So many amazing and inspiring challenges around at the moment. I wish I had the time (and the brain power) to enter them all!!!
I just couldn't resist The Card Concept inspiration photo. Those happy daisies sitting in 'my favourite colour blue' box had me itching to create something. And I knew exactly which dies to use too:
I just love these flower dies and could picture them in my mind in yellow and white. I die-cut them from white CS and then just the flower heads from a yellow paint chip. I also die-cut the leaves from a green paint chip as well. I put the flowers together (with their different colours) by using small pieces of washi tape behind the pieces to keep them in place. I adhered them in place on the card front.
For the box I die cut the round-cornered square from a light blue paint chip and popped it up on foam tape over the flowers. I then simply stamped the sentiment in black on some white CS and glued it to the box. A sprinkle of yellow and clear sequins added some sparkle!! I'd say I went for the 'Clean and Layered' look.
The flower dies are from Paper Smooches 'Dainty Flowers' and the square die is from CAS-ual Fridays 'Funky Square Fri Dies'. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp 'Handwritten Sentiments'. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge where their theme is 'Love this Technique' and I'm always loving die-cutting!!
And will also enter the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Die Crazy', which I think I am at the moment.....
I'm off now to make a few cards and catch up with the latest episode of 'Fear the Walking Dead'. Goodie!!
I must share this with you. My son Max is 8yrs old and one of those kids that everyone likes and is good at anything he tries. He's also quite mature for his age. On the wall of the classroom today I saw these posters that the kids had done about themselves. They had to answer questions like 'Favourite food', 'who's in their family' etc. All of their answers were typical for their age. Max's one was quite different. He wondered if ghosts were real or not? Wanted Tip Top to bring back his favourite 'rainbow' ice-cream flavour. Wanted to visit New York City and wanted to know more about Algebra. How many 8yr olds are fascinated with Algebra??? Oh how I love that kid!!
