Blue Bloom

Capture d’écran 2019-03-19 à 11.09.55Fiona at CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #313 chose Old Olive, Sahara Sand & Pacific Point as the colour scheme.  I die cut the Memory Box Sketch Daisy out of Sahara Sand card base.  Before adhering my flower, I stategically smooshed some Old Olive and Pacific Point on the card base.  Crackle accents were added in the flowers apertures, some blue butterflies were stamped and the edge was embossed with a stitched border from MFT.  Finally, I stamped some script on the edge of my folded card stock in the three colours.

loving hugs

Capture d’écran 2019-03-15 à 13.19.35CAS(E) this Sketch #313 is a REAL Capture d’écran 2019-03-15 à 13.19.55challenge 😛 so I opted for a mix media card.  Some crackle paste with watercolour for a rusty feeling.  Then some royal blue foil card stock for the penny farthing die cut along with a heart die and “hugs” die.  Some foiled thread for some flower sequins in the same colours.  Happy Birthday TIME OUT, sending warm hugs for your Birthday Challenge #313.

March CAS Mix Up Reminder

Capture d_écran 2018-11-11 à 12.17.12Welcome back to Capture d’écran 2019-02-25 à 16.41.28the our 3RD ANNIVERSARY & our March CAS Mix Up Challenge to which I’m excited to host.  This month, we’re trying the Faux Stained Glass technique.  Of course, we’ve got plenty of video’s on the blog, but the design team along with our Special Guest Gundi have made some stunning cards to get your mojo started.

For this card, I die cut the Alexandra Renke flower and leaf 4 times with thick Bristol paper.   These were adhered onto the white textured card base.  To seal the apertures I added 2 coats of Gesso before adding the Pébéo mix media acrylics called Prisme Fantasy.  I let this dry overnight and added the white textured die cuts to hide any spillage 😉  “Just un petit mot” (Just a little note) was stamped with Versafine black ink on a piece of vellum and clear heat embossed.  After adhering two sequins in the same colour tones, an Altenew fine rectangle frame secured this piece.

Don’t you love trying something new?   The Design Team as well as our wonderful Guest Designer Gundi  have some awesome inspiration for you.

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz,

Spring blues

Capture d’écran 2019-03-13 à 15.25.46Playing along with Judy’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #379 and with the Color Throwdown Capture d’écran 2019-03-13 à 15.26.19Challenge #534 (light blue, brown and orange).  I used orange Brushos for the strip on the card base and added some molding paste over a Darkroom Polka Dot stencil.  Then I die cut some Elizabeth Craft Garden notes on Blue Brushoed watercolour paper, working the paper to give the blooms dimension.  Finally I added a generous amount of Nuvo drops for the stamens and added some brown glitter.  “Merci” (thank you) was also covered with brown glitter.
