My First Challenge card

Boho Indigo 

Good Monday Morning Ladies, 

Wow what a lovely weekend,  the weather was lovely, a little breezy but that meant the washing dried in no time.  Did you all enjoy it?  

I have chosen the Stampin Up! Boho Indigo collection for this weeks challenge,  it has stamps, dies and papers, I will mainly focus on the stamps and dies I think, they are a lovely set of Vases and foliage and sentiments. 

For todays card I wanted to use the Kraft card and Night of Navy colour combination. So I started with a Kraft card base,  followed by a mat of Navy card with a piece of the the Boho Indigo papers matted on top, I die cut a scalloped circle to draw your eye into the main focus of the card, I used the circle to place two of the vases, 1 stamped in Crumb Cake, 1 in Night of Navy,  both stamped onto Kraft card, I die cut them and added foam pads to the back and placed them onto the card front,  I then die cut a selection of the foliage dies to add to the vases and I added some of the tiny flowers too.  I used some Navy Ribbon to the neck of one vase and topped it with another little flower. I stamped the sentiment and used a punch to cut the label for the sentiment. 

I hope you like my card, I am really looking forward to playing with this collection some more.

I hope that you all have a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you, 

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx

  5. Hello all, sunny but very windy, dried the washing great.

    Sandra lovely card for today, love that set of dies, I have the previous set with the jar, used it a lot to begin with, but then put it away.

    I have been turning up Rs new trousers this afternoon so no crafting, hope to have a look tomorrow.

    Sending hugs to all, Lilian

  6. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    Lovely card today Sandra, I’m sure you will really enjoy using these dies and stamps.

    Had a busy day in the garden. Moving some plants around, John did the grass, he always goes around with the edging spade first, it’s looks tidier with the edge trimmed. Tomorrow should be a little warmer than today so it could be another day in the garden.
    Take care everyone, love Brenda xxx

  7. Hi ladies
    Love your card Sandra made with this fab set from SU, can see why you like it a lot.

    Went this morning for a coffee at a garden centre. Sat outside, not open yet for indoors so was a bit chilly but nice. Bought a plant for the front so helped OH to plant it back home. Not sure with you but the last few days of night frost has curled up and killed a lot of new sprouts on the plants but hopefully they will come back soon. No crafting done today so hoping tomorrow I can start on something.

    Hope you had a nice day and will have a good night. Many hugs Maria xx
