Same But Different

Hi There
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.




  1. Both very pretty and so different even though esentially the same. Hope Jim is continuing to do ok. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Both Cards Bernie are stunning so beautifully done x

  3. Very very pretty. Love the gorgeous lace flower in the first one especially.

  4. Bernie, you are obviously back in FULL swing. These cards are so lovely. I am a sucker for anything with lace (I have boxes of it - from quilting collecting days & I never think to use it!) What you did here is ingenious, and your lace flower is so delicate & perfect on this card. Both are just really pretty, and your recipient will love each of them. TFS

  5. Beautiful cards Bernie, I love blues, so this one is my favourite.
    I just love your gorgeous lace flower. Thank you so much for the crochet sites, I'm off for a looksie now.

  6. Gorgeous cards and it looks as if you didn't need any of those dies. Your flowers turned out beautifully.

  7. This is a gorgeous beauty with so many beautiful elements!

    If you saw my crafty space you would have totally felt better about yours. Now, you can not walk in there let along set down a coffee cup! This is what happens when you are a dog chasing your tail and for three months you steal crafty time when you can with no time to clean up! Who wants to clean up when there is stamping to be done???
