The Flower Challenge #20 Reminder

Hi there, I am back with a reminder card for 'The Flower Challenge'. This month our theme is 'Acetate/Vellum' as well as using flowers of course as always.

Also please check our rules and see new bits added on our blog. A few people are not following them and we are trying to make them clearer. Such a shame for people to miss out on winning because of not reading our rules properly. Please ask if in doubt too ;)

Anyway back to my card, I went for 'faux letterpress' look this time, more details below. Enjoy your week whatever you have planned. We are away for a few days in the Lake District soon, can't wait....and I have a scan appointment booked at last too, hope it reveals what's wrong with me!

White Linen card 
Watercolour card
Hero Arts stamps (flowers and sentiment) 
Inspire Me vellum
TH Distress inks
Clear ink for embossing 
Wow silver Embossing powder
Sizzix Stampin Up E/F (Elegant Lines)
Copics & Promarkers
Sequins from stash

I  first used my distress inks and inked up one half of my embossing folder , then I embossed my card panel using my Happy Cuts machine. This gives it a 'faux letterpress' look.
Then I stamped my flowers on a spare piece of card and coloured them in. I  fussy cut my flowers, I attached my card panel to my A6 tent fold card. I stamped and embossed my sentiment on a strip of vellum, tearing the edges for a softer look.

I attached my flowers, raising some up with 3d pads and added a sprinkling of sequins and my card was complete.

Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge,
 you have until the 25th May ;)

LIM Yellow, Blue & Grey card

Hi there friends, I am here to share another card for the 'Less is More' challenge again. It's a colour one this time and 'Yellow, Blue, Grey', nice colour combo I think too ;) 

I decided to use this hot air balloon set I bought recently, it has this sweet ellie included...aww I think it looks so cute ! I added a few punched hearts and decided that the sweet little ellie should be holding one of them ;)

Anyway come and have a peek at my card and enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.We are swimming again with the littlies. I made us all a huge sausage casserole (vege version of course) , baked a healthy courgette and apple loaf and made some roasted almond, date and coconut balls for a treat...yummy....happy days !

The Flower Challenge #20 Acetate/Vellum

Hi friends, I am here to share my latest DT card for 'The Flower Challenge'. This month our theme is
'Acetate/Vellum' and we would like to see either one on your cards.

Lots of lovely examples on our blog as usual made by all my talented team mates. Do pop over and have a look ;)

Anyway here is my card, I hope you all approve.

TFC, Watercolour, CAS

Watercolour card
Inspire Me vellum
AltEnew Floral Fantasy die 
AltEnew Watercolour Stripes stencil
Wow Gold E/P
Clear Embossing ink
AltEnew sentiment stamp (from Build a Rose set)
Little things sequins

 I made my card base and added another panel using my watercolour card. Then I used the stencil and coloured my stripes in various shades of DI. I used my flower die to cut a few shapes and coloured those with DI too. Then I took a strip of vellum and tore it at both edges and heat embossed my sentiment in gold. I added my flower and sentiment strip and finished it off by adding a few sequins.

Please add our cue card below when entering our challenge.
 Also remember that flowers have to be the main image on your card.
