Happy World Card Making Day

I'm so delighted that I had a chance to create a card today - in celebration of WCMD. I feel so blessed to have this hobbie that brings me so much joy - not only when I'm creating the card but when I'm giving it to someone special as well. Not to mention the beautiful crafty friends that I have made along the way who are just as crazy about paper crafting as I am. 

Today I was smiling from ear to ear playing with Altenew's newest Build-A-Flower set - the Rose. Oh.My.It.Is.Glorious! My desk was covered in inks as I experimented with a variety of colour combos. Here's my card...

Sending Smiles Angled

On the pink rose I used mainly Altenew Inks (Frosty Pink/Pink Diamond/Pinkalicious/Rubellite/Razzleberry and Distress Seedless Preserves in the centre) The yellow rose was a real combination of brands (MFT Insulation Pink and Orange Fizz/Memento Dandelion, Tangelo, Potter's Clay and Rich Cocoa) For the leaves I used Altenew's Bamboo/Parrot/Olive and Moss inks.

The sentiment in Kristina Werner's gorgeous handwriting is from Simon Says Stamp's Handlettered Encouragement Set.

A smattering of Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins was the finishing touch. Think I'll link this up in the SSS WCMD Gallery :-)

I hope you have some fun creative time today.

See you again on Tuesday for the October Challenge for Scrapbook Boutique.

September Mood Board

All those blue hues made me reach for my brushos. I created a panel using the brusho colour 'Ultra Marine' and overlaid it with Altenew's Doodled Lace Cover Die   (thanks Therese :-)).

The die cut sentiment is from Altenew's Script Words 2 Die set. I inked it up with Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks.

Sympathy Card

Unfortunately I've had recent need of a Sympathy Card. I created something a little brighter this time - hopefully it still conveyed the solemnity of the occasion but also gave the recipient a ray of hope for the future...

So Sorry straight

I created two panels of colour (one in peach tones, one green) using Brushos and stamped on them (when dry) with Altenew's 'Adore You' stamp set.
