Falling cherry blossom

Hello everyone!

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

I love that this week’s sketch is so open to interpretation – leave that big central panel blank.. or use an embossing folder… or add a focal point… or… I had so many ideas!

In the end, I chose to use some of my patterned paper mountain and the Stamp Market’s Ready to Bloom cover die.

The sentiment is from an old Simon Says Stamp set.

Bundles of branches

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Just Us Girls challenge which has a super colour combo this week!

I love how a couple of Instagram cardmakers, Julia and Elizabeth, use coloured die cuts with the same die and their makes inspired my card! I used a brand new die from the Stamp Market’s Add Some Greenery die set, coloured with distress ink, plus an older sentiment die by Waffle Flower Crafts.

Pink, grey and silver forest

Hello again everyone!

Next up today is my entry for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge, which has one of my favourite combos – pink, grey, silver and white.

I used the gorgeous Wispy Trees by The Stamp Market, stamped with distress oxide inks. I added a few strips of silver glitter paper and some silver thread to add some different textures as well as a bit of festive bling! Finally I stamped a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.

Day 13 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 13’s inspiration is Day 13, 2016. I loved all the layers in Chrissy’s tag so here’s my take using the fabulous Winter’s Wispy Trees by the Stamp Market.

Magical wispy trees

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge  which has a fabulous  combo of pink, lavender and aqua.

I used the fabulous new Winter’s Wispy Trees from the Stamp Market plus a die cut and sentiment by My Favorite Things.

Thanks for stopping by!

Belated Birthday Blossoms!

Happy Good Friday!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has another beautiful colour palette this week – blush, dark pink and cream. Perfect for for a cherry blossom card!

I used the Stamp Market’s Ready to Bloom cover die to cut a panel I’d covered with Tattered Rose distress ink. I then added a little Worn Lipstick in the centre of each bloom… but when I looked at itm the contrast wasn’t as intense as I wanted – I knew I needed to add a different shade of pink to represent the dark pink in the palette. So, I blended some Picked Raspberry distress ink for the Creative  Expressions die cut sentiment. I adhered the die cuts to a card base that I’d altered with Antique Linen distress oxide ink and then added some glittery Nuvo drops to complete my card.
