Altenew August challenge : take 2

Hi there!

Just a quick hello to share a card I made before my 10 day break to visit my family in South-Africa. I didn't have time to take the pictures before I left... and seeing that it always take some time to get my mojo back after a break, I started off the week by taking photos ... getting back into creative mode gradually :)




My first take on the challenge focused on the colors only, this time I wanted to use flowers :


                                                                               






I used:

Challenges:

The flower challenge  ~ Background stamping.
Seize the birthday ~ Anything goes.



                          


Thanks for looking!

Have a great week ♥

CASology : Prickly

Hi there!

Succulents are so trendy right now... and I just love them too! Some of them can be quite prickly , and we want to see how this cue card will inspire you this week at CASology !


                                      
I have made soooo many cards in my life, but I have to say this one might be right there at the top of my favorite list!
It looks just as I imagined when I started off the design. And that makes me so happy 😁

Altenew August inspiration challenge.

Hi there!

A new month means there's a new challenge at Altenew !

This month , Erum came up with the most beautiful inspiration, using colors from one of her
(many !) amazing cards 😍




I always reach for my flower sets when I play along in this challenge, but the colors this month provides a great opportunity for a more graphic design. So... today is the day to use the stencil I fell in love with the moment I saw it!

I stenciled the background with Olive and Lagoon inks and used my craft knife to split the upper panel in 2 parts, following the pattern of the Cube builder stencil.

I glued a piece of gold glitter paper underneath the popped up panels, and added the cut and stamped sentiments. Sentiment stamped with Mocha.

 I finished off the card with a couple of gold rhinestones.

Thanks for visiting !

Hugs
