I saw this card, yes, in Card Magazine! (Do you think I like that magazine?) This card looks very much like the one in the book done by Emily Branch (pg 49-January 2011). What I loved about this card was I learned something fun! The flower is made of circles folded into cones and then glued into a circle flower. This was a load of fun and I am going to make more!
This card was actually made using my (movers and shapers) horizonal card with the three circle punches. I die cut the card and it laid on my desk for a week because I had no clue what to do with it! Eventually I came up with this-I would love to tell you where everything came from but I forgot to write it down. Oh, well, no biggie!
Again with the Card magazine! I found a card very similar to this one, but it was done in various colors. I really liked the simple color combination of black and white with the pink of the little roses bringing the only color. I used the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder, Prima Roses, Rose ribbon, Prima Leaves (sprayed with dazzling diamonds glimmer mist), and the stamp set from papertrey ink.
I have an absolute abundance of Prima flowers and I love it...and them...which is why I have so many! I can't bear to use them, they are so beautiful...OK, not really! I do have alot, but I'm putting them on everything! Even the dog! (She's a girl dog so it's OK-she likes them too!)
I can't believe I have made this many cards in just a few days! I guess cold weather will do that to you! This is my tulip card. The die is sizzix and the stamp is by Stampabilities. It's an oldie but a goodie.
I was reading my Cards Magazine today and someone had made little 4 x 4 cards. Mine don't look like her's, but I still think they are pretty cute. I think these could easily be dropped into a gift bag without an envelope or a gift...just checkin' to see if you're really reading this... Primas were used on all the cards (I am Prima poor, but could always be poor in that department and be quite happy about it), the stamp sets are by papertrey ink and the white pearls are by imagenesce (the ones you use the hot setting tool with). Had loads of fun, so since it is still early I'm going to go and have some more...fun!
Here's what you need to know. I love to play. I love to play with paper, Prima's, glitter, fun flock, paint, glue, chalks, scissors, buttons, embossing powder, pen & ink, ribbon and stamps. I love to play.
