Hi there and happy April! So sorry that I have not posted properly for a little while now, my husband surprised me with a trip to Rome so this little blog of mine got kind of neglected as a sorted other stuff out but I’m back on it now. I have to say that it will be a very busy month here …. I’m guest designing at Paper Smooches this month and for an other company too (you’ll see later in the week 🙂 ), and I also have a big birthday this month aswell (yep I will be 30) so lots of things happening!
So as it’s the first of the month that means that a new challenge is starting over at Sparkle & Shine Challenge. This challenge is an inspirational photo and we are sponsor by Pretty Pink Posh….
The inspiration I took from this were the colours, flowers and the use of a vase…..
To make this sweet little shaker card I firstly cut a white card layer using the smaller stitched Mama Elephant ‘Femme Frames’ die and then cut a vase shape into place using Wplus9 ‘Fresh Cut Containers Dies’. I then used the Wplus9 ‘Fresh Cut Containers’ stamp set to create the florals in the vase.
The sentiments are a mix of dies (Lil Inkers ‘Sending You’) and stamps (Wplus9 ‘Happy Harvest’) using gold ink and Gold Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal. I added a mix of pink and yellow Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the vase shape before adding a teal background to it.
I would really love to know what you think of my card! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog If your interested I’m also on Facebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.
I hope you have a beautiful day and I will see you again soon.
Hugs Lydia xxx
