Beautiful Promenade

Its been ages since I last inked up Beautiful Promenade. For this design, I decided to watercolour the gorgeous intricate die cut from the Beautiful Layers dies, with bermuda bay and crushed curry, and the brighter green tones you can see are where the two colours crossed over.

I wanted my flower to make an impact, and love how well the berry burst flower contrasts with the background yellows and blues.

My ‘Sending Love’ sentiment comes from the Well Said Bundle. I’m such a fan of die cut words and keep finding reasons to use these dies on all my projects! This bundle is such a great investment and with so many word and phrase combinations, the possibilities are endless.

Though this design is a bit different, it’s definitely growing on me and I like how all the colour on the card is contained within that die cut frame.  Next, to try different colour combos! xx

A Rainbow of Rooster Thank you cards

It was my son’s 2nd birthday on Tuesday and for once, I was super organised and made an array of thank you cards in advance!

Our note cards and envelopes are the perfect size for a thank you card, and so much more appealing when you have a batch to make – no cutting or scoring cardstock involved as it’s all done for you, easy peasy which is what I love!

I had no particular design in mind, but I was on a mission to use up some of my DSP and knew I wanted to incorporate that gorgeous ‘thanks’ die from the Well Written dies.

I’ve no idea how that adorable rooster from Wood Words entered into the picture, but I’m pleased with how the card came together in the end!

I had so much fun making them, I got completely carried away and by the end I had myself a rainbow of rooster thank you cards!!!

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to colour my rooster, and here are the colour combinations I used:

BLUE – Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Coastal Cabana

PURPLE – Highland Heather, Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry

PINK – Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lovely Lipstick

YELLOW – Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight

GREEN – Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce, Call Me Clover

Love how they turned out so much, I decided to make a box to hold them all in. I mean, wouldn’t this set make a gorgeous handmade gift for someone?

Hope you like the design for these sweet cards. Pop back tomorrow to see the box I created to hold them all in xx
