Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends and thanks for stopping by tonight. 

Tonight I am super excited as I was asked to be a guest designer for the Paper Adventures Team. It's always fun to hop with these talented ladies. Tonight's theme is BANNERS.  

And without further ado, here is my card.  

I have been having loads of fun creating these peony flowers in a whole range of colours and papers. 

And don't you just love all the shimmer? I used my spritzer to mix rubbing alcohol and frost white shimmer paint to give these flowers lots of shine. 

My inspiration for this card came from pinterest - made by the crafty yogi. 

The flowers layer really easily and you can add mini dimensionals in between the layers to get a really full look. It is just fun to sit and create a bunch at the one time and see what you can create.

There 'happy' sentiment is the only piece of stamping on this card. The 'birthday' is from the well said dies. My tip for these is to attach a piece of the adhesive sheets to the card stock before you run it through the die cutting machine. This way you can just peel and stick and there is no need for blobs of glue that always seem to seep out on your project (or is that just me?!)  

I have added texture with an embossing folder and a subtle piece of DSP from the Peony Garden pack. The banner is simply created with the banner punch which I used to flag the end of the DSP - simple but effective!

Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop 21 - Colour challenge

It is the 14th of the month which means time for another Stampers Anonymous Team blog hop! Boy these months are just flying by way too fast!

This month's challenge is to use two of the 2020-2022 in colours. I knew I wanted to use Cinnamon Cider and I decided to pair it with Just Jade and create a woodsy, masculine card using the Mountain Air bundle. I paired it up with whisper white for a crisp look. I added texture and interest with the hammered metal embossing folder and the addition of the die cut tree. 

TIP - The splatters on the circle panel were made using my blends pen and gently flicking the brush tip into the lid and onto my card. It is a great trick for when you accidentally get a little smudge on your stamped image - don't ask me how I know :)  

The strip of DSP is one that might surprise you a little - its from the Flowers for Every Season.

Peony Sympathy

Another day, another peony card for you! This one is quite similar to the one I showed you last week using the smaller peony flower to create a focal point. 

I wanted to make a sympathy card to have on hand as I find them emotionally hard to make when I need one. 

The peony dsp is the star of this design, and the pop of petal pink goes well with the gray granite.

Happy Birthday Peonys

Today's card is the same design as the coffee card I shared last week. This is a great design for a bit more of a 'wow' card (really hard to get a good photo though!)

We made this card in class a few weeks back, making our own background dsp using the peony stamp set. We used the smaller flower for the dsp and the larger flower for the centre panel. 

I love the petal pink and white combination, it looks crisp and fresh don't you think? 

Don't forget about my birthday special this month - place an order of $50 or more to get a FREE packet of Holiday Rhinestones. Please use the hostess code YSE2ESFE.
