Hope you are having a great weekend. Maybe you had a chance to catch Joanna Sheen's Royal Horticultural Society Collection launch on Create & Craft today. I was glued to the set as some of my cards were on the show. It was such an honour to be asked by Joanna and her team to make some cards with her new collection of 'Hothouse & Garden Flowers' Stamps. My children had great fun spotting 'Mummy's' cards. As promised I shall be sharing the cards here and this is the first.
This is one made 'Orchids' one of the Hothouse flowers. I used my Cricut to cut the base of the card. It's actually a mini album cover which I scored so it could be easily opened. I stamped with the individual flower head randomly on the front with Versamark and embossed with candy pink moonglow embossing powder. I inked around the edge with a crimson Brilliance dewdrop ink pad. I added some large flower eyelets to the spine and knotted lots of lovely ribbon through them.
I stamped and embossed the image and used Copic Markers to colour it. I then cut the image out, curled it and glued it down with Pinflair glue gel. I repeated this process and this time decoupaged a leaf and some of the flower heads. I added some glitter to the centre of the flowers. I used the larger individual flower for the cluster at the top and used the leaves from the main image to finish it off.
I shall be sharing RHS cards throughout the week
Ciao for now!
