Botanical Bliss Silhouette Card

The Botanical Bliss Bundle is such a versatile set and the dies mean that you can easily make your own gift tags or incorporate the tag into your card design.

I wanted to make the die cut look like a window within my card so I backed it onto a piece of blended cardstock. I cut the bird design from black cardstock so that once it was attached to my card, the birds looked like silhouettes.

The colours I sponged onto the background piece was lemon lime twist, coastal cabana and bermuda bay. Am looking forward to creating an array of cards like this with differently coloured backgrounds xx

Snowflake Showcase – Snowflake card with galaxy style background

The Snowflake Showcase is simply stunning. This gorgeous set makes it easy to stretch my creativity and before I knew it, I was attempting my first ever galaxy-style blended background!

These backgrounds have been dry blended and I have also stayed with one colour family for each card so I’m not sure it qualifies officially as the galaxy technique (which I believe is usually watercoloured). But it is my unique take on that technique.

I had so much fun creating these backgrounds and they all came together relatively quickly too.

The snowflake is cut from the largest die in the Snowfall die set and it is absolutely beautiful. I cut each snowflake from the new white velvet sheets – oh my, how divine!!! This paper is pure luxury, and I love its texture and the way it pops so vividly against the blended background.

The colour combos I used were:

RED – poppy parade, lovely lipstick, real red, cherry cobbler, merry merlot

PINK – petal pink, flirty flamingo, melon mambo, berry burst

GREEN – lemon lime twist, mint macaron, old olive, tranquil tide

PURPLE – highland heather, gorgeous grape, Rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss

BLUE – coastal cabana, balmy blue, pacific point, night of navy

Don’t forget the snowflake showcase will only be available to purchase until the end of November so don’t miss out on this beautiful and timeless set!! To purchase any of the products, just click on the product picture below. Thanks for stopping by xx
