Dreaming and A Present for Grandma


Its a recipe this week on Lili of the Valley Challenge
3 Brads (or Buttons) - 2 Papers - 1 Flower
Don't forget you can use any images or papers on your creation not just Lili of the Valley.


Well I have managed to use just one flower it was a struggle, I compromised and used a rather large Prima Flower, these are my specials I only brought them to gaze at not to use he!he! I have also used my Ash Branch punch again, has anyone else had a problem with this punch? I find it will only punch through very thin paper, and thats with me standing on it. I have used another of my lovely Mimosa Stamps, I wonder who or what she is dreaming about? She has been coloured with Copics, I keep meaning to keep a note of the colours but I get disturbed and forget to do it. Used my beloved Nesties again and a Fiskars Border Punch. The papers are Making Memories. I have actually used two star brads and counted my paperclip as the third. Sentiment is SU.


The way I have taken the picture the inside looks wonky but it isn't IRL.




Truly Scrumptious Challenge No 1



Some of my favourite and talented blogging buddies have started a new challenge blog and I could not let the first challenge go without joining in. There is a Truly Scrumptious sketch to follow this week and a Truly Scrumptious Prize of 2 lovely Stamps, so go on support your fellow bloggers and join in. The DT have produced some great cards to get you started.



Little Willow has just picked some flowers and is taking them to her Grandma what a little treasure she is, she has been coloured with distress inks, the papers are from K&Co, I have punched the flowers from the same paper and have added spacers brads and a little heart charm from my stash. Willow is one of the stamps from Whiff of Joy Elizabeth Bell Spring Collection.
These are now available to buy as single stamps for the Whiff of Joy website.


I have used the same papers inside and punched out another head of Willow (it didn't hurt her I promise), The border down the side is a Rub-on from Imaginise.



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Boots the Monkey (Jo) said...

Your cards are stunning Jacqui and the images you have used are adorable, coloured to perfection too.

Yes, I have exactly the same problem with the same punch. I have read somewhere that if you put stiff punches in the freezer for 24 hours it contracts the metal and they are looser to use - not tried it yet ! Perhaps we ought to experiment ? LOL

Take care,

Jo x

Both of these cards are just so, so pretty! I love the color combos and the amazing textures you created with the punches. I find some of my punches have the same problem. It is very frustrating. I wonder if it is because of the small details!

Annie said...

gorgeous cards Jacqui and such pretty papers too. My friend got an ash branch punch and it just wouldn't work at all, she got a replacement but it's like you say, only works with paper and if you stand on it! I'm still on the look out for a delicate foliage die as I have problems with the bigger punches now that the arthritis is getting worse. hugs, annie x
