Happy Sunday and I do hope you are all enjoying the weekend. It is time for another challenge #41 at Creative Craft Cottage and I guess as it is spring in the northern hemisphere, it is a perfect time to have flowers as the theme for this challenge, and we all love flowers. You can use images or stamps with flowers, floral paper or paper flowers, ribbon or lace flowers....any flowers, just come and join in the fun.
We are so lucky to have 2 sponsors for our challenge.
Lacy Sunshine Stamps and The East Wind
The DT have made awesome cards using various images from these two sponsors, so please pop in and leave them some love.
For my first card I used Annie's tulips from Lacy Sunshine. You can find it HERE.
For a change I made a stepper card.
I used Kraft cardstock and matted paper from a KaiserCraft paper block.
The image is coloured with Distress inkpads and cut out with a scalloped square die.
The large flower and leaves are cut from a Marianne Design die and it is finished with ribbon and a large brad that has been embossed with copper EP. The small flowers are punched.
The sentiment is a Hero arts and stamped onto a Nellie Snellen label.
The flourish on the front is a Crealies die
Pearls and some ribbon to finish
I also made a card with an image from The East Wind called Aurora fuchsia and you can find it HERE.
The paper was from an old paper pad, and I don't have the name. A pity it isn't fucshias but the roses are lovely anyway.
The image is again coloured with Distress inkpads, using the new 'abandoned coral' such a gorgeous colour. I added pearls for the flower centres in her hair. and added glitter to the lantern.
The flower is a Marianne Design die.
Sentiment is Hereo Arts.
Pearls to finish.
