This month, I have created a bright floral card making my own stencil to create the background.  I simply die cut the Flowering Dogwood flowers and leaves several times quite closely together. (photo attached below). I then inked through it using the yellow and orange inks, added the birthday sentiment, along with some delicately inked flowers.  No twine this month, but added this metallic thread which I really like and some foliage to complete.

This month, I took inspiration from the pink flowers in the above July HC graphic and decided to have a go at some simple water colouring.  I simply stamped the wild rose flowers, heat embossed them using gold embossing powder, then painted them with the watercolours. With the left over ink, I created some droplets for the background after masking off the painted flowers. I needed a simple sentiment to complete the card so masked off the unwanted part of the stamp to leave just the birthday. Added the natural twine (again) to complete!

This month, I have made a simple and a little rustic looking card.  Using the beautiful Wild Rose Paper Collection, I die cut lots of the paper strips using the sentiment die and have paper pieced them together onto a piece of card to create a background, including a sentiment centrally.  Then simply added the natural twine, two small wild rose flowers along with some leaves and a flourish to complete.

Added a lovely framed sentiment; then completed with some leaves and a few pearls to finish.

I really liked the card I made last month, so I have used similar colours/flowers in my project this month.  I have done some simple stamping to create a background, added a lovely framed sentiment; then completed with some wild rose flowers and leaves - I had to add a little twine to finish off the card!

Today I decided to make a simple stamped birthday card using some of my newest stamp and dies purchased.  I went back to basics with simple stamping, colouring, die cutting and flower shaping and love how my card turned out.  Loving the pastel colours, especially at this time of the year!  I have added a little twine to finish off the card, was very tempted to add some pearls or beads to the flower centres but decided not to for a change.

Today I decided to make a simple Christmas card using the Best Wishes tag die and use then as baubles.  I tried it in the traditional colours, but then changed my mind and opted for some pink! I added some shimmer sparkle to the pink card underneath and some pink twine and the usual pearls to complete!

Would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and thank you for all your lovely comments this year!x

Today the Alumni team are sharing creations made with the Black Friday release from Heartfelt Creations - The Elegant Gateway Dies and Accents Collection.  The die I have used is the Ornate Flourish Gateway Die, which I die cut mainly in white, added some ink around the decorative insert pieces and then added my flowers.  The flowers are stamped in pink using the sunflower stamp, I then added the centre accent from the flowering dogwood flower collection along with the matching leaves and a gem for the centre to complete.
