Pink Lilies

Happy Tuesday! Today I am here to show you a card with a bit of a difference. I recently picked up the new Craft a Flower Lily Die from Altenew and I had a play with it. I created a card with three lilies in pink.


I cut the layers of the dies in different shades of pink cardstock, using pink glitter cardstock for the center one. Even the leaves are layers and give a great dimensional look. I cut them out of two shades of green. I created a top-folding note card out of heavy-weight cardstock. Using a  piece of Post-it tape to protect the back of my card, I added some Memento Tuxedo Black ink to an acrylic block, misted it with water and then flicked it off the block onto the front of my card to make a fine splatter effect for the background. I then arranged my lilies, popping the left one and the bottom one up with foam tape.


I added a sentiment by using my recently rediscovered rub-ons from my stash to a piece of black cardstock and cutting it out with a Hero Arts Oval die. I added the oval to the bottom left hand corner of the card.


I completed the card by adding three pink flatback pearls from my stash. I absolutely love this die and if you watch this space, you will see some more cards coming up using these amazing dies.

Washi Crash

And here I am with my second card for today. This time a DT card for the Outlawz Crash your Stash challenge and our cue this month is Washi Tape. Our sponsor is Lee Holland Art and I got to work with this cute digi called Dragon with Flowers.


Imagine

It is Friday again. I am not quite sure where the weeks fly to, but here we are. Today I have two DT projects to show you and this first one is for the Rabisco Challenge. Our sponsor for this half of the month is Oddball Art and I got to work with Kawaii Cloud and Hearts.


Mother's Day

It is Mother's Day tomorrow and since my Mom reads my blog, this is my social distancing way for sending a card and flowers this year. Mom, I am hono(u)red to call you my Mom. When times change again, you will get this card with the teddy and her pretty orange and yellow tulips.


Wise Owl

I am back again today with another card made with a digi by Fabrika Fantasy. This time I am using Autumn Owlet. I decided to let the owl adorn my complete card.


Experimenting

Happy Monday! It is the start of a new week and can you believe it that we have already started May? Today I have a card to show you that stemmed from a video I watched on YouTube about combining label dies with coordinating dies for stamps and making a single focal point unit. I decided that that was doable on my Silhouette too.


Progressive at Outlawz

It is May 1 and so time for a new Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz. This month our sponsor is Elena Zinski Art and the digi is Amelia Mermaid. When I saw her, I thought she had the perfect face to be peeking in through the porthole of a ship.
