Daisy on the lattice

I have been meaning to use my lattice big shot die and keep forgetting. So when I was trying to come up with a background for one of these eyelet border punch flowers, I thought about how some flowers grow up lattices and decided to see what it would look like. Not bad. I used the Sweet Pea and Good Neighbor dsp for the flower ( Jenn Sannes inspired). The leaves are part of a five petal flower punch. The words come from the Vintage Labels set I got free with Sale-a-bration.

Flower power

At Leadership, Shelli showed us some awesome flowers to make with fabric and paper.
This flower is made with the large flower punch (2) and one 1 1/4" and one 1 3/8" circles. Mist the punched pieces with water lightly and scrunch up. Smooth back out and ink the edges to give it a vintage look. Hold the pieces together with a brad. I covered the brad with a felt piece from the sweet pea felt pieces.

This flower is made using the Circle 2 die and the big shot. I cut two of each size circle. Then, using pearl floss, I stitched a big X in the centered and gathered it together, I sew all the layers at the back into a knot. Add another sweet pea felt piece in the center.

This flower is made with the big shot and the XL Flower Folds die. There is a link to a tutorial on Patty Bennett's blog. They are tons of fun to make!!

Birdhouse card

This card was inspired by the birdhouse that Cindy B. at stampspaperandink made. She used the new Sweet Pea paper which I have not ordered yet. So I made my birdhouse and card using the Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper. The flowers on the birdhouse are just some primas I had on hand. I am saving my sweet pea felt flowers for a different project. The flowers on the card are from Vintage Vogue. I made a little "belly band" to help keep the card closed.

Two-step Bird Punch

I am really loving this new punch. It's called the extra large two-step bird punch and you will find it in the new SU Occasions mini catalog available starting January 5th. It not only punches out the bird, but also a wing and leafy branch. This card is for an Anniversary themed swap. It could easily be a valentine or wedding card. The paper is from the Bride and Groom specialty paper and real red cardstock. I also used the top note die, white 5/8" satin ribbon and the small heart punch. The words are from Three Little Words.

Vintage Vogue for Regional

Today's card features Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage wheel, and the new punch XL two step bird punch (which also punches the leafy branch). All will be in the new Occasions mini that begins on January 5th. The colors are one of my favorite combos: Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. I punched the bird from Rich Razzleberry designer series paper. The ribbon is new too! The Occasions mini features 5/8" satin ribbon in nine different colors. It's really pretty and satiny.
