Floral Cards - Stand with Ukraine


I normally don't post my world view on this blog, but I simply can't stand by and watch Ukraine be invaded.

I decided that all the net proceeds from sales in my little Etsy store be donated to Red Cross of Ukraine.

I made a couple of cards that are in colors of Ukrainian flag, but all other cards proceeds will also go to this cause.

 I hope my fellow card makers will join this effort and donate the proceeds from their cards sales...

Let's try to make this world a better place...

Take care and thanks for stopping by.

Elegant Victorian Wedding Card


I would like to share one of my latest makes:

I added red cardstock and pink and gold floral patterned cardstock for my base. 

Next up, I used several different dies from Spellbinders and Memory box to create this quite a dimensional design.

 I added some hand made roses. They were made using Spellbinders Rose Creation dies. Elegant bow is Lipstick Red Seam Binding Ribbon.

This shot shows the dimension added to the design by tucking in large die into narrower one below.

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:

Elegant Floral Card and a Flower-making Tutorial


I would like to share a card and a flower making tutorial.

I used Spellbinders 3D Embossing folder Decorative Applause to create the background and slightly brushed it with pink ink.

I added hand made flowers and bow to decorate the front. I created an easel card and added sentiment onto Spellbinders Opulent Ovals die cut.

Here is how I created the flowers:

 I used Cricut to cut these particular flowers. I used pink and Speckled Egg ink to ink centers and edges of the flowers.

I shaped the petals and created indent in the center of the flowers.

 I glued two flowers together, then I added some yellow floral stamens in the center of the flower.
