A Bouquet of Flowers from Scribbles Designs

The great thing about being a GD with Scribbles Designs is being able to pick any of the wonderful images to work with. This time I have chosen one of the many floral ones to make up a spring bouquet. It could be for a birthday, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Get Well, Sympathy, Thank You, Thinking of You . . . any occassion really. I have gone with Thinking of You.

Materials used:
Scribbles Designs – Flower Set 1
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
X-Press It! card
Copic pens
doily die
silver tissue paper
white spotty tissue paper
silver ribbon

Because all the flowers, leaves and the sentiments are in one combined image I used the crop featuree in Word to issolate the elements I needed for my bouquet. Having arranged them on my page I printed them on X-Press It card and coloured them with Copics.

I fussy cut all the elements and then made up the individual flowers with the flower head, stalk and leaves, shaping the flower heads as I went. I then made my flowers into a bunch and wrapped them in a triangle of spotty tissue paper and tied them with the silver ribbon. I added a few extra leaves where I could see a gap so that there was not too much white background showing through.

I cut a doily from the silver tissue and attached it to the front of an A5 card blank then positioned and attached the bouquet on the top.

Finally I stamped the greeting on the front in black ink.

If my card has inspired you, why not head on over to the Scribbles Designs Store. They have some unusual designs and lots of freebies you can try.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
