Flowering Fields for Stampin’ Celebration Challenge

Hi Crafty Pals,

This is my second challenge of the week and this time it is for Stampin’ Celebration SC123.

The sketch I used for inspiration is

SCIpix-021 sketch

I decided to change the orientation of the ‘stripe’ from landscape to portrait as I wanted to test drive the Flowering Fields Sale-A-Bration set I got for free last week as my order was over $60.

Flowering Fields Mothers Day

Flowers always makes me think of Mother’s Day. We’ve been in Canada almost 8 years, but I still think of Mother’s Day being in March (like it is in England) with the beautiful daffodils so I am always ready!

One of my favourite things about this card is the fact that I originally coloured the stem Old Olive, but when I inked up the flower head with Calypso Coral it kind of mixed the two together. I thought that the result was a cool gradation from one to the other – yeah for happy accidents!

Paper Players Mother’s day challenge

Hi Craft Pals,

Paper Players gave us a challenge this week to make something for Mother’s Day.

Secret Garden stamp card

I’d just bought the Secret Garden bundle and it is so suitable for my mum so I just hope she likes it. She is quite lucky as she gets 2 mother’s days as the UK celebrates on a different day to Canada.

Happy Mother’s Day mum hope you have a great one.

I am trying to use up all my retiring card stock so fortunately Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink are both spring like and retiring.
