Mixed Blossoms

Hi everyone, hope your having a lovely weekend.

Ive had a great week with a brilliant workshop on Thursday where the hostess (Hi Anne!!) managed to earn £110 in free products plus three extra items at half price - WOW!!!  The promotion is on for both June and July, so if you want to get even more freebies, contact me now.

Today I am busy preparing for our team training event which is tomorrow afternoon, but wanted to share a card I made using the lovely Mixed Blossoms stamp set and matching punch.

The butterfly is just the flower image stamped in versamark onto vellum cardstock and heat embossed with white embossing powder and then punched out with the Blossom Punch.  To make it into a butterfly shape I just cut two of the petals away and mounted it with dimentionals on to a mat of Indigo Island cardstock - but slightly offset to give a border, again cutting away two petals from the mat.  The two petals from the Indigo Island mat are adhered to the top part of the butterfly to make the border all around the butterfly.

I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly body from the Butterfly Prints stamp set in Indigo Island ink onto Whisper White card.  The bottom of the Whisper White car was dry embossed with lines from the Simply Scored board at 1/8 inch intervals.  This was then mounted onto mats of Indigo Island & Whisper White cardstock and Pacific Point Bakers Twine wrapped around it before adding to the Indigo Island card blank.

The butterfly was attached with dimentionals and some Basic Rhinestones added to finish off.

The card we made in the workshop was similar but we just used the flower and one of the flower centre images.  They had a choice of colours, Indigo Island or Pool Party - I think Pool Party won though!.

 The sentiment is from Curly Cute and the centre of the flower has a Printed brad through the centre.

Want the chance to get EVEN MORE freebies, book you in home party NOW and we'll get craftin...

Enjoy the weekend!
