More Dahlias

A few more dahlia cards.  I tried playing with copics on the first 3 (still needs a lot of practice! ... the lighter colors are more forgiving =D).  I'm getting my money's worth on this stamp set from PTI which I originally bought because of the leaves now I love the whole set!

Doilies and Dahlias

Doilies are everywhere in the crafting world so I decided to try my hand on one and I'm loving it.  It gives the card a different dimension.  Since the doily is bright white I inked it a little to make it blend.  For the flower I used PTI's Delightful Dahlia stamp and dies with a couple of buttons with twine. 
On this card I used the same Dahlia dies but tried it on felt.  I layered scalloped strips of paper to create a ruffle effect.  All paper used is from PTI.


I want to get caught up with my scrapbooking and I decided to start with my little girl's baby album.  It will have a flowers and butterflies theme and using one paper line (Brenda Walton's Small Wonders).  For the flowers, I punched 3 different sizes of scallop circles and inked the edges then I snipped it to make each petal longer.  I layered it from largest to smallest and finished it off with a pearl brad.  The butterflies were punched from Martha Stewart's various butterfly punches then inked the edges. For the smaller ones I also layered them from biggest to smallest and attached some adhesive pearls.

Cards with Pearls - Cards Blog Challenge

This week's Cards Blog Challenge is Cards with Pearls.  I used Cuttlebug embossing folders for the wedding cake and background then added skittles and pearls on the cake and matted it on a Spellbinder's Label 4. I used PTI for all the paper and stamp sentiment.
