This was supposed to be have been a scheduled post. Aparently one needs to tell Mr. Blogger when it is you want it posted. I've made some headway in cleaning the Closet, still a ways to go before I can call it done.
I began both cards by stamping with an old rose background stamp #H87 by Great Impressions. Lots of turns of the Cuttlebug using SB Labels Four, Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals, Foliage and Floral Flourishes. Also used a MS punch and some lace on both.
For the first I made a flower from a bit of cream lace and a bead for the center. I’ve aged it a bit with a little Tea Dye DI. I don’t own any of those lovely rolled flower dies. Instead I punched 1” circles, cut into a swirls, distressed the edges, rolled and glued each to shape then added a bead to the centers.
I really enjoy making flowers but it is time consuming so for this second card I used silk flowers instead.
See You soon.
