Flowers & Birdie

Life has felt a little crazy this week so I was happy to grab some crafty time today and play along with some challenges.  First up is a card for the current Paper Smooches Spring challenge using the palette from The Colour Throwdown.  It's an all die cut card which I don't do very often.  The flowers are Paper Smooches and the Thank You is from Poppy Stamps.  I used Nuvo Crystal Drops for the flower centres.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured White) Bazzill, (Real Red, Pretty In Pink, Mint Macaron, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Dainty Flowers 2) Paper Smooches, (Thank You) Poppy Stamps
Other:  (Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops) Tonic

Next up is a card for Freshly Made Sketches using some ancient My Mind's Eye papers, another Poppy Stamps die and an Avery Elle sentiment.  I am chipping away at the patterned paper stash little by little but it could still probably last me another 10 years!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Bloom & Grow 12x12) My Mind's Eye
Stamps:  (Sentiment from All Squared Up) Avery Elle
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Serene Bird) Poppy Stamps
Gems:  Recollections
Other:  (Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops) Tonic

Crafty time - I didn't have any this week either! I'm glad you found time today, because these are great cards. I like the contrast of the black with the springlike colours of the first card, and the second is gorgeous with the patterned papers!
