Paint it pink

Thank goodness it's Friday!

And with that, I'd like to share a lovely little feature I contributed to Die-cutting Essentials issue 12, which focusses on using free paint swatches to make ombre-inspired cards!

I so enjoyed making these clean & simple cards, and have since made many more cards with different swatches and colourways. I'm becoming more adventurous with colour, the beauty of paint swatches is that the colour combinations to create an ombre-look are ready and free to take from local DIY shops!

This fab build-a-cake die is from My Mind's Eye and come with a banner die and a diamond ring - great for wedding, engagement and birthday cards!

This is my favourite, remember it's important to smile! :)

  1. That's a really neat trick - I may have to visit Homebase over the weekend!! Thanks for sharing - the smile is my favourite too. xx

    1. I went to B&Q, they even had pantone colours! Did you see Sharon's amazing wreath? You could achieve something like this with swatches... if you have the patience! x
