The Flower Challenge #70 Reminder - CAS

If you’re in the UK I hope you’re not melting in this recent hot weather and are staying safe and cool. It’s time for a reminder about our current challenge at The Flower Challenge and this month we want to see clean and simple creations. I used the main stamp from the Funky Fossil “Hello Gorgeous” set, stamped off the corner of the card. I used my polychromos pencils and settled in for a good colouring session! Once again a touch of glitter and a doodled border to finish.

The Flower Challenge #70 - CAS

 

July! How did that happen? Time definitely passes more quickly the older you get. Weekends don’t last anywhere near long enough that’s for sure!

As it’s July, it’s time for our new challenge at The Flower Challenge and this month we want to see clean and simple creations. I used a stamp from the Funky Fossil “Hello Gorgeous” set. I got out my polychromos pencils and fussy cut it before adding to the card with foam tape. The sentiment is from the same set. To finish a touch of glitter and a doodled border of course. Simples!

As ever, I’m looking forward to seeing your creations.

The Flower Challenge #69 Reminder - Use Blue and Yellow

 Yup, I’m back with a reminder post about our current challenge - Use Blue and Yellow at The Flower Challenge

Another simple card this time. I used the clean up from the stencil after making my first card. Once dry I blended some blue distress oxides over the top. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the flowers from Aall & Create #517 and added on foam tape. A Clarity Stamp sticker sentiment and doodled border to finish along with a touch of glitter on the flowers. Simples! 

Don’t forget to check out our challenge rules and the fab creations of my teamies and guest DT.

The Flower Challenge #69 Use Blue and Yellow

Happy June! If like me you’re in the UK, I hope you’re enjoying the extra long weekend for the Platinum Jubilee. A new month means it’s time for a new challenge and so over at The Flower Challenge we want you to use Blue and Yellow. 

I made a very simple card this month. Indigo Blu sparkle paste through an Anna Marie Designs stencil, then stamps from Aall and Create #624 set with the crocus fussy cut and added on foam tape. Obviously a doodled border to finish! 

As ever, I’m looking forward to seeing your creations. Don’t forget to check out my teamies amazing creations and our fab guest designer too!

The Flower Challenge #68 - Use a number

 

I’ve tried to resist saying it for a bit, but seriously, where is the time going?! I can’t believe it’s May already, there is a beautiful avenue of cherry trees near the end of my journey into work and it’s been a delight to see them come into beautiful pink blossom and then rain petals like confetti as they go over. With lockdowns etc I’ve missed seeing them in full bloom for a couple of years. 

If flowers inspire you too, why not join us for our new challenge over at The Flower Challenge where this month we want you to add a number.

My card was inspired by the pink blossom and was my 18th birthday card for my niece (I definitely can’t believe how quickly those 18 years have flown!)

I used Heartfelt Creations Wild Rose and stamps and dies, Tim Holtz Shadow number dies, a stencil from Celebr8 and Bloomar Designs laser cut embellishments. 

As ever, please remember to check our rules and we’d love if you could add our badge in your post. Don’t forget too to check out my amazing teamies and our fabulous guest designer’s work. Happy crafting!

The Flower Challenge #67 Add a Heart Reminder

Happy Easter! I hope the Easter bunny is kind to you and brings you lots of eggs! Here in England we have bank (public) holidays for Good Friday and Easter Monday, so a lovely long weekend to relax and craft. 

If you’re wondering what to make, why not join our current challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this month, we want you to add a heart.

I used the same stencil from Heffy Doodle as my previous card, but this time used purple distress ink through it. The flower is an old Woodware stamp that I stamped on white card and coloured with Jane Davenport ink markers and then fussy cut. I added a bit of glitter to the flower centre, a clarity stamp sentiment and a doodled border to finish. Simples!

As ever, I can’t wait to see your cards and don’t forget to check out my teamies and our guest designers amazing makes.

The Flower Challenge #67 Add a Heart



 I hope that everyone is keeping well, it’s time for our new challenge The Flower Challenge and this month, we want you to add a heart.

I used a sunflower from a recent Clarity Stamp release that I coloured with watercolour pens then fussy cut. In the background I used a Heffy Doodle stencil and applied foil transfer medium through it and then added blue foil. The tag is from an old LOTV set and the string bow was from the name tag they put on my car keys when I had it serviced! Of course a doodled border to finish it off.
