Card Recipe:

1. Base: White SU
2. Coloured Card: Black Kaisercard
3. Design Papers: Don't know picked up in a sale bin for 10c a sheet.
4. Image: Mother's Day by DigiStamp Boutique
5. Colour Medium: Copics and Prismacolour Pencil Green

6. Tools: Cuttlebug, Classic Ovals Large, Floral Ovals ( my new toy) Glue dots, Pop dots, Tacky Glue, Liquid Pearls silver and Glossy Accents.

7. Paper Piecing: The Vase has been paper pieced with the Black Kaisercard and then coated with Glossy Accents for the glaze of the Vase.

8. Flowers: 8 of the flowers and buds were cut out twice, coloured and layered for that 3 D effect.


 I've used some of my new embellishments on this card it was the perfect opportunity.  Silver corners and fancy gems.  This girl loves glitter and these were just perfect.  I had made pink flowers for this card and thought I could use my new stash instead.  Hot pink ribbon from my stash. I think we all love a bit of bling.

Inside my card

Black cuttlebug corners and silver gems.

Take care everyone wishing you all a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Kathie, sorry it took me so long to comment on your card, but my husband has been in the hospital since Tuesday, and I didn't take my i-pad with me since I was more than STRESSED. Now, he is finally home and I have had a chance to see your gorgeous card. Love the popped flower and the beautiful vase. You put so much time into your cards they are such a masterpiece!

Sharon Basel said...

Kathie this card is stunning and so elegant. You have taken a relatively simple image and made it look so alive with the dimension, beautiful coloring and the crystal lacquer on the vase. I love black and white paper combinations and this is fabulous, especially with the hot pink accents. Love those corner adornments too. Just incredible my friend!

Hugs, Sharon :)
