Vintage Summer alliums

Hello lovely people,

Are you all having a good weekend?  I do hope so :-)

I have been having a little play in my craft room and despite the cloudy weather I have been bringing a little Summer to my crafting today.

I have made a LOTV card to support the challenge currently running on the LOTV Facebook page with the theme of SUMMER IN THE GARDEN.

I was sorting through all my paper pads a couple of days ago and removing the ones I am never going to use, but it also reminded me of a few oldies but goodies lurking in these pretty Kaisercraft ones.

Colouring this image is very simple but you can still add plenty of detail and I added some very pale green dots around the flower heads and some white Nuvo drops around the whole image.

I made this feel quite vintage with inked edges, Kraft card and twine, and I layered up 3 of the word die cuts to make it stand out a bit more.

I'm now off for a cheeky afternoon tea as I have a couple of homemade scones that need eating up with some jam and clotted cream...yum :-)

Then Dr. Hubby and I are going to snuggle up and watch the latest Star Wars film in our cinema room...we haven't seen it yet so am rather excited about that!

  4. Lovely card Kat...but then everyone you make is!! Enjoy the film!

  5. Loving this gorgeous image Kat and of course, your card is beautiful! I think I have that butterfly paper lurking somewhere too... I mean, what haven't I got in that room? LOL! The walls are groaning a little now! I do love Aliums - although ours haven't done so well this year - probably down to the weather!

    Hope you enjoyed your film... we also sat and watched a DVD because it was throwing it down here yesterday... We watched The Railway Man with Colin Firth... I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Big hugs

  7. Beautiful card Kat, The image is so pretty and like the Nuvo drops around it. Gorgeous papers and nice addition of the butterflies and twine. Hugs Jennifer xx

  10. I love the colours you've used to make this gorgeous card and the way you've layers up the die cut words. Vintage without the fuss.
    Love Alli Xx

  11. Love the soft vintage feel of this and love this pad, I think it's Tiger Lily isn't it? Hope you enjoyed the film! :) xx

  12. It's far too long since I've stopped by your blog hun, the days are just mental when the kids are on school break. But I've been swooning over your delish creation on FB, so really wanted to do a bit of a catch up! Love this card to bits, the blooms are fabulous and the little details are perfect, love the effect the wee green dots and white around the edge give. Gorgeous papers, they were well worth rediscovering and the Vintage feel is just right for them! Love the wee butterflies, such a simple and perfect finish with the twine and the layering up of the sentiment too, so clever and so effective! Love this one to bits! Hugs, Wends xoxo
