Rudbeckia, CREATE and CRAFT and more...
Hi again, is it raining where you are too? It feels like winter here today and we had to have the heating on last night :(
I want to share a couple of cards and a tag with you today which will hopefully brighten things up!
The punch used on the first card is the beautiful Tonic Studios Butterfly Border punch, the second card uses the Daisy Border 2 punch and the tag uses the Floral Border 2 punch.
I have some cards in Cardmaking and Papercraft mag issue 108 September (0n pages 78 and 79) and also some in Crafts Beautiful mag issue 244 September (on pages 38 and 39) which are both now available from stationery shops now, if you fancy a peek.
You can see the cards I made with the Chrysanthemum stamps HERE.
NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
Most of you will know my good friend, Brenda (Floral Fantasies). Well, she makes the most amazing cards - mostly using floral stamps. She has a very unique style involving lots of ink and brayering which I really love but have never mastered. Knowing how eager she was to make cards with my new stamp collection, I couldn't wait to see the results. Here they are! The four gorgeous cards below are all made by Brenda. There will be more but I'm saving those for later. These ones show the two new releases...Rudbeckia and Chrysanthemums in Brenda's own style.
I love the way Brenda has used one of the Rudbeckia stamps as a background (along with the Rose leaf on the left side) and has decoupaged the Rudbeckia stamp in the foreground.
