Shabby Chic Flowers


     These are a few shabby chic flowers I made using techniques I learned from Fiona over at YouTube.  Her channel is jennings644.  She is fantastic!  The fabric is quilting fabric from Tim Holtz.  It is the Clocks pattern.  The largest flower is made with about 20” x 2” of fabric.  The one on the bottom is about 7”x"2” (folded over length ways, so no open edges were showing).  The last flower is about 5”x2”(and folded like the second flower).  Some people call the smaller ones lollipop flowers.  The lace a beautiful cream lace.  The centers are all clay pieces that I created myself.  I created the two smaller molds using buttons.  The rose is a mold by Mod Podge.  I used white Sculpey clay and then painted them.  I keep a stockpile on hand for when I need them…lolSmile  I added some Glossy Accents around the edge of the rose and dipped it in some white gold micro beads.  On the smaller flowers I just dripped a few micro beads on the centers as the paint dried.  I also made the stickpin.  It is made with pearls and silver bead caps.  Lots of fun!  TFL!

Fun Stair Step Card


     I just found out a friend from Church is having a baby girl.  So, I wanted to make a quick card to congratulate her and her husband.  This is a stair step card I got at the Silhouette store.  The file is by Lori Whitlock.  The cardstock is from Core’dinations.  The patterned paper is from DCWV.  The wood paper is real wood!  I got it on clearance at Michaels a while ago.  It cut in my Cameo like a dream.  The only issue with it was that it would splinter a bit when I was working with it.  I like how it worked out.  Thanks for looking!
