Orchid Thank you card

Hi Crafty Pals,

Welcome to another video this time using the Balloon Builders Stamp Set.

I was inspired by the many, many images on Pinterest using this set. I saw a beautiful daisy style flower and thought maybe I could make something floral.

I have done a much better job at editing and thanks to some advice from an avid YouTube watcher (my son) I even had a go at speeding up sections. He still says I need some music at the beginning and to accompany the sped up parts 🙂 I am just happy I managed to get what I was talking about in the shot this time!

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!
