For today’s card I’m showcasing products from the Share What You Love Suite in Grapefruit Grove, one of our new 2018-2020 In-Colours. As regular readers will know I’m not a huge fan of the orange/peach shades in our collection but Grapefruit Grove is lovely and currently my favourite of the new in-colours.
Most of these products come from the Gotta Have It All bundle, which I highly recommend anyone purchasing as this suite of products is just stunning in real-life.
I added a circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits as a base for my stamping. The leaves are done in second generation ink so you can see how lovely a lighter shade of this colour is. The doily was one of the new pearlescent ones turned over and inked with Grapefruit Grove, I think this gives the card a real pop. The beautiful Artisan Pearls add the perfect finishing touch, I can see myself going through many packets of these.
Here’s a close-up of the card, I wish the photo showed the beautiful pearly shimmer on those fussy cut flowers. Hope you enjoyed today’s project.
Today I’m joining in with the colour challenge over at Global Deign Project , this months colour scheme was Night of Navy, Whisper White and one other colour of our own choice. I really wanted to branch out and use a different colour by my lovely Mint Macaron was calling to me so I chose that as my third colour. Here is my card:
Admittedly its not the best photo, any tips on how to reduce shadows very appreciated. The bow is maybe a little out of proportion with the rest of the card but I kind of like how it dominates.
The greeting comes from Painters Palette and all the floral details were stamped from Falling Flowers. The flower and leaves were cut from May Flowers, a die set I’m crossing my fingers doesn’t make it on the retirement list for this year.
I’ve had fun with this challenge and I’m hoping to join in more in the future. If you’d like to join in with this weeks challenge the pop across and visit Global Design Project by clicking here.
Thank you for stopping by.
I love the way the “Nordic” theme creeps into clothes and home décor at Christmas and the Stitched With Cheer set is perfect for creating your own Nordic inspired cards and crafts for Christmas. This card features a simple colour scheme of Cherry Cobbler and Crumb which I just love.
My Christmas tree line didn’t go quite to plan so I added the greetings panel to cover up a splodge, oops! I think its turned out okay though and can’t wait to pull this one out to play again soon…hopefully before it sells out.
Here is a close-up of the greetings panel. I love adding the little pearls to cards as a finishing accent. The cherry cobbler layer of the banner was just a die-cut which I cut in half to lengthen the banner and also to make the greeting stand out more against the background.
Blooms and Wishes is probably my most favourite stamp set from the current Annual catalogue, I just love the slightly water-coloured look it gives to the flowers, making for some beautiful cards. This card is my October customer thank you card, so if you shopped with me last month one of these will be in the post to you.
It was a very simple card to make just a couple of layers and some stamping but I think the end result is beautiful. I chose a colour scheme of Island Indigo, Mint Macaron and Pool Party and by stamping off some of these colours I ended up with a variety of shades on the card, which adds to the water-coloured effect.
The greetings panel matts were created from the Tags and Labels Framelits and I finished the card off with a little Mint Macaron Mini Striped Ribbon and a few pearls.
I really love this card and hope my customers do too. If you would like your own handmade card from me next month all you have to do is place an order with me this month, here is the link to my online shop.
