Pastel Mojo Botanicals...

Hi there!

I was able to find some creative time this weekend and combined a couple of challenges with some new toys...


I'm loving the Botanical Blooms dies and stamp set from SU - so many possibilities and pretty combinations! I used the colours from Just Add Ink and the Mojo Monday sketch to inspire me...

Botanical Blessings Journal...

Hiya!

It's time for another ColourQ challenge  - check out this week's colours...


I decided to make a journal with these colours and the rather FABulous Botanical Blooms framelits I recently got from Stampin Up... love!


How gorgeous are those flowers??! I shall be playing with these dies a LOT! I used a Verve scripture stamp for the sentiment and some Kaisercraft dsp for the wood panels. I used the Viva la Verve sketch for my layout...

Blushing Rose Anniversary...

Hello!

I took some time last night and this afternoon to just chill out and play with some new stamps and some favourite challenges... In this busy world of mine it's all too easy to forget to set time aside just to relax and create for the sheer joy of it! Hopefully I'll be able to pop in and share my creations over the next few days and week, but today I'll start with this one...


 I managed to score this beautiful Rose Wonder stamp set for free when I hosted my last SU party (yay for freebies!) and have been wanting to play with it for the past week. For this one I stamped the rose image three times on Blushing Bride and embossed with white EP, then cut three different layers and stacked up with dimensionals. The leaves were stamped on Crumb Cake and embossed as well. The card layers were cut using one of MFT's Blueprints die-namics collections (love!) and the sentiment is from a old MFT set.

I combined this week's MFT sketch challenge (tweaked a bit!) with the Color Throwdown as my inspiration...

Simply Wonderful...

Hi there!

It's time for another fun ColourQ challenge and this week's colours are a pretty combination...


I got some new Kaisercraft goodies for Christmas (thanks Mum!) and these colours reminded me of the colours in the collection so I went rummaging through the die-cuts that came with the papers and found a lovely big bloom that worked perfectly. I paired it with some old SU saffron dsp and ended up with this quick and simple card...


I used this week's Fusion sketch for my layout (and the pink and yellow inspiration fits too, although these colors are a more muted version!)...

Green, Glorious Greens!

Hiya!

It's time for another fun ColourQ challenge and this week's colours and just stunning together!


I had to whip this up pretty quickly on Sunday afternoon before daylight disappeared (believe it or not, that's the last time I see daylight at my house that is good enough to take photos in before Tuesday!). I pulled out one piece of Glorious Green card from my stash and a scrap of Certainly Celery dsp and came up with this...


I stamped and embossed some leaves from Lighthearted Leaves onto white cardstock and coloured with Copic markers that matched the greens and aqua from the colour scheme, adding the other circle layers over the top. The sentiment and butterfly are from Verve, and I added some Kaisercraft rhinestones to finish it off.

I used this week's Viva la Verve sketch for the layout...

Gift set...

Hiya!

I'm back from Christmas break and ready to get creative in the new year! This week's ColourQ challenge is so pretty...


I wanted to make a card and matching journal to encourage a friend of mine who's been going through a rough time recently. I pulled out some Kaisercraft papers with these colours and came up with this...


This was my first chance to play with my new Verve stash - so many beautiful stamp sets!
