- 1 ribbon
- 3 flowers
You can of course use other items, but you must include the items on the list on your card.
So, now on to my card. I've used another of the new Rachelle Anne Miller designs 'Hoppy Spring' (by Stampavie), and a fab sentiment form the 'Kid's Quotes' set by Inkadinkado. The paper is by K&Co (from the Amy Butler pad), my ribbon, and the three flowers are from Poppicrafts. The five plain round brads are by Papermania, and the sparkly butterfly brad is by Dovecraft.

I've used 'Rainin' Daisies' by Penny Black for my main image, which means I have 'Showers AND Flowers' on my card! lol
There are so many colour combinations I like to use, that I found it difficult to pick a favourite, but after a quick look through my card box...'Pink & Green' came out on top...and I thought I didn't 'do' pink! All of the paper are from the 'Blush' range by BasicGrey - and I used the Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder to emboss the central panel. The sentiment stamp is from Whiff of Joy, the flowers are from Poppicrafts, and the lace is from Hobbycraft.

I'm still managing to make a Christmas card a week...this is last weeks...didn't manage to get it finished while it was still light enough to photograph yesterday.

With the additional challenge of including a handmade flower on our cards...eek!
I've made a few flowers using Nesties before, so I thought I try something a bit different. I tore the piece of Japanese silk paper into 4 strips (roughly 4cm wide), then folded them like a concertina and joined them together. I then stitched through the bottom of each fold, so that when I pulled the cotton tight, it held it's shape. I then sewed a button in the centre, to cover the join. I mounted the flower on a couple of Nestie shapes embossed with the Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls folder, with the feather behind...it's supposed to look like a leaf! As the flower rather dominates the card, I've kept the rest of it really simple, adding a sentiment (from the 'Circular Greetings' set by Woodware), mounted on Nestie shapes, with the glittery brad from my 'kit' in the centre.
As the flower is huge...I'm going to enter this card for the Daring Cardmakers Challenge, where the theme this week is 'Supersize me'!

I had this gorgeous 'Sweet Slumber' image (by Penny Black) already coloured, and I couldn't resist using some of my new 'Bittersweet' papers (by BasicGrey), and a few pieces of Craftwork Cards 'Card Candy'. As I'm using new stash, I've followed the Sketch & Stash Challenge sketch, only adding a couple of Poppicrafts flowers...and I've just managed to get this uploaded in time to enter it for the Stamp with Fun Challenge, where there is a colour theme of Brown & Pink.
Must get my nose back to the grindstone...

I rotated the sketch to fit my image ('Rainy Days' by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie), and used papers by Daisy D's and K&Co, that I've had for ages, but have never got round to using. I embossed one of the papers with the Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder. The sentiment stamp (by Whiff of Joy) goes perfectly with this image, and the ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

I've made a Birthday card using this week's Just Christmas & Birthday Card Challenge sketch. I usually make square cards, but have used a lovely Penny Black image ('Daisy Chain'), sent to me by my lovely friend Carol on a DL card. The backing papers are by Sandy Lion, and I've torn the one across the centre, so I'm also entering this card for the One Stop Craft Challenge where the theme is 'Torn' this week. I've used some tiny Prima flowers, held on with teeny brads from Poppicrafts in the corners, a sentiment from the CCSR set by Papermania.

I also received this lovely award from Helen, who is one of my most regular visitors - thanks for thinking of me, and thanks for all of the lovely comments you leave me! :0)
As I received and passed this award on a few days ago...I won't this time.
