Frame it

Frame it is the title of this weeks Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp. De designers used Memory Box products. You can read about it here:
And here is my card, and I also used Memory Box products.

I used die cuts to cut out the Bramble Circle, the Butterfly and the Chloe stems from watercolor paper. Thereafter I colored it all with Distress Inks.

The background is made with leaves from a Hero Arts stampset. And the sentiment is also Hero Arts.

The stems are tied together with gold thread.

To add some interest I added gold foil on the Chloe stems, using a decofoil marker and my Mini Minc machine.

I am going to insert it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
Thank you for coming here again! So much appreciated!

Night and day flowers

Love the peaceful feel of sunday afternoon. Time for crafting! Today I finished some projects I started earlier. This card is one of them.
The "Night and Day flowers" is a stampset by Hero Arts. Stamped and heat embossed in gold and colored with Distress Inks. There is no sentiment on this card. Sometimes I prefer a card without a sentiment. This card goes to someone who just came home from hospital.
Thank you for visiting!

Golden Bouquet

Here I like to show you a golden bouquet. It was for my mothers birthday.  I am still working with the Hibiscus Bouquet stampset by Altenew. Love this stampset so much. I think because of the style of the flowers fits my heart. Especially in gold.
Made a background with swirls of Crafty Individuals stamped in gold. The flowers are stamped and heat embossed in gold on vellum. Then colored with Copic Markers at the back side. The sentiment is dutch for  Happy Birthday.
Thank you for visiting!

Malus Apple Tree

Last week our Malus Apple tree was flowering.
And I Love it sooo much! Love the delicate flowers and the gorgeous pink shades of the buds and Then on to white flowers!

This inspired me to make a card with similar flowers on it. Found the Clearly Besotted stampset with these flowers in it.
Isn't it sweet?! Colored the flowers with Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Tried to get the delicate look on it. The pink notecard is glossy pink on the outside and white on the inside. Very pretty, and great that it has a white inside to write on.
Thank you for visiting my garden!

Here in the Netherlands you see the Magnolia trees flowering all around. I really love the sight of it, it makes me happy. Spring is having a quick start now.
On a stampset by Altenew I found these flowers wich do think me of Magnolia flowers. This stampset has the name "Hibiscus Bouquet". Stamped the flowers with Versamark, heat embossed them and colored them with Distress Inks and added some color over it with colored pencils. Arranged them and that was it.
Thanks for your visit here!!!
