Hello everyone! I am so excited to be Guest Designing today with Frilly and Funkie! My name is Asia (aka Joanna) and you might already know me from my blog Under a Creative Spell.
I'm Polish but I now live in the UK with my hubby and our furry baby Kropek in the beautiful county of Oxfordshire. I work full time as a property manager and my crafting hobby is a real blessing after a long day at work.
My crafting adventure took off after my wedding 6 years ago. Today I am a happy stamper and card maker, occasional scrapbooker, mixed media explorer and handmade home decor lover.
I was super excited about the theme of the current challenge. I love spring and I have recently rediscovered my love of die cutting (getting a new die cutting machine might have something to do with it lol).
My crafty offering today is a card with a soft colour palette, inspired by glorious blooms of my neighbours' magnolia tree. Dusky pinks, golden yellows and soft browns seem to have taken the centre stage. This is my early spring take on the challenge theme, before the fresh greens take over :).
In my card I used Spellbinders Grateful Lattice die and Sizzix Tim Holtz Picture Reel die. My Grateful Lattice die cut was used as a stencil for a texture crackle and I also added some individual lattice elements I had left over from another project. The lattice elements are covered with sparkly Mica Fragments and I have lots of mica powders sparkliness going on in the background, too.
If you'd like to find out more about my project, please feel free to hop over to my blog Under a Creative Spell, where I also have additional close-up photos.
Thank you so much Linda and the Team for inviting me to play along with this challenge! I feel truly honoured! x
I'm sure you'll all agree that Asia's project is stunning and has provided even more inspiration for the current challenge 'Spring Time Die Cuts'. Thank you so much for joining us for this challenge. If you would like to join us as Guest Designer too all you need to do is join in!
