Flowers and beads oh my!



Happy Rainy Day!
A perfect day to post some flower cards.....with beads too!.....on such a rainy day. I was hoping to get in some blueberry picking today but couldn't make in time before the rain started pouring down.
I made these two cards for two different occasions. The first card was created for a challenge posted by my fabulous 2nd upline, Cindy Lawrence, well over a month ago. Well, when my "club girls" saw the card the wanted to do the same technique with the Boho Blossoms punch and micro beads (adhered to the flowers with Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive). I altered my design a little bit and came up with the second card above. A fun and fast card! Just stamp out the three flower stamp from One of a Kind in a couple different colors using the Boho Blossoms punch. Arrange flowers ontop of a cute little vase made from the large oval punch and viola!
Here are the recipes for both cards -
Card #1
Stamp sets : One of a Kind
Cardstock: Purely Pomegrante, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Purely Pomegrante, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Boho Blossoms and large oval punches, Green micro beads, Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive, linen thread, dimensionals and Bali Breeze DSP.
Card #2
All supplies are the same as Card #1 except the addition of the...paper piercer and white gel pen.
Fun, fun cards to make! Try it and see for yourself! :-)
Thanks for stoppin' by,
