Petite Petals

I fell in love with this stamp and punch set from the Occasions catalogue... It took me SO long to get it, I almost didn't think I would!!! I made this card for my sister who was unwell, and because I was also unwell I couldn't go to see her or help out in anyway. So instead I made a card for her so she knew I was thinking about her!!

I made this card with a Baked Brown Sugar cardstock base, and matted the card with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock. I then used a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock and sponged Baked Brown Sugar ink and Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto the En Francais background stamp (retired). It took a few goes, and I was sort of happy with the result, but as you can see on the inside of the card, the stamping is muted, and that was achieved by stamping off the background stamp onto a piece of paper first. In hind sight I should have done this with the other piece too, maybe next time!!

I applied some Fast Fused, and looped the natural twine around in loops. On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped some flowers from the Flower Shop and the Petite Petals stamp set and punched them out- A tip with the flower shop set, if you line up the punch with the stamps once and mark the stamp set to match the bottom petal of the punch, they will punch out perfect every time, and you won't need to try and match them up each time!!!

I adhered these together with some mini glue dots, and stuck them randomly over the loops of twine to hide the adhesive. I finished it all off with a random mess of rhinestones, and a Get Well stamp from a retired hostess stampset Express Yourself. 

The inside I achieved the same way, I stamped off the background stamp and stamped on Whisper White. The flowers are stamped directly onto the card, and I used a punch out to mask off the flowers so they didn't overlap when I stamped them. I also added rhinestones to these. 

To assemble I used fast fuse. I highly recommend this product!! I use to use snail like it was on sale- the Fast Fuse I use less of than snail, and it has such a strong bond... Really really fantastic product!!!

  1. There are, of course, several different versions replica watches sale depending on case material, dial pattern and indices, but we have seen all four metals Рas the Rolex Day-Date 40 will exclusively be available in the aforementioned materials (no steel version) Рso you can get a good idea of what to expect in terms of replica watches sale looks. Rolex has debuted new dial options, where the patterns are created by laser etching a sunray finished dial, making for incredibly sharp and accurate lines Рof different widths, depending on the model Рrunning across the replica watches sale dials. The etching is subtle when it comes to depth; it is not like guilloch̩ that results in deeper, more three-dimensional replica watches sale grooves on the dials. That is not at all to say the new Rolex dials lack depth, what you get instead is the mixture of the silvery, soft glow swiss replica watches reflected by the fine sunray finishing, rendered more visually interesting by the laser etched lines which seem to stand out more or nearly completely disappear, depending on how the light replica watches falls on the dial.
