Crimped Flowers

This card is made using all Stampin' Up products.  I made the flowers by crimping the paper and then punching them out using the 5-Petal Flower punch.  The Crimping Tool is a new gadet for me and I have been crimping all my scrap bits of card and using my punches to see the effects I can create, and the possibilities are endless.  I really like the finished card, basic but effective.  Enjoy.

Ink - Soft Suede & Early Espresso, Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker

Time to Celebrate

My order from Stampin' Up arrived today, so I had to play with the new Everyday Enchantment DSP.  I really enjoyed making this card, I saw the flowers made with the Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die on Splitcoast Stampers and thought they looked really cute so naturally I had to make some.

I made the film strip and ticket tags.  The film strip is a strip of Whisper White and I have hand drawn the filmstrip on it and coloured it using the black Stampin' Write Journaller.  I punched the corners of the ticket tags out with the 2mm Handheld Punch, stamped the image on, doodled around the edges and sponged Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink over the top, I also sponged the film strip with the Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.   Hope you enjoy.

Vintage Blue

My post for today uses the lovely Beau Chateau DSP from Stampin' Up. I just had to have a go at making a flower using the Fancy Flower, 5 Petal Flower and Boho Blossoms punches.  I had two goes at it as I got a bit carried away with my water misting technique on the first attempt and drowned my flower (it all fell apart).  Anyway you know the old saying "If at first you do not succeed then try again", well it worked for me.  Hope you enjoy the finished card.
