Balloon Celebration as flowers

Dear Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Pals Paper Arts. The challenge this week is an Colour Challenge PPA#283.

ppa-283-jan14

As soon as I saw this colour challenge, I knew I had to give it a go! This is one of my favourite colour combinations.

I started with a Mint Macaron card base and added some coordinating dsp which I sponged the edges.

Next I stamped the images onto Whisper White card stock using the Memento Black Inkpad. The stems are from the Flower Patch stamp set, as is the sentiment, but those flowers are actually from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. Yes, it is that “wheel” looking stamp that we all looked at and wondered what on earth it goes with in the theme of the balloon celebration stamps. It had me stumped for days, but I was determined to have a play and work out exactly what I could create.

The flowers are coloured with the Stampin’ Write Markers, Melon Mambo and Mint Macaron. I stamped the dotty circle image onto vellum and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.

I added each vellum circle with a glue dot and then added a large pearl to the centre of each flower.

Check out that gorgeous white jute ribbon behind, adding the perfect amount of texture!!!

Sheer Perfection

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a colour challenge JAI#254.

I have to admit when I saw these earthy tones, it wasn’t something that really appealed to me. I prefer the brighter colours, but this is what challenges are all about, challenging ourselves to try new things!

I was in need of a thank you card for one of the prep mums who called yesterday to say that my youngest had left her lunchbox at school. We were already on our way to Kids Club and I wasn’t able to go back to get it, so this lovely mum wanted to drop it to our home. I was so thankful to her for even suggesting to do that for us, so I felt the need to make her this card!

The butterfly is die cut in Baked Brown Sugar and Tangelo Twist card together in the one layer.

The vellum is coloured from behind with the Stampin’ Write Markers in all four of the colours and adhered to the card with the coloured side down. I used the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to to the stitching around the edge.

Be sure tho decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together!
