Crocus, Cornflower… my Garden Colors

DreamSparrowFS275 blk

My garden of new Flower Soft colors that is!

I have several samples to share today, I just love the new colors… Crocus, Cornflower and Ultra Fine White!

For this card I used Our Daily Bread designs He Watches Me with matching Sparrow Die, coloring with Copics and adding Crocus to the thistles. The sentiment is from Dreams.


I decided to color this one as a House Finch…I just love to hear them sing, don’t you?!
Spellbinders Labels 18, Kraft layer trimmed around embossed area, white layer cut with same size in my Grand Calibur and Petite Ovals, black layer I traced around die and handcut. Then I stuck in some Fanciful Flourish from Cheery Lynn Designs.
The border punch is by EK Success. Embossing folders Swiss Dots and Kassie’s Brocade.

I love how it turned out!

Dreams TeaCup.

Here is my next example, using Springtime Card Toppers Collection. I finally bought a set last time I worked with Kelley at ODBD!
I stamped the quote from Dreams with Versafine Onyx Black then embossed with clear. The teacup image is already shaped similar to Labels 1 which I used to cut my card. I added some extra sponging around the edges before adding my Flower Soft.

Love how you've used the Flower Soft on these Dawn! I have several colors and I have hardly used them! Your first card is so pretty with the woven leaf stems - and the flower filled tea cup is just beautiful!

Dawn - Your cards are absolutely beautiful!

I love the colouring of the house finch. It is stunning! The flower soft on the thistle is the perfect addition!

I love how the flower soft is used on the second card. The tea cup and sentiment is so lovely.
