Playing With Posy's


Well now, guess it's time to show what I made with more of the goodies from last weekends show. I could not resist the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch stamps and diecuts! I was really torn on which to buy, but the Posy sets won. I created these flowers in two layers, gently curling the petals upward on the top layer. I colored with Copics, added Diamond Stickles, and Glossy Accents to the centers. My DP is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection. I found a pretty swirl in my scrap bin, and after cutting it out, realized it made the perfect foundation for my flowers. I took a sheet of A-2, Dusty Durango card stock, and ran it through the Cuttlebug with my new embossing folder from Crafts-Too. It is rows of greetings that can be cut apart. That was a great way to alter card stock! I added a bit of sponging to make it pop. Two little pearl studs and it was complete.

I will be entering this in:



Hope that hump day finds you well and in the creative mood!
