Floating Poppies...

Happy Friday,

Today I am winging my way to Fleetwood as I have a demo day there tiomnorrow with Sue Wilson's brand new release of dies.  If you would like to see the new range and what I can come upon with then pop over to Crafty Company in fleetwood between 10am and 4pm tomorrow.

Back to today and another sneak peak for Sunday and Mondays shows ( there will be a peak of the Paint show tomorrow as it really is something different for me).

This is another card made with the matching stamps and dies from Justrite.  The great thing I have tried to show here is how you can stamp the images in 2D then stamp, cut and shape the flowers using trendies to make a 3D card that sits flat for posting!

For the background Stamped some of the smaller sprigs form the lilies and butterflies clear stamp set using first and second generation stamping using a mix of distress inks.

This is another card I am planning to demo so there will be step by step on the shows.

  23. Some lovely stamps making a pretty card. A smaller bow might have been less dominant as it tends to overwhelm the stamps, but then you know my feeling on bows (LOL

  29. Good morning John,
    Oh this is a bonnie card John and looks so spring like with the different colours of green making up a leafy shaded area to sit under(the brain is away into imagination land) and watch the beautiful flower grow and blossom, the grass looking so green and lush and the sun high in the sky shining down to make a beautiful day, just need the picnic now. Thank you John for a beautiful card that lets our imagination go to where it is. Have a great day at Fleetwood(and if you have time they have a brilliant market) and the lovely people that are there,
    crafty hugs
