Just For You…..

Many of you may have already seen the gorgeous inspiration picture for this week over on Just Add Ink, but just in case here it is again.


Aren’t Sunflowers just beautiful. They are so cheery and bright. One of my neighbours has some humungous ones in her front yard at the moment.


To enter this challenge, Just Add Ink 53, all you have to do is create something using this picture as your inspiration. It can be the colours, the flower, or even the feeling you get from the picture.


Now I looovvee Sunflowers but unfortunately Stampin’ Up don’t have a Sunflower image in their current stamp range. Maybe I need to suggest they add one…..lol


So for my card, I’ve gone with some of the colours in the picture, another flower, and the feeling of bright and cheery.


This is what I ended up with.


It’s nowhere near as bright as the picture is but I have used our brightest yellow being Daffodil Delight.


The colour combination I’ve used is from the Colour Coach using Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso (that’s 2 colours from the inspiration) and Cherry Cobbler. I’ve used a past Clean & Simple sketch which is #5 for the layout.


Stamp sets: Greenhouse Garden, Just Believe
Card: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight Patterns DSP (Brights Pattern Stack)
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler brads (Regals pack), Stamp-a-ma-jig, Matt Pack & Paper Piercing tool.


So what do you think?

Elegant Soiree Tissue Box & Card update

I recently posted pictures of the Tissue Box cover I’d made as a gift and am finally back to show you the matching card that goes with it. The main image used on this card I initially intended on using on the Tissue Box cover but it turned out to be too large. I’ve used the ‘Awash with Flowers’ Stamp set.

This is the complete gift. Handmade part that is.

A closer look at the full card and inside.

I’m really happy with how this all turned out and I’m sure the recipient will love it too.

Stamp sets: Awash with Flowers, Occassional Greetings (Hostess Level 3 set)
Card: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP
Inks: Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Basic Gray
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Very Vanilla Satin ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Nestabilities (non-SU)

Till next time….
