August 2016 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

August 2016 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!


With the summer holidays in full swing here in the UK and as I spend time with my beans and family you might have guessed with no sneak peeks that there is no new release this month. So instead we have another Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY instead!

This month I decided upon the Pure Florals: Chrysanthemum clear stamp set, probably due to the lovely summer blooms that I am seeing on my days out and time in the garden!

This is what I came up with…


As usual I turned to a couple of challenges to spark my creativity! It’s been a little all over the place these past few weeks and so I needed a little help again 😉

For the layout of my card I used the new Freshly Made Sketches layout seen HERE and below.

FMS Final 249-001

I then needed a colour scheme for my card so I turned to the Color Throwdown seen HERE and below. A lovely summery combination this week perfect for florals.


Quite a simple CAS card with a little masking and stamping! I started by stamping the sentiment and masking it off to stamp the flower and leaves. I added a little more interest to the card by dividing my aqua strips of card rather than layering a white piece of CS to create the lines of the sketch.


Ok, that’s all from me, but there is more inspiration from the team…

    Stunning, Bev! Your Chrysanthemums remind me of those that bloomed in my grandmother’s garden. Oh, what a green thumb she had; her flowers drew neighbours from all over town, coming by to gaze in wonder. Her Chrysanthemums were show-stoppers…and your images have captured their beauty completely! Thank you for sparking treasured memories (as well as a wish for a garden of my own)…
