Flowers & Love

Hi there!  

I'm popping in with cards for a few challenges.  First up is for CAS Colours and Sketches and the CAS on Friday dies challenge.  The flower is an ancient My Favourite Things die and the Poppy Stamps thank you die was a gift from my lovely friend Hazel.  The flower comes in 3 sizes so I layered them up to create the cool striped look.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Blushing Bide, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Stem from Bold Blooms) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (Wild Wasabi) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Flower & leaf trio) My Favourite Things, (Thank you) Poppy Stamps
Other:  (Nuvo Rhubarb Crumble Drops) Tonic
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is a design inspired by Anita's card at Muse.  I focused on the flowers and the sentiment layered over them.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (So Saffron, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers from Larger Than Life) Papertrey Ink, (Sentiment from Monkey Business) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Pink Diamond, Frayed Leaf, Sea Glass, Soft Lilac) Altenew
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Larger Than Life) Papertrey Ink
Twine:  Darice
Gems:  Recollections

Finally is a card for Colour Throwdown, AAA Cards and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge.  Lots of love themed challenges out there at the moment and this Paper Smooches love die is bold and fun.  I covered the letters in Aqua Shimmer Glitter which is my new favourite! Lots of sparkle in real life. 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (Regal Rose, Real Red, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (You from Halftone Hello) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Love) Paper Smooches, (Heart) Taylored Expressions
Glitter:  (Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss) Tonic
Gems:  Recollections

Lovely selection of cards. The three layers of petals on the flower on the first card is very striking. Thanks for sharing with us on the CC&S Challenge.

You have a terrific assortment of fun cards here, Jen! The stripes add a touch of pizzazz to the flower, and I like how it's "growing" from the sentiment. Thanks for making CC&S part of your crafting time and for sharing your card with us! :)
