Floral Cards x 3


I'm popping in to share a few cards I've made this week during stolen crafty moments. Not getting many, but having fun when I do. :)

Since I'm on a mission today with many tasks, I'll get right to it!

My first card is made with some of my MFT goodies. :) Those all are still "new" to me. I'm excited I've found "new stuff" that has me excited about crafting again. I think I was getting bored with my same ole-same ole! And we can't have that -- can we?

I combined the MFT Sketch Challenge (Which I have missed sharing with that link-up. Raise your hand if you're surprised.) and the colors from Pals Paper Arts.
I used Blueprints 13, the Gerbera Daisies Die-Namics, and Harlequin stencil (with lightweight spackling applied over it). The sequins are from CTMH (they come with adhesive already on them. What-what?!) and the sentiment is from Totally Happy.


My next card was fun to make (for me). I enjoyed it. I used the Painted Flowers set from Altenew and my Stamp Press (that's new to me and I'm loving it!). I was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch!

I stamped in "rainbow" colors and lined up my flowers as best I could with my press and grid mat. I still was off in a couple of places but it worked out well (for me). I'm the worst about wanting to eyeball stuff and then being mad it's not straight! ha! So I'm practicing and getting more comfortable with lining up using this method and really like it.
The sentiment is from PTI's Fancy That stamp set. I stamped it in Black Versa Fine ink then heat embossed it using Clear EP.
I'm also playing along with Addicted To Stamps "CAS" challenge.
My last card is another CAS Black and Colorful flowers. I was on a little kick this weekend (I still have another to share later!).
I used Altenew's Hennah Elements and Label Love (both new to me). And colored them in with my Spectrum Noir markers. The label is gold embossed then trimmed and adhered using foam tape.

That's all for me this morning. Still having a busy week, but some openings just came up in my schedule and I hope to totally take advantage of it with some quiet crafty time. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit - hope you liked everything!

God Bless,
