Spring Thoughts

Hello Again!

Firstly - a huge THANK YOU for all the comments on my first post on this blog! It was lovely to read all of the kind words that were left. It certainly encouraged me to post again!

I thought I would enter the CASology Challenge again with this card, as the theme is Flowers. This is for a lovely lady who looks after my dogs for me when I am at work, and I could not do without her!

I played with a couple of new things that have joined my stash this week. The flowers are WPlus9 Spring Blooms, and they have been inked up with Avery Elle's pigment inks. These are gorgeous colours, and have created some lovely detail. You can just see the stamping on the right hand side, which has been picked out with some more Wink of Stella. 

The colours that I used were: Lemon Grass, Celery, Pixie, Raspberry, Mimosa and Fizz. They were lovely to use, so will not be going in a cupboard out of the way! The card stock is Stampin Up!, and the gorgeous sentiment is from Mama Elephant. Just love the cursive sentiment. The heart was coloured with a blossom Copic Spica pen. 

Thank you so much for visiting! Kx

Well, Here We Go!

Thank you for stopping by today! Well, this is the first creation that I have posted on this blog - so hopefully it will be the start of many more! The first step on my new creative journey!

I made this card for a close friend of mine for her birthday. I have seen so many cards around that use florals and bold sentiments ( I was really inspired by Ren-Yi and Lynn), so I thought I would give this kind of layout a go!

How many flowers is enough on a card?? With these stamps it was so easy to build them up - love them so much. They are going to get plenty of visits to my desk! They are Uniko Studio's "Background Builders : Vines". The sentiment is Avery Elle's "Oh Happy Day" set. All the colours are Stampin Up! You can't see on the photo, but there is also liberal amounts of clear Wink of Stella on there too!

I can see already that I need to sort out my photographs! I have a light tent hidden somewhere, so I must dig that out.

Thanks so much for visiting. I look forward to coming to visit you too! K xx
