Two cards for a Princess Challenge

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

Hello, my name is Leigh and I'm a craft-a-holic.

I've been this way for over eight years (if not longer!) but lately my obsession has taken a new form.

I'm addicted to making these...


I recently went through my scrap patterned paper organizer and selected a bunch of papers to use with my PTI bloom builder #3 die to make them.

From there, I can just choose a bloom to add to a card, or start with a bloom and make a card or layout with it. It's great!

This week, I made two cards this way for Dianne's Papertrey Princess Challenge to use the colour red.

Here's the first one:


For this card, I used PTI cardstock (pure poppy, aqua mist), stamps (Think Big Favourites #4) and die (Fillable Frames #10, Bloom Builders #3). I also used My Mind's Eye (bloom) & Cosmo Cricket (postcard) patterned paper and a MME decorative brad.

Here's a close up:


And, here's the second one:


For this card, I used PTI cardstock (pure poppy, aqua mist), stamps (Happy Trails) and dies (Bloom Builders #3). I also used Cosmo Cricket patterned paper and a My Mind's Eye decorative brads.

Thanks for looking!

You are too funny. And, I love those cards. Seeing all those bloom builder flowers together is really something. I am hoping to get my replacement die soon, and then I can start cutting, too.

Pretty flowers made prettier by the cute brads! :D

Deb said...

Love those blooms! I may have to get my hands on that.

Kara said...

Leigh I am in awe! I have almost given up on my die as I haven't managed a single successful cut yet, having tried every possible permutation of sandwiches in my cuttlebug, trying all of the suggestions on the forum and wasting a ton of cardstock! So well done you and I love these two cards.

Both cards are pretty. Never would have thought the red & aqua would work so nicely together.
I too am an addict. However, I just don't see to have the time I need to make cards. It takes me forever just to make 1 card. Maybe we should start Stamper's Annonomyous.

You're so funny. Both of your cards are amazing..no surprise there. I'm with you on those flowers. I just can't get enough of them.

Fabulous cards madame! I especially am smitten with the first card and your clever combination of pattern papers and stamping. Cool as. I am so pleased you are hooked on those blooms. You do do them so very well. I hope you don't go and do something silly like try and kick the habit. LOL Keep on keeping on!
