It’s all there in black and white

At the Let’s Get Stamping group at Craftbubble it was Karen’s turn to set the sketch and this weeks twist was to make your own flowers:

I just had to use one of my fab new stamps that plopped onto the mat moments before making this card.How lucky was that?

She’s from a limited edition Swiss Pixie stamp kit by C C Designs that I happened to come across at All That Scraps.I thought it was pretty good value at just under £40 for the set of 4 stamp sheets including the P&P.Unforunately the offer has since expired.I was also surprised that it took just over a week to get to me – I’ve waited a lot longer for orders to travel across a few counties!

I’ve coloured her with Promarkers and although it doesn’t show too well her wings and the butterfly have clear glitter pen applied over the top.I’ve used the ‘Out of the box’ technique with an Eastern Round Nellie’s Multi Frame Die.The whole die cut piece is raised on foam tape with an extra piece under her feet to push them further forward.The patterned paper is a freebie from Canon Creative Park.The black and white card are from my stash.I’ve used a Martha Stewart Threader Edger punch and grosgrain ribbon for the strip.Both bottom edges of the layers the die cut is mounted on have been punched with  Martha Stewart’s Hydrangeas Edger.Corners have had an inverted corner punch used on them.I used the flower plate from the Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet set to cut the flowers from felt.Pearls have been added to the centres and also to the corners of the card.The sentiment is a Dawn Bibby’s Design.
