Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today!

So I made something pretty and floral with the Blessings of Home bundle and my Stampin’ Blends!

The colours I used were Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent….

Theses flowers were coloured with Tahitian Tide and Balmy Blue!

Easel Card with Colour and Contour

Hello Everyone,

I’m bringing out another favourite stamp set for today’s card!

I created a hand stamped background, opting to use Basic Grey rather than black ink for a softer look. This complimented the Highland Heather ink I added to the flowers.

For something different I made this into an easel card. I thought this provided an opportunity for the beautiful scalloped edge to shine through.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…

The original card used So Saffron. I love this cute new tag punch!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #121 – Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone

Welcome to my blog! Today’s post is my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenge!

This time we have this amazing colour combination to work with!

You can see the other design team projects and participate in the challenge HERE

I created my card with the Framed Occasions stamp set, accented with the Flowers of Friendship.

There is a coordinating punch for these flowers which makes them a little easier to work with! You can of course fussy cut the flowers if you prefer.

Whilst there is no “green” in this combo, I thought I could get away with using the Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for the foliage. I think it worked out really well with the other colours.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial…

I’ll confess Pale Papaya isn’t my favourite colour so I kept it as an accent to the sentiment and brought it through in the ribbon and card base.

This sample uses the Pool Party Sheer ribbon and the rhinestones were coloured in Poppy Parade.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
