A Happy Accident

IMG_1825[1]Where does inspiration come from? This is a question that many card makers ask. An idea might come from Pinterest or be inspired by other people’s lovely work.

My card was a happy accident. I was working away at my table making something else entirely, and I saw a cut out piece of cardstock and a colour and suddenly this card popped into my head!! Also Zinnias popped into my head too. They probably look nothing like my card. What do I know, I am really a crafter and the only time I have green fingers, is when I get ink on them, lol!

I created this card with the botanical framelets by stamping the scroll from Timeless Treasures in Watermelon Wonder then cutting it out with the botanical framelet. If I did this again I would mat the Very Vanila onto a piece of Watermelon cardstock to give the design more of a “frame”.

If you would like to join one of my classes, I run them Monday nights in Meonstoke. You would be most welcome. Booking is essential, as spaces are limited. You can contact me either on 07881027800 or rosie@occasionalpapercrafts.co.uk.

Until next time, happy crafting.

Flowering Faces

Back with Friends and Flowers stampset again! Just love this set and again this card popped into my mind.
I love to work with a monochrome palette and let the design itself be the creativity. Adding colour might have spoilt its very simple design. The centre of the flower was cut using the new botanical framelets but still only using the wisteria cardstock. The die cut adds dimension to the flower, just like stamens in real life.

If you would like to learn how to make cards I run classes in Meonstoke on Monday nights. Booking is essential, as places are limited. You can contact me either on 07881027800 or rosie@occasionalpapercrafts.co.uk.

Until next time, happy crafting.
