On the weekend of the Great Flood here in Leeston I had flown out early Saturday morning to Auckland for a team training event. We usually make cards to swap amongst ourselves and my one used…. Yes you guessed it Simply Pressed Clay blossoms and the Gingham Standard Wheel! I promise I will show you something different next time : )
I broke out Everything Eleanor again for her elegant swirl, gorgeous flowers and pretty motif, then using all of the new In colours created my swap cards. It was interesting to see which colours went first ( I gave the ladies the choice) First to go was Pistachio Pudding then Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana leaving me a couple of spare Strawberry Slush.
The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake and the Elegant Butterflies are embossed using the snowflake design from Delicate Designs Embossing Folders. I spritzed the cards after stamping and before attaching any of the layers with Baked Brown Sugar ink/Water mix with just a wee touch of the Vanilla Smooch Spritz added in a Stampin’ Spritzer bottle. I really needed to speed up my flower production for the volume of cards I was making so I hatched a cunning plan. Add dazzling diamonds to the molds before I pushed in the clay and then they popped right out so I could put them aside to dry. My wee Air New Zealand tea spoons are just the best for getting tiny amounts of glitter or embossing powder in just the right place! And just to finish the card off I added a double bow using Whisper White Bakers Twine and some diamantes to the Butterfly
