Welcome to the Stamping Dreams blog hop . This month we are sharing our favourite in colours . You are currently visiting Cheryl Algie I hope that you enjoy my projects While I love all of the 2017 - 2019 in colours I have to confess my two favourites would have to be Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst !
Both of these cards were created using the same braiding technique as demonstrated at our team retreat by Suzie Wouters . I have created two very different cards which use the same background and are also different cards to the one created at retreat !  am always amazed at how many different looks a card can have depending on how it is created !
Both cards were brayered using sponge brayers beginning with Lemon Lime twist and then continuing with Berry Burst - an awesome effect with just two colours ! But wait theres more as Susie showed us you can add some Powder Pink to take the edge off the Berry Burst
if you wish !
I have simply added a die cut , sentiment , bow and some rhinestones to complete the first card .

To the second sample I stamped the image added a sentiment and tied some silver metallic thread into a gorgeous bow ! A spritzing with my Wink of Stella completed this card .

Lastly I created another version of a gorgeous card mailed me by Sandra Mastello , our team leader for a recent RAK swap . I hope Sandra does not mind me re creating her design using current products . I adore the card Sandra sent me and will forever treasure it . Here is my version using the Daisy Delight stamp set .
Isn't it just such an adorable design ? I don't have a tutorial for this one and neither does Sandra - that's something i need to work on if I decide to use it for a class . I have used all of the in colours in this one . I loved using the small stamps in the daisy set , such fun ! I have stamped the small daisies onto Powder Pink card stock and snipped them out . The Soft Sky background was watercolored onto Shimmery White card stock. The foliage and tiny flowers were stamped directly onto the background . I used Tranquil Tide , Lemon Lime Twist , Fresh Fig and Emerald Envy. I hope you en
