Challenge#80: Flowers and more flowers
Remember there is a prize
I have tried to bling up my floral cards.
In a fruitless attempt to make a dent in my pattern paper I have used 2 pieces to create 2 cards. I blinged them up with sequins, gold foil paper and glittery die cuts.
Some pretty pattern paper from Inspired by Stamping along with gold foil die cut sentiment from Elizabeth craft designs and a few sequins. Today would have been my Gran’s birthday. I think she would have liked this card. She loved her flowers and butterflies (there is one in the top corner).
This one uses some vintage paper from MME Miss Caroline 6×6 paper pad. There is a sentiment on the paper “start everyday with a smile”. I added die cut flower and leaves (freeby with a magazine) and sequins. I added kindy glitz first but wasn’t overally happy with the result so glued sequins on top!
Hope you find some time to join the challenge I’m sure you have some flowers and bling in your stash!
Until next time
I am just in time to link up to this months challenge at Scrapbook Boutique here
I was inspired to make this card from the minute I saw the mood board – some 3 weeks ago!
I was writing something earlier today and had the “AH” moment when I realised it was the last day of the month! So after swimming tonight I put my inspiration into action – hence the poor picture quality – no outside pics at 9.30 at night.
Here is my card
The image from SU Made with love was stamped onto some IBS Vintage Floral paper and die cut with Baby’s First Framelits die. I added some pink lacey elastic left over from leggins I made Miss A (11) when she was a toddler! and added a little pink ribbon for the waist band and a ribbon bow.
The little dancers, particularly the little one in the middle of the mood board were my inspiration. This was layered onto the card front and finished with a sentiment from Flourishes Kids at Play.

I am using the sketch from Inspired by Stamping to create my card
Here is my card
I used Fawn coloured paper I picked up from a craft show and layered with Vintage floral designer paper from IBS. I stamped images from IBS Fancy circles in SU Pink Pirouette and Baked Brown Sugar and punched using 2″ and 2.25″ circle punches. I stamped a greeting from IBS Creative tags and punched into a tag using SU banner punch. I finished with some IBS pink ribbon.
I am also linking to the IBS monthly challenge and Pinterest challenge.

Yesterday I took Ms 9 to a craft fair in Geelong. Boy did she have a great day. The stall holders where so lovely to her. The only purchases where for her stash plus she scored a couple of little extras for the generous stall holders. I didn’t add to my stash at all. We have a Roxy long socks pattern which she had to have so hoping during the school holidays we will make this up – I have some fabric left from her quilt so the plan is to use this. Ms 9 has fallen in love with an embroidery machine so sweet I had to explain place value of decimals to her – she misunderstood $xxx as $x.xx! If only it was $x.xx.
We also made 4 poppies whilst we were there for the Geelong Wool Museum display.
