Friday Freebie - Beautiful Bouquets

Hi Everybody,

Todays offering is from Simply Cards & Papercraft and it is a lovely stamp set that will give you some lovely flowers.

Colour them with your favourite medium for a beautiful display and add one of the sentiments from the stamp set to complete the look.

There is also a plastic template with the set that you can use to create Mason Jars to add your flowers too. 

This template will create a card that will stand alone or can be added to the front of an ordinary card base. But inside the pages of the magazine you are sure to find lots of ideas on what to do with the complete set.

So if you would like this then all you need to do is leave me  comment with your FULL NAME

From those comments one name will be chosen and announced in a blog post over the weekend so be sure to come back and see if it is you

I am happy to send this to you wherever you live but you will need to add your full name to enter.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

Spiral Rose Maker

 Hi Everybody,   

Todays cards is using the Card Making Magic Spiral Rose Die Set and for this I have used some flower paper that is not too thick 

The background has been embossed in the Perfect Rose folder and I have added a gold frame to the top.

The fame has been cut several times in white and layered together with the gold layer on the top. This creates a lovely enhancement for the flowers.

Any sentiment could be added to this design and you could use a butterfly from any die set that you have in your own collections.

The card size is  5x7 and this is my favourite size to make as I can get lots onto the front or inside of my card and not feel restricted by space.

Pretty Card

Hi Everybody,

Well today it is pouring down and it is such a change from the weekend. The only butterflies around today are on this card and this is one I made some time ago using the Varied Butterfly Border Die

I added it to an A2 sized card and used lots of layers to build up the design, and I cut some of the butterflies from the border strip to add extras to the card front.

The coloured strip is created with ink blending and the white butterflies are added to the top. 

It makes a pretty card for any occasion and you can alter the sentiment to suit your recipient.
