Nordic Majestic Bloom for CR219

Happy Saturday everyone - hope you're enjoying the weekend! I multi-tasked yet again last night watching Craft Roulette #219 on my laptop & the Twins baseball game on television (we won!). I managed to finish my card just after the LIVE ended but waited til today to photograph it; a gloomy day but I made the best of it...

Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts Dove A2 card;
BoBunny Double Dotted; DCWV pastels; scraps
Stamps with Dies - Unity Stamps I Did. I Do. I Will. (die HERE)
Dies - Poppystamps Nordic Majestic Bloom;
Elizabeth Craft Designs Torn;

Host Mary Gunn FUNN had Carrie Giletto (her YouTube channel) as her guest. You may have seen her videos for Whimsy Stamps. The wheel spun the following parameters (screen shot during LIVE) for us to use on our cards:

  • Project - Anniversary: I chose to make a wedding anniversary card. The group agreed that celebrating anything that recurs could count, even Christmas!
  • Colors - Salad: I chose lettuce salad colors of green, reds (tomatoes, peppers), oranges (cheese, carrots),  white (onions). The group thought of many other types, including Jello!
  • Element - New: I chose a new die set that I'm using for the first time. Other thoughts by the group - New Year, newborn baby, a new technique.
  • Random - Folded Corner: I folded over the corner of one of my layers. Pretty self-explanatory.

I die cut 2 mat layers & all elements of the Nordic Majestic Bloom set and assembled onto an A2 card. The Unity sentiment came from the bits box - I'd stamped and die cut several of these when I made a previous card. The scalloped border was another new item recently purchased from ECD, our fabulous sponsor at Die Cut Divas June Challenge.

I'm adding my card to Darnell's June NBUS Challenge #63 since my bloom set got first play here.

That's it for today, friends! Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend!

Been on a vacay to Ohio to see the folks. So catching up. Have loved seeing your posts. You've been getting in both lovely winter and summer cards.

Fabulous card, Linda! You are so good at combining bold colors on your cards.

Love your card elements! That happy anniversary stamp/die is wonderful! I've been on the look out for one as all the ones in my stamp sets are so small.
