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!

A butterfly birthday – so quick and easy

Hi Crafty Pals,

I have another card to share that I created recently using a piece of super cool Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!® I was using a sketch as inspiration and only had a short amount of time to create so I made a card with minimal stamping and a few punches.

Birthday card with butterflies and Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper

I really love the bright colours especially as we have had a few dull rainy days in Mississauga recently. I didn’t have anyone in mind when I made this card, but I let my emergency card stash dwindle to next to nothing and plan to start building it up again.

I like to have a few different cards on hand in case I forget someone’s birthday or special occasion. I sometimes make generic cards and don’t add any greetings until I need to use them. Plenty of my card designs can serve as either Thank you’s or Birthdays. I must get cracking on some masculine designs as these are definitely the type that challenge me the most.
