Elegant Birds Party
Christmas in July

Fun Flowers - Guest Artist

Today I have a really lovely card to share with you - one that's fairly easy to make, but is no less sophisticated for it's simplicity.

I also have the pleasure of introducing my mum Jenny to you - many of you have already met her at my stamping events and she came to Convention Mum at Conventionwith us this year - well today's gorgeous card is made by her!

That's mum at Convention admiring a gorgeous project which one very talented demonstrator created. So sorry her name completely fails me at the moment, but I am sure it will come to me as soon I hit send on this message!

This quilt is made with a combination of Stampin' Up! Fabrics and images and the talented created has embroided and stitched beyond anything I could even image - mum and I were both in awe of this totally gorgeous work!

If anyone does happen to remember this talented lady's name, please leave it in the comments below so we can acknowledge her skill!

Back to mum's card! A friend is having a significant birthday soon, so mum came over and had a practice with the Big Shot and some lovely flower dies - Fun Flowers Bigz L Die & Blossom Party (all from Stampin' Up!) and we raided our stash of "retired" card stock to pick some pretty colours - Lovely Lilac and Cameo Coral.

The base card is Confetti White -and interestingly some of specks in the card appeared to be exactly Cameo Coral and Lovely Lilac! She used the colour spritzer tool to add a bit more colour to the base card, and embossed the front with another Big Shot product - a textured embossing folder.

The flowers were cut out, spritzed with Vanilla Smooch Spritz then layered onto the card with brads, some Little Leaves were added and the final touch was just a delicate greeting on the top so as not to detract from the bold flowers.

I think it came up a treat and I am sure the recipient is going to love it! Well done Mum, it's a gorgeous card and you did a great job with it - so excited for you, that your own Big Shot is going to arrive any day now!

If you'd like to see how these flowers are made, or even to purchase a Big Shot or accessories, then please get in touch with me to arrange a free demonstration for you! You can even get a Big Shot for free with our current hostess benefits!! Email me today if you'd like to know how! kathryn@katlodesigns.com
