Bloomin’ Lovely

Pin It

Wow it is hot!  I have just been to the Warehouse to buy a tiny desk so I could put my computer in my bedroom as it has an air-conditioner so I can actually do some work.  It’s not really big enough for crafting, but we’ll see.

Today's card was inspired by a wonderful Dunedin Demonstrator, Megan McDonald.  If you would like to try making these flowers, Megan has created a brilliant Tutorial.

I was really pleased with the way the flowers came out and although a bit fiddly, they are quite easy.  The dark flower is made from Rose Red Card Stock & the 2 pink ones are made using Very Vanilla CS that I have coloured with Regal Rose ink, sponges & sponge daubers. I have concentrated the colour in the centre of the lightest one & on the outside of the darkest one. They were all sprayed with water, as it definitely gives them a better appearance. I used the Crimper and 5-Petal Flower Punch to make the leaves.

The card itself is made from Very Vanilla & Always Artichoke CS.  The background is stamp with the script stamp from the Rustic Rooster Hostess Set.   I have also used Sincere Salutations, Frames with a Flourish, Very Vanilla Ribbon, Large Grommets & Rhinestone Brads.

You couldn’t post this card unless you made a box for it to go in, but it is lovely card to give someone for a special occasion.

Happy Stamping!
