Good morning craft friends....

Wasn't yesterday's sun delightful!  So hot in the north east!

I used 4 of the double pierced square dies for the two frames and 3 dies from the 'Crocus' die set for the flowers and filigree leaves

The sentiment, I think, is from a Tonic Craft Kit and stamped with 'wilted violet' distress oxide ink

I also used the same oxide ink to colour white card for the violet crocuses

The base card is a 6" square


  • double pierced square die set - Creative Expressions
  • crocus die set - Tattered Lace
  • distress oxide ink - Ranger
  • sentiment - ?Tonic

As always if you would like to give this card a new home please comment on this   post by 6pm Friday.  We use Random.Name Picker to choose a winner therefore it doesn't matter if you have won previously

We also ship internationally at our own expense

Until tomorrow....

  2. Such a beautiful card and once again your flowers are superb.

    I've struggled for a few weeks to comment on your creations June and only discovered HOW TO today. I know you say you have not changed the format of your blog but it views on my phone differently- VERY differently. However my little gem of info if anyone else is in the same boat is . . . .that the COMMENT box and other pols comments are now ABOVE rather than below the card details. I know this is odd but it's prevented me joining in for awhile. If anyone can offer help then pls do xxx

    1. Thank you Pam

      I'm sorry you've been having trouble commenting on my blog. I use my desk top for all things that are technical so, unfortunately, I am unable to help you

      On my screen the comments section is still shown at the bottom of the post. May be a family member would be able to help you?

      Good luck!


  3. Love he colour!
    The detail on the crocus flower is lovely - is that all part of the die, or does it need an embossing folder as well?
    Love the while swirls - they add enough detail to lift the flower heads!
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Lyn

      The petals do have a 'score' mark on the die but this time I didn't emboss them as I thought they had a more 'natural' look. I bought this die set separately (eBay) so didn't have the embossing folder

      I do know that an embossing folder was included in Tattered Lace's first craft box
      set in January

      Hope that helps


    2. Thanks!! I like them as they are!! Maybe the embossing folder might be 'too much!'

  4. I adore this card, it's just beautiful
