Tall Flowers Stamps & Dies

Hi Everybody,

Did you manage to watch the new dies being shown on The Craft Store (Formerly Hochanda)  today and demoed by Pauline Hickey.  

One of my favourite parts to this new collection is the tall flowers and the matching stamps. 

There is so much that can be done with this set from backgrounds to cards for any occasion.

To show you the versatility I have several cards styles to show you and I hope you will like them. 

This one has a gold foiled background to it and the poppies grouped with other flowers from the set.

This one is a shaker style with an embossed panel and a display of flowers arranged around the window.
I rounded off the corners to this card and used Tonic Nuvo drops dotted around the sides

The banner is stamped from one of the stamps in the collection and added with foam pads 

There is no end of things to create with your imagination fired up, and lots of sentiments in the stamp sets to suit what it is you want to say.

This cute little Teddy Bear I have water coloured from a stamp that I have had for a long, long time.

And every so often he sees the light of day again. 

This time I have added a bouquet of the daisies to his hand and scattered other flowers from the collection around his feet

I think he is adorable and if you added an age and a Birthday Greeting he would be perfect for a child's special day.

I will be adding more cards  and videos to showcase this new collection  and Pauline and I will be on Facebook Live this coming Friday at 12.30

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
