Flower Poppet

Evening to all my crafty friends and followers

Well I suppose my post is better late than never.  The time fairy has taken away a few hours again today.  I have been busy I must admit and I have gotten 6 of the 10 cards I need to make today before I go away tomorrow for a few days.  Some me time and really looking forward to it too.  I am going to see a couple of friends and have a good catch up.  Anyway here is my card for you today.  I have used a combination of the Paintbox Poppet Christine Haworth stamps and the CD which I purchased from Crafter's Companion.  I do love this CD and the stamps are a dream to use too.



Recipe & Method

1.  Card base is 8 x 8 pearlescent.
2.  First layer is Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress collection which I have used my Spellbinder Donna Salazar die.  I then distressed back the top layer of the card to show the core.
3.  The second layer I have printed off from the above mentioned CD onto pearlescent paper and again using Spellbinder Donna Salazar die cut this out I have inked the edges first using Dew Drop VersaMagic Pumpkin Spice and add some cream and pale orange organza ribbon down the left hand side before layering it down.
4.  I stamped the image onto Neenah card and cut out using Spellbinder Fleur De Lis Rectange die.  I also stamped the circle from the Stamp sheet and added Happy Birthday.  I then cut this out using Spellbinder circle die.
5.  I have used Pumpkin spice to distress the greeting and around the edges of the rectangle.  I have coloured the imjages in using Derwent watercolour pencils.
6.  To finish off I have added some buttons from my stash which I have threaded with gold thread.


Thank you for stopping by today
