Handmade Flowers

The lovely new challenge blog, for its second week at Fashionable Stamping Challenges have set the challenge of Handmade Flowers. I love the stamp I used from Crafty Individuals, CI 148, it can be used in so many ways. I decided to add distressing to this card, it just happened that way. for the backing sheet I used one from a K & Co Basic Grey pack, stamped leaves on it and distressed with Vintage Photo. I found in my lace box a beautiful piece of cream and brown lace, which was perfect to lay the matted image onto.
The flowers and leaves were made with paper from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby Paper Stash. I call them spiral roses and they are so easy to make. Pop here to see how I made them. 


  1. Wow Caz! Another stunner. All the elements are so pretty and the flowers just gorgeous.
    Thanks for entering in the Fashionable Stamping Challenge too and good luck!
    Hugs, Fliss xx
