Flowers and embossing

Here are a couple of cards i made using the same sentiment. They are 6 inch base cards with embossed edges. (Rose and Swiss dots) The first card has vine leaves which were hand drawn, coloured with promarkers then cut out, I then added 3 little white prima flowers with crystal centres. The second card just has a cluster of blue flowers from Wild orchid crafts. The leaves were cut using a woodware punch. TFL x

Pretty flower and leaves

I'm loving these simple cards, there just up my street as i really am not into anything fussy. This is a 6 inch card blank, and a bit of matting and laying using some lovely lilac card. The greeting is computer generated. I used a large lilac rose that i got in hobbycraft ages ago which i sprayed with glitter spray. It doesn't show up much, but now the spray had dried it looks like dew drops. I finished off with 3 leaves using the woodware leaf punch and not forgetting 3 little pearls for my usual bit of bling.

Double heart wedding

Made this for my gorgeous niece who is getting married next year, she is sooooo excited. It's an A/5 card blank, the centre has been embossed with a scroll embossing folder, although it's doesn't show up much on the photo. Used two hearts to represent the bride and groom. I added pearls to the bride and made a dickie bow from ribbon for the groom. The text is computer generated. I also made a lovely insert to make it special, just like my niece. TFL x

Blank & White vintage vogue

Made this 6 inch square card using the lovely Stampin up Vintage vogue set. Although i do like clean & simple cards, even for me i think this is a bit plain, what do you think?. Done a bit of Black & White matting and layering. The hardest part was cutting the flowers out, very fiddly. Not too sure about the leaves as i think they look a bit spindly. I'm gonna treat myself the the Martha Stewart Frond punch, I prefer the shape of that one. TFL x

Swiss dots

Gingham ribbon from my stash was wrapped around and tied in a knot, then stuck to front of card. I use Red pearls to emphasise the pretty boarder punch. Greeting from craftwork cards TFL x

Three pretty flowers

I made this card for my sisters birthday. I used a greeting peel off which i stuck directly onto a 6 inch card blank. Cut out some pretty pink flowers and silver leaves. Crystal embellishments were used for the centre of the flowers that i found in my stash and a few crystals on the edge of the card for the bit of bling. Another quick and simple card to make. TFL x

Lilac daisy

I made this card using the Happy Birthday embossing folder on lilac pearlescent card, then a strip across using Swiss dots. The large flower is a Sizzix daisy die. I put a dotty brad in the centre of the flower to co-ordinate. Another easy peasy card. Think it's about time i got a bit more adventurous, but i,m in my comfort zone with plain and simple. TFL x
