 IC637 - the very talented featured Stamper, Catherine, better known around here as cdimick. I have admired her gorgeous creations for a very long time. I hope you check out her gallery and feel inspired.

I found this gorgeous CARD

I loved the combination of the striped paper and the flower Very elegant combination.

USEIT2019 - Flower stickers

I am trying to use up a very large pile of stuff on my table and when I find a way to use up something I make some multiples of the card. Today I am using up these 3 sticker flowers. Catherine's combination of the single flower and the striped paper drew me in for a closer look and I used striped paper and the single flower for my cards.

Stamped the hydrangea with black ink and heat embossed with clear. Water colored the image and cut the layers. Popped the hydrangea on dimensionals, finished off with the butterfly and ribbon.

As for a favorite embellishment I would have to say ribbons are my favorite and especially this color blue.

Sponged the edges of the paper layers. Popped the panels on dimensionals, shaped the flowers and sponged them with blue. Glued and added prills and stickles.

USEIT2019 - flowers

I am still working my way through the huge pile of stuff on my craft table and a couple months back I made some thank you cards for my SIL with a bunch of flowers. I loved the layout and it was a terrific way to use a ton of the flowers which I still have on my table. So I grabbed a pile and some coordinating paper and started shaping some more for these cards.

I left the sentiments off so that I could use them for any occasion. Finished the flowers with Nuvo Drops and splattered a few drops on the white card bases also.
