Colour my Monday! Rose Red!

Happy Monday Everyone! Time to play with some colour I think!

This week I thought I would plump for a Regal colour …

I have liked this colour for quite some time. It offers a nice pink that isn’t too brash or wishy washy and is lovely used for flowers etc. So I have indeed gone for a flower!

My lovely friend Mara let me use her Regarding Dahlia stamp set to complete a swap a few weeks ago and I took the opportunity to stamp a couple of the fab flower images out in a variety of colours to use at another time … And this is one of those times!

In this case I stamped it in Rose Red and then added more of the Rose Red with the aqua painter as a wash and to add extra colour to the lined petals! Lovely isn’t it!

I then stamped the sentiment in the same way and used the Decorative label punch to create the little shape … Never usually remember that I can do this so was proud of myself for remembering at the time! I also added an edge with the matching Stampin write marker.

I layered up the fussy cut image with a doily, some of the fabulous glimmer paper and some Pretty in Pink cardstock. I then added another layer of Whisper White to which I doodled a border.

Pretty … But also pretty easy little make! No one said it had to be difficult!

Happy crafting!

My auntie’s birthday card!

Yesterday was my lovely Auntie Margaret’s birthday. So on Thursday when I spent time with my friends crafting I made her a lovely special card!

As I wasn’t at my house, and had not prepped for what crafting I was going to do, I did have to ‘borrow’ a lot of the supplies lovely Mara had as I had pretty much taken a bit of white cardstock and that was it!

I have to admit when I had seen the Regarding Dahlia stamp I did think it would make a good triple time stamping card … And this twisted version looks just as fab as I thought it would!

I stamped it in a combination of pinks and purples and blue. I added the lovely sentiment from Label Love, the doily to soften the layered edges, some bling and a little bit of ribbon and it made a fab card topper for this 8×8 card.

Love the mix of colours and the stamped image just speaks for itself!

Happy birthday Auntie Margaret! By the way this is posted on my blog before I have even managed to post the card … My family know what I am like for doing this … Oops! Sorry auntie M!

Happy crafting!
