The Flower Challenge #56 Use Your Favourite Flower

Hi again, I hope you are all well and having a good week? It's May and so we have a new challenge for you over at 'The Flower Challenge' and it's 'Use your Favourite Flower' this month.

Such an easy one I think, I have so many flower stamps and dies now I am spoiled for choice as I love them all of course. However I did manage to narrow down my choices and in the end I picked some of my latest flower stamps, all details below.

Our Guest Designer this month is Bozena  our November winner, see her beautiful card in our gallery.

All details below, thanks for the visit and I hope you will come back again soon ;)

I made this card by using the Lavinia stencil called 'Pebble'. The stamp is by Pink Fresh Studio and is called 'Infinite Blooms', isn't it fabulous! I used Wow silver E/P and TH distress inks, the sentiment was inked using Gina K Obsidian ink.

ahem......and yes you can see my sentiment didn't ink properly at first so I added another on top...as you do lol ;)

RVD Darling Flowers

Hi crafty friends, it's time for the latest May digi release from RachelVassdesigns. Today I am using the beautiful 'Darling Flowers' digi image, .....it's so lovely! As always see Rachels Etsy shop to buy anything, link above !

I decided on a pink and grey colour combo and made a tall and CAS type card for a change. Come and have a peek at it below.... thanks for the visit and enjoy your day whatever you have planned  ;) 

I have been doing more Spring cleaning today.... sorting wardrobes... lots of bags of clothes for charity now, scrubbing floors and washing windows (we have two large sun lounges back and front... so a LOT of large windows)....does it never end arghh!...I love how tidy and clean the house looks now though...and relax ;)

I made a very tall card this time, 7 1/2 x 4 " " (19 1/2cm x just over 10 cm) tall in fact. I cut a 7 1/2 " strip of card then added an almost 8 1/2" strip of card. I folded 1/2 " at the top and stuck it to my shorter strip.

I printed my flowers, and coloured them  using water colours (Altenew), then pencils added more shading. Then I cut the flowers and attached them to my card base using 3d pads. I added my printed sentiment strip (I altered the colour digitally to fade from pink, yellow and purple). I coloured around the strip in a matching Copic pen. 

A strip of pink glitter card was added below the sentiment for more interest. A sprinkling of pink metallic sequins and my card was complete ;)

RVD Crocus Love

Hi everyone, just popping by with more cards from the April digi release from RachelVassDesigns. This beauty is called 'Crocus Love', really makes me think of Spring. 

We have lots of Spring flowers in our garden and I love seeing them all every year, esp. the bluebells which are everywhere and smell so nice too atm. See pics below.....of course we had lots of lovely Crocus's earlier too!

Anyway back to my cards, I decided to make three cards in the end as I just couldn't stop making them lol !

See Rachel's Etsy shop to buy anything as always.

Thanks for the visit once again , do come and see my cards ;)


I made this card by first making  my usual A6 tent fold card base. Next I made a topper using my Hero Arts Postage Stamps die and coloured the edges using my TH distress ink. 

Then I made another panel, first printing  a digital inky looking background and adding my crocus digi image. I then cut it out using the same die again, coloured the flowers using Kuretake water colours, I added a few sequins and my card was compete.

For my second card I made the base card and topper the  same way as my first card. I added a digital frame and background and then added my sentiment. I cut out my panel like the first card again then water coloured using the same water colours once more. A few sequins and my card was finished.

For my third and last card I used the same method again but used an Avery Elle Finished Frames die. I made my digital background using a similar inky background panel and adding some digital lace over it. The sentiment says 'you inspire me' btw. a bit pale to see properly here.

I also added a digital oval and a sentiment shape with my sentiment added. My flowers were added on the top layer and I printed it all out and cut it using my die. Same water colours used again for my flowers.
