Floral Frenzy

 No stopping this gal when she is on a roll!!
On all three cards I coloured the inside of the embossing folder with Distress Ink and embossed the white board so the colour was recessed, allowing the white embossing to 'pop'. 
I then cut a rectangle in white and used MS around the corner punch and with the oval nestability, removed the center out of this rectangle. This allows the embossing to show through.

The flowers were punched and shaped with an embossing tool then I painted them with the matching Distress ink, intensifying the colour in the center of each flower. I assembled the flower and popped a pearl into the center. 
I die cut the flourishes and attached to the outside corner of the frame and then mounted the flowers over it.

The sentiment is from a Justrite circular set and stamped in either black or sepia Versamark ink, and cut out with a circle punch. 

I am delighted with these cards and I hope the recipients will enjoy them as much as I did making them.

I must say, that credit is due to the wonderful bloggers who inspire each and everyone of us continuously with their beautiful creations. I just pick up the ideas and make them my own. Thanks gals!!

    I don't know what to tell you about subscribing to my blog. Lots of people have it in their google reader. If there's a problem with the coding, I am afraid you'll have to contact the maker of your reader or search for Atom troubles.

    Thanks for visiting!

  10. I was just trying to get ideas for a card I want to make for someone, and came across your card on pinterest. I just love it. Thanks for sharing I now know what I want to make. Very pretty!

  11. Could you please tell me the dies used in these cards? They are beautiful!

    1. Hi Donna. I used Nellie Snellen punch for the flowers and embossed them with the matching punch. The flourish was a die from Marianne dies - all from the Netherlands but available from Frantic Stamper I'm sure. Hugs
