Wedding Card. Hand Made Roses and Flowers.

This card was made for a friend of mine who I have been teaching card making for many years now, maybe 6 years or more.
He was married on Saturday.
I am so Happy for Him and his new wife.



The Roses are made with Whisper White card stock.  (Not the Thick Card stock).
I have made white Quilled Roses and added little die cuts and made them into dimensional flowers.  Our leaf Punch always comes in handy for those little fill in areas and are just what I need to add to my Roses.


Have a lovely day for crafting.
Carolyn.

Winter Poinsettia Christmas. Using Stampin' Up! Blossom Punch.

Little Blast of snow or frost to cool our Hot Summer Christmas.  This White Poinsettia was made from The Blossom Builder Punch .  I also used the Pretty Pine Thinlit Dies for the Greenery in the display.  I used some fine strips of paper to make my quilled Wattle which is one of our beautiful Spring Blossoms.  I circled Punched some small gold circles and added for a little bit of Interest.   Used last years DSP The Black and White Christmas Music Sheets for Background.



The Base Card is our lovely Gold Trimmed Edged Cards and Envelope Set.


Close up of our beautiful Blossom Builder Punch Poinsettia with Granny Apple Green Ink used for Highlighting the vein lines.
Have a wonderful week Crafting.

Winter Woods Bundle Stampin' Up!


Yes Christmas time is only three months away again.  I really cant believe it time to get the Stamps and Paints out and start creating.



This Twisted Easel Card was made with a Variety of our Dies and Punches.
The Stamp sets used were Stampin' Up!" Lovely as a Tree" an all time favourite.
The new "Winter Woods" Bundle Stamps and Dies.  A very old stamp set of ours which could be about 7 years old and retired "Forest Friends" as well the the dies from Pretty Pine Thinlits. 
 Last of all a retired Builder Punch Poinsettia.  
Which has all the petals on the punch and you build your own blossoms.  This allows me to make the size of blossom I want for my flowers.




A close up of the Pine Leaves and Mistletoe  with berries. 
In the centre of the Poinsettia I added our Shimmer Embossing paste and then dropped tiny little yellow beads onto the centre. 
I used a Hole Punch to make the Glitter Red Berries.


Just a little winter beauty for our Northern Hemisphere as our Spring has just arrived.
Have a Happy week crafting.

love Carolyn

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Sunflower Stamp Set



The beautiful Sunflower Stamp Set such an amazing set for many occassions.  
"Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest 144783 Stamp Set is so versatile.
 A reminder of harvest time and also just a beautiful reminder of summer  With the sun shining brightly over us and the beauty it creates.
The Impressions Folder I used is "Pinewood Planks 143708".  I stamped my design on the cardstock before I put the design in the folder and through the big shot to add the texture.  Then stamped separately  one sunflower and two sets of leaves with dimensionals .  A few sequins to add a touch of glitter and of course glamour.





Happy Crafting almost ready for our New Holiday Catalogue.
