Hello again. I have two more cards today, completely different to the cards from yesterday. Both of these were inspired by different challenges, and both ending today – talk about last minute again!
The first card was made using the colours from Color Throwdown – pink, green, kraft, white. I used the Dahlia turnabout from Concord and 9th (from Seven Hills Crafts whilst it was back in stock) and stamped four times using pink and green alternately, then used the matching die to cut out one portion of it.
I didn’t back the cut out part, and you can see through to the inside of the card, which I thought was quite a different way to use it. Of course, I then had to stamp the sentiment separately and add to the front of the card with carefully placed foam pads. I didn’t want the front sticking to the inside, did I?
The second card was made using the inspiration from CASology. A short but sweet word on the cue card – as per usual – current word being ‘Gray’.
I used the Altenew ‘Floral Fantasy’ set, and used the set of Altenew grey inks too. Once I had stamped it, then layered with some Narwhal cardstock, adding to a white base card, I then looked for a suitable sentiment…..and looked…..and looked. Finally, I couldn’t decide what sentiment to use – so I didn’t! I’ve done this before, and I think it looks just right as it is, and can be used for any occasion, or even as a ‘just because…..’ card.
Maybe I’ll have some time to play after work today, and be able to show what else I have been making.
Have a good day……… 🙂

So simply elegant! What a great floral set – must get my hands on it. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week.
Thank you very much. It certainly is a great stamp set, and I think no outline makes it whimsical. ☺
Great cards! I love how you left some of the flower petals out! Thanks so much for joining us at the Color Throwdown this week!
Thank you. Leaving them out adds yet another dimension, I find. ☺
I’ve seen that dahlia turnabout stamp and die in a few videos – it’s so pretty! I loved the colours you used in your card too.
Thanks Emma. I still intend to play a lot more with that set. 😁

I love having a card on hand without a definite sentiment. They make great note cards for any occasion and yours is a stunner! Thanks for playing along with CASology!
Thank you Rachel. ☺
