I'd like to share with you what Sue Shaff did with one of my newest files. Rolled up flowers. I just love how she used the gingham paper. It gives the flowers such a unique look.....something I never ever would have thought of. Great job Sue!
I am soo thrilled with this file and I can't wait to get a chance to put them to use on a card or layout. They are super easy to make as the file cuts the petals on a long strip that you roll into a flower shape. Super dimension in minutes. Click the words below if you'd like to purchase. I used vanilla colored cardstock and distress inks for the flowers in the preview. I think they would look lovely with spritz with glimmer mist or the edges outlined in glitter.
Click here if you'd like to purchase Shirley's file and make some super fast cards yourself! She also has a few more kits to choose from if you don't care for this design. Kit 2, kit 3. What made my cards even easier is I used one of my favorite kits from Transparent Touches. I'm a sucker for the pink and brown color combo and the addition of orange is a geat accent. I had fun using the various rub ons, stickers, and colored chipboard pieces incuded in the kit. It left me time to experiment with charms, glitter, crackle paint, liquid glass and perfect pearls to enhance my cards. I'm not sure but there may be still some of this kit available for purchase.

These cards look much better in person as the photos just don't do them justice. So..I'd like to share with you one additonal photo of a technique I used.
I used a cuttlebug folder and then dabbed clear embossing all over the cardstock. Then I dusted copper perfect pearls powder over the whole piece. This almost looks like metal to me. I will definitely be using this technique again.
Okay time for lunch and I must clean big time before the party!
Have a fabulous weekend!
