Midnight Muse Floral

I know it's been awhile since I've posted on my blog, but I'm happy to say that today I've got a real card to share. I created this Calypso Coral flower 7 weeks ago, right before I broke my arm. It has been sitting on my desk, looking pretty until today, when I finally gave it home on this card. The Delicate Doilie was the perfect background for the flower.

I made the flower with three Blossom punch Calypso Coral flowers. I cut each of the Blossom petals into 2-3 sections lengthwise, stopping short of the flower's center, squirt the flowers with water, scrunched them, curled each petal, dried them, sponged the petals with Soft Suede and then staggered and glued the flower centers together. I created the center section of the flower with three of the largest Boho Blossom punch flowers, staggering and gluing the flowers centers together after distressing and sponging them. You can find the supply list below.
Have a wonderful day!

Digital Extreme Elements Thanks

Here's today's CAS "Thank You" card share, You'll notice that I used the same basic card layout as I did on last week's card. All I did was change out the digital stamp and center the sentiment. Since this was for my grandson, who also has been a big help these days. I used My Digital Studio stamps "Extreme Elements" along with "Thank You Kindly".
Have a great day!

Digital Sprinkled Thanks

Today's share is a CAS digital "Thank You" card I made for my granddaughter. I broke my arm a few weeks back and she has been so kind to come over and help me out. Since I'm not doing much any stamping these days, I went digital. I used MDS stamps "Thank You Kindly" and "Sprinkled Expressions".
Glad that you stopped by!
