CBD Flowers

Hello again, 

Today brings us to a new Challenge for Crafting by Designs, we would love you to join in our challenge and this week the challenge is Flowers or Floral, we have one fabulous sponsors this week Beccy’s Place will be giving the lucky winner a $10 gift certificate for their store.

PRIZE $10 gift certificate

I have used a stamp from the Beccy’s Place Waratah set, being an Aussie I love to find Australian stamps and images. The Waratah is the floral emblem of NSW, the state that I live in, according to local Aboriginals the Waratah was a flower seen from afar, which the warriors of the tribe used to remove from the plant and soak the flower head in water and drink the resulting sweet drink for an energy boost. We have them growing in both the front and back garden. I am also sharing two pictures from our garden, the first one has begun opening and the second is still closed up. 


Here is my card:-


I coloured the image using Derwent and Faber-Castell pencils, die cut with an MFT stitched oval die teamed with some papers from the Kaisercraft paper pad called Open Road which features Australian flora, fauna and iconic images of our country. I have used the coloured border (which looks like bark of a gum tree) from the spine to stamp my sentiment onto to make a card for my Mum for Mother’s Day.


This challenge is open until March 26th, you can add your project by using the Linky tool over at Crafting by Designs. Please be sure to link your project back to us.

What I used:-
White 12.4x17.5cm card blank 
Faber-Castell and Derwent coloured pencils
Gold embossing powder
Clear embossing ink
Kaisercraft Open Road papers
Kaisercraft Mini Clear Stamps ‘Occasions’

CBD- For the Boys

Hello again,

PRIZE 3 Digi Stamps

I have used a stamp set freebie from my magazine subscription to make a birthday card, the set includes a few flowers and pretty vase and a mason style jar which I have used here. I have stamped and heat embossed the mason jar, fish and sentiment in silver, gold and black. Using up some scrap distress oxide background pieces to make the jar and the fish, I die cut the circle background with some adhesive sheet attached to a scrap of black card, cutting it in two to make it fit across the width of the card front.
