Florals, in CAS & vintage

Written by: iwona    16 Comments

I wish I could say that I’ve got some baby photos to share, but hey! instead I’ve got something that surely interests you more… 🙂 Two cards to share today, a result of the last night very nice inky session. I had a three days’ break before, I believe; I know that for many of you it’s a perfectly natural thing to do but not quite as much for me. I’m sure at least you can very well understand me, right? 🙂

Anyhoo, here’s the first one – a vintage-y, collage-y shtuff that I made up with the aid of the Cardabilities sketch #74 and The Ribbon Reel Challenge #52 (below).

The roses and banners come from the cheapie, no-name die-cut pack that I picked in the local craft store, it’s full of cute things but I must apologize for the lack of solid reference on it. The rest is a fine mix of Glitz Design, Kaisercraft and a few other bits & pieces.

The next card is much on the other side, design-wise. The background is done by adhering strips of washi tape (My Mind’s Eye), the lovely poppies is a Kaisercraft stamp that I picked up a few days ago. So nice to colour but sweet enough looking on their own as well!

This one is also based on the challenge inspiration, namely retro sketches #62 and Play Date Cafe.


Which one do you like better? See you soon! xx
