Stamper's Ten June Challenge Card

Joanne, my SU! demo, always gives her Stamper's Ten group members some bits and pieces every month and challenges us to make a card with them. In June we got the flower element (pre shaped and assembled, yay!), Real Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue CS, a piece of Summer Picnic DSP and Real Red grosgrain ribbon. I didn't use my Bashful Blue piece of CS.

I used my fave new Go Kreate Frame Pointy #1 dies - I can't stop using them! - for the DSP and Pumpkin layers. I punched an Olive circle to mount the flower element on. Before attaching the flower, I arranged the ribbon and glued on a die cut leaf shape. I used my DEET tool to add veining to the leaf.

The three flowers were made using the smallest flower on the Boho Blossoms punch. I've used an embossing tool on a moulding mat to add shaping to the flowers and then I've popped on clear crystal centres. I've used my Ellison Frame die for the sentiment - I think it goes with the Go Kreate die shapes beautifully!

This is beautiful too. You are getting great use out of that wonderful die. I just got myself an embossing tool. I can't wait to try it.. Have a super day...
