Jerri's Inspiration

If you love flowers and making them by hand Jerri's blog is the one to visit, she does such Beautiful work with her flowers and she is so sweet to share how she goes about creating these beauties.  She also does such amazing Pergamano work, just scrolling through her blog is such a joy for the eye.

I chose  this card for the inspiration for my wall hanging.  The two pink flowers on the bottom are trying one of her tutorials for the flowers.  I do not have the die that she uses so I picked my Blossom die to do these flowers.   The pink flowers on the top were done using the same die just the smaller ones in the set and used a stylist to shape the flowers.

I am not sure what kind of paper I used to make the flowers I found it while cleaning a little while back, it is a lighter weight then cardstock, but stiffer like vellum.  I inked them with distress inks and then added glimmer mist, when that dried I spritzed water to the back of the flowers and then formed them.

After taking the pics I am thinking of adding a little more greenery to the flower arrangements and maybe a butterfly.

Here is a close up of the flowers:

I found this hanger at the CK Convention and finally have something to hang on it, yep I am keeping this one :)

Spellbinders -- Grand Labels One, Blossom and Foliage dies
Prima -- Fairy Flora Collection papers
Glimmer mist-- Pearl (on flowers)
Lea'bilities -- Arch & Leaves die
Our Daily Bread designs -- Faith stamp (sentiment)
Memory Box -- Whimsical flourish die
White Flowers - $ store
Dried Baby Breaths -- Michaels
Queen & co.  -- Twinkle blooms and light pink rhinestones
Mini beads (flower centers)

The Arch has 3 different cuts the inner (the sentiment is stamped on) and outer brown I glued to the base, the middle layer has been popped up on foam tape.

Head over to Jerri's blog and soak up all the beauty she has there for you to enjoy, and get some wonderful inspiration to make a lovely project for your home.

Thanks so much for stopping by, thanks for sharing your thoughts,

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead,
