One of my newest makes – for a little contest with the Scrapandme paper company (in Poland) – I haven’t been able to obtain the Purple Spring yet, so I had to use their Meadow Impressions – it’s still beautiful!
I’ve developed a new way (for me) of making rose buds, which results in a fat little bud and even works with Fomiron, as seen here. Not that I’m overly pleased with myself or anything, just wanted to share! I also created some dark purple Purselane- at least that is what I was going for! and mini Calla Lilies are tucked in there. I used Rajni Chowlas Crystal Clear sprinkles on one of the butterflies- fussy cut from the paper pack.
Once again, I forgot to post my recent make on WP, but I did manage to put it on FB! (Twice) I must be getting old!! This is a little chocolate box using Graphic 45’s Cottage Life collection.
I used Fomiron to make the flowers and leaves, with exception of the thistle, which were found at a local craft store. I added some glitter to the precut butterfly in the ephemera pack, and the sentiment is one of their stickers.
The inside appears to be a typical card…….
Until you lift the flap, and see the chocolate, and another smaller card, with a sweet message. I’m sorry I do not know the manufacturers of all my dies used for each flower, and the honeycomb – I just got them off Amazon.
And below a short video. Thank you so much for stopping by, please let me know how you like it!
Having fun making peonies lately . . . I needed an excuse to make a white Peony, so I rummaged around my Heartfelt Creations paper packs, and landed on the Floral Banners.
I used the lace from one of their dies, for the pink Lily I actually used the small daffodil die, without the trumpet center, the medium pink are peony “buds” using the small peony dies; the bright pink are the small petunia, and the light blue “blossom” are from the smallest cherry blossom die. So basically 99% HFC products, and a little bit of my time. Can you see the floral “banner” under the dimensional flowers? (Trying to be like the pros there, lol! without the fussy cutting!)
The little bird came from my stash, you’ve probably seen them at craft stores too, I just put some glossy accent on it to make it shine; and the sentiment is from a Tim Holtz package of chipboard sentiments.
For the middle of the card, I used more of the same HFC paper from the Floral Banners (same sheet of paper throughout, just using the front and the back, and I have a sentiment from a sticker pack you can’t really see in there.
Y’all don’t pay any attention to the fact that the bottom lace is facing the wrong way and should’ve been tucked under the pink paper, ok? It’s a work in progress, and I tried to kind of cover up my mistake with some flatback pearls. It is what it is (sigh)!
