Eastern Blooms Birthday Card

Here's a card I loved making using one of my favourite SU colours - Rose Red.
I made this card for a friend and knew she would love this colour combination.

I have used the Eastern Blooms set from the December mini, a set I love at the moment.
The branch is inked with Old Olive and the flowers were inked in Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and then cut out. I raised them onto the branch with dimensionals.
I stamped some of the images from this set randomly onto the Rose Red card for the background and added an extra piece of cardstock which I scalloped.
The ribbon is Whisper White grosgrain and I have added a small round buckle from the Stylised Silver Hodgepodge hardware. The sentiment is from Greetings Galore.

Till next time,

Birthday Card for my brother.

I made this birthday card for my brother. I am enjoying getting back into watercolouring and had a blast with this card. I have used the For Father set from SU (Dec. mini). First use of this set and I love the images. So great for male cards.
I have watercoloured using So Saffron, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel and completed the card using the same cardstock colours.
I have kept the card layout simple so the focus is on the watercoloured image.

Thanks for visiting.

I'm Back.

Hi everyone, I am finally back to blogland. Been extremely busy with Christmas, New year, Two year old toddler and my pregnancy that I have not had the time to sit down and create anything let alone put it on my blog.

Now that life has sort of settled down I will get into the swing of posting again.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I can't believe it is already nearing the end of January. Hope all you Aussies had a awesome Australia Day yesterday and enjoyed the holiday.
