Pink delight!

I’m not a girly girl but I do love pink! I made a few for my nephew’s school fund raising event in Singapore.

I went crazy with my first stampin up “What I love” stamp set which I got for free when I ordered over 60€ of Stampin up products! I entered this card in

stamping sensationsFlower power March challenge. I used Stampin up’s Tempting turquoise to sponge the background and added some water drops to make it look “vintage”! Then I stamped the flowers using a combination of Stampin up’s melon mumbo and rick razzleberry.


This one went into the

The Card Concept Naturally Pink challenge.51

I love that they have different styles defined even though I haven’t completely understood the differences as i’m still a “baby” in the card making world! I think this fits into their clean and simple style. I used memory Box’s Loveland Corner to cut the shape in the card stock then I pasted a shiny paper behind it and added the butterfly from Les D’cos papillon 2.


This next one I just used the shape from the previous Memory Box die cut and pasted it on colours I stamped directly from Color Box cat’s eyes pigment ink dies! As I’ve had them for over 3 years they don’t make the ones I used anymore but they haven’t dried out yet!


I tried a ink emboss for my next card using an embossing folder from Design Objective but sponged around the image on the folder itself before I embossed it. I then cut an image using Sizixx’s Bigz L die standard shapes I got with my Big shot plus starter kit.20160322_110143

This butterfly tree card is my daughter’s favourite card! The background was first sponged with Tim Holz’s distress inks peacock’s feathers and a mixture of mustard seed and Versafine’s vintage speia which I also used to sponge the branches using a dry wet wipe! The butterflies were coloured with Tombow ink pens . I love this die from Spellbinders called Flutter tree! Its so versatile. I entered this card in Cute Card Thursday challenge 418 To die for!


Even though its not pink I just wanted to share a card I made using the same die cut.
