Thinking of and missing you!

So I have officially been an easterner for a whole 5 months. Getting used to Toronto but still missing Edmonton. For anyone who has moved far away from home, you will understand how difficult it can be. It’s been especially hard on my mom, we are close and often would go to the Strathcona Farmers Market early Saturday mornings, or grab a coffee during the week. So during my time away I have made sure to call often, use facetime and in true crafter fashion, made and sent cards. Below is what I sent her a week ago.

I absolutely loved this card and it inspired me to do a take on it:

And here is my take on it.

I love the layering in this one, as well as the oportunity to use this flower, been wanting to since I got it.

The finished product!

I have always loved the polka dots, and enjoy using them in projects, but something I hadn’t thought of was nesting them. This is the first project I have used the black rhinestones on, still not sure if I love them.

Hope you like and thanks for reading,

My first Color Combo Card

So in the interest of starting to be more original in my cards, I am embarking on my first color Challenge. (and although I am Canadian and color should be spelled colour, I will stick to the USA spelling to maintain consistency) I am taking part in 365 Cards color combo challenge.

I am in love with the green in this, and I just got a pack of Canyon Clay from Papertrey Ink, that I was itching to test out. So this is what I came up with…

I haven’t picked up the new flower die from PTI, but just loved the look of the flowers, so recreated it with scissors. Worked out pretty well. I am diggin the sentiment and how the stamped leaves go behind the words. I think that if I make this one again, I want to spread out the die cut leaves, have it cover more of the card. I will have to play with it.

For some reason my lighting makes the Simply Chartreuse buttons look yellow. But I promise they are a perfect match to the leaves. I finished them off with some twine.

Thanks for reading!
