Beautiful Flowers

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all well, and enjoying the nice weather we are having at the moment.

Today I am showing you a card which you will see on Create and Craft tomorrow (Friday 25th April) at 10 am, on the Dreamees one time only show.

We have some special deals for you all, so be sure to watch and get the Dreamees bargains , there is alot of new products for you to treat yourself too.

The card I am showing you has got alot of likes on Facebook so I thought I would share it on here for you all too.

This is an 8x8 card blank, I have used papers from the Forever Florals cd  also the flowers I have made using the cd , this cd enables you to make 3d flowers so is a great asset to your crafting. I have also used some of the Tattered Lace swirls to decorate the card. I have also used a sentiment from the cd, I think these colours really go well together.  All these products can be bought from

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Dreamees meets Tattered Lace POTD

Good evening ,

I hope you are all well.

We have had a very busy weekend as it was Hayleys birthday on Saturday she had a nice day although it was mostly working lol. We went out for a nice meal on Sunday too, which was very nice and I didn't have to cook then so even better.

Right getting on with my post today, it is a card which I have made for the Tattered Lace POTD on Ideal World launching at 9 pm on Tuesday 15th April, be sure to tune in these dies are lovely and so nice to work with. As alot of you know I just adore making flowers so this is right up my street.

I first of all used an 8 x 8 white card blank as I had the idea of using the Venetian  Fern as  like a wreath effect, which I cut out using papers from Dreamees cds , I then cut lots of the flowers out of the same papers and two circle and scallop spell binders dies for the sentiment to be stamped onto.
I then arranged the four ferns along each side of the card to make the square/circle shape wreath. I inked the flower edges with gathered twigs distress ink pad to give a bit of dimension, layered two large and two small flowers on top of each other to make a gorgeous daisy shape, I then added a pearl in the centre of each one and arranged these at equal spaces around the centre, then I stamped the Dreamees sentiment stamp in the centre of the plain circle die, attached this to the scallop one which again I added some gathered twigs distress ink to.

All in all I think this card would make anyone smile just like the sentiment says.

Thank you so much for looking and I would appreciate it if you could leave a comment.
