I’ve finally finished the card I made with the Pinkfresh Studio flowers I coloured up with my Prismacolor pencils for my video back in August: see it here. I’ve drawn a border around the coloured panel and stamped a birthday greeting from Papertrey Ink. A few sequins and then some die cut butterflies from La-La Land Crafts made up the rest of the card.
I’ve coloured up one of Emily Midgett’s colouring panels. A dash of yellow for the flowers and a bright yellow background. The only decorations are a few transparent sequins and a die cut sentiment. The sentiment is actually the hello die by Altenew (aff.link) which I cut into a Norwegian equivalent. I admit it worked a lot better than I had thought and it doesn’t look like it’s been cut, I think. Love it when you can use a die like that!
It’s time for another DT project using the lovely digital images by Rachelle Anne Miller. For today’s project, Rachelle herself got to pick what stamp I was to use. The stamp she picked is called Flower Love Birds. It isn’t really the type I would have chosen myself, but I love a good challenge so I’ve made two cards with it. To keep the cards similar I’ve used the same markers and kept both cards simple.
For the first one I’ve used the stamp as is.
For card number two I’ve rearranged the flowers and used a few of them more than one.
Here both cards are together.
December already and although I have a lot of winter and Christmas themed cards to show you this month, I am starting off with a floral card! Today’s project is a card made using the Little Things floral stamp from Crafty Meraki’s own collection. I started out by making a line in the middle with a black marker and masked off one half of the card, then I stamped the flower stamp before masking the other side, rotating the stamp set and stamping again. That way I used the same part of the stamp twice.
Once I had coloured it up I used part of a sentiment stamp from the Colorado Craft Company collaboration set, before using the rest of the same sentiment next to it instead of having it under as it was designed. I glued it onto lilac MFT card stock and used matching enamel dots from Altenew.
And here is a close-up photo for you.

Through the whole month Crafty Meraki has been launching their very first release. It contains both clear stamps and slimline dies. One of the products I’ve gotten to play with is this pretty floral stamp called Little Things. I’ve used it twice at different angles and used autumn colours for a change.
I opted for a red card base and used a die from Altenew for the text combined with an embossed text stamp from MFT Stamps.
