I was going through my picture folders and realized that I hadn't shared all the cards I had made while I was one the Splitcoast dirty dozen team. These were done last May so I am trying to remember what the theme was but I think it was flowers.
This first card I gave my sister last year for her birthday.
I made rolled flowers in all different sizes and colors and the dragonfly was stamped on cardstock and vellum for the leaves. Topping off with a sprinkling of gems.
This second card I made some quilled flowers using some very thin strips of papers I cut, then rolled up and shaped into different shapes to make up the flowers. The stems I ran through my crimper. It is a 5x7 card.
The very last one I will be sharing was some Faux glass flowers. I used clear packaging, added some alcohol inks to it, then stamped onto the sheet with stazon ink. Cut the flowers out with Tim Holtz die. Then heated with a heat gun to give them dimension, adding gems to the centers.
I have one more set to share some time but I have finished my Christmas cards for this month so I will probably share those next :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
and above all it is wonderful to receive such a beautiful card.
Many greetings to you. I wish you a happy sunday.
These are all fabulous Connie! Your creative techniques of creating each different type of flowers is so inspiring. Rolled, quilled and paper glass flowers... They're all beautiful!
It's a fun time to craft with all the pretty Spring colors!
Very much in love with your first card as so much my colours. Those glass flowers look sensational too. Hugs mrs A.
Your cards are beautiful! I love the flowers in the last picture too. Thanks for sharing.
How fun and pretty! It's amazing the things you can do with supplies in your craft room. The faux glass is especially interesting looking!
So pretty. Especially the quilled flowers.
This is so lovely and love the designs and stunning colours .xx
You are very good at making cards. They are all beautiful.
These are all beautiful and so creative, Connie! The 'glass' flowers are really pretty and so unusual. Hope you have a good week ahead - Happy Spring! x K
Beautiful florals in such an array of mediums! Love that Spring like Wreath! Your quilled flowers are fabulous and that last batch is so unique! What a Happy Spring Post! Fantastic!
Wow! These are all so lovely! Your rolled flowers are perfection! I really like seeing the quilled flowers... I have quilling strips and I keep telling myself that one of these days I will use them... (I hope anyway!)
Such beautiful cards! But I especially love the quilling flowers. I've always thought that is such a cool method...but it looks like it would be hard to do? You did a great job! ;)
Lovely! The perfect cards to celebrate the beginning of spring. You always amaze, dear Connie.
They are all beautiful, Connie xoxo
Look at you go! I love all of your creativity you displayed. Ingenous using packaging. Those flowers are stunning. I didn't know you knew how to quill. That's quite the talent Connie!
OMG! The rolled flowers are insanely fun. I've not seen that before. Back in the day I made tissue flowers. So long ago now though I recall the fun! Cheers, Ivy.
What gorgeous spring flowers! I haven't done quilling in forever, love the pretty floral stems you made with yours!
all of these flowers are so pretty. i love spring colors, they must be especially fun to work with!! i have never done quilling!!
Your quilled flowers are so gorgeous, I could not do that, and love the faux glass flowers are gorgeous..
Love the dimension on the first card. Great flowers. The quilling is perfect. It has been a bit since I have done quilling and I really want to give it a go again. The faux glass flowers is on my wish list to try. I have always love the look and really want to try it.
