The one in the video

Here’s a closer look at the card that featured in my Frilly Foamiran Flowers video I posted at the weekend. 

Bev-Rochester-Whimsy-Peony-Die-&-Vintage-Sentiments 

I used my Peony Flower Die set to make the frilly flower, Craft Passion Flowers Set 03 for the sweet little pink and pale pink flowers, Rosy Owl flower dies for the little white blossoms and buds, Sizzix Thinlits 661012 for the white leaves, Poppystamps Monterey Vine for the stitched green leaves, Prima doily die, Memory Box Butterflies and also the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die for the large daisy.  I made the centre of the daisy by gluing fine Flowersoft to a small button.

The sentiment is from the Vintage Sentiments digi set from Whimsy Stamps.

I used the 0.8mm Light Pink Foamiran and also the 0.8mm White Foamiran, the pearl stamens and matt green stamens are from Love to Craft and Create, as is the  pink paper which is from the Lemoncraft Dreamy Mornings – Touch of the Sun paper.  The green woody paper is from my stash.

I love how this card turned out – I tend to shy away from bold colours but really love the pop the deep pink flowers give the card.

I finished off the flower spray with some waxed cord to soften the look a bit.

Foamiran Workshops in Nottingham

Oh my goodness, I am so so SO excited!  Ewa Constancja is coming back to the UK on 19-20th August to do three Foamiran workshops!  I was lucky enough to do her workshops last month in Nottingham and never, even if I watched You Tube videos for years, could I learn as much as I did in the day she taught us.  

I'm thinking places are going to go quick so if you want to be one of the lucky ones then get yourself across to the Foamiran Flowers Tips group on Facebook to get all the details.

The venue is literally a couple minutes off the motorway so really easy to get to.  Not even I got lost lol.
