Blossom. Design team makes.

Hello everyone...Genny here. For this weeks makes I thought that I would have a play with one stamp, similar embellishments and just share how two different cards can be make. And then as a bonus, using the waste paper to make a backing for yet another card. The stamp that I have used is from Sheena Douglas and features the blossom on a branch. Now for a start you could make it whatever colour that you wanted but I chose to make it using pink shades. I stamped with memento ink and coloured with my copics. I cut out the stamped image into an oval and mounted it onto some gold mirri. I edged this with peeloffs. Both cards that I made are an 8x8 card, with a pink background card onto which I mounted some backing papers from my pink and one green with pink flowers. They both have the same flowers at the side as an embellishment.

On one of the cards I have decorated with pearl swirls and on the other I have used green foliage diecuts from my stash. Both cards are embellished with a strip of lace. But as you can see they are very different cards in their makeup. I often do this with stamped images..stamp out 2 of the same design and try to make 2 cards that are similar yet different. Then on the card below I have used the waste paper from the two to make a striped background for yet another card. I had a topper of Boofle

which I had decoupaged ready to use, but hadn't decided where to use. Then I created this background and decided that it would be a great background for him. I have yet to put the greeting on the card but I'm thinking it would make a great 'Oh no I forgot your birthday' card. No matter how organised we think we are we all forget the odd one and this would be a great standby card.
Well I hope you all have a fantastic week and have some great crafting days. So until next time take care and happy crafting.
