Lots of Flowers

Today I have two more cards to share that we made at the 10-10-10 class. This first card shows the Die Cut Blooms found on page 169 of the catalog. These are one of those items that is easy to miss in the catalog! With the die cut blooms you receive 4 12x12" sheets of pre-cut flower pieces.

The flowers are all from the die cuts, and then the brads in the center are the Fire Circle Rhinestone brads. The leaves were created by using the 5-Petal Flower Punch. I used one punched image cut into pieces for all the leaves on this card.

By the way, I got the idea for this card from a swap I received at convention a while back. The only name on the back of the card was Jael.

Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Blooms Die Cuts (p. 169 of catalog), 5 Petal Flower Punch, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Circle Fire Rhinestone Brads, Big Shot, Top Note die, dimensionals

Note: Items marked in red are retiring.

And another fun flower card! This is an idea that came from Margret Moody. You can see her adorable card HERE. I know I'm not the only one that loved her idea as I've seen several versions of this card posted various places around the web. :-) This card is basically just a lot of circle punches and a few colored buttons. The leaves are actually the bird wing from the Extra Large Bird Punch.

Finished card size is 5 1/4" by 5 1/4".

Ink: Melon Mambo
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Accessories: Bermuda Bay Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Fresh Favorites I and II colored buttons, Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch (for leaves), 1", 1 3/8". and 1 3/4" Circle Punches

Note: Items marked in red are retiring.
