Fabulous Florets

Spring Flowers


Todays card is for The Paper Players Challenge #139 which is a Tic Tac Toe.

 What to choose??

I was going to go Yellow & Green, A Tag, & Mother’s Day but I didn’t have a suitable Mother’s Day sentiment to fit a tag/s. Of course I didn’t realise this until after I had made the card and just needed to add the tags…..lol.

So my other option which almost fit at this stage was Spring, Yellow & Green, & Pearls. Add a couple of Pearls to my existing card and I’m finished.

If I hadn’t already adhered my top layers to my base card I might have done some paper-piercing to the top left corner to fill in some of that ‘blank’ space.

Supplies: (All SU unless specified otherwise)
Stamp sets: Fabulous Florets
Card: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Pearls (Non-SU)

A very clean & simple card but I’m happy with it and leaving the sentiment off means it’s suitable for many occasions.

Fabulous Lucky Limeade Florets

Back with another Challenge Card, this time for The Play Date Cafe.

Here’s the challenge for this week PDCC146.

When I was making up my card I was thinking Black, White & Lucky Limeade but forgot it was ‘just a splash’ of Lime required so I’m hoping my card is still acceptable.

Here’s my creation.

See what I mean about it being a bit more than a ‘splash’…..lol

I didn’t use this set much when it was in the Summer Mini. Maybe it was the DSP that made me think of using those colours only but then again it was also a ‘not very creative’ time for me so it might just be that.

I’m happy with my end result so I guess that’s the main thing. There’s also another sneak peek in here. Can you guess what it is??

The main flower is in multiple layers which you can see better from this close up of the flower.

Here’s another angle showing part of the insert to finish off the card. I’ve stamped the main flower image in Lucky Limeade 3 times without reinking giving a soft variance of coloured flowers.

Stamp Sets: Fabulous Florets
Card: Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Whisper White, 2011-2013 In Colour Patterns Stack
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Petal Cone Die, Neutrals Brads (Basic Black), Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Mouse Pad, Paper-Piercing Tool.

I’d love to receive some comments and let me know what you think the ‘sneak peek’ item is.

I’ve also added this card to the 52 Card Pickup – Week 34 over at Old Back Porch.

Till next time…..


Birthday Florets

I needed a birthday card last week for my good friend Julie Price and I know she likes the Fabulous Florets stamp set so I decided to use that for her card.

I used the sketch from last weeks Mojo Monday.

Here’s the Sketch.

I chose to go square and here’s what I ended up with.

I’ve watercoloured the Flowers & Leaves using an Aqua Painter and inkpads onto Watercolour Paper.

Stamp sets: Fabulous Florets, Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess)
Card: Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Watercolour Paper, So Saffron DSP.
Ink: Stazon Black, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Till next time….
