Weekend Makes

Hello Everybody,

the weather here in the UK is fab!!! It is really warm and in our sheltered yard, I even managed to have lunch outside … that was after I hung the washing out LOL …

Thanks everybody for leaving me such lovely comments. I have been crafting a little bit over the weekend and want to share some of my makes with you.

Let’s start with a super quick bargain card. I was out in Wales on the Llyn Peninsula recently and happened to pop into HomeBargains in Pwllheli, where I bought the stamps for my first card for only 29pence!!!

I thought I’d try and go a bit artsy. I inked up an acrylic block with pink dye ink and scribbled on it using some darker pinks and stamped directly onto my base card. I then added the butterflies in turquoise and my sentiment, made up of several stamps, in black, doodled the border, added a few splashes and finished off with some sequins.

The next two cards are based on the same idea, stamp a circle and turn it into a wreath of flowers, both cards were made using the ‘Petite Petals’ and ‘Daydream Medallions’ Sets by Stampin’Up! plus the flowers sentiment collection by Card-io.

The first card has very much a Spring Blossom Feel about it hence I would like to enter it into the Allsorts ‘Spring Blossom’ Challenge.
