Another aunt of mine celebrated her birthday this year, she turned 55! I made this card for her after spending some time on pinterest looking for inspiration!
Today we celebrate mother’s day here in Sweden so I made a card for my mother. I had a lot of fun playing with my new stencil from memory box; chic chevron. I used another stencil from a company I can’t remember for the chicken wire.
I decided to go for a color challenge and I found this week’s Color Q challenge #242: kiwi kiss, daffodil delight, melon mambo, tempting turquoise and white. The green ink pad I found was named kiwi but looks much more bright than I expected from that name. I do however like the color combination of all of these colors! Very happy and bright!
I made another birthday card today, inspired by this week mojo monday challenge #299
I looked through my paper stash and found this icecream patterned paper from echo park which I’ve owned for years and never used. It was time!
I wanted the card to look like summer so I went for bright and happy colors, I could have used brighter/lighter colors on the gifts but I wanted it to bring out the blue and green colors from the background since the other details were pink, orange and yellow. I colored the flower with my dylusion spray london blue and added some pearl mist to lighten up the color a bit, and to add some shine of course! I might add some stickles to the stamp, I haven’t really decided yet.
The yellow ribbon is another thing that has been lying in my stash for ages, I’m not really a fan of yellow but I’m working on it on all levels, just got myself a yellow summer dress!
