A Little Note...

I have been doing a lot of crafting while stuck at home and unable to participate in my normal activities... that's not always a bad thing as I enjoy spending time in my craft room. I hope you are finding time to be creative as well - or pursue whatever hobby interests you. 

This flower stamp is one I purchased not long ago - love the flowers and the fact that it is long enough to place across a standard card with just a little bit extra. I used that idea and created a card where the top section is cut away. The flowers cover the cut edge and rest over the top of the card.

I stamped everything using Intense Black ink and then coloured the flowers and leaves. I also inked a light blue background behind the flowers. That can be seen in the lower photos but it doesn't show well in the top photo. Parts of each flower were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush and I coloured some tiny sparkles to place in the centres of the flowers. 

Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise indicated:

Paper: White Daisy Cardtock
Stamps: Peony Cluster (Sweet and Sassy Stamps), Sentiment Collection (Penny Black) 
Inks: Intense Black, Blue Distress Inks (Ranger)
Accessories: Tri-Blend Markers, Clear Shimmer Brush, Bitty Sparkles, Sharpie Marker 



  1. This is a cool card style! The flowers are beautiful and I love your colouring!

  2. The style of this card is really cool. I love the flowers and especially the shimmer. ♥️

  3. Wow, your creaticity is off the chain. I cannot keep up, either, lol. This is one neat card. Plus, it's going into my samples folder because it looked familiar - I have that SNS stamp! xoxo
