Fabulous Florets Blended

Hello Crafty Peeps!

I have another playing about card using new products to show you. 

This months card swap club had a stipulation of a cut out to the front.  I chose to make a fancy edge by cutting the Fabulous Florets flowers.

I stamped the flower in Crumb Cake then coloured them using  Stampin' Up!'s new Blendabilities - Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabanna and Rich Razzleberry.  I tried out 3 different ways to colour.  Cherry Cobbler was coloured completely light, then adding in medium and finally dark then again in light. Rich Razzleberry was coloured the opposite way.  Dark to light.  Coastal Cabanna was coloured using a flicking stroke first in dark then adding medium and finally light leaving some of the white. 

This shows the card closed.  I added the leaf pattern to the inside. The card base is Crumb Cake and the sentiment is stamped in the same and is from Perfect Pennants.  It was die cut using the Banners Framelits.  For added sparkle I've attached a Basic Rhinestone to each of the flowers. 

Only 6 days and counting until the new catalogue.  Can't wait!   Lots of new stamps to try out my new pens on.  Along with other goodies I'm sure you will love. 

I went for a long walk today (An hour and a half!) and was lucky enough to see some deer at the Den of Maidencraig, which is a local nature reserve just on the outskirts of Aberdeen. You really have to look hard as they are so well camouflaged. I only saw them because a man, also walking his dog, pointed them out.  Sadly he said that the whole area is ear marked for houses.  Where will the deer go? :( 

Take care until next time.  x

I hadn't realised SU had introduced blendable markers - that's a little worrying for my pocket! Love how you've created the edge for this - so clever!
