Perfectly Preserved paper flowers

Good morning! Having been away for much of the weekend, I'm in catch-up mode so today I'm showing you a card I designed a little while ago to give to my lovely Stampers 6 club members. Come and have a look:

I used some of the paper daisies to pop into the acetate jar that you've seen me make before (click on Perfectly Preserved in my side bar index to see how carried away I've been with this beautiful jar!) I arranged the jar on a piece of 'wood' made with core'dinations card stock run through the Big Shot with the wonderful Woodgrain embossing folder and sanded back to reveal the lighter colour inside the card stock. The background was spritzed using a Summer Starfruit marker tucked into the Colour Spritzer Tool.

EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to mention that I have only one place left for my Stampers 6 group starting in November. Would you like to join? I really do look after my lovely members: In return for a minimum spend of £25 per month over 6 months you'll get to choose what goes in your parcel each month, you'll get free full-colour, glossy catalogues packed with ideas, freebies of at least £25 at the end of the 6 months, handmade cards and gifts from me each month and as much coaching from me as you'd like.

We had soup for lunch yesterday, which I served with crusty granary bread and little bowls of sliced salad vegetables, and I guess I'm not the only one in our family with a crafty streak...

Voila! My youngest son's radish and cucumber sculpture!

I'll be back tomorrow - perhaps with a Christmas card... after all, I'll be needing to actually send some of them in the post in 45 days!

  7. That jar is just brilliant Vicky, and what a fabulous card.

  8. Beautiful card, Vicky! I love the simplicity of it. Your son's sculpture made me smile - a healthy mini version of scooby doo's burgers!

  9. Hiya Vicky, that little jar is certainly working for it's living, you come up with so many ideas for it and All wonderful. Love the wood backing to this too.

  10. Love the sculpture !!!!! I am amazed at how crafty you are, you must be the most versatile person i know. This is so pretty and the spritzing is an amazing touch.


  11. Hi Vicky. Love the rustic natural look to your card.

    Per your comment on my post, If you can get Hubby to agree, I can highly recommend the Glasshouse in Edinburgh and yes you do need to sit down re price but we were lucky to be there on an Itison deal! Much more manageable.



I'd love to know what you think. Do leave me a comment - it always makes my day! Vicky x
