Garden Flowers


Today i'm sharing a card i made for the Curtian Call Inspiration Challenge - Farm Fresh challenge. I pulled out my October Afternoon: Farm Girl collection for inspiration, mainly because it is a farm inspired pack and i really have no other farm like stamps as i don't really care for that kind of style. This collection has some really nice farm images and such, but not surprisingly i'm was drawn to the pretty flower pattern that is included in the collection.

I'm also using some new product i purchased a little bit ago. Now if you follow my blog long enough you might realize that i made a new years resolution not to buy any more crafty supplies..... well that lasted about 3 months!!! However, i just stopped by Michael's and Joann's and didn;t really feel any need to add to my crafty supplies, i am realizing that i would rather purchase supplies from various companies online, supplies that you just can't get at the big 3 (don't forget Hobby Lobby!!) And really i just don't need the $1 pearls in the discount section, no matter how many colors they come in!! lol

Ok so on to my card, oh and the new purchase i made are these tiny flower die cuts from A Muse Studio! I LOVE them! You will be seeing them a lot! I love they size: Tiny, but oh so perfect for cards!!

To start i trimmed the flower pattern paper to match my Kraft card base, then punched a border along the bottom. I also added a touch of distress ink along the edge. Next i used a journal card from the Farm Girl collection that said Garden on it, kind of like a flash card looking card. I added a pink word element to the journal card with a tiny paper clip.

Next i die cut several tiny flowers from different pattern papers in the collection. I also die cut some flowers from tea stained canvas that i have laying around. I adhered the flowers to the journal card, some with foam dots. Then i added the journal card to my card base with foam dots and last stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. I love those little die cuts, so cute and they go perfectly with the paper!

  2. Your flowery garden is simply lovely, Dana! The teeny flowers are *the* perfect special touch! Gorgeous! I had a giggle with your 3 month non-buying-crafty-stuff comments! I'm following a similar path; I'd rather buy online (even cutting a wee bit on that, because of our Canadian $ being so low...grrr), too. One of these days, I'll win a lottery...*grin*!

  3. What a lovely card Dana. Those tiny flowers are so sweet and I love the colors. The garden journaling card looks great. What a great take on the photo. Thank you for playing along with us at Curtain Call Inpsiration Challenge.

  4. Okay, this is ADORABLE. Love love love all those tiny blooms! I dunno, lasting 3 months without buying anything is a cause for a celebration in my book...I think you should buy more stuff:) I don't think I could ever last 3 months...sigh.

    Thanks for joining us at Curtain Call!

  5. This is bursting with spring delights, Dana!! Congratulations, on the well-deserved recognition from Curtain Call!! Hugs, Darnell
