Color Hues #17 - Red & Orange

Hi there! 

Time for some red hot colors in Color Hues Challenge #17




When I struggle with colors, I always fall back on a tried and trusted recipe for color challenges : Stripes... made form scraps of card stock, and of course, my Silhouette cameo !

I used this fortnights colors to make a birthday card for our youngest daughter who turned 25 this week on the 26th of April ! Happy Birthday Daniélle !



I used :

  • Scraps of card stock in red, white and 2 different shades of orange 
  • Center panel designed in the Silhouette studio using the font named Bodoni FLF
  • Banner cutting file from Miss Kate Cuttables
  • Enamel dots
  • Birthday sentiment also in the same font as the number 25
  • Foam squares for dimension

I hope to see you in the gallery!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Loads of Lavender

 Hi there!

One of the things on my bucket list is to visit the lavender fields in France. I can imagine strolling through and experiencing all the color and fragrance ! 

So for now...until we can get rid of Covid , internet pictures of lavender will have to do, and lavender themed cards of course ! I had to play along at The card concept...and couldn't believe I had just the right image for the challenge !

I made a clean and simple card inspired by the whole picture . The theme, the colors, the texture and of course that bow!







 I used :

  • Breathe-in-life digital stamp from Power Poppy
  • Zig markers
  • Brick wall embossing folder from Tim Holtz/ Sizzix
  • Zig markers Pearls 
  • Silhouette cameo to cut out the bow from gingham patterned paper
  • Sentiment designed in the Silhouette studio (shared below - you are welcome to download - right click and save)

Poppy birthday wishes

 Hi there!

It's been a while since I joined the fun at Fusion Card challenge, but I couldn't resist this fortnight's inspiration picture. The sketch worked for me, so I decided to combine the two!








 I used :

  • Perfect poppies digital stamp from Power Poppy
  • Trellis designed in the Silhouette studio
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Snow Background stamp from Altenew
  • Altenew ink
  • Zig markers
  • Sentiment from Simon Says stamp beautiful Flowers set
  • Foam squares

I used the poppies (poppy) as focal point, just like the inspiration picture. I decided on the orange as main color and incorporated the rest of the bouquet colors in the background. I added score lines to the background to mimic those in the photo and combined elements from the grey water can and the vertical strip in the sketch.


Challenges :

 Seize the birthday  ~ If the poppy is seen as a Spring flower, I am playing with the topping option ... otherwise the no topping option 😊
