Simply a 'Thistle'

It's Colour Week at Just Us Girls and choosing
those 3 Colours as Host is Maria.
(Neutrals are welcome)

I had recently added a few more colours to my
Brusho stash and they came in extremely handy
for this weeks card. 
I used Yellow and Orange for my background
and since I only needed a small piece I
experimented with 2 different inks.
For my first card I used SU Rich Razzleberry
for my Lavinia Thistle. Everyone knows that is
my Favourite Flower (not a weed to me)
I inked up a script stamp and added it to the
background for effect. Finished with some
scoring and variegated cotton with a bow.
 I heat embossed the image above and found it
wasn't as dark as the stamped one. 
I made this while I had a friend visiting and she said
it would make a nice bookmark so that is just what I did.
I picked out the sentiment especially for her
which is from STAMPlorations and was heat embossed also.
Did a bit of distressing on the edges and 
added some yellow cotton to the top.

Aren't they just a gorgeous combination!
I loved playing with this one and hope you will

You are 'AWESOME'

Hi there Blogger Friends - 
My post today is for the current challenge

After seeing Kylie Purtell's Water Coloured Flowers
I knew I had to ink up my STAMPlorations Blossom Sprays 1 too.
Isn't it gorgeous!
I knew I wanted to just heat emboss it on kraft
as I just love using white/kraft together.
My sentiment is from MFT SimplyFabThings
and cut from a MFT stitched die heat embossed in white.
My other sentiment is from CUTplorations Awesome Word Die.
This was cut from a stitched die and
My card base and die  are from SU Groovy Guava.
A pretty cas easy card that came together nicely.

These are the stamp and die used above.

Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #56

Hello and Thanks for Popping in.
Today's post is for the latest Challenge over at
Cardz 4 Galz and choosing the Theme is Maryvonne.
Welcome Little Baby.
I have very little in the way of baby supplies but
lucky for me I found this Teddy and inked him up
with Altnew Coral Berry
My base is white and I embossed the front with
the old CB Swiss Dots folder.
Scrounged through my dp bits and found
this pinky piece cutting it on an angle and
punching the edge with a SU punch.
I then cut out my Teddy and added a frame
behind from Spellbinder dies.
Added glossy accents to his ears nose heart and paws.
My Congratulations is from paper Smooches
(love the funky font)
Tied some variegated cotton to finish.

That's it for me today.
Hope you will pop over and see what 
The Team have created and come join in.

A Quick Christmas Card

I was sorting through my Christmas card stash and
was surprised at just how few I have so  thought I would 
have a little play with a few new products.
I decided I would try Tim Holtz Antique Bronze
Distress  Spray Stain (very shimmery) squirting it a few times
on my card stock. This was cut from the
I liked the look for a background
then I cut out my  
Attached that to a cuttlebug embossed background
again using the same nesting die.
Finished with a simple Merry Christmas die from Lawn Fawn.
I kept it simple for easy posting. 
I am just in time to add it to 
#258 Holiday.

Also STAMPlorations are on vacation BUT
