You bring me joy !

 Hi there!

I fell in love with this "Swoopy flowers" set from Simon Says stamp the moment I saw it. It's been sitting on my desk since I received it, so yesterday was the day to ink it up. I was so eager to color it with the coordinating stencil, I colored the two flower buds on the sides green instead of yellow ! But the star of the show in the middle, looked so pretty I just decided to use it as is! Next time I will remember it's flowers and not leaves!  

I used :

  • Swoopy Flowers stamp and coordinating stencil 
  • Altenew inks
  • Gina K amalgam black ink
  • Silhouette cameo to cut out the flowers
  • Circle die as a mask 
  • Dot/bubble stencil (manufacturer unknown)
  • Foam adhesive tape from Altenew
  • Rhinestones

My card was inspired by four challenges :

Just us girls challenge ~ Mood board - I played with the flower/Spring theme, the yellows and greens, and the background was inspired by the picture of the lemons which look like little dots to me :)

Tic Tac Toe challenge ~ I playing with the diagonal row : Sentiment-Flowers-Stencil

The flower challenge ~ Die cuts/ stencils - I used a stencil for the BG and stencil to color the image.

The paper players ~ CAS - Spring has sprung 



Thanks for visiting me today!

Gorgeous. How do you use your Silhouette die cuts? Do you cut then stamp?

What a lovely card, Hannelie! This image looks amazing against the stenciled backdrop. I was so mesmerized by the image and the gorgeous color combination you used, that I did not even notice the buds were green. I think it looks great! Thank you so much for playing in my challenge this week at The Paper Players!

This is the sweetest card, Hannelie! It made me giggle when I read about your after the fact realization that they were not leaves but I think it looks fab as is, and why not use a bit of artistic license, right? I also love the stenciled background, it just makes everything pop. Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Flower Challenge!
