A neutral look.......

Hi there it's Anja again on this monday at the beginning of a new week.
For today I have a card for you created without having an idea where it should lead me....


I don't know about you but sometimes I really have no idea what card to make. I sit down and just start and look where it will lead me. So for this card I started with a white panel and stamped those leaves randomly on the card. I wanted to highlight the right area without using coloring so i embossed the dies for some extra interest. From there on the card was build up just by experimenting. I think I am satisfied how it turned out at the end.

As I mentioned before I started with a white panel and randomly stamped the leaves. I used a grey memento ink because I first wanted to color the images. I decided to leave them blank and highlight the area by embossing with the magical frames die. I stamped some flowers on vellum and white heat embossed them. Did some fuzzy cutting and arranged them onto the card. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto some red cardstock and placed upon the arranged flowers. Placed some white embroidery thread behind the flowers for some extra interest. Adhered some clear droplets ad random and finished the panel.
I wanted a bit more color and decided to use the colors of the panel with strips of red and dark grey cardstock. Placed it all onto a topfolded white cardbase and thus finished my card.


Botanical Love and Magical Flowers.

Cool cuts ( dies);

Magical frames;


pretty pink posh clear droplets;

When you have no idea which card to make just sit down and start stamping a background with a small image and see where it leads you. often you get the idea by just playing with your supplies and trying new things.
To pull a card together try to bring back the colors in your card by using strips of paper or just a little accent in the colors of your card.

We love to see your creations so place them in the sidebar.

Have a great week;



  1. Such a beautiful card, ii love it!

  2. This is a very unusual card, not the kind you would find on the shelf at your local card shop. I love it! I have the same problem sometimes. I start by getting out some card stock and maybe some stamps and then I'm stuck. I look around at my stuff and then, even though it may take a while, I come up with something. Sometimes I like those times because it makes me think out of the box and I come up with something really nice. I see you did that too.
