Love these flowers

Today has been one of those days when I intended much but achieved little!
I did finally manage a card for the Color Throwdown challenge, having 'misplaced' the die-cut flowers for quite some time... it's the story of my life... things just disappear!
I stamped the flowers onto vellum and embossed in white, then coloured from the back with alcohol markers,
The dry embossing is from Crafters Companion  and the sentiment from SSS and Tattered Lace. I mounted each flower onto another paper die-cut so that the navy from the mounting sheet didn't show through the flowers.

It's also for Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes

One thing we did succeed in doing was to book a cruise for next year... so that was exciting!


  1. Love these pretty flowers and your die cut sentiment is perfect! Thanks so much for playing along in our 'Anything Goes' challenge at ATSM!

  2. Love your folwers and the texture under it...Gorgeous!!

  3. Beautiful flowers. I love the vellum. Great texture, too. A cruise - how very exciting!

  4. I have those flowers on my desk to use so thanks for the inspiration. I love what you did with their centers.

  5. This is so pretty Chrisse, I love the bright flowers esp. :) Viv xx

  6. That dry emboosing has a lovely texture. I thought it was paste! I love these flowers on vellum. I have tried colouring on vellum but with no joy but your flowers are crisp and bright. You should enter this into the CAS challenge at Time Out and the AG at Uniko, prizes at both! Oh and thankd for joining ATSM x

  7. Love those bright colours and they really pop against the neutral background. Always happy to see you at ATSM!!

  8. So very pretty! Love the pink and orange flowers ... bright and fun! Am loving the die-cut sentiment too. xx
