Well, I did say I was going to try and get back into the habit of posting regularly so I thought I’d strike whilst the iron is hot! All of these cards are me playing ‘catch-up’ – I’ve been creating steadily but just not getting around to photographing and posting!
Well, yesterday’s card featured Beautiful Blooms II and I do have another great card to show you featuring that, but today I thought I’d feature something different. In fact this does use the Beautiful Blooms Dies so I suppose I haven’t strayed too far!
Without further ado here is today’s card:
Quite a colour combo huh?! I wanted to make something contrasty but that still worked well and I’m pretty pleased with the results!
It started out with the gorgeous Hawaiian Shores felt. I’d never used felt on a card until PTI came out with it and I think I can safely say I’m a convert now! I die cut the blooms using the Beautiful Blooms II #1 die, and they really do cut through felt like buttah! For the centres I added White, New Leaf and Raspberry Fizz buttons, and topped the largest ones with pink and green rhinestones, the green one being coloured with Copics. I adhered to the felt flowers using Pinflair of course!
I then stamped some New Leaf cardstock with Polka Dot Basics II using Hawaiian Shores ink. Love how that turned out! I cut out the leaves using the leaves dies from the Delightful Dahlias die set then overstamped the leaves using a mix of New Leaf and Ripe Avocado inks.
I then took a piece of Rustic White cardstock, rounded one corner and created the bottom by putting just part of the Ric Rac die over the edge. The edges were inked with VintageTouch Chamomile ink before adhering the leaves and flowers using more Pinflair.
The panel was then mounted onto a Raspberry Fizz card base using more Pinflair. I then stamped the sentiment from Say It With Style onto Rustic White cardstock using Raspberry Fizz ink, trimmed to size, inked the edges with Chamomile ink and then adhered in place with Pinflair. Voila!
I’d love to know what you think of this card so thank you if you’ve chosen to leave some love – your words always put a smile on my face! I’ll (hopefully!) be back tomorrow with another card, so see you then!
