My latest Foamiran flowers

Hi guys, I've not had a lot of time this week but I couldn't resist having a play with some white Silk Foamiran and Emilias new flower die 002,

These are on wires as I've not decided what to do with them yet!!!, Lol

I've made three sizes using the same die set, just using different sized petals, each petal is edged with a little oil pastel,

Stamens are from 14 Craft Bar,

I used the smallest sized petal for the bud, which was made with a ball shape of tin foil first,
I may get around to a tutorial soon, if interested let me know,
Happy Crafting!!!

Easy Foamiran Bud Tutorial

Hi guys, I recently showed you how I made some Orchid style flowers out of 0.6 Foamiran, link in my Tutorials section on my blog, so I made another tutorial showing you how I made the buds too,
I used the Botanic Orchid die for my Orchid buds but they would be fab for other closed type buds too,

This is the first time I have spoken on my Video, really nervous as you will see!!!!!!!!!!!! maybe next time it will be back to the written word, anyway hopefully you can tell what I say and see clearly enough, it's all a learning curve!!! lol

Let me know what you think, but please be kind!!! He He,

As shown before (last tutorial) this is the finished display I made with a few different types of Foamiran flowers too,

Happy Creating!!

With love

Hi guys, I've made a card to show you today  for Swedish house Crafts using one of the adorable chipboards Suha has in her store, I love to use chip boards and there are lots of beautiful styles to choose from,

I began by using some of the lovely papers by Pion from the Patchwork Of Life set, do check these out the price is amazing!!! anyway I cut down a few of the different  paper patterns and distressed the edges, which as you know I love to do,

This is the said chipboard Heart, I kept mine as it came but you can paint them or glitter them or distress them too,
I added a couple of butterflies which I made out of vellum onto which I used a versa mark pad then some embossing powder over the top, when I'd heat set them I cut them out,
At the bottom of the Heart I used some of the adorable flowers Suha has in her store,

As you can see I also used two different sizes of the Gummiapan banner die for a little added interest I simply distressed the edges after first  die cutting them out, these cut a dream as do all the Gummiapan dies available in store,

Happy Crafting!!!
