Hello Falling Flowers

I'm getting back into the swing of creating this weekend, what better way to get back into the groove than participate in some challenges, and even better when you can combine two!  


I love both sketches and colour challenges, the sketch straight away reminded me of one of my current favourite Stamp sets - Falling Flowers , here is card I was inspired to create:

I have used 2 stamps from Falling Flowers to create my card, the flower was stamped, and then using the Stamp-a-jig I lined up the stamp to create the stem, masking the leaf at the top.  I used an Aqua painter to colour, and then added clear Wink of Stella for shimmer.

The sentiment is created using the Hello You thinlets, I cut 3 sentiments and used a dauber to apply the glue to the back of each, layering them slightly offset, then applying to the card. Enamel shapes are always handy to till in a little white space - I find them to be a great finishing touch.

I like how I was able to interpret the colours for the SIP challenge, below is the palette I selected:

  1. Hi Sue :) I like what you have done...When the mojo is gone sometimes these challenges are the pick me up we need.
    Simple and so pretty, did I say I like it hahaha I love it!

  2. Good morning from Iowa, a lovely card, love the colors and the layout, simple in design but very striking, using the purples is one of my favorites although I find the new purples a bit stressful to use, they don't stamp quite as true as the old ones do.

    1. I've not used Purples much, but they are growing on me :)

  3. Just a thought about using a dauber to apply glue, adding glue to these types of die cuts is a "sticky" business and is troublesome. The dauber is a great idea and it reminded me that I have a glue pad like a Versa Mark. I will have to remember to try that and it also comes with a refill.

    1. That glue pad sounds like an awesome way to get adhesive on delicate diecuts!

  4. Very pretty take on the sketch!

    1. Thanks Leigh, I really enjoyed using this sketch to create

  5. Wow! You really smashed that sketch challenge - awesome job! Your colouring is fantastic - you really made me look twice at the flower because it looks so 3D!

Thinking of Botanical Butterflies | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Wendy Cranford

Welcome to our Crazy Crafters Blog hop with special guest Wendy Cranford for the USA. Wendy is a super talented crafter,  you may be familiar with her blog Luvin Stampin, it's full of amazing projects that are bound to inspire you.
As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Cathy's creations, I decided on the below card, I just adored the simple lay out.

Like Wendy, I've made use of the beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper - it's just gorgeous.... and can be yours FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration, here's my Wendy inspired creation:

I was taken by the delicate detail of this imagery, I paired up with stitched scallop edge from the Be Mine framelits - I can't believe that I missed this framelit when I first looked at the set - I must have been too excited by all the hearts. To add height to my scalloped layers I added a layer of corrugated embossed cardstock.

The sentiment is from Climbing Roses, and…

Floating away with Tropical Chic

How quickly time goes by, it's another All Star Tutorial blog hop already! I'm always looking for new techniques and ideas, and follow a number of paper crafters -there is always so much to learn and seeing one project can open up inspiration for another.

Have you ever seen a project and just had to give it a try? My creation today is a inspired by all the Floating Frame cards I have been seeing, I just had to make one,.. but I was soon to discover that it wasn't going to be easy, search as I did, the wonderful Press & Seal still remains illusive to me here in Australia, whilst there is a Costco in Adelaide, it's a long drive so we don't have a membership, likewise the online options I located are just not cost effective, so I came up with an alternative approach for my card - my solution = a floating card front!

The first phase was to find a stamp set with medium to large die cuts, I opted for my one of my favorite sets, Tropical Chic, then to stamp and die cut …

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.
