We’re into the second week of our current colour challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. For last week’s launch post I shared a pretty floral card. This week for the reminder post I went with a more graphic design.
It’s definitely getting Summery here in Southern Finland recently, so I thought it would be the perfect time to create a Summer-themed birthday card. I focused on how to make your own tone-on-tone patterned paper for this design.
Have you joined in our friendship challenge at Cupcake Inspirations yet? It started last week, and you can see the first card I made for it here. For the reminder post I decided to create a one layer CAS design with a flower. I wanted it to be bright and colourful, and what better than … More CIC 495 | Rainbow Rose | Friendship
I took a break from my design teams whilst I was unwell, but I am at last getting back to them, one by one. Today we have a new challenge starting at Cupcake Inspirations, and I think it is a very apt theme – Friendship. I think that friendship and acceptance of one another is … More CIC 495 | Friends Are Like Flowers | Friendship
I’ve been all about sharing coffee cards lately, but now that the coffee hop is over I’m going back to other things instead. This evening (a bit later than planned – thanks for your patience!) I’m sharing a bright birthday card that I painted.
This card is one of those that starts out with one idea and ends up changing track part way through. I was planning on going for spring colours, but somehow ended up looking more autumnal! In any case, this is my fifth card for the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop, and I decided to make a … More Congratulatory Tea | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Are you ready for another coffee card? I decided to revisit the colour palette I used for this card and go bee-themed again. What do bees have to do with coffee? Not sure, but it’s cute!
It’s crazy to think that I took a two month break from crafting, and now I’ve posted three days in a row – and twice today! Even before I got sick I hadn’t been posting regularly. I certainly seem to have got my mojo back, and I hope it lasts. Yesterday and the day before … More Make A Wish | Bright Lily | Uniko
I timed my return to card making pretty well – I’m just in time for the Coffee Lovers Hop! I always enjoy playing along with this hop. It’s always such a fun time, and Amy is a gem for all the work she puts in to organising it.
I had a plan for this card, and that plan involved elephants. As you can tell from the picture, that plan didn’t work out. Bear with me on this… See, I knew I wanted grey to be one of my main colours for this baby card. And elephants are grey! Perfect, right?
