Pink, Green & White…

I’ve had a really busy last week and haven’t done much cardmaking so decided to use a card challenge to kickstart myself again!

I wanted to use some of my Memory Box floral dies and this colour scheme screams flowers. The Memory Box dies are great because you can use the outline alone, the outline and internal shapes together or just the internal shapes.

Pink Green and White-1-7

I first swiped Ranger Distress Inks in ‘Spun Sugar’ and ‘Picked Raspberry’ over card stock so I could die cut the flowers out.  I decided not to use the stem portion of the die and simply cut that off.  The dots in the centres of the flowers are Nuvo Crystal Drops in ‘Apple Green’.  The sentiment, from the My Favorite Things ‘Label Love’ is stamped in Altenew Crisp Dye Ink ‘Parrot’.

Pink Green and White-1-3

I decided to make a couple more cards with the same colour scheme but a different die from Memory Box – ‘Budding Peony’ and using Nuvo Embellishment Mousse ‘Citrus Green’, ‘Peony Pink’ and ‘Pink Flambe’ instead of Distress Inks, to add a bit of shimmer.

The sentiments are from Paper Smooches and Altenew and I decided to play with the placement a bit as I had seen a fabulous card by May Park of Mayholic Design using the sentiment as the stem.

Hope you enjoy them.

Ocean-1

I recently had a request for a ocean fishing themed birthday card.  I find I work best if I have some idea of what I’m going to do so after a lot of research, a lot of thinking and a few sketches I dove into the blue!!! Continue reading
