Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Thinking of You…


Hello, It’s time for our next challenge over at Just Us Girls. It is photo week and Cecile is our wonderful hostess. I drew my inspiration from the colors and the stick things coming out of the block of wood, they reminded me of flowers. Plus, I had a brand new die-cut that I had been itching to use.

Card Details: The cover plate die is Stitched Diamonds from Pink Fresh Studio. The flower die is called Morning Blossom and is from Simon Says Stamps. I tried inking them a bit with Oxide Inks for some dimension. The sentiment is from Gina K and heat embossed. The card didn’t photograph well and looks so much better in person.

I didn’t love the way the first card turned out so I decided to make another one using one of my favorite color combos of Pink and Grey. This one photographed a bit better too.

Along with the other supplies I mentioned we have ; a SU Script EF, Stitched scallop rectangle is from MFT, and the Sympathy greeting is from Sunny Studios- Inside Greetings set.

Have a great day and I hope you head on over to Just Us Girls and join us! Nanc’
