Blossoms in Blue

Today I have a special birthday to celebrate, my Aunt is turning 80 and we are having a family lunch today to celebrate her milestone. As it has been a couple of weeks since I have made a card, I popped into my craft room last night to quickly whip one up. Luckily I had this background card laying around that I had made previously using Distress Oxides and stencils and as I didn't want to detract from the lovely soft colours and stencilled image I kept the rest CAS. I die cut a 'happy' stamped the 'birthday' and added some tiny flowers with jewels to finish it off. I am adding my card to the below challenges.

Round Floral Birthday

It's been a while since I have made a card and as I'm actually not a fan of shaped cards, this has really made me step outside my comfort zone. It's also been a while since I have used DP on my cards so it's a big day for I'm actually really happy with how it has turned out. I am adding my card to the following challenge.

Die Cut Birthday Window

Another card for my crafting Saturday, for this card I have die cut out Birthday and layered flowers underneath it. I have fussy cut a flower, added a stamped 'happy' then finished off with sequins.

I am adding this card to the following sites:

Aussie Birthday

Today's card has an aussie spin to it with a Kookaburra as the focal point. I stamped some branches then extended them to fit the Kooka on. Die Cut the Kooka twice as they have a very pretty blue/teal on their underbelly. Mounted him on the branch and added a sentiment.

Wonderful Fabulous You

Scored a bit of play time in my craft room yesterday. I made my background with one of my Christmas presents...Distress Oxides...cut a stitched frame out with another Christmas present, added my favourite die cut flowers and finished it off with a sentiment I haven't used before. I must say, I gravitate to blues and yellows, probably because they look so fresh and my poppy die cuts are a fav, probably because they are always 'just enough'with out being over the top.

Birthday Bird

My card today is a fresh coloured card. I started off by masking off a section with painters tape, then stamped my flowers randomly. I then coloured them with DI + DO's and added my sentiment. I had to add the bird as I got ink in the wrong spot...gotta love that...not!! Anyway, I quite like him as he gives the card a bit more character.

Happy Birthday Bouquet

As 2018 rapidly approaches so do next years birthdays. For this card I have used a floral set from Altenew, these flowers are rapidly becoming a favourite. I stamped some flowers on the corners then pop dotted 3 of them to give the card some dimension, stamped a sentiment and added some bling. 

For today's card, I am adding it this challenge:

Peace Love Joy

It's been a while since I have posted and the irony is that I didn't make half the amount of Christmas cards that I usually make for Christmas this year and yet my first card in ages is a Christmas card for the 2018 Festive Season! My mojo is that low, I have been struggling to be creative for months now.Today I have cased Kim's card, Kim is one of the DT members at Freshly Made Sketches and I just loved her card, thanks for the inspiration Kim as I needed it. I hope you have all had a very Merry Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2018.

Squiggly Christmas

I really need to get my Christmas card stash growing, so I'm glad to be adding another one to it. In Australia we don't really 'do' Halloween so I took up the challenge to use those colours for another theme and this is what I came up with. I made the background with DI as well as the card that I cut the Christmas tree from.
I layered it onto some black card to give it a frame and then stamped my sentiment and added some sequins to finish.

Monochrome Many Messages

Another Christmas card for my stash. For todays card, I used a set of die cuts & stamps that came off a magazine. I really like them and can see me using them a lot more. I have gone with a monochrome of purples layered over an embossed panel.
