More cards from the weekend

Well I couldn’t sleep last night so decided to take advantage of my insomnia and make some more cards!

First up is a card for 2 challenges:

I loved the simplicity of the sketch, so created a simple OLC using CAS-ual Fridays ‘Love Notes’ stamped in black and red inks.


Told you it was simple!

Next is a card for another 2 challenges:

I wanted to make a card to give to one of my mother’s good friends who has been a pillar of support to me and my mum while my mum is on her cancer journey, without her I don’t think either of us would be coping well right now.

I was inspired by a card I saw over on Su Mohr’s blog but changed up the sentiment, colours and papers. I used a Stampin Up set called ‘Hand Delivered’ and Painted Blooms DSP. I did some paper piecing for the skirt and die cut the remaining THNKS from the DSP. The flowers were coloured with my Stampin Blends in Blackberry Bliss and Pink Pirouette.


Now for something a little bit lighter….. a card for 2 more challenges:

I love the blue and white colour scheme and little bird on Becca’s card at MUSE Christmas Visions so used these as the basis for my card. I used a bird from Katzelkraft’s set ‘Les Piafs Russes’ and hat from Stampers Anonymous “Crazy Things’ which I water coloured in, added some puffy paint for the trim, created the sentiment I created on my PC and added a vellum swirly leaf. This birdie makes me smile.


Thanks for looking and have a great day.
