Hello Magnolias!

Hello everyone!

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

We’ve had some amazing spring time weather recently and I noticed that quite a few magnolia trees are starting to bloom! The perfect time to use my new Simon Says Stamp Etched Magnolia die I think!

I was originally going to include 3 magnolia blooms on the card but it felt a little overcrowded so I substitued the middle image for a bold Waffle Flower sentiment.

I used an older Memory Box die (Grape Vine Border) for the vertical strip.

Perfect Pussy Willows

Happy Sunday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of grey, yellow, tan and black.

I just got my new dies from The Greetery’s spring release and I love how Betsy demonstrated how to add a bit of colour to the pussy willow stems so I decided to use those dies with the colour combo – I don’t think I would have ever used the combo of Tea Dye and Hickory Smoke distress inks for the stems otherwise! I like how they turned out! I added some yellow to the individual buds but also sponged a yellow circle to add a bit more of that colour to my card.

I added a Waffle Flower vase and a Sugar Pea Designs sentiment to complete my card.

Birthday Branch

Hi there!

So, today’s card was intended for the Time Out Birthday challenge but sadly I got the closing time wrong!

I used my fabulous new Waffle Flower Crafts Geometric Cover Plate on the card base and added some Stickles.

The branch is from Altenew’s Weekend Doodle set  and coloured with my Twinkling H2Os.

The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs .

Waffle Flower bouquet

Hello again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along in the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches using dies from the Flower Stems set by Waffle Flower Crafts.

After colouring the dies cuts with Distress Oxide inks and coloured pencil, I cut an oval from my card base. I then adhered a piece of vellum embossed using the Simon Says Stamp Geometric Lattice embossing folder.

Finally I added a sentiment by Sugar Pea Designs, some sequins and stickles.

Vase of Chinese Lanterns

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of orange, turquoise, green and kraft.

A few weeks ago Simon Says Stamp released a new Chinese Lantern die, with inspiration from lots of designers, in particular the super talented Cindy. As a result, I was itching to play with a Poppystamps Chinese Lantern die that I bought about 5 years ago. I haven’t used it for a while, which is a shame because I love Chinese lanterns. Anyway, for my card, I coloured it with distress inks and added vellum (coloured with distress ink and pencil) behind each individual lantern. My blended background is a bit darker in real life – it’s a mix of Tumbled Glass and Broken China inks. The vase is by Waffle Flower Crafts and the sentiment is by Altenew.

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
