Flower card set

Hi there,

I was meaning to post this last week, but I have returned to teaching (2 days a week) after having 13 months off…so I have been SUPER busy!

My Mum asked me to make a set of cards for her friend who is turning 50, so I made a set of this card I posted recently…I just had fun experimenting with different colours. I also bought a box to put them all in and covered it to match the set. (Originally the box had Disneyland princesses all over it!) I am really pleased with the finished product.

Sorry about all the photos, but I wanted to show you all the different colour combinations I came up with!

And finally the matching box…

Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts Stencil Flower cling stamp, Practicing Creativity – Just Dandy
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Distress inks – Broken China,  Tumbled Glass, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Old Paper, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw
Card: Regal Craft Card (white square single fold), X-press It blending card, white card
Other Supplies: Copic markers, uniball white gel pen, foam dimensionals, S.E.I buttons, Kitchen twine, glossy accents (to adhere the buttons), Fiskars cutting board and scoring stylus, box

Well there you have it. We are having a heat wave at the moment….it was 40 degrees here yesterday!!

Until next time,

Marion
