World Card Making Day

Hi all!

Hope you are having a great weekend, so much for our weather to be horriable I think it went right around us - lucky I guess except I was geared up for a yuck day and had a day in the scrap room planned.

Bronwyn came over and we played making flowers - this is SO addictive we found about 4 good tutorials and decided to have a play making them, this is the result

So this is the card I made with the other flowers:

A side view:

and not very exciting but the inside view (see I used my new Martha Stewart punch so now it was totally worth buying!)

I was talking to Nic Howard about glimmer misting the flowers , I have a few colours of glimmer mist now, but darn not one with just glimmer and not really any colours which is what i NEED, the flowers have all been made with white paper/card and using the distress inks that we use to colour the images we have sponged the flowers so now we will always have flowers to match the card or layout that we are creating but "we need something else" and I think that is a bit of glimmer so I will get the right colour in stock soon so we can all have a play with it. I did the red and pink one with glimmer mist and they look awesome - now I have a new love Glimmer mist!

I will try to find the links to the tutorials on the flowers and post that later as they are wonderful and very easy! Any flower punch will work with the technique really.
Michele Roo's is the talented lady that makes these flowers so if you don't want to have a go or don't have the right bits then follow this link to her blog where she will sell them to you, and yes I brought some and she shipped very fast to New Zealand, they are super cute colours and I hope to use the one's that I brought very soon.
I did make a six petal flower up on the klic n kut for the roses (and boy was I chuffed when I figured out how to do it, the Klic N Kut is something that really needs lots more of my attention as what can be done with it is AMAZING!)

Well I have rambled enough now, back off to my room to make more flowers, did I tell you that it is addictive apparently Bronwyn has 100 flowers and NO card make yet - aye Bo!
Oh and looking forward to seeing Beck's 5 cards that she was going to make for National card day.

Take care see you soon!

You look like you've had a lot of fun making them.

Hi Rachel

Those flowers are sooooo lovely - I think I need to make some. If only I knew how. Sigh!

Gorgeous flowers you two. Hope I can have a real life tutorial some time (dial up & tutorials don't go well) Lovely card too.
