Dyed Handmade Flower and Ribbon

 Since today is such a rainy cool day, I thought I would brighten things up with this card.  I used Papertrey Ink new stamp set, stamped on avocado cardstock with white ink and then used the Cuttlebug to die cut the leaves.  The sentiment is stamped in brown ink and is astamp from Papertrey Ink.  I used spun sugar distress ink to color the ribbon and all of the flower petals.  The flower was cut out using Sizzix tattered flowers die with burlap, crinolinie, and net.  I used a fabric brad to hold the flower together.  Back to my creative room to make some cards for SparkleNSprinkle!

Vellum Daisy

My friend and I were playing around one day the other week and decided to try using vellum for some flowers. She had her set of daisies and the matching dies from Heartfelt Creations so I started stamping in white ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.  I used pink and light green vellum.  Sonnie did the labor part by using the Grand Calibur from Spellbinderspaperarts and die cutting all of the flowers and leaves.  We then shared what we had and later that n ight I made this cute card.  I colored the vellum flowers with a marker to get a deeper pink. The background is embossed using the Cuttlebug and the larger dot folder.  I'm not sure what company makes the sentiment -- have had it for ages!  I also used Tim Holtz Sizzix die for the flourish.  Enjoy.
