Handmade Foamiran Flowers

I’ve been totally sucked in to making my own flowers using Foamiran.  Tracy from Noor Design sent me some goodies to play with, and Tracy being so uber organised is going to be stocking not only the foam (she's only stocking the genuine Foamiran that comes in sheets of 30cm x 35cm or 60cm x 70cm) and dies but stamens and all the other accessories you need to make your own foam gems.  Tracy has the foam and dies ANNNNND that gorgeous Rosy Owl leaf die that I use all the time due in stock any day now so if you can’t find the stuff on the website HERE drop her an email and she’ll sort you out.

Oh my goodness!  I’ve gone Foamiran crazy lol.  These are my first attempt, and to be able to get results like this is truly awesome.  I watched lots of video tutorials on You Tube, but all are not in English so I had to follow along by pictures alone.  Then I joined a group on Facebook – Handmade Foam Flowers and found Emilia had a video tutorial class which I joined and I was away, as in that’s all I’ve done for a week is make flowers!

Apologies, this may get a bit picture heavy, but I’m so delighted with how this card turned out I can’t chose which pictures to use.

So, all the flowers on this card are handmade by lil’ old me.  The flowers were made from white foam, I coloured the petals with Versacolour mini ink pads so I could get the shading I wanted on the petals.

The chippie frame I picked up from Hobbycraft, the butterfly is from a sheet of Anita’s stickers from The Range (also at Hobbycraft).  The sentiment is stamped from the Whimsy Clearly Bold Banners stamp set using one of the pigment inks that I coloured the flowers with then die cut using the companion Bold Banners Dies.   The papers are Anna Marie Designs Blissful, I think this was the Cotton pad I used.

The leaves are just die cut from pale green Bazzill then moulded a bit on the back to give movement and shape.

I love how the little white flowers turned out.  So cute and soooo easy too.

I’m probably sickening you now so I’ll stop with the pictures.  I have another card made up that I need to photograph so will try and get that up on the weekend.  And I have some more candy to give away, again I need to get it photographed so keep yer eyes peeled Winking smile
