TO40 - Beautiful Day


My friend and fellow Toronto Crafty Girl, Tracey is the inspiration at the current Time Out challenge with this gorgeous card:




I sat down this afternoon, determined to make one card for Time out AND this week's Muse challenge. It should have worked. But it didn't. The good news is that I now have two pretty cards (I will post the Muse card on Saturday).

I focused on Tracey's
-floral theme (I used Impression Obsession Watercolour Wildflowers)
-pink, yellow and blue (OK, I added some green!)
-theme and colour of sentiment (I used my brand new WPlus9 Doodle Buds set)

To highlight the sentiment, I did something that I just saw Jennifer McGuire do in her latest video. I used only 3 sides of a rectangle die (mine's an Avery Elle double pierced rectangle)

Those water colour wild flowers stamps are just gorgeous. Very delicate card and the idea with the sentiment works beautifully.

How lovely, Ardyth ... those soft, subtle, drifting-in-the-breeze blooms are just gorgeous ... wonderful with that delicious sentiment (one of my current faves)! So delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, mon amie! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Ardyth a very beautiful card, those flowers are so pretty and I didn't notice the green until you said it! I love that new technique and your new WPlus9!

Gorgeous colors - perfect for the abstract flower images! GREAT three sided sentiment block - such a cool idea!

Great to see you at TO and with such a pretty take on Tracey's card. Like the idea of using the 3 sides to focus on the sentiment x

Gorgeous flowers, and I love how you have emphasized the sentiment with your embossing/die cutting. I must have missed that video, but it is a great technique. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

Ardyth, this is so pretty and just love the way you stamped the flowers and leaves. And I must go and find the video you watched about the three-sided die-cutting, I'm very intrigued (and its looks so cool!). Always so very happy to see you at TIME OUT too!!
