Boho Indigo card 2


Good Morning Ladies,  

Thank you for the lovely comments on yesterday's card, I actually really like this collection, one of the reasons is the lovely foliage,  then the vases which after this challenge is finished I will use with so many other stamps and dies I already have.  The other part of the collection is the lovely patterned papers all in Navy and cream, all so lovely, there are embossed papers and gold foiled labels ready for adding your sentiment.   Making more than one card is so easy. 

So for todays card I used a piece of Very Vanilla to create my card base I then added a piece of the decorative paper and matted a piece of the V.Vanilla paper that was pre-embossed  onto gold mirror card to echo the gold foiling in the printed foliage and labels in the collection. I stamped one of the vases in Night Of Navy and then pressed a versamark ink pad over the whole vase and added clear embossing powder and heat set. This gave the vase a porcelain look, I popped it on some foam pads and adhered to my matted, embossed piece, next step was to add some foliage, the back two where adhered flat and the one in the front is on foam pads to make the vase look full., to finish the vase I added a gold twine bow and then I added the sentiment stamped onto one of the labels. 

A quieter day for me today as Paul is working, the girls have the day off though, I don't generally see too much of them if they are off together as they usually do something together, which I love, it's just nice having them in the house, we always eat lunch together and they will come down for coffee every couple of hours, they love their music too so there is always something to hum along to!

I hope that you enjoy your day however you are spending it.

Love and hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Ladies

    What a contrast to yesterday’s card-just as lovely but my favourite, probably because Of the colour. Blue is my absolute favourite colour.

    Yesterday was busy but ok and my meeting was cancelled-yeah! Even better-we’re finishing making Pfizer vaccines this week so I’ll have more staff in the department.

    We have a dull start to the day with grey clouds-I’m hoping it’s going to rain as the garden is so dry.!


    1. I’m glad to here that yesterday wasn’t to busy Michele.

  2. Morning Everyone
    Love today's card and as blue is one of my all time favourites you couldn't go wrong.

    We too have a grey start and yes we would like some rain as everything here is so dry.
    I have one or two little tasks to do today or so my list informs me whether they get done is another matter.lol.

    The CAFE as usual is Open if you want to visit for a little peace and quiet.HUGS are winging their way toyou all.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  3. Love the card and a totally different look from yesterday’s Blue is my favourite colour anyway
    I’m glad it seems work is calming down for you MICHELE
    We have clear blue skies with a few wispy clouds Just need it to warm up a bit now
    I still can’t decide what to pick for my theme!

    1. Like ours Karen your area seems to be doing well with the vaccinations.

  5. Hi Sandra & ladies
    Bother lovely card using the same set. Dull and cloudy here today. Meeting my friend Beryl today for a coffee at Yarnton this afternoon. Hopefully it’ll stay dry. They have build an outdoor patio but it’s not under cover.
    Take care & stay safe everyone.

  6. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    Lovely card today, the blue and gold is just perfect. Thank you for the inspiration.
    It’s nice to have the girls at home today even if they are doing their own thing, but that is nice you’re all comfortable in your own surroundings and I’m sure you will all have a very productive day, sending love to you all.
    Maria I hope the thumb is healing nicely.
    Lynda, Hope you’re coping and will get your operation soon.
    Margaret sending hugs as always.
    It’s lovely that some of you are getting out to meet up with friends, so many businesses have provided outdoor space for us to meet up, For me I just wish it was a little warmer.
    Hope everyone is having a good day, sending love as always Brenda XXX
