Colorful Seasons - Blossoms

Hello & Welcome to my blog,
I have been playing with the Colorful Seasons bundle and was able to make a few decor pieces in addition to cards with relatively little effort aside from passing dies through the big shot.

I spray painted a branch with Black spray paint and cut a gazillion blossoms. To attach them I have used Tombow to adhere two die cuts, front and back of branch.

The next picture shows a quick jazz up of cheap tea light candle holder from Bunnings. 

The card was very simple to create as it's just two window Dies cut and glued with lightly sponged vellum behind.

The blue card in the front was inspired by a card created by Natalie Lapakko at and I have shared details on two of these cards in an earlier post.

Below is another home decor piece for my daughters bedroom. Spray painted gold Chinese lantern with the branches and blossoms adhered with tombow.


The card above was heat embossed in gold embossing powder on Black stock using the gorgeous sentiment from Colorful Seasons stamp set. A strip of gold foil either side of the card front was then attached to a Blushing Bride card base. The blossoms were stamped in Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight inks and then die cut and attached with tombow.

The card on the left uses the branch die to create the background Sahara Sand card stock. This was then adhered to a matt of Berry Burst with dimensionals and then attached to a Thick Whisper White card base. The sentiment was heat embossed in gold on vellum and attached using tombow and a sponge. The floral image are the Calla Lillies from the Remarkable You stamp set, and was water coloured using Berry Burst ink.
The gift box in the middle was simply decorated using Berry Burst card stock, some Fresh Florals DSP in Powder Pink, gold heat embossed sentiment on vellum, a doiley and a single blossom in Berry Burst card stock.
Hope my creations have inspired you to get into your crafty space and make some coordinating gifts for your cards - tags, gift boxes or home décor.
Till next post, stay crafty x
