Flower Power

I Love flowers, gardening and all that comes with it, so when the project was to make something that has Spring Flowers, I squeaked with delight.

I made a yellow flower shaped card base, with a smaller white flower shape in the centre. The yellow therefore acts as a border, I used my inks to create a scene on the white flower.

I thought this would be perfect to put the very happy ice-cream licking Horace and Boo on.

In the the centre of the flower I thought it would be cute to add a sentiment in a shaker window, so I used my go to sentiment bundle and added some acetate and Spring coloured sequins.

I am really happy how this card came out 🙂

Herbs and Plants

I didn’t need any more stamps, especially ones with Plants, but when I saw this in Simply Cards and Papercraft, I had to buy it!!!

I love stamps and papers that are all about Nature. I can’t really tell you why, I just do for some reason. Maybe as I love the countryside and would spend all my time there pottering around.

I wanted to make my Godmother a Birthday card, and she LOVES gardening just like I do, so I thought this would be perfect.

I wanted to keep it quite simple and not add too much dimension, which is very unlike me, as I am all about the grander and more complicated the better.

This is a 6×6 card blank, if Kraft Card. Which I adore and I think it works very well with the look I was going for. I’ve used a mat and layer in a peach colour and the hessian style green.

Finally I’ve added the four faux stitched die cut squares with the coloured in stamps onto the card, and added a sentiment in the middle, with a little Bird charm to finish it off.

Hope you like it.

Spring Fun

Spring is arriving and Easter fun will soon be here. I love to make Homemade treats for my Family and Friends, so making some nice boxes to put them in is always fun.

I made this tall thin box to pop some little handmade shortbreads in. I used the lovely collection of Winnie papers, and scored the sides and added a lid with the same paper collection. Such a lovely pastel collection, they go with everything not just in Spring time.

I also wanted to add a bit of WOW onto the box, so I cut strips out of the papers and folded into a bow and added onto the top of the box 🙂

The tag that I’ve made to attach to the box has had two die cut circles in it, that Ive added a shaker element too, with some Spring sprinkles. I’ve added Holly onto the tag as she is the cutest. Finally to finish off the tag I’ve kept it simple with a small sentiment.

Hope you like it. xo
