actually longer than the one in my card – I snipped off a section on either side and hid the joins under the die cut images!

The sentiment is from a set by My Favorite Things.
