Oh boy flowers – I am in trouble – love a pretty flower to make things with.
My first creation I wan t to share is this pretty pink & black Cascade card.
I used the Mixed in Papers to decorate it & used one of the sentiments to feature on the front. I stamped, coloured & fussy cut the flowers to decorate the card. This card fold flat to 4¼” x 5½” and is simple enough to put together but has a nice wow factor.
My next card features the Thanks Thin Cut Die.
I started off with stamping my roses first onto a stitched rectangle thin cut die & colouring them in with markers. I then masked them – the hardest part were the tiny leaves.
I sponged & stenciled a background in Distress Oxide ink. Once I was happy I positioned the Thanks Thin Cut onto the the card & cut it out. I cut some extra from scrap card so the it was raised ever so slightly more than the background & added a matching colour cardstock to my coloured roses of the thinner letters on top. The piece was matted & added to a pre-scored card.
I seriously could create soo much more with this stamp set, in fact I have about 3 unfinished pieces sitting on my craft desk, but I will leave it with these two ideas.
