The Flower Challenge #91 Colour Your Flower


It's May, and The Flower Challenge says, 'Colour Your Flower'.

Use any coloring tool you like: paints, stenciling, pencils, copics, etc.

Haven't used my metallics in a while, and love their bright shiny color on
dark cardstock.

The Flower Challenge - Add Layers


April, the prettiest, flower laden month of the year!

My layers come from the Greetery, and encircle a phrase foiled onto a paper panel.

cards in the April challenge!

The Flower Challenge Make a Square Card


Hello March! For this month, the Flower Challenge wants you to create
a square card.

We leave winter for a peek at summer with the Hibiscus flower from The Greetery.
With the basket weave stencil in the  background, I inked die cuts and added a
birthday greeting.

Hope you're thinking square with this month's challenge. Can't wait to see
what you create!

The Flower Challenge Reminder: Add a Heart


Just a reminder, The Flower Challenge reminds you, your challenge for February...
Add a Heart

Altenew's Fairy Tale set is the floral used for my card. My heart dots the 'I" in 

The color was applied with stencils, and deepened with Prima pencils.

You have until the 25th! See you in the lineup!

Toaster Valentines

I have always had a thing for all things vintage, and loved The Greetery for 
spotlighting the sweetness of aged goodies. Their toaster die has just the  
right 'kitchy' vibe for a couple of valentines.

Using mirror cardstock, the aqua toaster is 'poppin' with love!
To make the heart background, I created a stencil using Greetery's Falling Hearts
 background die. 

I used the reversed dies for the 2nd toaster card, this time my toaster's hot pink, still
popping with love.
The sentiments are a combo of Tear Strip Tags Valentine,  and Hearts at Home

So much fun to create, they're off to a couple of special grands!

The Flower Challenge #88: Add a Heart


It's the month of hearts!
Welcome dear crafters. The Flower Challenge celebrates all things love
for the month of February. 
'Add a Heart' is your challenge. 

I went with a Valentine theme, and began with The Greetery's Falling Hearts bg die,
and filled Heart Leaf Posey Pocket with Wildflowers.
I've had  a love affair with Loopy Bow ever since the Greetery released it.
Signed and Sealed  heart with sentiment over bow.

Play along all month. Remember challenge ends on the 25th!
