A Vase of Flowers

Good morning,

I am back home after spending a lovely weekend with my sister.  We had intended to get out but it was not nice weather, it was blowing a gale most of the time, so we stayed in and got crafty!  My sister doesn't really make many cards, but she has bought a few bits over the years.  We decided to try a few different ideas and she was very pleased with the results.  See her blog Patchwork Allsorts for the cards, you will also see some lovely sewing projects, that is her forte!

I am catching up with blogging again, these cards are the ones we did at the Diva Red workshop, sadly Moira was not well, so it was just me and all the lovely ladies.

This was our first card, we made the background by scoring lines diagonally across the card to make a diamond pattern.
On the debossed side, stamp the solid image from the bouquet set in archival, then drag a distress ink colour across the card.  You should colour the card, but leave the white debossed pattern.
The topper is made by stamping the urn on some lovely Clarity patterned paper, then cut out.  Stamp the line image from the bouquet set onto some spare card, colour and cut out.  arrange them on another piece of card.  Stamp the greeting and cut out
add some gems in the centre of the flowers.

Bouquet set
The Best Wishes is an old stamp, but there is a similar one in this Christmas set (if you cut out the rest of the greeting!)

The second card we did is mostly done with Tim Holtz dies.  I don't use many dies, but I love these ones.  I managed to sneak in the same Clarity greeting!

Thanks for visiting,
Janet xx
