Gum Leaves & Blossoms


Hi, it feels like ages since I've made a card! I've been to the craft show in Brisbane with my sister and her friend Amanda and had a great time! Other than that work is flat chat so I've been too tired for crafting.

I used one of my new stamps from Kaszazz.


I stamped 2 images and cut them up to position them on a Memory Box twig. I coloured them with Prismacolor pencils and used flowersoft on the edge of the  blossoms.

I'm going to link up to a few challenges.

At Crafting with Dragonflies the theme is to create a card with trees, nature or leaves.
I embossed a scrap of tan cardstock with my Tim Holtz woodgrain folder, to use as my top layer so I'm visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Inkspirational has an anything goes challenge, so I'm going to slip a 2nd entry in there too.

At Make it Monday the theme for your card is always anything goes and to share creativity.

Materials used: Kaszazz stamp: Versafine ink & clear ep; Prismacolor pencils; Tim Holtz woodgrain ef; distress ink; Memory Box twigs & berries die; Flowersoft; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  2. That is a super bit of cutting & splicing done on your card. The flowers look like they have always been attached to the tiwg. I like those colours too.
    Still waiting for my acupuncture.
    Went to the back clinic on Tuesday only to find that they have had cut backs and I need to see my Dr for him to authorise otherwise they will not get funded. I need another 6 sessions plus possibility of 3 lots of injections straight into the hip and they can only offer me 3 extra appts with the current funding. Shame they could not have told me that when I booked the clinic as I had to wait 2 weeks for that appt. Seeing my Dr tomorrow and then will probably have to wait again to be seen by the same lady who will then be okay to agree to treatment.
