Ugh I hate these dark days … hate them! So, I decided to forget about winter, dark days and Xmas and had a play with some Foamiran to make a couple of flowers for my shabby card. I love how well the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Clearly Handmade From Me stamp set worked for this card.
I absolutley love this Foamiran, it’s a dream to work with and gives the most stunning and realistic effect too.
There are so many video tutorials on You Tube, I could spend days on there just watching and learning. I experimented with the colour shading and used soft pastels on white foam for the large flower. I also attacked the organza bow with the old heat gun again, this is another technique I love love love using for shabby cards.
I used my all time favourite Rosy Owl Trailing Leaves die again, Noor Design now have them and the foam and flowers dies in stock in their Foamiran section of their website. I used the Flower Dies 1 set to make these flowers.
The papers are from the Anna Marie Designs Blissful pads, I combined a couple of different colourways for this card. The doily is by Prima and the scallop circles and flourish die are by Spellbinders. I went a bit cray-cray with the pearls, but Hobbycraft are doing them for such a brilliant price it would be rude not to lol. The clock is a button and for the life of me I can’t remember where I got it from, I wish I could remember so I could get some more. This old brain is not firing on all cylinders any more, I tell ya!
