I really like this elegant swap design. It is from a set of oriental toppers I have had for a while

The colours are so nice, and I stayed with pink as much as possible, using dark blue for the layers and embellishment

I used a swirl die with a handmade bow to make the embellishment, Ive not made as many bows of late for my cards, as Im loving making flowers :D

Daisy Flower Card

I made this card to play with a recent floral die that I got - a sizzix daisy floral die.

I found the die works better with card, rather than paper, as then I can shape the petals. They are all cut out seperately and a little fiddly to put together, but I do like the affect.

I used a vintage backing paper, and various other cutting dies for the rest of the embellishments.
Something a little different, using mostly cutting dies to make most the elements.

The floral dies will take a bit more practice and would work fine flatter without the leaf section too.

This card was made with an Art Deco lady design, by Debbi Moore, from one of her craft mags

I used a black and white butterfly backing paper
And bright butterfly embellishment to finish off.

Not too fancy, but still a nice effect

Lady in Cream with Flower

I made this card with a Debbi Moore design, from one of her craft mags

Lovely detail in this elegant lady design

I used the backing paper that also came in the mag.

And I made the embellishment with two different Flower cutting dies, and a Swirl cutting die

Ive been trying 5x5 square cards too. A little challenging as I am working with a smaller space, but do like the square shape.

Cute Dog with Flowers

This cute design, was free with a craft mag.

The pack also came with backing papers, that blend well with the topper

I added an embossed layer in yellow and used butterfly cutting dies - cut out in glitter card - to decorate this section

A sweet little card :D

Lady in Pink

I made this card with a Debbi Moore topper, from one of her craft mags

Been nice to return to the toppers from the mags I have had last year, and get to use them.

Stayed with the pink tones, as much as possible.  So a lovely pink backing paper.

And nice pink and cream flower embellishments, made using a couple of different flower cutting dies.
Again, playing with the various shaped flower dies to product different shaped flowers.

Creative Friday Blog Link Party 5

For this weeks Creative Friday Blog Link Party, I made some flower toppers

These were made with a couple of new Cutting dies.

A Sizzix Flowers Intricate and the other is a Sizzix thinlit Mini Daisy

The daisy die was the hardest to figure out, I ended up having to watch a video on how that was used. Also it looks different using thinner papers to card.

The flowers intricate one is my favourite and I can combine it with another of my smaller flower dies :D
