Beautiful Roses

Welcome to my blog!  I've been writing about cards with flowers on them, and how my summer has been full of flowers of all types, along with butterflies.  Here's another two that I love.  I hope you love them too!

The first card turned out so much better than I planned.  Do you play with different die cuts to see how they layer and look with each other?  I used a suede colored base cardstock, cut with Spellbinders Labels 25.  I traced the inside edge of the largest die of this set on the back of the floral patterned paper from The Paper Studios Country Road pad, and cut out with scissors.  I used the second smaller die from the same labels set to cut a rose colored piece, which I ran through my Cuttlebug to emboss the piece. The white edge piece was cut using Heartfelt Creations Regal Borders and Pockets.  I glued white feathers, a large wild rose from Prima Flowers and some little roses from my stash for the main focal.  So grateful (from SU's Cute Converse set) was stamped on a tiny tag, with beige cord tied through the hole and positioned beneath the large rose.  A little butterfly cut from a cupcake holder was glued on last.  Inside says, "I can't thank you enough".

The above card was made using some papers from in my stash which you've probably seen before.  I used another fancy die cut, and of course, my favorite butterfly. The white butterfly top was glittered up with clear Wink of Stella, which you can't see in this photo.  The papers don't reflect the lavender very well with the rose, but it really does coordinated!

Thank you so much, and I appreciate your comments!  Have a great day!

More Flowers!

Hi, friends!  It's a very warm day, but drizzly and muggy.  A good day for blogging and reading.  I promised more flowers, so here they are...

This first one has a wonderful sentiment of Faith, from ODBD stamps.  I used an edging die from Heartfelt Creations for the center diagonal cutout.  The floral punched out area across the bottom and up the left side was done using a Martha Stewart anywhere punch called Stained Glass.  It's positioned on the paper anywhere you want, with magnets holding it in place.  Very cool and nice to use!  The flowers were cut using dies from Heartfelt Creations, and prills were glued in the middle of each.

This second card was punched with another of Martha's anywhere punches called Crochet Flower.  I used all the petal remnants from the punched out areas to make the center 3-D flower, which matched perfectly with the printed flower on the tag.  Each petal was glittered and applied by hand until completed.  With just a little lace at the bottom and layered on printed cardstock in colors to match, them mounted on white card finished it off.  The longest part of this easy card was making the flower.
Third comes a pretty card made on a white cardstock base, with patterned paper from The Paper Studio called Country Road.  Fabulous!  The May God Bless You sentiment is from a set from Verve Stamps called Wonderfully Made.  The pink rose was cut from Heartfelt Creations dies from Rose Creations set, and the little white rose was from my stash.  Prills were glued in the rose center.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you will "follow" my blog.  I hope you will be blessed today!

Be{YOU}tiful Butterflies!

I don't know about you, but I love butterflies!  All varieties of them!  I have been spending a lot of time making them, since I fell down the stairs in the garage, broke my right ankle, and sprained the left one.  I'm nearly back to normal, but the last two months have produced a whole garden full of butterflies and flowers here in my craft room!

These two cards were relaxing to make.  It was fun coloring the butterfly stamp from ODBD.  The base of the two-layer butterfly was die cut using patterned paper with the white overlay.  A very easy card to make. 

The second card was just as easy as the first one, but in blues and pastels that matched the printed background paper.  I tore the stamped image out and sponged the edges with a little light blue.  The white butterfly overlay has clear nail polish on it with silver sparkles. 

Thank you for stopping in!  Have a wonderful butterfly day!

Flowers Too!

Hi, there!  I'm so glad you're here!  This card was fun to make, especially coloring the peacock.  The stamp is from Chocolate Baroque, and was colored with yellow, celery green, purple, lavender and blue.  The background patterned paper is in the same colors.  I wanted to glam it up a little, so added some rhinestones in silver and purple to the tail feathers, and a tiny one for the birds eye.  All was layered onto a dark purple cardstock, then mounted onto white cardstock.

This next card was made with patterned paper for the background, and the flowers.  I stamped the flower image onto burgundy with white dots, and applied some shine to the stamens.  The flowers and sentiment are from SU.  I try to add a butterfly to each project, and there's no missing this one!

Lots more flower cards to come!  Have a great day!

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

Hello!  What is summer without lots of flowers?  I have been in a flower frenzy!  It seems certain things go in spurts, but this spurt seems to be lasting all summer... I hope you're having a wonderful summer, and autumn is next month, already!

It seems Blogger has changed the format for blogging, and I haven't figured it all out yet.  The next several posts are all flower related, and I apologize for having so many "single" cards - I meant to put them in one post.  Please check each one out!

This one is an Indian floral card, using yellow, purple, lavender, celery green and blue patterned paper.  The floral image is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, and was heat embossed in white on dark purple cardstock.  It looks more like blue in this photo, but it is dark purple.
