HOT Blooms!

Hey!

How are we all this fine Wednesday? All is good here in the studio and the week seems to be flying by! I spent some time yesterday getting creative and made a couple of cards to share with you all...




Whist on a blog land mooch yesterday lunchtime I came across another NEW to me challenge blog called Papertake Weekly Challenge.




As you may know I like a good challenge, they are a great inspiration when you want to create but don't know what products or colours to use. The current Papertake Weekly Challenge HERE is HOT HOT HOT. Quite a loose challenge which could be taken in various directions. 

I decided to use a HOT colour scheme of bright pink, yellow and a bright green to create this crisp CAS card above. I paired Uniko Studio's Flower Power #2, Natures Treasures and Background Builders: Chevrons on my card and I'm liking the result!




I enjoyed this colour scheme and combination of stamps that I went on to make another card...




This time I used another NEW to me challenge blog CAS - Colours & Sketches Blog. Their current challenge seen HERE and below is a sketch challenge.




For my card I started out by drawing lightly with a pencil the over lapped horizontal and vertical panels onto my white mat layer. I then masked them off so I could stamp one of the smaller leaves from Uniko Studio's Natures Treasures I. I stamped the blooms from Flower Power #2 and the leaves from Beautiful Blooms I and fussy cut them out before adhering to the card using glue dots for a bit of dimension but not as much as foam adhesive would give...




That's all from me today, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share & on Friday we have Abbie (my current work experience intern) with a guest blogger post to share her first creations using Uniko Studio products! 

Thanks for stopping by today, 



Supplies:
Card Stock: White from stash, PTI Raspberry Fizz
Ink: SU! Lucky Limeade, Pear Pizzaz and Pumpkin Pie. PTI Raspberry Fizz & Summer Sunrise
Accessories: Glue Dots & Rhinestones.

    My stamps were at Mum's when I arrived on Monday. Now all I have to do is visit the local craft shop and get a few supplies and I may even have a card or two to share next week!
