Hearts and Flowers...
Firstly I know a lot of my Blog Fa,milk have been asking when am I taking break well the answer is Today! I am flying off to sunny climbs for what I hope you will agree is is much needed holiday. I will be taking my sketch book with me and maybe a few stamps as I will be launching my Summer's Child stamp range on my return on Hochanda at the end of the month ( ODS starting the 30th May)
This does mean that I have scheduled my blog posts for the next 10 days however I hope you won't mind but I have simplified these to the Holiday set which means that I will post pictures of the cards along with an ingredients list. Normal service will resume on my return!
Back to Today's card and this is a demo that I didn't get to give on last weeks show as the products were selling out so fast I was struggling to keep up!
To make the background I cut the Ravello Striplet across the middle of the card then slotted the die back in at the centre point to make the background. I then cut the Sydney die in Lilac and mounted this on a die cut of white. I foam mounted this on top.
I cut each of the sweetheart flowers twice in lilac and white and did the same with the matching open petals and made top the flowers ( I used the fall out hearts on the corners and made one set, rotating the colours, stacked and one set I left as single flowers and used them around the centre to frame the detail. I added lace edged leaves and studded the whole card with stick on pearls.
The winner Of the Card Giveaway for Friday was Barbara Dear. I will send the card out as soon as I can!
