Turquoise 8 Petal Flower

Hi All,

Todays card has been made using the small and medium 8 petal flower stamps.

 
I've edged the scalloped card with jewels to start. I then built up the flowers from some pretty patterned papers. I then added some leaves (which we will have in stock soon) and some rhinestone swirls. The delish papers in the background are My Minds Eye.
 
Bye for now,
Chloe

Poppy and Poppy Border

Hi Crafters,

A little bit later than usual this mornings post - but better late than never!! I hope you've all had a lovely crafty weekend - I have playing (I mean working!!) with some lovely new stamp designs which will be launching on 25th February on my next Create and Craft Show.

Anyway onto todays card,
 
I have stamped both the Poppy and Poppy Border stamp in Momento black ink and coloured using various shades of Spectrum Noir pens to colour. The background was done using a Splodgeaway Mask and some Sparkle Medium - the photo really doesn't do it justice it is so much more sparkly in real life!!
 
 To finish I added a little bit of dark grey glitter to the centres of the poppies.
 
Bye for now,
Chloe

Spellbinders and Sunflowers

Hi Crafters,

Todays card is a pretty clean and simple one! I have used just white and gold card stock to make this card.

 
I started with a pearlised gold card base, I then matted a square of white cardstock on - the top and bottom edges have been pierced using a Tim Holtz ruler. I then cut a Spellbinders Botanical Expandability die from white card and matted this onto another piece of gold.

The Sunflowers have been stamped and embossed in WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle onto the gold cardstock, I have glittered them using various shades of yellow and orange glitters. I then stamped and embossed the sunflowers again and just cut the centres out I glittered these in brown and black glitter.

To finish I've added a sentiment and some rhinestone swirls.

Bye for now,
Chloe
