DREAM WEAVER

Hi friends! Remember me?  I didn't realise how long it had been since I blogged last.  How is it that time gets away on me so easily?  Do you have the same problem?


I want to share a little card I whipped up today featuring a dreamy bundle called Follow Your Dreams. I have always has a "thing" for Dream Catchers, so this bundle had my name all over it. 


I couldn't resist putting little hanging hooks on the top of each Dream Catcher using Bakers Twine!  The soft colours of Pool Party and Grapefruit Grove made a lovely contrast against the bold Black and stark white of the card.  No card is complete without a little bling either!


I love the strip of Designer Paper down the side of the card for visual interest, I borrowed that from Jackie Aitken!  This sheet of Grapefruit Grove is from the 6" x 6" In Colour DSP Stack, just one of the packs on the Buy 3, Get 1 Free promotion this month.  With so many great Paper Packs to choose from, it's hard to marrow it down to just four packs!  Check out the fabulous selection at my Online Store.

COLOUR REFRESH - FANCY FRIDAY BLOG HOP


We are a group of past and present Artisan Design team mates who love crafting together.  Each month we bring you a new challenge.  It is only appropriate then, since we have a brand new Stampin' Up! catalogue, that we have a colour refresh challenge in June!

With so many wonderful new colours to chose from, it was pretty hard to narrow it down.  But my choice of stamp set, the gorgeous Healing Hugs, helped a lot!  This beautiful rose image looks divine in Lovely Lipstick and the leaves allowed me to break out the Granny Apple Green!  Dare I say, it may be my new favourite green?



I love how these three colours came together on my card so much that I made another in a different colour way and filmed a video to show you how I created it.


If you enjoyed watching my creative process, I would love it if you subscribe to my YouTube channel.  It might just encourage me to make more!


Next up on the hop is the wonderful Marisa Gunn.  I wonder what colours Marisa chose to play with?  Click the next button below to find out!

ANIMAL OUTING

The Animal Outing stamp set is perfect for colouring with Stampin Blends.  For these projects I used both the Note Cards & Envelopes and Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes.  These handy packs make creating quick cards a doddle!

My Giraffe card is made using the Narrow Note Cards.  I used my Crumb Cake Blend marker to dot a wee border around the outside just to break up the white space.  I wanted my envelope to coordinate with the card.  What better way than to put giraffe print on the flap!  To do this, I created a mask out of Vellum card using the Animal Friends Thinlit dies.   I sponged Daffodil Delight ink all over the flap, then I sponged Crumb Cake ink through the vellum mask to make the giraffe spots!


How cute is this Hippo, ahem, Rhino?!!  I used the Note Cards & Envelopes to create this little guy.  A little background sponging was done before I added my fussy cut Hippo over the top with Dimensionals.  I actually didn't have the Animal Friends Thinlts when I created this card, but he was easy enough to cut around that it didn't matter.
