Happy Spring

Hello! I'm back here today to share an Easter card created for March's over on the the Prima blog.

Aren't these just perfect fresh Spring colours?

I've used various items from their new Free Spirit range, including the ATC stack, which I've had a lot of fun playing with! The card background has ATC sheets layered on top of each other whilst the main "Hello" greeting was created by cutting the outline of the letters which is printed on one of the ATC cards and leaving one side uncut to give the pop up effect. I've softened the paper colours with white paint and Free Spirit Music Notes stamp.

 The birds nest is fashioned out of  bunched up wire, string and the eggs out some Prima nests! The flowers are an assortment from the Free Spirit range and resist canvas vine leaves which I glimmer misted then added texture and details with some white Enamel Accents.

One of the L's which was cut out from the ATC card has been coiled with some Prima wire thread while the previous L has a tiny metal bird which I took off an old Prima (Songbird?) trinket .

 Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Fresh & Fun For Mum

Hi everyone! Do you like creating something a bit different from your usual comfort zone? I do and today I'm sharing this Mother's Day card  which is bright, bold and poppy! It differs from my usual favoured tones, but I like to mix it up now and again and love how fresh and fun the colours are.

 The papers and die cut embellishments are Crate Paper Maggie Holmes, along with the awesome chunky gold glitter Thickers.

I die cut a square from cork and backed it with vellum, filled with sequins and sandwiched a square of paper behind. I made the bow from scrunched up tissue paper and added some paint highlights.


Plenty of sequins, my new "thing" :)

 Have a great rest of the week!
