Hi and welcome.
It's the middle of the month so time for a brand new colour combo from Color Hues! Here's my take on Kristie's choice of colours.
You can see from this that I'm still in strip mode, paper that is! I made a decision at the beginning of lockdown to try to use my stock of bits and bobs up and not buy more stash, well other than white for card bases, I have managed to stay true. Using strips to make a background is a great way to use those odds and ends but it still leaves me with a mountain of coloured card and DP to use.
Taking a selection of pinks and purple card from my stash, I cut 1cm strips and arranged them onto a scrap of thin card, then using my PoppyStamps Lorelai leaf die, I cut 4 from a scrap panel of white card. These I layered up and placed the finished leaf spray over the top of my trimmed down panel. On a piece of black card, I stamped this sentiment from Altenew and heat embossed with white EP.
To finish the card, I added the center panel to an A6 card base and popped the sentiment strip on pads over the top.

Good afternoon folks. I can't believe we are in September already, where did August go. Well chez Beech, the OH has been busy sanding down our oak windows and painting the ones that don't need the double glazed units replacing. The ones at the front get a real pasting with the sun so after one went it was only a waiting game before the others went. It's just the big panes, for some reason the small ones haven't suffered the same but others have gone in other places. We decided to go with an ebony finish with added silver, the OH is not getting any younger and the idea is that the darker stain will last against the strong sun and he wont have to paint as regularly.
