Fuchsia flower card and Tutorial

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm excited to share a card and another flower tutorial today.  This flower is one of my favorite as well, the beautiful Fuchsia.  It's been a trial and error process, but I think this is the winning combination.  Hopefully you find it easy to make as I did.







Here is a tutorial on how I made these pretty fuchsia flowers ...

Materials:
McGill flower punch
Stamens
Stylus
Hot glue gun
Filter paper
Card stock 
1.  Using the round 5 petals flower, punch 2 of each color.
Using the pointed 5 petals flower, punch once with card stock.
2.  Curl the petals using the stylus.
3.  Pierce a hole in each. 
4.  Gather a few stamens and glue together.
5.  Add each petals to the stamen with hot glue.
and that is it!


Thanks for reading, hope you find this useful.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Much Love,
Chelsea

Heartfelt thanks






Hi there, it's been awhile!  I have a card to share today, this one is for a special blogger friend.  I hope she likes it.

I made the frame using air dry clay, I find that this type of clay is much lighter and harder to break then the regular molding clay, added my butterfly and some fabric flowers to soften the frame.  There are some embossing on the background using fran-tage then adding a layer of pretty bridal tulle on top.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you will have yourself a wonderful day!

with Love,

I also want to share a beautiful shabby chic card made my the talented and super sweet Jerri from A Touch of Grace.  Not only does she make gorgeous shabby style cards, her parchment craft is hands down the most amazing thing I've ever seen!  You must stop by to see for yourself, but here's her card made with my sheer fabric butterfly.

Gosh, isn't it so lush and gorgeous?!  I love her style and she is a great inspiration!  Thanks Jerri for adding my fabric butterfly to your work of art!
