Wishing You Happiness





I was playing with petals from  the "Super Giant Begonia Petals" punch to see if I could come up with a different type of flower and this is what happened.  I like the way it turned out.  It is so fun to have the punches to be able to create so many different flowers with them.  The petals were punched using vanilla card stock and the edges sponged with brown ink.  They were shaped with the tools from the Flower Tool Kit on the black shaping mat.  The punches used for the stamen were both the large and medium "Sky Flake" punches.  They were punched using beige card stock and the circles on the tips of each flake were colored brown with a marker (front and back) then shaped with the shaping tools.  The card stock I used comes in packets from Joan's Gardens.

The Sizzix "Wreath" embossing folder was used.  This is a folder in the package with "Birds & Wreath" embossing folders.  The embossed oval frame with leaves was cut out with scissors so it could stand out from the design paper.  The sentiment is from another new JustRite stamp set "Elegant Frames".  I only wanted to use the sentiment,  but the frames in this set are gorgeous.  It was stamped using VersaFine Brown ink.  A few Sizzix branch w/leaves were die cut using vanilla card stock.  They blend in perfect with the embossed leaves on the oval.  The flower and leaves were arranged in the corner then a brown bow added.  To complete the card, two beautiful butterflies from the "Pinkpaislee Butterfly Garden Collection" were added along with a few pearls in the corners.

Have you tried making your own flowers with the supplies from Joan's Gardens

I have fallen in love with all your cards. Thank you so much for sharing them with us. I bought several Punch bunch punches a year or so ago but I haven't done much with them. But everytime I look at one of your cards I want to get them out. Matter of fact I think I will now. Thanks so much.

Hello Selma,

I just wanted to say what a stunning blog you have. Your cards are just beautiful works of art and you've given me so much inspiration as I have just started my collection of Punch Bunch punches and making flowers, also your tutorials are so easy to follow.
I don't have a blog as most of my time is taken by my daughter who is Special Needs and will be 40 this year. ...but when I do get the chance I love making cards.

I'm so pleased I stumbled across your blog and will look forward to see more of your stunning work.

Take care

Love Sheila xx
