Shabby Happy Wishes

I’m still in my happy shabby zone …. I love love love this style of card making, it suits my more is more to a T lol.  I made some more Foamiran flowers using the Peony Flower Die set from Whimsy Stamps, and decided to use die cuts for the sentiment for a change.  I used “happy” from the Word Die Set – Smiles, Happy and Celebrate and “wishes” from the Word Die Set – Birthday, Wishes and Magical.   I also used the In Stitches stamp set around the top layer, which I heat embossed with White super fine embossing powder.

I’m doing a Guest Design spot for Love to Craft and Create.  They have the 0.6mm foamiran in which is sublime to work with.  It’s a lot more delicate and takes less manipulation.  I used the 0.6mm white Foamiran which I then coloured with oil pastels to get the soft peach colour.  The dark peach flowers are made from 0.8mm dark coral foamiran, which I die cut using a Rosy Owl die set.  I used these stamens for the centres of the small flowers – white stamens, mint stamens, glass stamens, pearl stamens (large flower). The papers are from two Lemoncraft packs – Heart Painted (peach) and Just Love Me (Ivory).


I stamped a background stamp onto the leaves (also from the Peony set) after die cutting to add a bit of texture to the leaves.


I gave the seam binding a good old crinkle!


And finished off the inside as always
