Fleurs - Fleurs Flower Dies & Flower Forming Foam Collection Launch - DT samples

Following the launch of the Fleurs flower dies & Mulberry paper Collection launch on 6th August on Create & Craft TV.    I thought I'd share my DT samples with you. These dies can also be purchased directly from Tattered Lace at  www.Crafting.co.uk.  I had the following dies to work with using their flower forming foam.

Edge to Edge Dahlia Dies







An embroidery ring New Home plaque using flower forming foam from the crocus patch collection.  The edges of the petals have been inked to give the flowers a more natural feel to them.

  




Using the same Dahlia flower and leaf dies I have made an acetate front easel card. The flower forming foam is also from the crocus patch collection, using the palest colour in the pack which has then been inked again to give the flowers a different hue of colour.











A DL card using the same crocus patch flower forming foam colour collection but using one of the yellows from the marigold collection for the centre of the flower and Tattered Lace diamond trellis die



Edge to Edge Daisy Dies









An abundance of daisies were my thoughts behind this card, using the forget me not flower foam collection and one of the yellows from the marigold collection for the centre of the daisies. I have used the palest colour in the collection and inked it for a pinky hue.









A flower bauble made using the forget me not flower forming foam and glittered on the tips of the petals. These dies and foam are very versatile to use in many forms of craft.  Make your own baubles and sell them.






  5 x 5 daisy card made using the forget me not flower forming foam and with marigold centres. I have used card to coordinate perfectly with the flowers which I have made more compact.




I had an odd daisy left over so made a magnet out of it.

Edge to Edge Chrysanthemum Dies











  A book of flowers using the chrysanthemum dies and sunflower/marigold flower forming foam with the
 Tattered Lace nested book die.











A gatefold, diamond panel A5 card made using the chrysanthemum dies and crocus patch/herb garden flower forming foam.

ATCs Shine

For this months blog challenge over on Daisy Chains I decided on something different for the anything goes theme.  I have made a set of  ATCs (Artist Trade Cards).
For these ATCs I used the Shine Bright and The Ripple Effect Visible Image stamp set.




The inks used were Tim Holtz spiced marmalade, evergreen borough and scattered straw distress ink.
I used a few drops of glycerine, which helps the ink blend and glide across the watercolour card.




Love this combination of colours and as I am using the Shine Bright stamp set, I thought that they would be an ideal combination.





I heat embossed the smaller lightbulb and 'shine' stamp onto watercolour card using black embossing powder.




Using a blending brush with a few drops of blending solution and the Tim Holtz scattered straw distress ink I coloured the inside of the light bulb and around the 'shine' wording, then cut them out.



Being a lightbulb, I decided it needed a glow so coloured the bulb with a spectrum noir clear sparkle overlay pen.



Using one of the Visible Image The Ripple Effect stamps I heat embossed around the cards using gold superfine Wow embossing powder.



I backed the card onto some orange coordinating cardstock and stuck the lightbulb on with pinfair gel glue to add a little dimension.

Pop over to the Daisy Chains blog using the link and have a look at the inspiration the rest of the design team have been making this month.  Why not have a go too.

Following the launch of the Fleurs flower dies & Mulberry paper Collection launch on Create & Craft TV.    I thought I'd share my DT samples with you. These dies can also be purchased directly from www.Crafting.co.uk






An aperture card also using the Fleurs flower dies on mulberry paper and Tattered lace Moroccan trellis die.
I have used a glue gun for the flower centres and then quickly dipped them into My Craft Studio fine crystal glitter.










Fleurs Mulberry Launch - Fleurs Mulberry flower/leaf dies & mulberry paper and also using the Tattered Lace diamond trellis die. I have also added some foliage in this bouquet using the leaf dies onto the covered stemmed wires.










Fleurs flower dies on mulberry paper to make my "blazing star flowers", leaf dies for the stems and the Tattered Lace pearl dies.  Added hot glue to the end of the stem and then dipped in My Craft Studio fine crystal glitter as well as edging the flowers in glitter.





Fleurs flower dies on mulberry paper, Tattered Lace pearl circle die and a mix of mulberry paper hearts and Tattered Lace papers. Instead of making stemmed flowers I have just layered up the flowers to show the versatility of these little dies.







Fleurs flower dies on mulberry paper to make my alums for this card and also using the Tattered Lace rounded corner square dies and sentiment.












A window box aperture card with acetate front and Fleurs flower & leaf die using the mulberry paper. The flowers are actually on leafed stems which can't be seen very well from the picture.
