My club card spoiler is coming tomorrow! LOVE IT!!!

not original…but so pretty

I had a Quarter Auction this evening and this was one of my prizes.  I cased a design I saw somewhere along the way…. thanks to the original artist.  I used tumbled tiles from Home Depot to make these coasters.  for the flowers:  its craft ink applied directly to the stamp with sponge daubers.  I baked them at 350 for 20 minutes and spray sealed them.  I wanted the flowers to be a little darker so I will need to experiment with the color choices of the flowers.  These make great gifts!

Inspired by Nature scrap page

This page is cased from the Art from the heart CD.  This CD was available to demos who went to convention in the Momento Mall.   I don’t know who the original designer is- but a big Thanks goes out to her!

I mentioned this scrap page in a previous post.  CLICK HERE to see how to make the flower with owning the Pretties kit.

Do you like Inspired by Nature?

A small break from The Big Shot….YES I do like this set.  But I am not using it on this card/post.

This card was inspired by the set.

Step 1 :  Punch a scallop circle.  crumple it up as best you can.

Step 2:  Un-crumple and fold in half, snip into the scallops to form petals

Step 3:  Punch 2 black 1 inch circles, trim the bottom edges to make it straight

Step 4 :  cover 1 circle with Mono Multi liquid glue and add Black Chunky Sprinkles glitter and let dry

Step 5:  Attach to flower, add stem

Step 6:  create card

You can do this exact same flower using the large flower from the pretties kit as well.  I have a really cute scrap page to share using that style flower…stay tuned.

Inspired by Nature

I just love this stamp set!  So easy to work with.  I used cameo coral and really rust for the flower using sponge daubers to apply the ink to the stamp.  I used celery for the grass and old olive, again with the dauber, for the stem and leaves.  All supplies are Stampin‘ Up!
