Make a flower

The challenge at "Less is More" this week is to make a handmade flower.
There are so many ways of making flowers, it will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with!
This daisy is made with embossing powder, melted in an aluminium dish  and formed in a silicone mould. Details of how and what are on the "Less is More" blog. They are quite fun to make. 
Here are some simple flowers made with a Woodware punch. It punches 5 different sized flowers in one go and these are simply shaped, layered and embellished with a pearl to make the flower centres.
The embossing folder is from Craft Concepts, the flourishes from Dienamics and the sentiment panel from a Stampin' Up Framelit. The sentiment is computer generated.
This weekend we have our 2 kids plus my daughter-in-law's Mum and sister coming for a family barbie. Should be fun!
I'm still trying to get the house straight following the decorator's visit!


  1. Both stunning cards! I've just got a couple of new moulds so I might have a go with them later but it's too hot today!
    Hope you have a great birthday on Friday.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful cards Chrissie, especially the second one. I love white with a touch of colour.

    Love Sheila x

  3. Wonderful cards Chrissie, love how you made the flower with embossing powder, very creative

  4. Two beautiful cards Chrissie. I think my favourite is the second one. Probably because I love white with just a touch of colour.

  11. Hello Chrissie

    First of all I have tried to email you through your 'Envelope Link' on your blog but it is not working. So this is the only way I can let you know how grateful I have been for the instructions you have set up on 'Less Is More' on how to link things to your blog and mine.

    I am relatively new to blogging and had no idea how to do it. I am hoping to enter challenges at some stage so thank you for going to the trouble to do that for people.:)

    Having visited your blog to thank you I want to say I love your cards the first is very elegant and classy in particular.

    Please feel free to pop over and see what I am doing you would be most welcome. Kind regards.

  12. Gorgeous cards Chrissie, love the designs of them both, the card made of embossing powder is brilliant.

    Warm hugs

  13. Very very nice cards, Chrissie! The gold embossing on the first card looks very elegant and at the second card I am absolutely thrilled with the fineness of the individual details. I especially like the embossed background with pearls, and the wonderful red flowers that look great on the white paper!
    Sorry for my poor English :(
