Hearts And Flowers

Fashionable Stamping Challenges would love to see Hearts & Flowers this fortnight. Our fabulous teamie sister Claire picked the theme this fortnight.

I loved doing the flower part of the card but I am not a hearts person and I dread Valentine’s cards because everyone wants to see hearts.

What with telling you I am not keen on making Christmas cards, now saying about hearts, bet your wondering what else I don’t like. Might as well tell you that the only other thing you definitely won’t see on my cards is wings. No not the bird or insect kind but the angel type wings.

There you go my three pet hates for crafting – Christmas Cards/Hearts/Angels Wings – now I wonder what your pet hates are, I would love to know?

Really on a roll today I might as well share with you that I am very superstitious about the colour green. I do not buy any clothes that are predominately green or a solid green and there is nothing in my house that is green. Very weird eh???

Funny enough I actually like certain greens … especially sage green … and this brings me onto my easel card which I have made today. Crafting is the only time that I allow myself to indulge in green.

This easel card came about because I made a very pretty card for my class yesterday which I was going to use as my FSC DT piece. Scroll on down if you would like to see the card. Thank goodness I realised in time that I didn’t have a single heart on it. Back to the drawing board and voil√† my easel make.

This is the card which I taught the girls how to make yesterday and again it was mainly about making your own backgrounds onto a piece of DP.

We started off with two pages from an old book and on both we did a light wash of Victorian Velvet ink. One of the washed papers was torn and we added pieces to a lovely paper from Craftwork Cards. The second washed paper was stamped onto with various stamps and then cut out.
