FSS Tulip Bouquet with FSS Viney Flouish

Tomorrow (Friday) is the last day for the FSS Blog Hop!!! If you have not played along yet, please do so...ONE lucky hopper will get some awefully yummy prizes! My link to the hop is here.

For my post today I am continuing my card creations using some of Freds awesome flowers. The flower I chose to use for today's card is the Colored Tulip Bouquet. I also used the FSS Viney Flourish. I manipulated my design in photoshop and printed it out...added some Stickles to the flowers. I created the background layer using double sided adhesive sheet that I purchased from Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies. Tyler has some awesome customer service AND great products to use on my new LYNX! I took a bar of soap and ran it across the back of my Spellbinders Flourish Impressability so that when I laid it on the adhesive sheet it would not stick so bad. I pulled the top layer of the adhesive sheet off, laid the Impressability on the adhesive sheet and then sprinkled some pale yellow glitter I had from PK Glitz. Once the paper was covered, I pulled the Impressability off the adhesive sheet and then added the silver glitter so the pattern showed up better...I love the way it turned out and LOVE those adhesive sheets. I am sure I will find more uses for them as I get time to play. Here is how my creation turned out:
I hope you have had a great week...and I plan to do some heavy duty visiting as I have not had time to do much lately. Thanks for stopping in to see me!

FSS Petunias

If you are looking for the FSS Blog Hop post please go here.

Hello, hope your Sunday has been a great one. We here in central Illinois have been blessed with another 2 inches of rain this weekend to top off the 8 we received during the week. Needless to say I have had plenty of time to create cards as I can't be outside! There is always a silver lining if we look for it! :) So I have been on a roll here creating cards with Tracey's will be seeing them throughout the week and I think I will extend the idea into some bird cards a little later on.
For this card, I used the peach petunias from the Wee Hummingbirds and Petunias colored set. Although you may not be able to see this in the picture, I printed them twice and pop dotted the second layer for dimension. On the base layer I embossed with the Sizzix Scallop and Loop Ribbon embossing folder. The next layer was created using the EK Success Doily border this is not a punch around the page punch...I followed the same technique that I had done in an earlier card...the technique is here. It does take some time to get this accomplished but it sure does give a new meaning to those punches rather than just using them for border punching. The next layer I had outlined with Scor-Tape and then added some glitter to the  layer. I am really pleased with how this card turned out. Hope you enjoyed my creation. Have a great day today! Thanks tons for stopping in!
