Kre8tors Blog Hop - Floral


 Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are stopping for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball, I am an independant Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Canada.  Welcome to 
Stampin' with the Bees.  

Today I am participating in the Kre8tor's Blog Hop 
This month's theme is Floral

So I pulled out Floral Essence and the retiring vellum that is part of the product suite,  I Love coloured vellum!!
So I heat embossed the flowers with white and fussy cut out the flowers.  I used both the Petal Pink Vellum and the So Saffron Vellum for the flowers and the Old Olive Vellum for the leaves. And I made lots of cards!!



For the first card I used a standard card base of 4.25" x 5.5" Whisper White.  The first layer is 4" x 5.25" of Petal Pink and I embossed it with the Subtle Embossing folder.  The top layer is 3.75" x 5" of Whisper White.  I stamped the floral image all over this piece with Petal Pink Ink.  I glued the layers down placing them slightly askew with multipurpose liquid glue.  I adhered the flowers and leaves with glue dots to minimize seeing any adhesive.  I used Champagne Rhinestones, silver thread and Clear faceted Gems (now retired) to embellish.


For the second card I used a standard card base of 4.25" x 5.5" Whisper White.  The first layer is 4" x 5.25" of Petal Pink and I embossed it with the Subtle Embossing folder.  .  The top layer is 3.75" x 5" of Whisper White.
I wanted to have a vintage look for this card so I stamped using Very Versailles.  First the words with Sahara Sand after stamping off.  Then used Artisan Textures and Petal Pink to add more colour.  I sponged Sahara Sand around the card and the edges.  I glued the layers down placing them slightly askew with multipurpose liquid glue.  I punched Whisper White sprigs then used Artisan Textures to add a little Pink speckle to them so they weren't stark white.  I adhered the flowers, sprigs and leaves with glue dots to minimize seeing any adhesive.  I used Champagne Rhinestones and Clear faceted Gems (now retired) to embellish.




I hope you enjoyed my cards as much as I enjoyed making it!!
