Global Design Project Colour Challenge - From Land to Sea

Hi there! Om my goodness I have just noticed it's been nearly three weeks since I have posted on here!  Life is so busy 😢 with not nearly enough crafting!

I did however manage to make this card over the last few days! Yes! Sad hey...  it took me three days of here and there to finish a card. Very frustrating!

So here it is:

This card was made with the Global Design Project colour challenge. I really love this colour combination. It's Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Island Indigo. If you don't recognise the 'seaweed' stamp, I have used the Jelly Fish stamp upside down! I saw a card on pinterest with this stamp used as seaweed and thought it was a genius idea!

Click on the image below to see their challenge blog and see the amazing projects from the design team and entrants.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have enjoyed my 'first for a loooong time' card today!

Til next time,

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop - CASEing Dena Rekow

Hello and thank you for joining our fantastic team on our Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. This month we are have a very special guest joining us, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from the US, Dena Rekow, from

In case you are not sure, CASE stands for Copy And Selectively Edit..... we take a card or project and use it to create our own. This could be the colour pallet used, the stamp set used or perhaps the sketch.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Nicole Spicer - or may have come from the person previous to me. Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

The particular card I chose to CASE today was a no-brainer! I knew I wanted to use the Botanical Builder Die as I had not used the vine die before! My other stipulation I had was a clean and simple card because I needed to make a sympathy card. I'm sure when you see Dena's amazing card, you'll understand what I mean!

Here is my card. I went with a basic colour pallet as I really wanted the flower and leaves to pop. Also this was the first time I've used that vine die so I decided to keep it pretty simple!

Here is the inside of my card. I've left it plain with just the sentiment from the stamp set. This card is for a friend who lost his wife to Mesothelioma last week so I didn't want to overdo the inside. Plus, my hubby will want lots of room to write.

So here is Dena's card. Isn't it just gorgeous!

Well I hope you have enjoyed my CASE of Dena's card. Please leave me a message if you can, I love to read what people have thought of my projects!

Here is the blog line up. Remember, you are visiting with Nicole Spicer, so please click on the person under me to continue your journey on our Blog Hop.

Before I go, I just want to wish all the Mothers out there a very big HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY from Australia!
