Fabulous Flowers




My Fabulous Flowers set arrived yesterday, so I had to make something. I love the new Le Jardin papers as well, so I paired these together. To add sparkle to the flower, I used my Stardust pen, and pearls for the flower center (both can be found at Ellen's store). The sentiment is from the new Level 1 Hostess set "So Many Sayings". This card measures 4½ x 4½ inches.

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, So Many Sayings
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Le Jardin DP

Ink: More Mustard, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Joy! Crafts Decorative Pearls, Word Window Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit, Stampin' Dimensionals & Sponges

Today I thought I would share with you all how I store my clear blocks. I had a few various brands before I bought some from CTMH. I really like these, because they are shaped just like wood blocks. For a while I stored all of my blocks in Stamp & Supply boxes. It got to be such a pain to search for the right blocks. Then I decided to purchase this case from CTMH. Though all of my block do not fit perfectly, I love having them all in such a convenient case.

Your card is awesome, the flower is beautiful. Thanks for the info on storing of the stamping blocks. I have mine sitting in a baggie in my stamping draw, your system is much better.

Very beautiful! I love the layers in the flower and the pearls. And those swirls in the bg are in just the right spot. Awesome.

OOOH I just love this! I think the flower looks like leather! Very cool! :D

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, that flower really IS fabulous! I love how you stamped it in Mustard. It looks so velvety. Gorgeous with the pearl center and the beautiful paper. Your blocks certainly look better than mine all jumbled around in a drawer under a mess of other stuff. Thanks for this idea!
