Cherry Cobbler Flowers

Card/Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive

Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Cheer and Wishes

Other: Scallpo Trim Border Punch

Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm (approx 4" x 6")

This is a stampers ten make and take that we did a while back. One of my favourite sets, I love the flowers on this set, and the leafy flourish. The flowers were stamped on to scrap, cut out and then given a little shaping before fixing to the card. Below I have shown two options for finishing the centre of the large flower. The first one is more practical for posting, with just a little shaped circle inverted over a blob of pva. The second has stamens made by snipping a strip of card into a fine fringe, then rolling up and spreading the fringing to make a much more dimensional centre.

a little stamping to finish off inside . . .

A couple of days ago, I think I somehow pinched a nerve in my back or hip, and was in a lot of pain, and was having trouble bending, sitting down and standing up. I was very slowly and painfully working my way out of bed a couple of mornings ago, and saying to Amy (8 years old) that I was like an old woman. Her reply: "Well, you're kind of old - you are 50!"

Feeling much better now though. This afternoon I leaned forward whilst sitting at my desk, and felt something go twang - all of a sudden the pain and stiffness was vastly reduced, so guess whatever was pinched is un-pinched now . . . thank goodness!

This is lovely Joanne - it's made me want to get my Vintage Vogue set out! I love the layering of the leafy flourish and the dimensional flowers, and the inside of the card is finished beautifully. Glad you managed (somehow!) to sort out the pinched nerve - those things are horribly painful! Vx
