What a Grateful Bunch

Welcome back, I made the most of a long weekend by doing some overdue organisation of my craft room, my label machine had quite a workout!  Now I feel so much better and ready to create, but the agony of choice with new products in my room, so I surfed the net for challenges - they are a great source for inspiration when you need the "little push" to get you on your way! 

When I saw the Sketch at Just Add Ink it perfectly suited an idea I had for Grateful Bunch, and what better than to fit the Colour Challenge at Paper Craft Crew too!  


Without further ado, here is my creation inspired by the above two challenges:



There are 8 layers to this card not counting the punched flowers, and I just love layers!  I water coloured the flowers using an Aqua Painter, blending the colours to give more intensity in the centre of each flower, I went over the flowers and leaves with Wink of Stella too.

Can you guess my mystery colour?  Below is the combination



Grateful Bunch is a lovely set and coordinates with the Blossom Bunch Punch too - no fussy cutting required for the 3 smaller flowers!  I can think of lots of uses for the border/edge stamp too, such a lovely lace pattern.

Delicate Lace with Magnolia Lane

Well hello Saturday! What a long week that was, so happy to creative today, it feels like it's been ages! To get me in the mood I went to my favourite challenge blogs for some inspiration, and I chose this sketch:


For today's creation I've mixed some old with the new - Delicate Lace edge dies with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. I decided to turn the sketch on the side, it seemed to show of the lovely flowers better.



This DSP is just gorgeous, a mix of floral and stripes all using a beautiful colour palette - yes, it did have me with pink, but honestly if you replaced pink with a purple or yellow it would still be an amazing DSP.




Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you live in Australia and don't already have a demonstrator I'd love love to be yours.

All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Not only is today the monthly All Star Blog Hop, but it is also the launch day of Sale-A-Bration and the Mini Catalogue, wow what a busy day!

Do you ever get caught up in the detail, and before you know it hours have past and all you really wanted was a quick card? That is me all to often,but today card came together quickly and it's perfect for a masculine birthday event too!

Who would have thought with just a strip of Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper, a sentiment from Bonanza Buddies (from the new Mini Catalogue) you could have a gorgeously masculine card in a jiffy!

I raised card front layer using some corrugated embossed cardstock for a little mow impact, the DSP is adhered directly to the card base, here's the side view


Lastly add some sequins to celebrate the happy day = card is complete!


Yes, it's a simple design, but less can be more on some days, hahaha (I don't have many of those days when it comes to card making).

Say it with Stars... Happy Birthday

I've had a crafty orientated day today in between weekend household chores, after delivering catalogues, and in between multiple loads of washing & cooking I played with part of my So Many Stars bundle..... being the Stitched Stars dies (23 in the set, spoiilt for choice, woot!)

These dies were perfect for the Global Design Project theme this week:


I started by stamping my birthday sentiment, then placed 3 of the star dies (the 3 smaller detailed stars) in position and ran through the Big Shot, then re-positioned and worked by way along the edge of the card, cutting 7 in total - perfect for a rainbow of colour.


I used 2 of the stitched stars to cut the colours, then placed them behind the card front and popped up on dimensionals, lastly mounting the card front on a Thick Whisper White card base, and there you have it, a fun Children's birthday card!



Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Stay tuned for more inspiration and tips this month. If you liv…
