Die Cuts Galore!

Just popping in with a super quick post as I’m off to my summer house as I have girlfriends arriving from the UK and Australia for our annual weekend by the sea”The Balcony Girls” as we like to call ourselves haven’t been able to all get together for three years because of covid. Having a broken arm doesn’t help matters as I love to cook and take care of everyone, this time round I will with all difficulty have to let others take care of me, and being the bossy so and so I am it might be another three years before I see them again.

On to my card……

The gorgeous giraffe die is from Mr. Holtz’s colorize series I’m absolutely loving them even though there are some tiny weeny and I mean weeny pieces that tend to go missing and then turn up once I have cut them out again. My pink giraffe was coloured with distress oxides in kitsch flamingo and picked raspberry. The florals are from Spellbinders Be Bold Blooms set I love this set but once again there are some tiny pieces well actually they are all quite small and I had to cut about 100 flowers before I got the colour combo I liked. Luckily enough this card was made before I broke my arm as I would never have managed it. It’s been sitting on my desk waiting for the right challenge to come along. The wonky sentiment is also Spellbinders from sentiments by Yana Smakula hot foiled in gold.

Addicted to Stamps and More #435 are asking us to use die cuts or stencils

Inspiration Station #35 are asking us to use the photo below “Animal Kingdom” I was inspired by this photo seeing all of the animals living in harmony together.

Take care

  7. Such a fun card and beautifully thought out as always. Love that sassy pink giraffe against the embossed background and all those gorgeous little flowers balancing out your design. Have a cracking time with The Balcony Girls – might as well milk that broken arm for all its worth!! (But seriously, hope you are coping with it okay.) Sending hugs, Vicky x
