Stray Flowers

 The other day I used some stray die cut mice and today I have a card to share which has used up some stray flowers and leaves from the tray on my desk.  I started off by using a large octagon die to cut the base card - makes a change from my usual square ones!  Next I cut more octagons using smaller dies using white and different shades of green card.  A few flowers and leaves were arranged in a little spray, everything layered up and glued and there we have it - yet another card for my ever growing supply of finished ones.

The sun is shining this morning and it looks as if we are in for a pleasant weekend, weather-wise anyway even though it is quite a bit cooler than of late.  Enjoy 😷🙂

Larger Octagons - die set from Daisy Mae Designs
Smaller Octagons - die set from Tonic
Sentiment - from my usual free set given with magazine ages ago
Flowers and Leaves - 'spares' from various sets,  kept in a tray on my desk

  6. Hi Val

    I love this very much.

    A great shape and lots of lovely layers.

    I have a box that I have put all my magazine freebies in .. .. I think I need to go through that and see what sentiments and images are lurking in there! Not somewhere I look very often .. tut, tut!

    Great mixture of die cuts and lovely colours.

    Hope your weather is decent today. We have sunshine at the moment but it is a bit windy.

    Love Jules xx

  7. What an amazing die set and one I have never heard of. Looks lovely with your flowers. Sat in Summer house with the doors shut as it is very windy here today. Hugs Mrs A.

  8. Just changed devices as not sure my comment worked . I love this unusual die shape and oopsy found it on line. Might have accidentally knocked it off the shelf and what do you know a couple of others things tumbled down as well.! Hugs Mrs A.

  9. Such a gorgeous card Val, I love the Daisy Mae Dies too.

  10. What a gorgeous shaped card Val and the Daisy Mae octagons with that unusual style with the little bits missing, I love that, and the pretty added flowers which go beautifully with the green and white layers, such a crisp and clean look. Thank you so much for all your visits to my blog, I am sorry I haven't visited for ages but mean to do so in the future. All your lovely comments are really appreciated. x
