Good morning friends, hope today finds you all well rested and in good health. I also want to take this moment to thank all the Veterans out there that gave their lives and sacrificed their time to make is free and able to enjoy our freedoms. Happy Memorial Day.
Recently I sat down to create a card and while sitting there, I noticed on another card I made the beautifu leaves and thought how pretty they would be as a flower and so I gave it a whirl.
For the leaf petals I used the Fun Stampers Journey Blooming Details Die set, and Butter Cream Card Stock and for the word Love, I used the FSJ Die set..Snap Shot Frames and the Pineapple Smoothie Card stock.
I added some Pearls from Fun Stamper Journey, and the sentiment was stamped using Oatmeal Cookie ink and from the Stamp set..Every day Script.
I cut out 5 of the smaller and bigger leaf images with my FSJ Platinum die cutting machine and then glued them in a circle with FSJ Journey Glaze..awesome glue for a good strong hold.
Thanks for peeking in..I ahope In inspired you to give this a try:)

Fun Stampers Journey. Below is a photo of what the kit will help you create with all the pre cut card stock and embellishments!!
I used the stamp set and stamped the small daisy several times using Black licorice ink as well as Lemongrass, and then fussy cut them out. I then used my favorit go to Die set.. Blooming Details and cut out the leaves in the Mirror Silver specialty paper. I attached them with Journey Craft glue and some FSJ Square foam adhesives.
From a previous card I made I had used Sweet Pear card stock and cut out a fern with the Die..Mystic Fern Die. and saved the CS to use the Negative part of the cut..I then placed a piece of licorice black CS to glue to the back of the open part of the fern cut . This mat wa then sprinkled with silver and the Electric lime Silk. Lastly I glued the finished mat to the 4 and 1/4 by 5 1/2 whip cream card base.
This month the Silks and Splashes are on special for 20% off with our Splish Splash Sparkle sale
I hope you enjoyed the card today and will come back again... please take a moment and leave a comment <3
Happy Crafting~ Cathy
