Arianna Blooms

Hello everyone I hope you are doing well.

I have a card to show today in blues and purples and not for Christmas.    I love working with paper flowers using die cuts -  my collection of dies is growing.  My flower dies are mainly from Crealies and Heartfelt Creations.


The background is Dylusions inks, the stamping is Blueprint Distress Ink and then sprayed with Precious Metal Glimmermist. The flower were cut from a Gelli print from my stash and also white cardstock and then  coloured with Wilted Violet Distress Ink (love this new colour).  I used a stylus and mat to mold the flowers and attached small beads with Glossy Accents.

Stamp:  Chapel Road - Flower Words
Dies:  Heartfelt Creations:  Arianna Blooms (flowers) & Bella Rose (flourish)


Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Shirley

I adore these colours Shirley and the Wilted Violet is now on my wish list of distress inks. The background flower words stamping goes beautifully and the flowers and flourish with the added beads all sit so prettily in the centre of this gorgeous card. x

Beautifully vibrant colors, Shirley! The colors alone always draw me deeply into your backgrounds, and then the obvious focal points LOL - there is something about your artwork which touches my soul - I cannot achieve what you do - but I can easily immerse myself in your lovely, nature-filled fantasies! hugs, de

Thanks for the visit! I have 3 dogs; 2 shelties and a weim. The black dog is my friend's! My oldest, 10 pound sheltie doesn't enjoy going with all the dogs to the lake! They forget about her when they get exited! She sometimes gets stepped on! :( Love dogs; loved cats too, had them growing up but hope my life can always have 2 dogs! :) They give me confidence and the best entertainment ever! I'm pretty lucky!

Yes! that is our place; 15 minute walk in our woods! My Dad cleared the trees for our road the year before he died! I love our walks, trails and woods; but miss my Dad! However, our property is my happy place, it is a constant great reminder of happiness! My dogs are happy to be free as dogs should be; safe as I can make it for them....I have it very good! And yes love the pan pastels! :) Have a great day! need to get outside now and do work! Happy November and get that NS trip planning! :)

What a stunning card Shirley, I love this card and the collection that I've missed while we've been away. I especially love the Arianna blooms you've used for this card. It's taking me a while to catch up what with the washing, ironing and the dreaded decorating which seems never ending.
