FAIRY CELEBRATION MEETS IRRESISTIBLY FLORAL

Joining in with this week's Global Design Project - Theme: Winged Creatures

My first thought with this weeks theme was to use a butterfly, dragonfly or maybe even a bird. I even went as far as pulling out the Picture Perfect stamp set and then thought...Fairies!!!


Here is what I came up with using the Fairy Celebration stamp set.



Once again I have used Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper, if you have been following my blog you have most likely seen it a number of times recently. This time I added Bermuda Bay, Early Expresso, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight.




My final touch was to add some Fine-tipped Glue to the cherries to give them a little gloss.

MINI TREAT BAG THINLITS NOT JUST TO MAKE A BAG

This card has been created without using a stamp set - just the big shot and one set of thinlits. All the stars and the sentiment are all from the Mini Treat Bag, using Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock.




I used the Lucky Stars embossing folder to create the star texture on the navy mat.


I hope you have gained some inspiration from my project.

Balloon Adventures - Mojo Monday 484

I really enjoyed joining in with this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.


I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set in combination with the Balloon Bouquet punch to create this cad. The squares were cut out with the stitched shapes framelits, I love how the stitched details on the framelits just give the card that little something extra.



Here is the sketch.

Copper Delight - with Birthday Blooms

Every day I seem to be amazed with all the different designs we can make with just a bit of paper, ink and glue. I hope you like the project I am sharing with you today.





I used the smaller flower image from the Birthday Blooms and embossed it many times on the blushing bride mat. Added a banner of copper foil and one of very vanilla with another copper embossed flower. This time I coloured the petals using a Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker. I wrapped some copper metallic thread and a blushing bride heart from the subtles enamel shapes.





Here is the sketch I used from Global Design Project.


The colours are from The Paper Players colour challenge.

Irresistibly Thankyou - #SIP086

Customer thank you cards. Who doesn't want something special for placing an order!

Today's card was made for a lovely lady who has just started ordering with me.

The question is, do I make her something with an item that she just ordered or do I use something else? Well, it took me about 2 seconds to come to the conclusion that she is about to make her own special projects with her order, so lets make her something pretty with something she doesn't own herself.

I used Irresistibly Floral Designer Paper and sponged the colours on to the paper. I love how easy this paper is to use.




The sentiment "THANKYOU" is from the Love Sparkles Stamp Set which is from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. I used black memento ink and stamped on vellum, then matted with Bermuda Bay and Peek-a-boo peach.



My colour inspiration for this card is from the Stamp Ink Paper #86 colour challenge.





I hope she likes it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by,
Rosalie

Washi Wednesday #2

Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to the second in my series on using Washi Tape. This week we will look at another way to use Washi on a card.

Once again I have used it as an element on my card but in a slightly different way. I have used the washi to make flags for my banner. This technique is a very simple but yet an effective way to add a pop of colour and design to a card.


Pop Of Pink Designer Washi Tape (141649)

I simply grabbed some twine, in this case Melon Mambo to co-ordinate with the washi choice, added small pieces of washi and cut a small triangle out of each piece.





To complete my card I used the Birthday Bright stamp set from the 2017 Occasions catalogue, for the sentiment and the balloon in the corner.
