Foamiran Flowers & Pion Papers

Last year Pion Design came out with a very interesting collection called "The Witching Hour".  Of course I LOVED it but I know some of you don't celebrate Halloween so I wanted to share how you could use some of these most amazing papers for an everyday project.  I think that the black accents in this collection are also perfect for masculine cards so I love having them in my personal store.  😁😁

I decided to create an explosion box to get a chance to feature the papers and some handmade flowers.  This is a picture heavy post so I hope you enjoy!

I've used apple white Foamiran and inked them with a TH ink cube and some daubers.   OH MY is this ever messy when you twist them but sooooo worth it!  I made the bigger flowers using Whimsy's peony die and die cut the leaves from the leaf die that comes with that set. 

I've added a bow using some wax cord from Prima, which is available in the store in a great selection of various colors.  There are some black and cream colored stamens  in the centers but the bigger black ones are ball and rose shaped bases (see product list below) which aren't in stock right now but are coming.  In order to make them black, I actually dipped them right into a bottle of black distress ink and then let them dry.

Here is a flower I made using Whimsy's lily die, which also has some pieces in it for making a poinsettia.  What a great set to have in your stash!  I added some vintage cream stamens and covered the ends with gold Stickles.

BAM!!!  And here's the center of the box!!!  Ooooooooo so much to look at!

I used a couple of chipboard pieces from Wycinanka and a bronze butterfly and owl.  I even took a die cut from Joy's Circle Floral Hexagon die and cut it in 4 to fit over some of the corners.

I distressed the edges of a Scrapiniec butterfly, cut out a Pion butterfly and added a nib to the top as part of the main feature. 

Here are more Foamiran flowers but this time I used Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 1" and again added a mixture of stamens.  Under the flowers I added some metal leaves for a bit more gold.

Ok so my latest that took me HOURS to finish!  LOL!!  

Thank you for popping by and have a great week!

Best Wishes

Good Morning,

I'm back wish some more inspiration for you, I have used the Peony Avenue Papers again as I just love how versatile they are. 

I have cut out one of the ticket sentiments from the sheet & used it as my main element and built around it. The leaves have also been cut out of one of the sheets.

I have mounted this gorgeous pearl button onto a bronze open flower and added a little white gesso paint to give it a softer look.

I couldn't resist adding the sweet little bee, I do love these. The bronze bow finishes off the arrangement perfectly with a little added seam binding.

Thank you for stopping by and come back tomorrow for some more gorgeous inspiration from the team.

Have a lovely day

Wild Rose Hips

Hello dear friends!

My new Autumn inspiration for you today is  this bunch of Wild Rose Hips!

It was a huge challenge for me to create them but I couldn't resist this beauty passing through the Wild Rose bushes in my neighborhood in my daily walk.

The best foam to make them from me is Silk Suite because it's the most soft but elastic material I've ever seen on the market! Furthermore, it can be manipulated very easily by stretching, twisting and rolling. These features make Silk Suite the best suited to work with moulds. It doesn't take much effort to get the desired imprint.

 For this project I've used Silk Suite RED for the Rose Hips,

 ... and Silk Suite GREEN for the leaves.

Hope you like it! 
Thank you for coming again!

Pumpkin Tilda

Hello and good morning everyone, I hope you're doing fine and enjoy beautiful autumn. Not long to go until Halloween, so I thought I want to create a Halloween project to share with you. This template is perfect for that kind of card. You also can make it more easy with no image or flowers, just template and papers - you'll already get a fun card.

I thought Porch Tilda is perfect to sit on this cute pumpkin... I colored her with Distress Inks.

And some more close ups of my card...

Thank you so much for your visit. Have a happy day and bye for now.
Hugs, Karina

Capture the moment

 Hello everyone!
Today I am sharing another card with you. It still has a summer-ish touch - seems like I am just not ready for fall yet.

I used designer's papers in different shades of turquoise and blue from different brands here. I especially love those double sided papers, since the front and back most times go perfectly together. Like the Streetwear sheet by Maja Design on my card - it has the great stars pattern on one side and the lighter turquoise with a soft pattern on the other one. 

For the image I went with Tilda with Daisy Umbrella by Magnolia here. You might think summer at first look at her but I think she's also great to be used in fall. Like, daisies seem to be the first and last flowers in my meadow.

I've put all the embellishments to one side of my card. Besides different flowers I've also added some wax cord and those white Meadow Sprays. Love their bulky look.
And since I wanted something higher in the background I've die cut this rose from the Rose and Heart die set by Magnolia and put behind the spray.

Instead of a stamped image I went with this laser die cut chipboard saying. It was perfect in color and size.

Have a happy sunday everyone!
Hugs, Kathrin

Winter flowers

Hello everyone!

Today I have for winter and Christmas flowers made with Foamiran.
With the  winter coming I'm making  a lot of these flowers. When I have made many of the flowers I like to utilise them on Christmas cards and diffferent Christmas decorations. Do you like my flowers? I very much like them.

See You, Beata:)

For man

Welcome! Today's a card for men.
I created this manly style using PION DESIGN papers from 
Mister Tom's Treasures collection.

Steel add-ons are highlighting it as well.

I wish you a very nice Saturday.
