Foamy Flowers...

Happy Thursday,

Todays card is one of the ones we did at the last Anstey workshop which focused on my Sandwich Box die and using the new Flower Foam from Leanne Creative to make flowers.  This was made in three different colour options so I have included all three.

As with workshop cards I dont put instructions on the blog But I was asked by a couple of ladies at the event to post pictures of the cards to help them replicate them!

On other news I will be doing three shows On Hochanda on Monday 12th of February  I will be focusing on some best sellers form previous shows along with a few new things, one especially for fans of my Starflower dies!.

I am also really busy making samples for a new launch later this month so keep your eyes peeled!



  1. Morning John, gorgeous cards and the flowers are to die for really love the pink one it looks like foamrian I love them.

    Great cards, love them all.

  3. Hello John, these three cards are really stunning, love the flowers in the openings, a really great design. Have a good day everyone. Bx

  4. Morning John, stunning, your crafters at the workshop must have been in seventh heaven making these, I wonder if there is a tutorial on the flowers anywhere, so did you use a heat gun or a hot iron to shape them I wonder!!

    Looking forward to the new launch, I wonder what you are brining us. xx

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
