Hello everyone. I have a couple of cards to share with you today. Both of these cards are from new purchases which arrived yesterday – and I couldn’t wait to get stamping. This first card is using the ‘Holly Branch‘ stamp set:
I took the layout from CAS Colours and Sketches and created a simple Christmas card, using the stamps and sentiment from this set. I also added some red glitter card to the top and bottom, and die cut the main piece with a Catherine Pooler die.
I shall be entering the following challenges with this card:
CAS Colours and Sketches – sketch
Watercooler Challenges – Occasions
Time Out Challenges – Holidays
This second card:
is using the colours from Color Throwdown and the newly purchased ‘Peony Notes‘ from The Ton. I also used a Catherine Pooler background stamp for the lines as a back-drop to my flowers. To make the pieces fit together, as opposed to putting one on top of the other, I just turned the die around. Almost like a paper piecing kind of thing.
These flowers are stunning, and I tried them in different colours – and probably made smudges and mistakes on most of them!!
This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – Coral, Aqua, Yellow Green
4 Craft Chicks – anything goes
Daring Cardmakers – anything but white
Here is one of those smudgy mistakes – I’m still trying to figure out how I can save it! You see the green smudges on the yellow flower? How do I fix that? I may just have to bin this one and start again………….
