Obsessed with Flowers

Hello everyone and thanks for coming by today! I hope your week is going well.
I seem to be slightly obsessed with making flowers at the moments as you will be able to see from the posts below. So when I needed a special card for someone, guess what the central feature was going to be? Yep, you got it, more flowers. Hope you are not getting sick of them.
These flowers were made with the Heartfelt Creations Ariana Blooms dies and stamps, just like the tag you can see HERE. I love the fact this die can make such different flowers, depending on how you shape and or colour them.
This time I stamped the flowers in Burgundy dye ink and then coloured them with Victorian Velvet Distress ink. The leaves were stamped with Sage coloured pigment ink, clear embossed and then coloured with Iced Spruce, Bundled Sage and a bit of Walnut Stain Distress ink.
The bottle, which I think is a Graphics 45 stamp, was stamped, fussy cut (the label is a separate stamp, which fits perfectly inside an open space in the main bottle stamp), shaped a bit and then I stamped it once more, cut out the pink part at the top and adhered that to the main bottle. It was adhered to the card using foam tape for a bit of dimension.
The clock is a Cheery Lynne die which I over stamped with a Crafty Individuals crackle stamp.

Finally the sentiment is from Stempelglede.
I cut it into a little tag shape and adhered it to the top. The background was created with Tim's Spritz and Flick technique and over stamped with various stamps from a Tim Visual Artistry set.
Thank you for visiting and see you next time!! Stay inky!!

  2. Please don't apologise for sharing more flowers Astrid, they are a sheet delight. I am thinking I really do need these Heartfelt stamps and rather like the clock as a change from the Timmy one.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
