Simply Saturday - Started off CAS ;-)

Hello everyone.  Hope your weekend is going well so far.

Shannon and I are going out shopping today.  Just for clothes and stuff, but also need to get some jewelry for Prom which is only 3 weeks away!

I have what started out to be a CAS card for you today.

I jut couldn't cope with all that white space LOL!

Using the wonderful Polkadoodles Lemonade Fizz Collection.

I printed the pre-coloured flower onto water colour card, and then cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 8 Die.


Then using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out extra flowers to create layers, and also some butterflies.


For the inside I used one of the Toppers for my message panel.


All the edges of all the layers, flowers and butterflies have been inked.


For my butterflies, I finished them off with some seed beads and some 26 gauge wire.  I love how they turned out :-)


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fabulous Friday - Having a Purple Day

Hello out there in blog land.  I had all the good intentions of posting a little more this week, however family life events came in to play, so didn't get as much done as I had envisioned.

I am still behind with my visiting, so my apologies for that.  I will catch up :-)

Anyways, on with today's post.  It's the start of a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and our theme for this fortnight is Swirls and Flourishes.

I have you used the wonderful Lavender Tea Collection for my creation today.  However, I couldn't decide whether to use a scalloped circle or rectangle on my card.  So I made two :-)



I have inked all the edges of all the layers.  Adding little Flourish with a Bling Pearl dots to the centres of the flowers.



By layering and shaping the flowers, it added a little dimension.



Even the little teeny flower on the sentiment panel has been layered.



Which do prefer, the scalloped circle or the rectangle?

Thats all folks :-)

Simply Saturday - Happy Everything Day :-)

Hi everyone.  Hope you are having a great weekend.

We are off out to see the new Jungle Book movie today, actually find myself looking forward to it :-)

What are you all up to?  Spring has finally sprung (shhhh!) and the birds are chirping in the garden.

I have another card for you today from the wonderful Polkadoodles Winnie Fruit Punch collection.

I have been enjoying using this collection so much and love making the little flowers. The smallest flower in her hair is just 1/4 ".   I have started designing my whole card in the Silhouette Design program.  Then all I have to do, is print it and cut it with my Cameo.

Here is what my screen shot looked like after I finished designing it. (If you click on the photo it will appear bigger.)


Once I have finished designing, I then separate the pieces, print and then cut them all and then reassemble to make my card :-)

Here you go :-)


I have inked all the edges of all my papers, including the flowers.


For the inside message panel, I used the same tag as the front, just re-sized and the wording removed.


I love the pop of teal on this card and the orange of the flowers.


And who doesn't love shoes & bags LOL!


That's it for today.  Off to the cinema soon.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Peaches and creams for my colour palette - Spring seems to be finally on it's way here in this part of Canada, and I did actually see a bee the other day!
