Good morning, hope all is well where you are today, and you have all managed to have some crafty time this weekend. I had a lovely day yesterday, out for lunch with the family for mothers day and some very lovely cards, flowers and presents :o))
As I didn't blog yesterday (Jude did), what do you mean you didn't notice??? lol. I thought I would share my mothers day card with you today.
I started with a plain 8 inch round card blank, and ran it through one of the 8x8 embossing folders from Die'Sire. This one is Flower Power.
Then I used, Seedless Preserve, Shabby Shutters and Tattered Rose Distress Inks to lightly ink over some of the flowers. I ran a spare piece of card through the embossing folder too and cut some of the flowers out so that I could layer them.
Next I added a leaf swirl and two rolled flowers. The leaf die is a Die'sire and the rolled flowers are Marianne dies.
I finished the middles of the flowers with a couple of beads from my jewellery stash. Then all it needed was a stamped sentiment and a few flat backed pearls to finish it off.
I also made a matching pair of earrings.
This next one was just playing with some new beads from Beaders Companion. I love the bright orange and yellow colours. I used memory wire for a change for this one, so no clasps needed and I think it works really well. I did make matching earrings too, but only just realised I forgot to photograph them before I gave them to mum! lol. Who I am very pleased to say, loved them :o))
Anyway that's all from me today, thanks for stopping by.
See you soon
