Layered card

Here is the Unstampabelles' challenge for September 2019.

Time for Recess (Apertures)  TWIST Luscious Layering

I have started with a Colorbok Frame punch out sheet. I punched out the frames and was left with the holes. The apertures were therefore all ready to go. As they retained a line of colour that gave me the colours to use for the card.  

I backed the yellow and orange first and then the rest got the blue and white patterned paper.  I popped two of the frames. These were from the original sheet.  I also added a clock die cut (also popped), a chipboard xoxo piece and a handmade cardstock flower which has a lot of dimension.

I backed all of this on to orange paper and stuck it all on light blue cardstock.  So, lots of layers.

What will you make?

I love horses. I had a great love affair with them when I was a child.  I took riding lessons from 8 years old and went to 4 different riding schools. We bred and trained race horses. My Dad and my Uncle were hobby trainers.  I spent a lot of my youth at the Races.

The only time I go now is on Melbourne Cup Day.

Here is my layout inspired by horses.

I love the background paper. Glad to be able to finally use it. I was saving it. You know how you do.  hehehe

Wedding card


Hubby and I have been invited to an Indian wedding. I'm very excited. It is sure to be different and colourful.  The wedding invite was paperless and gold and red.

I've made them a wedding card and used the invitation colours as a starting point.

The flower is one by Manor House and has lots of texture and dimension. You can maybe just see the very pretty cream leaf that I have added.

I'm entering this at Soul Scrappers' CC75 challenge which is anything goes card.

Thanks for looking.

Two birthday cards

Hi everyone,

I've done a card for challenge CC74 at Soul-scrappers.  It is a sketch challenge.
I needed a card for my son's best friend who is turning 20 today. I quite like the bold red, black and white colour scheme that I chose.
I've also done female card with a flower in white and blue.

Have a great day.

Tea in the Garden watercolour card

Unstampabelles challenge:

August - Tea in the Garden TWIST Watercolour Wonders

Here is my card.

I had these water colour paints, brand new and unused.  I decided to use them on some yellow floral patterned paper.

I love tea, in particular Twinings tea. The 10 packs have a delightful pattern inside. I've used a different colour pack before. I chose a panel with a saying on it to use on my card.

The little teacup is from a Daphne's Diary magazine. They often have lovely images for projects to make.  Lastly, I added a die-cut which I have cut in half and used the other half on another card. 3 brown pearls as a final embellishment on the butterfly and I'm done.

What will you do?  Doesn't have to be a card. Can be a layout or something else? Just remember, don't use stamping.

Thanks for looking.
