You will start thinking I love my flowers if you have held on to thinking it thus far. Yes I love flowers, the real ones as well as the ones I can make myself with paper. There are more kinds to come, right now I have a fetish about daisies and stamped flowers as well as you will notice below.
I was at my first make and take session ever since we were in California so that is dating as far as WOW 5 years ago. It was an impromptu thing as I got in and was offered to partake in a Make and Take for free. Wonderful memories came back to me reminding me on how special the classes I was taking in California with my lady friends from time to time and I dearly miss them so as well as the fun shopping moments we had on Wednesday's after our weekly luncheon. Waving at you now!
The Make and take was about Penny Black's recent flower stamp sets. It was fun taught by Charlene the Store owner (wonderful lady). It entertained me for a good 45 minutes and was able to get some sets with me to take home and play. So this card is my using one of the flowers on this set to make this card.
This card will be received shortly
This card has a special meaning and was sent to a very special friend
CS is from SU two pinks and whisper white. The Spellbinder used is rectangle inside the Timeless Rectangle S5-158. The leaves are from Sizzix Susan Thierney Cockburn die cut set of leaves, the larger pink flowers are from Penny Black's stamp set called ALLEGRO set of 6 flowers (ideal to use with watercolor techniques)
Ribbon from stash, Thinking of you Sentiment from extensive peel off stash, the lattice back is from Cheery Lynn Designs and the rest of the flowers and leaves on the card are from paper punches I have in my collection. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the first layer.
I want to point out the little lady bug on the right hand side leaf. Yes that one!
I made this with red Liquid Pearl. I put a tiny bit on wax paper to form a bubble. Waited for it to dry and with white Liquid Pearl I added the tiniest of bead of black to form its little head, left it to dry some more. After all was dry, I took a Micron extra fine pen and added the black dots and colored the white head black. Once dry I used my craft knife to remove it from wax paper to apply it gently to where it is sitting on the card now. Fun experience. Try it. I will get myself some black Liquid pearl as soon as I can get my hand on one. It's all in the details!
I hope you enjoyed this newest card of mine. Thanks for looking!
