Trio of Daisies

 Hi and welcome!  Today's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was designed by Judy Rozema and I immediately saw a trio of flowers so that's what I went with.

I used the NBUS Upsy Daisy die from MFT and cut out multiples of each size.  I then lightly ink-blended some yellow in the centres and pink around the edges before layering them up with foam dots in between the layers.  The leaves and centres were also ink-blended.

They looked a bit plain on the card base so I added some embossing paste over a stencil and also a stacked frame.  The sentiment came from my already-foiled stash.
Thanks so much for visiting.  The DT have some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.

Friendship Boots

 Hi!  I'm here with a card for the latest Tic-Tac-ToeTic-Tac-Toe challenge and this time, I went right down the left column with Layers-Die-cut-Patterned Paper to come up with this card.

These dies are just new to me and I decided to make a fun card using polka dot paper.  To be honest, I pretty much bought this die set for the flowers but the rest of it isn't bad!

I did some ink-blending to add a bit of dimension and shading and used a pre-foiled sentiment.  Thanks for visiting!

Ink:  Mustard Seed, Kitsch Flamingo, Rusty Hinge, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Forest Moss Distress Inks
Cardstock:  White, Black, Party Patterns (MFT), various coloured cardstock scraps

Postage Thanks

Hi and welcome. Our sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches is Amy O’Neill. I immediately saw postage in the sketch and went to work with a new stencil set and the Postage Collage due from Waffle Flower.

I was guided by the Colour Cubes for my colour combo and used Altenew inks. Once stenciled, I cut the due apart and arranged the elements onto a larger postage die panel.  After stamping a sentiment I adhered the panel to a white card base and called it done.

Thanks for visiting. Please check out the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team.
