Blooming Blooming Blomming

Hi Dahlings 
Well as promised the Findings about the Flower Making Tool from Marion Smith .
Drum Roll ..............
It's Ab Fab gives you the perfect shape of the flower ,I put it through its paces 
1st Flower on a thick Linen card stock ,spritzed with water ,great 
2nd Flower done in vellum I didn't spritz this as I didn't think it needed it ,Great 
3rd Flower on 150 gsm for the Peony ,I did spritz this ,to hold the shape ,Great 
I am putting Heartfelt Fluer through at the moment and they look great .
So all in all a perfect little gadget ,I hope after you have looked at the flowers you will agree .
Thank you for popping by ,if you have any questions on this tool please ask .

Celebrate the Journey

Hi Dahlings
Well as promised The New Release from Heartfelt Creations ,Celebrate the Journey .
When this popped through my door a month ago i was all excited ,and when i saw the papers i thought ,what can i do with this they are so dark ,as you all no i love white on white ,silver and a bit of bling .
So i left it for a week and just kept looking at them ,i was going to pass it to the other Designers at Oyster Stamps .Then talking to my wonderful Friend Paul Church ,he gave me the kick up the back side i needed .
Run with it Martine .
So i did and i have to say i loved every card i done ,i had so much fun with this collection ,using inks ,Treasure gold and colouring in that Beautiful Dress.
I cannot wait for next month's now ,i do hope you like them as much as i enjoyed making them .
 The Handbag is made from the Suitcase Die ,Floral Dress Precut set
The suitcase die  ,Balloon and Bicycle Precut set ,all distressed and i have used  Treasure gold ,i had  this vision of a beaten up suitcase all tied up with string ,like in the war in the  1930 's .
The Balloon i have cut 3 out on each and Fanned them to give them dimension.  
 Roses are Cherry Lynn Medium Rose
 Celebrate the Journey 12x12 papers .Amour die
I hope you can join Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations on Create and Craft at 11o'clock Monday .
