Creative Expressions Tuesday Blog


I'm back again for my regular Tuesday blog post with a very glitzy card ! This looks very complicated but is in fact very simple because the design is random but repetitive.


I cut three pieces of black card , a large square and then two rectangles that would layer over the square as you can see . I stamped and embossed with gold powder the two larger images from the stamp set . Where there were any obvious gaps I used the single flowers from the set to fill the gaps .

Using Irridescent Shimmering Watercolour paints I painted the flowers in various colours from the palette. I coloured all the flowers on the central panel and only a few on the base and quote panels . I stamped and embossed the quote into the centre of the smallest panel . All the panels were then mounted onto gold card .


Using the same colours from the paint palette I coloured some paper flowers so that they would tone with the background.l also coloured some stick pins with gold paint .

The panels were attached to the background using foam pads and the whole was attached to a black card blank . I used dimensional glue to attach the flowers and pins to finish the card .
As I saw d this is easy to make but looks great ! Black and gold together always look great . 
To make this card I used :
Just Rite clear stamp set , Pinwheel Daisies .
Creative Expressions clear stamp set Stitched Letters .
Irridescent Shimmering Watercolour Paints, Set nine , Chic and Frosted .
Creative Expressions Finishing Touches, Pearl topped Stick Pins .
Bye for now , back next week .

  3. I don't know if you are aware or even if you can do anything about it but I am finding I can not pin your cards. It is always blocked and says it may lead to spam. Perhaps Pinterest can do something about this. I hope this helps.
